Overview

Featuring AVC-Intra recording, the powerful, 2.5-pound AG-HPG20 P2 Portable brings easy playback, recording and file copying of 10-bit, 4:2:2 content to field and studio work. Equipped with two P2 card slots and a 3.5-inch LCD monitor, the P2 Portable lets you view content immediately in a variety formats -- whether it's 10-bit, 4:2:2 AVC-Intra or DVCPRO HD or in standard definition in DVCPRO50, DVCPRO and DV.

With professional inputs/outputs (IEEE 1394, USB 2.0 and HD-SDI) and AVC-Intra support, the P2 Portable serves as a low-cost, master-quality deck for fast, file-based recording in high quality production workflows. The unit's HD/SD-SDI input terminal gives the flexibility of HD or SD line recording from a wide range of video sources, bridging content to and from older tape-based systems and new HD-SDI infrastructures. The shock-resistant, solid-state recorder features a wide range of clip playback and management functions (including metadata editing), speakers and easy-to-use controls.

The battery-powered HPG20 is compatible with Panasonic's range of camcorders and camera systems and can work with a broad range of non-Panasonic camera systems. Windows PC and Mac compatible.

The versatile P2 Portable is an essential workflow tool for these uses:

• P2 card playback/transfer (alone or connected to computer/NLE system)
• HD or SD playback to large screen and production displays
• Solid-state backup recording with tape-based camcorders (via IEEE1394)
• Lower Resolution recording for proxy work
• Signal recording (with metadata) for broadcast field operations such as news crew pool feeds
• Master-quality recording using AVC-Intra workflow (transfer via uncompressed HD-SDI for post production systems and storage networks)
• AVC-Intra (100/50) recording and play back using the most advanced video compression codec for high-quality production workflow
• Recording and playback formats include 1080/60i, 1080/50i, 720/60p, 720/50p in AVC-Intra and DVCPRO HD; and 480/60i, 576/50i in DVCPRO50, DVCPRO and DV
• Supports up-, down- and cross-conversion for HD (1080, 720) or SD (480) transmission. Operates in 50Hz or 60Hz
• Time-saving file management functions including: Clip copy (copy select clips from one P2 card to another in the P2 Portable), Thumbnail image change (By default, the first image in a clip is used as the thumbnail), Clip Metadata Edit (update a clip's metadata with specific information such as names and location), Text Memo (save a text memo to individual clips when recording or previewing) and Shot Marker (shot mark specific clips)
• More convenient playback functions including: format auto playback (plays format automatically without the need for pre-selection), slow/fast playback, single-clip playback, repeat playback
• Metadata editing function allows users to edit a clip's metadata (European languages supported)
• 4:3 Marker that can be displayed over incoming video for safe-shooting requirements.
• Plays back variable frame-rate sources
• Supports waveform and vectorscope display for either incoming signals or recorded signals
• Continuous loop playback function
• 8-channel audio input/output (HD SDI); headphone (M3 mini) jacks
• IEEE 1394 and USB 2.0 with host function for PC and Mac connection; IEEE 1394 input/ouput (stream only) recording/playback
• Supports SD VITC/CC signals, OSD output to SDI and UMID recording/playback
• Component and Composite video output
• Comes standard with AC Adapter AG-B25 and Battery CGAD54SE/1B
• 5-year limited warranty (1-year standard, plus 4 years extended warranty upon product registration)
