Panasonic has announced the availability of the AJ-HDX900 2/3in DVCPRO HD camcorder, which offers the ability to transfer high-definition images easily via its IEEE 1394 digital output.
The AJ-HDX900 provides 4:2:2 sampling and intra-frame recording at 100Mb/s in 11 high definition formats. The camera supports 1080 59.94i/50i/29.97p/25p/23.98p/23.98pA and 720 59.94p/50p/29.97p/25p/23.98p (60Hz and 50Hz production) for high-end productions.
With a 14-bit A/D conversion and a 12-axis color correction matrix, the AJ-HDX900 offers three Cine-like gamma curve modes to replicate the film look and a Dynamic Range Stretching (DRS) function.
The AJ-HDX900 comes with an IEEE 1394 digital output that lowers the cost of HD production by allowing video professionals to connect directly with nonlinear editing systems and VTRs, such as the AJ-HD1400, and record while simultaneously making a backup copy on the external device.
