2/3 type interchangeable lens systems
2/3 type bayonet mount interchangeable lens systems. The variation and efficiency from each company abundant line-up release is done the for broadcast 2/3 type zoom lenses for which business enabled * 1. In addition, the merit which is easy to take the image where the depth of field which answers professional image production is shallow is had.

Chromatic aberration revision function (CAC * 1)
It could revise with the lens, itself the registration error where not saying kana chromatic aberration and the like happens with main cause the camera recorder itself being similar, automatically it revised, the function which holds down the color spread of the peripheral picture to minimum it loaded * 2.
* 1: Chromatic Aberration Compensation * 2: Functioning does in only the corresponding lens.

* This picture (image) it is something which was drawn up in order to explain function. It is not something which captures actually image. In addition the effect is emphasized and differs from actual image.

Progressive 3CCD
2/3 type progressives 3CCD where high sensitivity you can obtain the light absorbent area widely * loading 3. Picture quality sensitivity cost balance is achieved well.
As for camera section usual 60p (or 50p) at high resolution & high-speed rate scanning. Now you can obtain the HD/SD image of high picture quality by designating the native progressive image where the vertical resolution which is obtained is high as the source.
* 3: Effective [ime] of this CCD - [jisaizu] is 2/3.2 types suitable.

A.P.T which bears high picture quality (Advanced Progressive Technology)
Total high picture quality is obtained with the cooperation of progressive 3CCD and high performance DSP, advanced progressive technology. First being the horizontal vertical both directions with the high accuracy sticking of CCD, pixel shift actualizes. Passing 14-bit A/D conversion from that RGB each carrier chrominance signal, 1080/60P (50P) the image signal is formed DSP of 19-bit processing (the digital signal processor) with by calculating high accuracy. After that converting to each HD/SD format, it records. With interpolation from interlace scan difficult high picture quality is actualized by designating the progressive image whose vertical resolution is high as the source.

DVCPRO HD codec of broadcast quality
P2HD has adopted the DVCPRO HD codec which is the result for broadcast as one for the movie production. Image bit rate 100Mbps (at the time of 1080/59.94i and 720/59.94p) low pressure reduction ratio, the frame inside compressed system which is suited for compilation subject and the dropout where the movement is extreme is strong, maintains high picture quality. In addition 4: 2: Because the jaggy is difficult to appear in the edge of chroma due to 2 samplings, it is suitable for also synthesis processing.

HD/SD multiple format
Supporting HD/SD image format recording of 20 types. In news collection of data program production movie production other all use, and you answer the contents production which is directed to the entire world. As for HD recording the DVCPRO HD codec, the multiple codec of DVCPRO50/DVCPRO/DV can select with SD recording.

The image format and the codec which AG-HPX555 supports
* 1: As for 24p as for 23.98p and 30p as for 29.97p, 60p and 60i it is recorded with each one 59.94p and 59.94i.
* 2: As for native mode only the effective frame it is the mode which is recorded.
* 3: Record time at the time of the respective P 216 GB card 4 use. 1 with P2 cards it becomes 1/4. In addition record time differs the image format, other than the codec with functional setting and cutting the frequency.

Loading the variable [huremureto] function which makes speed effect possible
It was developed because of HD camera VARICAM for the cinema, loaded popular variable function even with hand-held camera recorder AG-HVX200. At the time of 720p mode *, 12P~60p (50p) it can select optional frame rate from 11 steps between, (the right description reference). The under crank which is photographing technique of the film (time-lapse photography)/the over crank (high-speed photographing) freely using, production of quick motion/slow motion is possible.
* Because 1080 and 480 24p/30p (with 50Hz mode 25p) it reaches fixed frame rate.

 - Over crank photographing (setting to the frame rate which is higher than standard speed)
The slow motion which is used for action and dramatic production. For example photographing with 48fps, when it screens with the standard speed of 24fps, you can obtain the slow motion of 1/2 time speed, *. It is different from the slow playback of the VTR, being smooth, it is slow motion of high picture quality.

- Under crank photographing (setting to the frame rate which is lower than standard speed)
In production of the person and the kung fu etc which stand in emphasis and bustle of the flow of the water and the cloud. For example photographing with 12fps, when it screens with the standard speed of 24fps, you can obtain the quick motion of 2 time speed, *.
* This is when standard speed is designated as 24fps with 60Hz mode. When 30fps or 25fps of 50Hz mode is designated as standard speed, the effect result which is obtained differs respectively.

* Summary of frame rate and speed effect effect

Native mode /over 60p (50p) mode change
720p (native) mode: The mode only of P2 which is recorded with while it is frame rate of the camera. By playing back the material which was recorded at optional frame rate at normal rate without the frame rate converter the effect of speed effect can be actualized.
