AJ-PX800 - P2 cam

The world's lightest*1 2/3 type shoulder-type HD camera-recorder with three image sensors revolutionises news gathering with high mobility, superb picture quality and network functions.

The AJ-PX800G is a new-generation camera-recorder for news gathering. It is network connectable and provides superb picture quality, high mobility and excellent costperformance. Weighing only about 2,8kg (main unit), the AJ-PX800G is the world's lightest*1 shoulder-type camera-recorder equipped with three MOS image sensors for broadcasting applications. It also supports AVC-ULTRA multi-codec recording.*2 The picture quality and recorded data rate can be selected from one of the AVC-ULTRA family of codec’s (AVC-Intra/AVC-LongG) according to the application. Along with a Low-rate AVC-Proxy dual-codec recording ideal for network-based operation and off-line editing. Built-in network functions support wired LAN, wireless LAN*3 and 4G/LTE network connections,*4 enabling on-site preview, uploading data to a server and streaming. The AJ-PX800G is a single-package solution for virtually all broadcasting needs.

*1: For a 2/3-type shoulder-type HD camera-recorder with three sensors (as of August 2014).
*2: Not all AVC-ULTRA formats will be supported.
*3: For a wireless LAN connection, the AJ-WM30 Wireless Module is required.
*4: 4G/LTE module is required from a third party. Availability of this function may vary depends on areas.

Key Features

1. The AJ-PX800 offers high mobility thanks to the world's lightest*1 weight. Its camera section features three MOS sensors and provides high picture quality and advanced functions to respond to broadcasting needs.

The AJ-PX800 is the world's lightest in its class at approximately 2,8kg (6,2 lb) for the main unit. The 2,2 megapixel 2/3type MOS (RGB 3) image sensors adopted offer full-pixel HD (1920 × 1080) resolution, F12 (59.94 Hz) or F13 (50 Hz) sensitivity and low noise with an S/N of 62 dB. It also achieves rich gradation and vibrant colour reproduction. Moreover, a variety of functions are packed into this one camera, including CAC (Chromatic Aberration Compensation) where a small amount of circumjacent chromatic aberration (circumjacent blur) that is not corrected by the lens is compensated, DRS (Dynamic Range Stretcher) where blocked shadows and blown highlights are suppressed to achieve a visually wide dynamic range and Advanced Flash Band Compensation (FBC) for high-precision flash band detection and compensation.

2. The recorder section offers AVC-ULTRA codec recording capability, two slots and a variety of recording modes.

The image quality and bit rate can be selected to match the application. This is made possible by Panasonic's professional A/V codec family, AVC-ULTRA, provided as standard to meet the particular needs of broadcasting and video production*2 to streaming. HD/SD Multi Format/Multi Codec is also supported. The AJ-PX800 records 1080/50i as well as 24p*5, 25p and 720p HD/SD multiple format. It also supports 60i*5, 24p and 30p by 59.94 Hz/50 Hz switching for convenient use in productions headed for global use. Conventional DVCPRO HD/DVCPRO50/DVCPRO/DV codec recording is also supported as well as SD (480/576) recording. Two P2 cards can also be accepted. Using memory card adapter AJ-P2AD1G (sold separately), microP2 cards can be used.

3.Network connectivity achieves a faster news workflow. Wired LAN, wireless LAN*3 and 4G/LTE*4 networks are supported.

The standard LAN (Ethernet) port allows network connection via a wired LAN. When the optional AJ-WM30 Wireless Module (sold separately) is installed, the AJ-PX800 gains wireless LAN (IEEE 802.11g/n) connectivity. This enables use of functions such as Proxy Preview and Camera Remote from a network-connected PC/Mac, tablet device or smartphone*6. 4G/LTE network connectivity is also supported. The AJ-PX800 can send data directly to a network server via FTP, allowing broadcast stations to edit recorded data immediately at the editing desk. Moreover, it is capable of proxy image streaming. This enables live streaming while recording images onto a memory card.*7
