About Panasonic AJ-PX5000G

Combining high-end image quality with cost-efficient operation, the AJ-PX5000G meets the new needs of broadcast workflows for the networking age, and sets a new standard for ENG. In addition to conventional P2 card slots, the AJ-PX5000G is the first camera recorder to offer microP2 card slots which dramatically reduce media costs. Recording codecs start with AVC-Intra and include, again for the first time in a camera recorder, the AVC-LongG50/25 codecs with low-bit-rate operation and Full-HD 1920 x 1080, 4:2: 2, 10 bit image quality. Even longer record time is possible by using AVC-LongG12 (8 bit 4:2: 0). Dual codec recording is also possible with low-bit-rate and high-quality AVC-LongG6 codec (Full-HD 1920 x 1080), for breaking news.

The AJ-PX5000G also supports the AVC-Intra200 codec for visually lossless images that approach the level of uncompressed master quality. Featuring the newly developed 2.2-megapixel 2/3-type MOS image sensor, this advanced camera recorder achieves high F12 (59.94 Hz)/F13 (50 Hz) sensitivity and excellent images with an S/N ratio of 62 dB. Also enabling progressive full frame 1080/60p and 1080/50p shooting, the AJ-PX5000G comes with 3G SDI/HDMI terminals as a standard feature. Operation is also possible using AVC-Proxy images. A wired/wireless LAN connection enables metadata input and playlist editing, while 4G connection allows proxy files to be transferred to a network server, contributing to a smoother ENG workflow based on networking and IT operation.

First Standard-Equipped AVC-ULTRA Codec
From mastering to streaming, the image quality and bit rate can be selected to match the application. Panasonic's professional A/V codec family, AVC-ULTRA, is provided as standard equipment for the first time ever, to meet the particular needs of broadcasting and image production.

AVC Intra
An intra-frame compression method that is highly suited to image production. In addition to the conventional AVC-Intra100/50, an optional AVC-Intra200 codec will be available. With superb images that approach uncompressed quality and 24 bit audio, it offers a level of quality that meets the needs of mastering and archiving.

An inter-frame compression method that achieves high-quality HD recording at a low bit rate. Ideal for providing on-air content direct from the shooting location and for workflows using content transferred over the internet. Four bit rates are available: AVC-LongG50/25/12/6 Mbps. AVC-LongG50/25 provide 10 bit/4:2:2 quality at a bit rate of approximately 25 Mbps.

AVC Proxy
Low-bit-rate, high-resolution, high-soundquality proxy video (Quick Time/H.264) is also recorded with the actual data. Also includes metadata for efficient offline editing.

Standard-Equipped microP2 Card Slots
The AJ-PX5000G is the first camera recorder to come with two slots for the microP2 card, the new broadcast-use memory card downsized to match the size of a conventional SD memory card.

microP2 card
While inheriting the high reliability of the P2 card and maintaining the large capacity of 64 GB, the microP2 card was greatly downsized to match the size of an SD memory card, thus resulting in a considerable reduction in cost.

Content Protection System (CPS)
A new security function featured on the microP2 card. The content recorded on the card is locked with a password to protect against unauthorized access.

P2 Card Slots
Two conventional P2 card slots can be used.

Highly Mobile and Reliable
The microP2 and P2 cards are highly resistant to temperature changes, dust, impacts, and vibration, and there are no worries about condensation, head clogging, or dropout as there are with VTR systems. Data is recorded onto empty card spaces, so there is no need to search for the beginning and ending of recorded portions. There is also no danger of mistakenly recording over existing data.

Network Solutions
The AVC-Proxy files and Network function (wired/wireless LAN) make it possible to configure a workflow for previewing images, editing metadata, editing playlists, sharing networks, and uploading motion images quickly and at low cost with a PC/Mac, tablet, or smartphone.

New Dual Codec Recording
While recording actual data with an AVC-Intra100 or LongG50/25 codec, you can simultaneously record with the low-bit-rate HD AVC-LongG6 codec. This lets you, for example, distribute news flashes in Full-HD.

Wired LAN Connection
Proxy image previewing, metadata editing, and streaming are possible from a PC or Mac via the LAN (Ethernet) terminal.

Wireless LAN Connection
The optional AJ-WM30 Wireless Module allows wireless LAN (IEEE 802.11) connection. This enables previewing and metadata editing with a tablet or smartphone.

4G Connection (available in the future)
Functions equivalent to those with a wired LAN connection are possible over a 4G connection.

Playlist Editing
Playlists can be edited using proxy images with a PC/ Mac or tablet. The workflow can be streamlined and speeded up by rough editing on-location, and then sending data or transferring files. The results can be saved together with the edited playlist, then played, SDI output, and copied using a web application.

Panasonic AJ-PX5000G Features

  • HD/SD Multi Format/Multi Codec -- In addition to 1080/60i, the AJ-PX5000G supports 24p, 30p,60p, and 720p multi HD format and SD recording. Also, 50i, 50p, and 25p are supported by 59.94 Hz/50 Hz switching.
