Panasonic to expand P2 DVCPro HD offerings

February 23, 2006

At NAB2006, Panasonic will expand its offering of P2 DVCPRO solid-state capture in the realm of multiformat HD products recording.

The new P2 DVCPRO HD products offer Panasonic’s P2 solid-state memory recording without the moving parts of other tape, hard disk and optical disc based systems.

The new multiformat P2 DVCPRO HD products offer the ability to record in 720p, 1080i or 480i. P2 DVCPRO HD products offer full bandwidth, contribution-quality HD with independent intra-frame encoding, 4:2:2 color sampling, and less compression than long GOP MPEG-2 systems. In addition, they are backwards compatible with existing DVCPRO50, DVCPRO and DV-based facilities.

The new members of the P2 DVCPRO HD product family will include the 2/3in AJ-HPC2000 shoulder-mount camcorder, AJ-HPS1500 studio recorder, the AJ-HPM100 mobile recorder/player and the AJ-PCD20 P2 drive. In addition, the AG-HVX200, a handheld P2 DVCPRO HD camcorder, is currently available.
