Panasonic AG-HPG20 P2 Memory Card Portable Recorder

Featuring AVC-Intra recording, the powerful, 2.5-pound AG-HPG20 P2 Portable brings easy playback, recording and file copying of 10-bit, 4:2:2 content to field and studio work. Equipped with two P2 card slots and a 3.5-inch LCD monitor, the P2 Portable lets you view content immediately in a variety formats -- whether it's 10-bit, 4:2:2 AVC-Intra or DVCPRO HD or in standard definition in DVCPRO50, DVCPRO and DV.

With professional inputs/outputs (IEEE 1394, USB 2.0 and HD-SDI) and AVC-Intra support, the P2 Portable serves as a low-cost, master-quality deck for fast, file-based recording in high quality production workflows. The unit's HD/SD-SDI input terminal gives the flexibility of HD or SD line recording from a wide range of video sources, bridging content to and from older tape-based systems and new HD-SDI infrastructures. The shock-resistant, solid-state recorder features a wide range of clip playback and management functions (including metadata editing), speakers and easy-to-use controls.

The versatile P2 Portable is an essential workflow tool for these uses:

* P2 card playback/transfer (alone or connected to computer/NLE system)
* HD or SD playback to large screen and production displays
* Solid-state backup recording with tape-based camcorders (via IEEE1394)
* Lower Resolution recording for proxy work
* Signal recording (with metadata) for broadcast field operations such as news crew pool feeds
* Master-quality recording using AVC-Intra workflow (transfer via uncompressed HD-SDI for post production systems and storage networks)

The battery-powered HPG20 is compatible with Panasonic's range of camcorders and camera systems and can work with a broad range of non-Panasonic camera systems. Windows PC and Mac compatible.
