New products for SA


Panasonic Digital Broadcast authorised distributor Avmark Systems reports a series of successful camera sales and will introduce several new products to South Africa later this year.

Avmark’s Renato Acquisto expands: “The success of the P2 format has seen Panasonic cameras used by broadcasters and production companies worldwide and South Africa is no exception. Luckily, Panasonic manufacture has not been unduly affected by the aftermath of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.’

In the line-up is the AG-HPX250; a new P2HD camcorder which includes the AVC-Intra codec; DVCPROHD with 10-bit 4:2:2 sampling; 21 x optical zoom; and three optical control rings. Weighing in at 2.5kg, the HPX250 incorporates three 1/3 inch high sensibility MOS sensors, 2.2 mega pixels and a 20-bit digital signal processor to record images with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080.The three lens rings allow for independent control of focus, zoom and iris. The 21 x zoom lens offers a 28mm wide angle to 588mm zoom.

Says Acquisto: “This camera is targeted at the traditional production video user as well as the wildlife fraternity due to the long lens. It is also suited to budget conscious productions.

“Panasonic will also introduce a new nine-inch LCD monitor and the amazing Twin Lens 3D Camera recorder P2HD AG-3DP1, which offers full broadcast quality and recording onto P2 cards.’
