Panasonic P2 Deck - Solid-State - Portable - Panasonic AG-HPD24PJ

$ 1,389.99



The Panasonic AG-HPD24PJ Solid-State P2 Portable Deck is a lightweight (at 4.4 lb) yet extremely powerful recording device for professional HD production. With outputs for HDMI and HD-SDI as well as composite video, the 1/2 rack-wide, 2 RU-high HPD24PJ deck can serve a versatile monitoring station as well as the heart of a logging station for production in the studio or, with its included battery, in the field.

The deck has two slots for P2 cards and acts as a USB 3.0 device, so you can easily & quickly offload files to compatible hard drives. The AJ-HPD24PJ has a 3.5" LCD screen that shows not only thumbnails and live playback video, but also a waveform and vectorscope.

The AG-HPD24PJ supports AVC-Intra recording at 50 and 100 Mb/s. This intraframe codec offers extremely high-quality compression that produces high-definition files whose quality can stand firm against multiple post-production passes. The deck also supports DVCPRO HD and, for standard-definition compatibility, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO, and DV. The HD codecs support 1080p, 1080i, and 720p formats, and with the deck's HD-SDI inputs, the HPD24PJ can input 1080/24PsF (progressive segmented frame) material and output it, making the deck appropriate for digital cinema productions.

Featuring time code in and out as well as RS-422 control, the HDP24PJ thrives as an NLE deck as well as a component in a live-event environment, recording the feed of a switcher. Recording options are manifold, thanks the dual P2 slots: You can record to both cards simultaneously or in-line, and you can hot-swap the P2 cards. Auto Rec responds automatically to the presence of an HD-SDI signal, and Loop Rec keeps the recording going non-stop, recording over each card's existing contents in turn. Using the HDMI output and the HD-SDI input of two identical AG-HPD24PJ portable decks, you can set up a system that can record and play back separate left-eye/right-eye channels of 3D video.

24PsF Compatible, HD/SD Multi-Format

Handling a wide range of HD formats, such as 1080p, 1080i, and 720p, the AG-HPD24 can be switched between 59.94 Hz and 50 Hz to adapt to the world's HD broadcasting formats. The AG-HPD24 supports 1080/24p native recording and playback with the AVC-Intra codec. HD-SDI mode provides 1080/24PsF input/output for use in high-end movie production. And SD recording in both NTSC (480i) and PAL (567i) are available with multi-codec (DVCPRO 50, DVCPRO, DV)


The AG-HPD24 can convert up or down between HD and SD or cross-convert between 720p and 1080i during playback. It also features an aspect conversion function

VariCam Speed Effects

The AG-HPD24 can extract active frames from VFR (variable frame rate) signals output by a VariCam and record them in 720/24p. VariCam-like 60p pull-down output can also be provided by playing back a video clip in a P2 card recorded in native 720/24p by the AJ-HPX2700, the AG-HPX500 Series, the AG-HPX370 Series, the AG-HPX170 Series or the AG-HPX250 P2HD camcorders

Gamma Conversion for Cinema Production

This function converts images recorded by a VariCam or images recorded in the Film Rec mode of the AJ-HPX3100 to the same kind of film-like look as the Telecine 5 or Telecine 6 mode of the AJ-GBX27G HD Gamma Corrector. It can also convert to the Cineon curve for film recording

High-Quality 24-Bit Audio Recording

AVC-Intra mode features high-quality 24-bit digital audio recording. You can select either 24-bit, 4-channel or 16-bit, 8-channel recording. DVCPRO HD mode provides 16-bit, 8-channel, and DVCPRO 50/DVCPRO/DV mode includes 16-bit, 4-channel recording

Excellent Reliability and Mobility with the P2 Card

The P2 card offers a large capacity of up to 64 GB in a small, lightweight package. Its rugged design withstands even harsh professional use. It is highly resistant to temperature fluctuations, dust, impact, and vibration, and is free of the problems that are common in tapes, such as condensation, head clogging, and dropouts. The P2 card promises solid reliability and excellent mobility under the often difficult conditions of field recording. Because data is automatically recorded in blank card spaces, there is no need for cueing, and the risk of accidentally overwriting valuable data is eliminated

Advanced Recording Functions Employing Two Card Slots

In addition to continuous, double-card recording, the AG-HPD24 enables some useful recording functions that are possible only with memory cards.

Hot-Swap Rec: Thanks to the two card slots, you can hot-swap P2 cards for continuous non-stop recording. With multiple cards you can record for hours without interruption.

Auto Rec: This function automatically starts recording in response to SDI video input.

Loop Rec: This function continuously records video data onto available memory card areas. When the card becomes full, older data is deleted to free up the recording area, resulting in loss-less, endless recording. When used with cameras for time-sensitive information gathering like weather and news reporting, the Loop Rec function holds the latest video data for a predetermined time period

Text Memo, Shot Marker and Metadata

Text Memo: When recording or previewing a clip, you can attach a memo (similar to a bookmark) at a desired location (up to 100 locations on a frame basis). The simplified editing function lets you copy a segment between memos and create a new clip. Text information can be added to a memo.

Shot Marker: During or after recording, you can mark each clip with OK, NG, or another designation.

Clip Metadata: This function lets you browse and edit metadata, such as the name of the camera operator and reporter, shooting location, and text memos. Text data can also be easily inserted by connecting a USB or software keyboard, and metadata files can be uploaded from an SD/SDHC card

USB Keyboard Connection

The USB 2.0 keyboard terminal lets you connect an ordinary USB keyboard for easy metadata text input. A software keyboard is also provided
