Panasonic delivers DVCPro HD VTR

Panasonic has announced the immediate availability of the AJ-HD1700 DVCPRO HD VTR. It provides extended recording times, superior slow motion and low tape costs for HD program production, distribution and archiving.



The AJ-HD1700 can convert 24fps footage acquired by Panasonic's AJ-HDC27 VariCam HD Cinema camera to 1080/24p, allowing the VTR to act as a source deck in a 1080/24p-based linear or non-linear editing bay.

Engineered for mobile vehicle, production studio or editing suite, the AJ-HD1700 VTR can record for up to 126 minutes in either 1080/60i, 1080/50i or 720/60p high-definition formats on a single AJ-HP126EX cassette. The low tape cost of operation is achieved by the use of 9-micron track width recording, which delivers twice the recording density of existing DVCPRO HD recorders plus editing reliability due to editing-point guard tracks, a double-head playback system, new metal-in-gap (MIG) heads and powerful error-correction circuitry.

The AJ-HD1700 can also convert 24fps footage acquired by Panasonic's AJ-HDC27 VariCam HD Cinema camera to 1080/24p, allowing the VTR to act as a source deck in a 1080/24p-based linear or non-linear editing bay. Source VTR operation in 1080/25p is also supported for PAL television applications. The AJ-HD1700 is currently shipping.
