The latest version of Adobe Creative Suite Production Premium (CS4) software natively supports all Panasonic AVCHD format camcorders, meaning no transcoding or rewrapping is required. This will save users time and streamline the workflow for those shooting with AVCHD camcorders.
AVCHD, the H.264/AVC High Profile compression format, provides significant bandwidth efficiencies and improved video performance over MPEG-2 compression used in HDV formats.
Panasonic’s new AG-HMC150 professional 3-CCD handheld camcorder offers 1080/720 AVCHD recording at bit rates up to 24Mb/s, while recording to solid-state SD memory cards. Other cameras offered include the AG-HMC150 handheld and AG-HMC70 shoulder-mount models.
