From the Manufacturer

Panasonic AG-3DA1 is the world's first professional; fully-integrated Full HD 3D camcorder that records to SD card media. The AG-3DA1 willdemocratize 3D production by giving professional videographers a more affordable; flexible; reliable and easier-to-use tool for capturing immersive content as well as providing a training tool for educators.

At less than 6.6 pounds; the AG-3DA1 is equipped with dual lenses and two full 1920 x 1080 2.07 megapixel 3-MOS imagers to record 1080/60i; 50i; 30p; 25p and 24p (native) and 720/60p and 50p in AVCHD. It can record for up to 180 minutes on dual 32GB SD cards in Panasonic's professional AVCHD PH mode; and offers professional interfaces including dual HD-SDI out; HDMI (version 1.4); two XLR connectors; built-in stereo microphone and twin-lens camera remotes.

AG-3DA1's Major Specifications:
• Twin-lens Full HD 3D camcorder (made-to-order)
• Power Consumption: Under 19 W (main unit only)
• Weight: Under 6.6 pounds (3 kg) -- main unit only
• Recording Media: SDHC/SD Memory Card

Easier to Use
Current 3D systems are large-scale setups in which two cameras are fitted to a rig in parallel; or vertically intersect across a half-mirror. Separate recorders are also required. In the AG-3DA1; the lenses; camera head; and a dual Memory Card recorder are integrated into a single; lightweight body. The camcorder also incorporates stereoscopic adjustment controls making it easier to use and operate.

The twin-lens system adopted in the camcorder's optical section allows the convergence point** to be adjusted. Functions for automatically correcting horizontal and vertical displacement are also provided. Conventional 3D camera systems require these adjustments to be made by means of a PC or an external video processor. This new camcorder; however; will automatically recalibrate without any need for external equipment; allowing immediate 3D image capture.

More Flexible
The solid-state memory file-based recording system offers greater flexibility to produce Full HD 3D videos in more challenging shooting environments. The AG-3DA1 is lighter weight and smaller than current 3D rigs; while providing the flexibility of handheld-style shooting. Setup and transportation is simplified; making it ideal for sports; documentary and filmmaking projects.

Solid-State Reliability and Workflow
Right and left Full HD video streams of the twin-lens 3D camcorder can be recorded as files on SDHC/SD Memory Cards; ensuring higher reliability than on other tape; optical disc; HDD or other mechanical-based recording systems. This solid-state; no-moving-parts design will help significantly reduce maintenance costs; and the AG-3DA1 will be better able to perform in extreme environments and be more resistant to temperature extremes; shock; and vibration.

And users will enjoy a fast; highly-productive file-based workflow; with instant; random access to recorded content; easy plug-in to both Mac and PC-based platforms; and longer recording capacity.

More Affordable
Using a standardized; fully integrated design; the AG-3DA1 is being offered at a much lower price than traditional 3D rigs. Transportation expenses for this handheld unit will be less and faster setup times reduce labor costs. Using standard; re-recordable SDHC/SD Memory Cards available already everywhere; media costs become almost insignificant.

In addition to a camcorder; Panasonic also announced the BT-3DL2550; a 25" professional-quality 3D Full HD LCD monitor for field use; and the AG-HMX100; a professional HD digital AV mixer for live 3D event production. Panasonic will offer professional production equipment to allow video professionals to efficiently create 3D content; so consumers can enjoy 3D video using Panasonic 3D home theater systems.
