Key Features

  • Trickle-Down High Technology

    With the advancement of CCD technology the AJ-SDC615 offers performance that used to cost as much as a down payment on a house. Even the fact that this camera uses 2/3-inch chips is a huge leap forward. A 12-bit processing circuit in the DSP offers great custom picture possibilities.

  • 12-Bit Digital Processing Circuit

    The DSP circuit features 12-bit A/D conversion and 12-axis matrix color correction. This achieves better overall picture quality with finer gradation and improved color expression. It also allows correction in specific color regions without changing the overall color tone.

  • User Scene Files

    The camera has internal memory specifically for special picture and menu settings that can be recalled at any time. It could be used when a camera is used by multiple operators. It also comes in handy when production takes the shoot back and forth among several lighting situations or with scenes and talent with specific video-look requirements.

  • Digital Recording Quality

    The AJ-SDC615 records a full 66 minutes of pictures and sound on a single medium-size tape (AJ-P66MP). Quality is superb thanks to the 5.75-MHz video bandwidth (Y) and 2-channel PCM sound. The AJ-SDC615 also adds advanced error correction features to assure excellent reliability.

  • Digital Zoom

    This support function lets you digitally zoom the image to two times its normal size. News shooters can use this feature to more easily interpret the scene and capture the important details.

  • Interval Recording Time Lapse Creativity

    The interval recording function (minimum interval 2 seconds) is ideal for time lapse recording, such as in environmental, scientific or industrial applications calling for observation or surveillance. You can also watch a an entire lifespan of a flower in minutes or seconds.

    What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
    An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

    How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
    A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

    How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
    Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

    Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
    Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

    What should I do if I need extended service?
    Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

    Who will perform the service on my product?
    Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

    May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
    Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

    Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
    Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
