Panasonic Sets Shipping Date For AG-HVX200, A Handheld Solid-State Hi-Def Camcorder

Panasonic announced that its AG-HVX200, the world’s first hand-held high definition solid-state memory camcorder, will begin delivering to resellers on December 29th.

At a press briefing Panasonic announced introductory pricing for the HVX200 including $5,995 suggested list price of the camcorder only, a $6,995 list price for the camcorder and two 4GB P2 cards, and a $9,995 list price for the camcorder and two 8GB P2 cards.

The HVX200 records in high definition in 1080i and 720p in 100Mbps DVCPRO HD quality. The camera records video on a P2 card as IT-friendly MXF files in 1080/60i, 30p and 24p; in 720/60p, 30p and 24p; in 50Mbps DVCPRO50 and in 25Mbps DVCPRO or DV. The HD and SD video recorded on the P2 card can be rapidly downloaded to a nonlinear editing system or server, or edited virtually instantly from the P2 card by connecting to an IEEE1394 or USB2.0 interface. P2 cards mount like a regular hard drive from a NLE system’s point of view.

The multi-format camera has two P2 card slots, and offers a variety of record modes including hot-swap recording to ensure continuous recording; loop recording; pre-record (up to 7 seconds in DVCPRO and 3 seconds in DVCPRO HD); one-shot record (from 1 frame to 1 second) and interval record (from 2 frames to 10 minutes). For added flexibility, the HVX200 is also equipped with a Mini-DV tape drive for shooting 4:3 and 16:9 images on DV tape in 60i, 30p and 24p.

Audio capabilities include 4-channel non-compressed 48KHz/16-bit digital audio in DVCPRO HD and DVCPRO50.

The HVX200 is loaded with system interfaces (including IEEE1394 and USB2.0), and professional interfaces including two XLR audio (with +48 volt phantom power) inputs, a component (D4) output, composite in/out, S-video in/out, audio (RCA) in/out, and headphone output.

The AG-HVX200 weighs about five pounds, and is ruggedly-built with a magnesium alloy diecast chassis for more reliability and durability.
