Panasonic provides Collins College with AJ-HDC27 VariCam HD cinema camera

December 1, 2006

Panasonic’s AJ-HDC27 VariCam HD Cinema camera is helping to expand HD education in Arizona as Collins College, a newly expanded design school, incorporates the high-quality camera into its visual arts curriculum.

Panasonic’s AJ-HDC27 VariCam replicates many of the key features of film-based image acquisition, including 24-frame progressive scan images, time lapse recording and a wide range of variable frame rates (4fps to 60fps in single-frame increments) for overcranked and undercranked off-speed in-camera effects. The AJ-HDC27 VariCam also features CineGamma software that permits Panasonic’s HD Cinema camera systems to more closely match the latitude of film stocks.

With campuses in Phoenix and Tempe, AZ, Collins College provides students with hands-on learning and experience with industry-current video and computer equipment for curricula based in animation, game design and visual arts.
