The Panasonic AJ-HPX3100 may just change the way you view high-end broadcast camera recorders. Its new body design has a low center of gravity for added stability and gives you an unobstructed view to both sides. It weighs only about 3.9 kg (8.6 lb). Two P2 card slots reside on the side where the main controls are arranged. Boasting excellent mobility and easy operation, the camera section incorporates a 2.2 megapixel 2/3-type 3CCD, a high-performance DSP, and an AVC-Intra Codec LSI.

The AJ-HPX3100 records broadcast-quality HD video with full-pixel (1920 x 1080) resolution using 10 bit/4:2:2 sampling. It has a high sensitivity of F11 (60i)*1 or F12 (50i)*1 at 2,000 lx and low noise with a 59 dB*2 S/N ratio to assure the level of recording quality that is demanded for broadcasting and video production. P2 HD functions newly offered by the AJ-HPX3100 include 24 bit audio,*3 high-quality proxy recording*4, and wireless metadata input capability via wireless LAN*5.

Armed with the reliability and quick recording starts of solid-state memory cards, the AJ-HPX3100 could revolutionize your news gathering and program production workflow. The AJ-HPX3100 has also dramatically reduced power consumption as compared with the conventional model*6, thus improving mobility and helping to protect the global environment.

Canon KJ17ex7.7B-IRSE ENG Lens Overview

The Canon KJ17ex7.7B ENG Lens is the first of a new family of second generation 2/3-inch HDgc portable HD lenses. The new design reflects design refinements to the first generation line of HDgc lenses originally introduced in 2006.
The HDgc line of lenses had been specifically developed to achieve a price performance ratio that was commensurate with the new line of cost-effective HD camcorders being introduced by all major camera manufacturers in response to the broadcast industry’s rapidly growing interest in transitioning to HDTV newsgathering, HD reality shows, and other lower-budget HD productions. They also directly address the increasing adoption of HD digital origination by the growing independent filmmaking market sector. In addition, they are anticipated to foster growing interest in HD within the broad B2B market sectors. To support this extensive flexibility in HD acquisition systems, the HDgc family includes 2/3-inch, 1/2-inch, and 1/3-inch lenses.
The KJ17ex7.7B is a portable HDTV production lens within the 2/3-inch image format sector of the new HDgc family. This particular lens is intended for users whose foremost priority is an affordable HD lens that delivers a generous range of focal lengths combined with a wide field of view in a lightweight mobile package. It was specifically designed for the many new cost-effective but remarkably high-performance 2/3-inch acquisition systems that appeared in 2008-2009.
In the KJ17ex7.7B lens imaging performance has been significantly advanced by mobilizing the most contemporary of optical glasses, optical coating materials and processes, and powerful new optical design tools. Customer feedback also spurred a total redesign of the digital drive unit that further optimized both the ergonomic aspects and the performance of the digital electronic control of zoom, iris, and focus.
The short 7.7 mm focal length translates to a 63.9 degree horizontal angle of view for the 16:9 HD image format. Combined with a focal range that has been extended to now cover a range from 7.7mm to 131mm (and 262mm with extender) this lens offers unsurpassed operational capabilities in a compact package weighing less than 3.5lbs. Focus breathing has also been significantly reduced over the predecessor lens.

Panasonic AJ-MC900G Stereo Microphone Overview

The Panasonic AJ-MC900G is a stereo microphone designed specifically for Panasonic’s line of DVCPRO HD camcorders. Using a 5-pin connection, it mounts directly onto cameras such as the AJ-HDX900, AJ-HPX2700 and AJ-HPX3000.

IDX IA-60 60W Camera Power Supply Overview

The IA-60 is a single output 60W power supply with a universal AC100~240V input for worldwide operation. The IA-60 features a lightweight, rugged metal enclosure, built-in carrying handle, adjustable output voltage and automatic overload protection.

  • 60W 13.8V DC output via a 4-pin XLR connector.
  • The IA-60a weighs just 1.98 lbs., despite an all-purpose rugged metal enclosure. An integrated carry handle is provided for easy handling.
  • Internal safety features protect the IA-60a from overload damage should an excessive load be drawn. It does this by automatically shutting down to recover. The IA-60a also produces ‘low ripple noise’ to reduce the chances of signal interference with nearby devices.
  • Adjustable output voltage from 12.5V to 15V.
  • Universal AC input voltage for worldwide operation.
