About Panasonic AJ-HPX2000

The Panasonic AJ-HPX2000 P2 HD shoulder-mount camcorder integrates native HD progressive 2/3" 3CCD performance with the ultra-high reliability and speed of P2 solid-state recording. As one of the most flexible, full production-quality cameras available, the AJ-HPX2000 records pristine high-quality images in over 30 HD and SD formats ranging from 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i and 576i. With the new AVC-Intra codec option board (AJ-YBX200G), the AJ-HPX2000 can deliver 10-bit, 4:2:2 master-quality video for outstanding video production and news acquisition.

AVC-Intra, the industry's most advanced compression technology, is a professional intra-frame video codec with bit rates of 50 and 100 Mbps, utilizing the High-10 and High-422 profiles of H.264 respectively. AVC-Intra provides high-quality 10-bit intra-frame encoding in two modes: AVC-Intra 100 for full-raster mastering video quality and AVC-Intra 50 Mbps for DVCPRO HD quality at half the bit rate, thereby doubling the record time on a P2 card.

The Panasonic AJ-HPX2000 holds up to five P2 cards offering users extended recording time. With five 32 GB P2 cards, professionals can record over 5 hours of content with AVC-Intra 50 and over 6-1/2 hours in DVCPRO HD 720p native.
