Panasonic announces firmware update for AJ-PX270

GTC sponsor Panasonic has announced a free firmware upgrade for its AJ-PX270 P2HD handheld that incorporates a new codec (AVC-Intra Class200), full HD streaming and automatic content transfer, and new recording formats, to enhance production and remote newsgathering. 

The addition of the high-quality AVC-Intra Class200 codec (10-bit, 4:2:2, bitrate approx 200Mbps) enables visually lossless recording at twice the bitrate of AVC-Intra Class100, delivering studio master quality for recording network-level programming and archiving.

Rob Tarrant, European Product Manager at Panasonic said: “AVC-Intra Class200 is ideal for field capture of content for film-outs; the higher recording quality greatly enhances colour correction processes, as well as green screen and compositing applications. With the additional AVC-Intra Class200 recording, the PX270 delivers the highest quality recording available in a handheld professional camcorder.”

Network functionality is also bolstered with newly added streaming, facilitating full HD output (wired, wireless, 4G/LTE network) during recording. The implication for news gathering is that a breaking news event can be streamed to a broadcast station while acquisition is in progress in the field.

In addition, Panasonic has added the “Rec during Uploading” function to the AJ-PX270 to allow automatic transfer of recorded contents to an FTP server, which means that recording is possible even while video content is being uploaded.  

The firmware also supports a new iPad based P2 remote operation panel (ROP) application, which enables wireless control of the PX270 camera settings (such as picture quality, zoom, focus and rec/stop operation) using an iPad. The P2 ROP app will be available free of charge at the Apple App Store.

The firmware upgrade supplements the AJ-PX270’s recording formats with the addition of 1080/30p, 25p, 24p and native 1080 24PsF HD-SDI output, expanding production uses such as external recording and monitoring, as well as 720/30p, 25p, 24p, improving web production efficiencies. The upgrade also activates proxy editing on a web browser.

These upgrades are available for downloading at the Panasonic service support website: http://eww.pass.panasonic.co.jp/pro-av/support/content/download/EN/ep2main/soft/upgpx270_e.htm
