The HPM200 offers all of the popular features found in its predecessor, the AJ-HPM110, and adds new functionality including: enhanced cuts editing with separate source and record windows, full-frame rate playback from external disk drives, AVCHD compatibility (with the AJ-YCX250G option card), up-conversion of live video inputs in real time, FTP and Giga-bit Ethernet interfaces for expanded network connectivity and 24p Time Code input for production applications, including use as a source for a traditional dailies process.
With DVCPRO HD and AVC-Intra standard as well as optional AVCHD compatibility and expanded input/output connections, the HPM200 P2 Mobile is the most comprehensive and versatile master-quality HD field recorder and can be used with virtually any camera. The field recorder offers 10-bit independent frame 4:2:2 quality recording in a variety of high definition formats and frame rates, including 1080p (native), 1080i and 720p, and also records in standard definition DVCPRO50/25 and DV.
The HPM200’s AVCHD compatibility gives users more options for content management, backup recording and distribution. Professionals can play back AVCHD content on an SD card using the unit’s SD card slot, convert P2 content to AVCHD for low bit rate distribution over the network, convert AVCHD to P2 to edit in a P2 project, or record P2 and AVCHD simultaneously for backup or distribution, especially useful for producing on-set dailies. SD cards with AVCHD content can be inserted into and played back on a growing number of consumer playback devices with SD card slots, including Blu-ray players, select plasma displays, game consoles and more.
