2/3-type Interchangeable Lenses
The 2/3-type bayonet mount interchangeable lens system lets you choose from a variety of 2/3-type zoom lenses for broadcasting and other professional uses from third-party manufacturers. Select the lens type and performance level that meet your needs.
New, High-Sensitivity F12 MOS Sensor
A newly developed 2/3-type MOS sensor offers levels of F12 sensitivity (at 59.94 Hz) and low noise with an S/N of 59 dB (standard) that surpass many 2/3-type 3CCD cameras. High-speed scanning minimizes skewing distortion.
Standard-Equipped, High-Quality AVC-Intra Codecs
This advanced system maintains intra-frame compression based on the new MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 moving picture compression technology. It records in AVC-Intra100 mode (1920 x 1080, 10 bit, 4:2:2) for images with full-pixel HD and full sampling, and AVC-Intra50 mode (1440 x 1080, 10 bit, 4:2:0) for high-quality images at a low bit rate and for low-cost operation. The AG-HPX600 will also support the new codec, AVC-ULTRA in the future as a paid upgrade.
The Lightest 2/3-type Shoulder-type Model
The AG-HPX600 is the lightest in its class at approximately 2.8 kg (6.2 lb) for the main unit. This compact body provides superb mobility. It is also designed with excellent forward visibility.
Low Power Consumption
Power consumption for the main unit is only 18 W. This is a reduction of about 50% from our previous model, the AJ-HPX2100 (36 W for the main unit only, with LCD off), which was released in 2007. The AG-HPX600 consumes only 22 W even with the optional AG-YDX600G Video Encoder Board and optional AG-YA600G HD/SD SDI Input Board mounted.
SmartUI — A New User Interface
This newly designed user interface consists of an LCD and a variety of switches. A large number of functions, including Scene File settings, Audio Level settings, Audio IN/OUT selection, Time Code settings, and MON/HDMI Output Video settings, are easy to recognize and can be set with only a few steps each.

THE ADVANTAGES OF LEASING
- Banking facilities left available for special projects and unforeseen expenses.
- Small initial outlay usually amounting to just one months rental.
- Payment can be spread over a period of one to four years dependent upon value and type of equipment.
- A single payment at the end of the lease guarantees retention of the asset for the remainder of its working life.
- If you want to sell the equipment after the lease has ended you will receive the sale proceeds.
- Rentals are fully tax deductible.
- Cash flow is protected and the asset earns revenue in payment of the lease.
- No need to be VAT registered.
What happens at the end of the lease?
We will extend the agreement indefinitely on payment of a single further monthly rental. After that you can keep the equipment and will never have to pay any more.
Isn't leasing just for companies who can't afford the cash?
No. Companies who lease do so because they know that there are better uses for their spare funds.
Is leasing only relevant for large acquisitions?
No. Transactions of all sizes are completed using lease agreements. You can lease equipment worth as little as £1000.
Do I have to insure the equipment?
Yes. It is your responsibility to keep the equipment insured for all risks for the term of the agreement.
What happens if the equipment becomes faulty?
You have the protection of the manufacturers and/or suppliers warranty. Responsibility for repairs out of warranty are yours.

What can be included in the agreement?
Leasing enables the whole solution to be financed. This can include hardware, software, installation, training and warranties
Can the equipment be upgraded?
Yes. The equipment can be upgraded during the course of the agreement. Speak to us for further details.
Is it possible to settle the agreement early?
Yes. However we always recommend you speak to your accountant to make sure it does not create an adverse tax position.
Is there a penalty for settling early?
No. If you clear the account before it has run it’s full term then there is a reduction in the full amount payable.
Can I pay a deposit to lower my monthly outlay?
Yes. However you would need to contact us to find the correct figures based on your deposit amount.
