AVCCAM In The Palm Of Your Hands

High-End AVCHD Image Quality

The AG-HMR10 Series features the image-enhancing PH mode that Panasonic developed exclusively for AVCCAM camcorders. It delivers a maximum AVCHD bit rate of 24 Mbps (average: 21 Mbps). Designed for professional image production, this mode handles full-raster HD 1920 x 1080 and 1280 x 720 HD pixels, and lets you record 1080/30p, 1080/25p, and 1080/24p progressive images in addition to 1080/60i and 1080/50i when connected to the AG-HCK10G (optional).

Ease, Efficiency, Reliability

Unlike videotape, there's no need for queuing with the SDHC Memory Card because recording automatically begins in a blank section of memory. Nor do you have to worry about accidentally recording over important footage. You can delete unwanted clips instantly right on the spot to preserve memory capacity. Editing after shooting is smooth and easy, with no need for digitizing. The tiny SDHC Memory Card is durable, too. Its operating range is from -25-85°C (-13-185°F), so you can stop worrying about harsh temperatures or condensation and just concentrate on your shooting. And of course, you never have to worry about problems with dropouts or clogged heads.

Shot Mark

To simplify shot selection, you can add a mark to the thumbnail images of each clip. You can then display and play only the clips that have shot marks.

Pre-REC

The Pre-REC function helps to ensure you always get the shot you want by letting you continuously store, and subsequently record, images and sounds for 3 seconds before the REC button is pressed. 1

REC Check

Plays back the last 2 seconds of the most recently recorded clip for quick confirmation. 2

Last Clip Delete

Only the most recently recorded clip is deleted with this one-touch function. It can be assigned as a User button function if desired.

Meta-data Recording

The date, camera operator, location, title and other information can be added to the image data.

LCD Reverse

The image displayed on the LCD monitor can be reversed vertically and horizontally to check the angle and recorded image.

Index

Index flags can be added to any desired points in a clip during recording or playback. Up to 100 index flags can be added to each clip.

Image Control

Waveform Monitor Display

A horizontal analysis of the input signal's brightness level can be displayed on the monitor. This lets you adjust the standard black and white levels while checking the Waveform Monitor (WFM), making it easy to get highly accurate adjustments.

Simplified Vector Scope

The display can be switched from waveform monitor (WFM) to vector scope (VECTOR).

Convenient Playback Functions

Resume Playback

When the Stop key is pressed during playback, the stop position is stored in memory. Simply press the Play key to start playing again from the stop position. This feature is especially appreciated when reviewing long clips.

Repeat Playback

This function provides repeat clip playback. It is convenient for use in presentations and demonstrations because playback is seamless, and there's no need for rewinding. There's also no wear or tear on the recording media or degradation in the image quality.

Clip Operation

The AG-HMR10 Series allows fast forward, fast reverse, clip forward, clip reverse, and frame by frame playback operation.

Convenient Recording Functions

Clip Operation

You can insert time and date information into the video signal. This could be convenient, for example, when observing animals over an extended period, in certain academic uses, in surveillance, court reporting, legal depositions or law enforcement applications.

TC/UB Recording

Provides a built-in SMPTE time-code generator.

Additional Features

HD-SDI Input/Output

HD-SDI input and HD/SD-SDI output (down-converting the image for SD-SDI output) are equipped. Digital AV signals can be transmitted up to 100 m (328 ft) with a BNC cable. Line recording of high-quality images from video cameras and switchers is also supported. When connected to a camera-recorder, the camera trigger can be interlocked to REC start and stop recording.

HDMI Output Terminal

The AG-HMR10 Series is equipped with an HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) output terminal for digital transferring of high-quality HD image and audio signals.

SD Down-conversion Output

Either HD-SDI or HDMI output can be used to down-convert and output HD images as SD images while they are being recorded or played. When converting, a 16:9 to 4:3 aspect ratio side crop, letterbox, or squeeze images can be selected. It enables a wide variety of applications, such as viewing on an external monitor or SD dubbing.

USB 2.0 Terminal

The standard USB terminal (Type mini B) allows the AG-HMR10 Series to connect to a computer in device mode. This lets a Windows PC/Mac installed with the provided AVCCAM Viewer software to ingest, copy, and write HD video files, as well as transfer them to AVCHD-compatible nonlinear editing software for HD image production.
