Panasonic shows updated VariCam at IBC


The new Varicam’s signal processing is improved with sampling increased from 10 to 12 bits which equates to better signal-to-noise and a greater dynamic range when using the HDSDI output.
Panasonic updated its VariCam variable frame rate camcorder at IBC2005. The new AJ-HDC27HE inherits the basic design and features of its predecessors while adding enhancements.

Improvements include a newly developed 3-CCD system enhancing performance throughout the camcorder. The camera’s signal processing is improved with sampling increased from 10- to 12 bits which equates to better signal-to-noise and a greater dynamic range when using the HDSDI output. Even when recording in-camera the pictures will be significantly improved.

The camcorder has new high-resolution emulation mode. It is adjustable in camera and gives greater control of the overall sharpness of the images. The lens mount has been strengthened and lens files can be written to an SD Memory Card.

The updated model also features two individual HD-SDI outputs and frame rate switching that can now be assigned to a user button for easier access while shooting.
