Panasonic HDX900

As HD continues to supplant standard definition in mainstream production, the choice of camera becomes more critical…and complicated. Network format compliance, desired look, deliverables and distribution all play a critical role in production’s choice of HD camera and workflow.

Now, Panasonic has just made this process a lot easier…as the world’s most versatile HD camera is about to hit the streets.

The AJ-HDX900 offers true Universal HD acquisition. That is, the ability to shoot in 1080i or 720p in DVCPRO HD format, in either NTSC or PAL – all in one 2/3” camera. The new AJ-HD1400 VTR is the perfect companion to the HDX900 supporting worldwide HD/SD formats including 1080/59.94, 1080/50i, 720/60p, 720/59.94p and 720/50p.

About the HD1400 

Only 1⁄2 rack-width wide and extremely light, the AJ-HD1400 can record up to 64 minutes of HD footage on a single, compact cassette (AJ-HP64ELG). The VTR can play the entire family of DVCPRO tapes—DVCPRO HD and HD-EX, DVCPRO50 and standard DVCPRO, as well as any DV and DVCAM tapes. Its universal design also allows playback of both NTSC (480i) and PAL (576i) tapes.

The AJ-HD1400 supports worldwide HD/SD formats including 1080/59.94, 1080/50i, 720/60p, 720/59.94p and 720/50p, and it can convert from an AJ-HDC27 VariCam 50p recording (over 60p) source to native 720p/50 or PAL output, making it an exceptionally useful tool for producing HD/SD content for worldwide distribution. The AJ-HD1400 is a perfect complement to the AJ-HDC27 VariCam and new AJ-HDX900 DVCPRO HD camcorder.
