Panasonic is shipping its new 3D camcorder, the AG-3DP1, a 3D integrated twin-lens P2 HD shoulder-mount camcorder with 10 bit, 4:2:2 independent-frame, full 1920 x 1080 resolution AVC-Intra recording.
The camcorder features a high-powered twin-lens zoom lens system, high-sensitivity sensors and the high-quality AVC-Intra codec in the 3DP1 enable broadcast-level 3D image acquisition, as well as 3D assist functions and multi-camera synchronization for versatile broadcast use and image production.
The AG-3DP1’s newly-developed 17x twin-lens zoom lens system features an expanded range for both wide-angle and telephoto to fit diverse shooting situations including live events, sports, documentaries and independent films, Panasonic says. Supporting multi-camera set-up, a studio camera system, a file-based P2 workflow and offering variable frame rates (VFR), the camcorder meets highly sophisticated production needs, the company adds.
“The 3DP1 will make 3D production easier,” said Steve Cooperman, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America’s product manager. “With professional features such as genlock input and TC input/output and more, the 3DP1 can now be part of multi-camera 3D systems; and with full-resolution, 10-bit AVC-Intra, the quality is much higher for new programming opportunities, including 3D green screen work,” he said.
