About the Panasonic AG-HPX600

The AG-HPX600 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*. The world’s first 2/3” shoulder camcorder under 7 lbs (approximately 6.2 lb2), the HPX600 is equipped with a newly-developed 2/3 type MOS sensor and records in AVC-Intra100/50, DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO, and DV.

The HPX600 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 2013***. 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 HPX600 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 HPX600 will allow the user to upgrade his camera as new functionality becomes available**.

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 HPX600 will offer two P2 Card Slots and an SD Card Slot.

 

* AG-HPX600 will not support all AVC-ULTRA formats.
** Excluding battery and accessories.
*** Both the AVC-Ultra and microP2 options are planned for 2013 and will be chargeable upgrades.

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.
