Model Description:
2/3” P2 HD, 1080p, 10-bit 4:2:2 AVC-Intra recording DVCPRO P2 HD Camcorders

Model Details

The AG-HPX600PJ P2 HD shoulder mount camcorder offers 10-bit, 4:2:2 AVC-Intra recording, low power consumption of only 18 watts and future-proof options, including AVC-ULTRA recording 1. The world’s first 2/3” shoulder camcorder under 7 lbs (approximately 6.2 lb2), the HPX600PJ is equipped with a newly-developed 2/3 type MOS sensor and records in AVC-Intra100/50, DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO, and DV.

The HPX600PJ provides innovative features and efficient workflows, with options such as wireless metadata input, proxy recording, variable frame rates; and future options including AVC-ULTRA and microP2 card upgradability in 20133. AVC-ULTRA will offer master-quality and/or low-bit-rate 10-bit, 4:2:2 recording in Full HD to meet variety of user needs from mastering to transmission.

The HPX600PJ also features wireless and wired connection ability with Wi-Fi, USB and Gigabit Ethernet. In addition, an option will support LiveU for video uplink with real time indication of LiveU’s transmission status and video transmission quality to the camera operator. The HPX600PJ will allow the user to upgrade his camera as new functionality becomes available 2.

The interchangeable lens camcorder is equipped with Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC) to maximize lens performance, Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) function to help compensate for wide variations in lighting, and a highly accurate Flash Band detection and compensation algorithm that minimizes this effect. A smart user interface permits accessibility to the camera’s extensive functions from an LCD display on the camera’s side. The HPX600PJ will offer two P2 Card Slots and an SD Card Slot.
