About Panasonic AG-HPD24PJ

The Panasonic AG-HPD24PJ is a portable P2 solid-state AVC-Intra recorder featuring native 1080/24p recording with variable frame rates; a super-fast USB 3.0 interface; and 24-bit, four-channel audio recording in AVC-Intra 100/50. With two P2 card slots and battery operation, the HPD24PJ's rugged, half-rack design holds up to the demands of field production, yet it is small and light at 4.41 pounds for easy transport.

This ultra-reliable, dedicated deck allows users to playback and review P2 cards on its 3.5", 16:9 LCD screen; manage clip files and metadata; record full resolution, 10-bit 4:2:2 master-quality video content from a wide range of Panasonic and non-Panasonic cameras via its HD-SDI input; and can also backup data onto hard disk drives.

The AG-HPD24PJ is ultra versatile, supporting a wide range of high definition and standard definition recording formats including 1080 60i/50i/25p/24p, 720 60p/50p/24p and 480/60i, 576/50i in DVCPRO50, DVCPRO and DV. The unit plays back HD/SD content automatically (no need to change settings) and is internationally operable in 50 Hz or 60 Hz. For 3D production, its 3D sync function offers master-quality, full resolution 3D recording and playback with a high-quality AVC-Intra codec when two units, one for the Left channel and one for the Right channel, are connected

A key feature of the HPD24PJ is its "SuperSpeed" USB 3.0 host interface that allows super-fast transfer rates of up to 1.6 Gbps. Transferring data to low-cost hard disk drives or solid-state drives is achieved quickly and easily with its SuperSpeed USB 3.0. Its HDMI output enables the HPD24PJ to transmit uncompressed digital data to an array of consumer playback devices, including projectors and digital televisions. In addition, when attached to a computer, the USB device mode allows the HPD24PJ to become a two-card P2 drive. Using two 64 GB P2 cards in the HPD24PJ's two card slots, the unit can record for about 128 minutes in AVC-Intra 100 or DVCPRO HD, approximately 256 minutes in AVC-Intra 50 or DVCPRO50, or about 512 minutes in DVCPRO/DV.

Panasonic AG-HPD24PJ Features

  • AVC-Intra Codec: The AVC-Intra codec further advances HD production. It complies with the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 international standard based on advanced image compression technology and offers both superb image quality and highly efficient compression
  • AVC-Intra 100: With the same bit rate as DVCPRO HD, this mode gives you full 10-bit recording with 1920 x 1080 pixels. It captures master-quality video for high-end image production
  • AVC-Intra 50: This mode delivers video quality very similar to that of DVCPRO HD with 1440 x 1080 pixels, yet is able to do so at bit rates usually associated with standard definition (e.g. DVCPRO 50). AVC-Intra 50's lower bit rate doubles the recording time and cuts the data transfer time in half
  • 24PsF Compatible, HD/SD Multi-Format: Handling a wide range of HD formats, such as 1080p, 1080i and 720p, the AG-HPD24 can be switched between 59.94 Hz and 50 Hz to adapt to the world's HD broadcasting formats. The AG-HPD24 supports 1080/24p native recording and playback with the AVC-Intra codec
  • Up/Down/Cross-Conversion: The AG-HPD24 can convert up or down between HD and SD or cross-convert between 720p and 1080i during playback. It also features an aspect conversion function
  • VariCam Speed Effects: The AG-HPD24 can extract active frames from VFR (variable frame rate) signals output by a VariCam and record them in 720/24p. VariCam, like 60p pull-down output, can also be provided by playing back a video clip in a P2 card recorded in native 720/24p by the AJ-HPX2700
  • Gamma Conversion for Cinema Production: This function converts images recorded by a VariCam or images recorded in the Film Rec mode of the AJ-HPX3100 to the same kind of film-like look as the Telecine 5 or Telecine 6 mode of the AJ-GBX27G HD Gamma Corrector
  • High-Quality 24-Bit Audio Recording: AVC-Intra mode features high-quality 24-bit digital audio recording. You can select either 24-bit, 4-channel or 16-bit, 8-channel recording. DVCPRO HD mode provides 16-bit, 8-channel and DVCPRO 50/DVCPRO/DV mode includes 16-bit, 4-channel recording
  • Excellent Reliability and Mobility with the P2 Card: The P2 card offers a large capacity of up to 64 GB in a small, lightweight package. Its rugged design withstands even harsh professional use. It is highly resistant to temperature fluctuations, dust, impact and vibration
  • Advanced Recording Functions Employing Two Card Slots: In addition to continuous, double-card recording, the AG-HPD24 enables some useful recording functions that are possible only with memory cards
  • Hot-Swap Rec: Thanks to the two card slots, you can hot-swap P2 cards for continuous non-stop recording. With multiple cards you can record for hours without interruption
  • Auto Rec: This function automatically starts recording in response to SDI video input
  • Loop Rec: This function continuously records video data onto available memory card areas. When the card becomes full, older data is deleted to free up the recording area, resulting in loss-less, endless recording
  • Text Memo: When recording or previewing a clip, you can attach a memo (similar to a bookmark) at a desired location (up to 100 locations on a frame basis). The simplified editing function lets you copy a segment between memos and create a new clip
  • Shot Marker: During or after recording, you can mark each clip with OK, NG, or another designation
  • Clip Metadata: This function lets you browse and edit metadata, such as the name of the camera operator and reporter, shooting location and text memos. Text data can also be easily inserted by connecting a USB or software keyboard and metadata files can be uploaded from an SD/SDHC card
  • USB Keyboard Connection: The USB 2.0 keyboard terminal lets you connect an ordinary USB keyboard for easy metadata text input. A software keyboard is also provided
  • Clip Thumbnail Display with Free Clip Sequencing: Using the clip thumbnail (image list) display, you can select clips for instant playback, deletion, copying, or resequencing. This makes it easy to gather and display clips for broadcasting or editing
  • Format Auto Playback: This automatically detects the video format and codec for each video clip to play back and output
  • Variable Speed Playback: For slow-motion and double-speed playback
  • PB Position Selection: This lets you select the playback position when playing from a thumbnail image. You can select from three different options: Previous playback position, thumbnail time code position, or the beginning of the clip
  • Repeat Playback: This plays the selected clip (single or multiple) repeatedly
  • HDMI Digital HD Output (3D Compatible): The AG-HPD24 features an HDMI output terminal, the next-generation interface for HD images and sound. This provides digital output for a wide variety of both professional and consumer devices. It is also compatible with 3D images
  • RS-422A Remote: The AG-HPD24 also features the same RS-422A remote terminal (9-pin) that is found on many broadcast VTRs, allowing it to be controlled as a player by an external editing controller
  • Analog Input/Output Terminals: The AG-HPD24 has Ref input, analog video (composite) output, XLR analog audio inputs (Ch 1/Ch 2), audio monitor outputs (L/R), time code input/output and a headphone jack
