Canopus announces support module for Panasonic’s DVCPRO P2 products

Canopus has announced native, real-time non-linear editing support for Panasonic’s DVCPRO P2 series of products, including the new AG-HVX200 DVCPRO HD P2 hand-held camcorder.
Developed in collaboration with Panasonic, the Canopus P2 Format Support Module provides support through Canopus’s line of EDIUS editing solutions, EDIUS NX, EDIUS SP, EDIUS SD and EDIUS HD. Canopus demonstrated EDIUS working with the Panasonic DVCPRO P2 camcorders in Panasonic’s booth during NAB 2005.
Using MXF (Material eXchange Format), EDIUS editing solutions support direct access of footage from the P2 card, eliminating the time-consuming task of capturing footage. This immediate access to footage speeds up workflow and lets video professionals go directly from shooting to editing. The edited content can be exported back to the P2 card, together with metadata information.
“The P2 format is making great headway in the electronic news gathering space. Combine the outstanding quality of DVCPRO HD footage and the flexibility of the handheld form factor of the AG-HVX200 and it’s even more compelling for broadcasters,” said Hiro Yamada, Founder and Chairman of the Board of Canopus. “Now add EDIUS’s realtime mixed HD/SD format editing, full frame rate resolution output, scalable design and a fast, flexible interface, and broadcast professionals have the perfect companion for Panasonic’s new camcorder.”
John Baisley, President of Panasonic Broadcast, said: “The announcement of support for Panasonic's new AG-HVX200 by Canopus is welcomed by both Broadcasters and Professionals. EDIUS’s implementation of P2 support in HD and SD, added to the current support of DVCPRO HD and DVCPRO 50 via IEEE1394, makes a great editing solution for Panasonic's family of DVCPRO products.”
The Canopus P2 Format Support Module will be available Q3 of 2005 from Canopus and its authorized dealers and system integrators.
