Panasonic Introduces AJ-SDC615 IEEE1394-Equipped DVCPRO Camcorder (20/9/2004)

Outstanding Features Address Needs of Production and News Acquisition

The new DVCPRO camcorder AJ-SDC615 offers high-sensitivity 600,000 pixel 2/3" 3-CCDs and an IEEE1394 interface for in-field direct transfer of digital component video to a laptop nonlinear editing system.

Switchable between 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios, the AJ-SDC615's three 2/3" IT CCDs provide a high sensitivity of F13 at 2000 lux, and low-light shooting down to 0.1 lux (at +48dB). Its newly developed 12-bit A/D DSP circuits provide improved picture quality, colour reproduction and luminance gradation, and a 12-axis matrix colour correction system allows very specific colours to be adjusted without affecting overall colour tone.

The high-performance camera is equipped with a Super Gain function with a maximum gain of 48db for low-light level shooting. The AJ-SDC615 delivers a maximum record time of 66 minutes, and incorporates two channels of 48kHz/16-bit digital audio. At just under 7kgs fully equipped, the AJ-SDC615 is lightweight and well balanced. It also provides an electronic shutter (speeds from 1/100 to 1/2000 sec), and synchro-scan capability (1/60.3 to 1/250 sec.).

Other versatile shooting-assist functions include: a four-position optical filter wheel; four built-in user scene files and three user-customizable function buttons; a marker selector function (for displaying a 4:3 marker); Super-Iris for one-button backlighting; multi-functional zebra pattern/display adjustment; SD memory card for storage of operational settings; quick response standby mode; built-in time code generator/reader with genlock; and 48V phantom power for microphone inputs.

Other optional accessories include: Unislot(TM) wireless receiver; low-cost remote control system; and a hand-held, easy-to-operate camera remote.

The AJ-SDC615 will be available from October 2004.
