Panasonic Introduces Camera Recorder For Professional AVCCAM LINE-UP

Panasonic Professional Camera Solutions is set to launch the new AG-AF101A Series Memory Card Camera Recorder in November 2012.
The AG-AF101A Series is a professional HD AVCCAM camera recorder with a Micro Four Thirds mount.
As with the conventional AG-AF101 Series, the AG-AF101A Series can use a wide range of lenses including Micro Four Thirds compatible DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) lenses and Cinema lenses with a mount adapter. The AG-AF101A Series also features two-channel XLR audio input terminals and more functions to meet the professional needs.
In addition to the professional high quality PH mode (average approx. 21Mbps, maximum 24Mbps), the AG-AF101A Series complies with the AVCHD ver. 2.0 (AVCHD Progressive) standard in its new PS mode (average approx. 25Mbps, maximum 28Mbps) for recording, playing and outputting (via HDMI only) Full-HD progressive (1080/59.94p, 1080/50p) images. The PS/PH modes support uncompressed 16 bit LPCM 2-channel audio recording.
The AG-AF101A Series has the ability to output HD signals with 10 bit 4:2:2 quality via the camera’s live output function and record onto the external devices, such as P2 Recorder, compatible with 10 bit high quality recording through SDI. The P2 Recorder also syncs Rec Start/Stop with the AG-AF101A series trigger.
The AG-AF101A Series is equipped with the expand focus assist function, which enlarges the centre of the displayed image, and 2.39:1 (cinema scope size) safety zone marker.
The AG-AF101A Series will be available in November 2012 at an RRP of € 4.150,00 excluding VAT.
The AG-AF101A Series will be placed on display at the International Broadcast Equipment Exhibition 2012 "Inter BEE 2012" to be held at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan from Wednesday, November 14th to Friday, November 16th.
*Panasonic doesn’t guarantee the compatibility or performance of all lenses that are mountable on the AG-AF101A Series. Use a support system when mounting a lens weighting more than 1 Kg (2.2 lb).
