The AJ-HPX2100 is the shoulder-mounted memory card camera-recorder (P2 cam) to support HD recording.

AJ-HPX2100 combines a high-image-quality, high-sensitivity HD camera with a memory card to provide all of the advanced P2 solid-state functions. Its multi-format capability lets you record in 1080i/720p HD or SD. The AJ-HPX2100 brings new solutions to the production of news and information programs with the recording functions made possible by P2 multi-card slots, such as card selection, hot-swap and loop rec. It also provides immediate transmission with a clip thumbnail display and the convenience of proxy and metadata.

It expands HD's flexibility by putting ING (IT-based news gathering) into your hands with its outstanding mobility, operational readiness and cost-efficiency. The AJ-HPX2100 offers a host of functionality designed specifically for news acquisition and other broadcasting applications, including high-sensitivity digital super gain, DRS (Dynamic Range Stretcher), and digital zoom.

Key features:

Progressive HD CCD

In the new system, a progressive CCD lets you shoot 60p images and use progressive/interlace conversion to attain 1080/59.94i images. This produces outstanding image quality and high sensitivity. It also provides native progressive images in 24p/30p mode.

High-Sensitivity F10 Aperture and Digital Super Gain
The high-sensitivity F10 aperture and digital super gain (frame cumulative mode) let the AJ-HPX2000 record with a high S/N ratio*1 and less of the noise that commonly comes with higher gain. The AJ-HPX2000 also features a line mix function for great fast-action images. The gain, digital super gain and line function can be flexibly combined to achieve highly sensitive recording of up to +74 dB*2 or to suit different shooting conditions

DRS (Dynamic Range Stretching) Function
DRS recognizes the average brightness of highlight and shadow areas and then automatically adjusts the aperture and uses knee control to suppress blown highlights in the shadow areas. In scenes with mixed dark and light areas, such as when moving from indoors to outdoors, DRS automatically provides a wider dynamic range with minimal blown highlights and blocked shadows, eliminating the need to manually tweak the camera for each specific condition.

Maximum 4x Digital Zoom
The AJ-HPX2000's digital zoom electronically increases the magnification rate of the lens by 2x, 3x or 4x. HD images retain their superior resolution even with zooming, and - unlike when a lens extender is used - brightness is not reduced. It's ideal as both a shooting technique and focusing support.

14 bit Digital Processing with 5-Mode Gamma
In the AJ-HPX2000, we offer a 14 bit A/D conversion system, an upgrade over the conventional 12 bit system. We also incorporated a new high-performance digital signal processing (DSP) circuit. The 12-axis color correction matrix lets you make fine adjustments in specific color regions. Functions such as skin detail let you further fine-tune the image.
The DSP circuit also has selectable gamma curves. The mode can be selected from SD, HD, Filmlike 1, Filmlike 2 and Filmlike 3 to expand the video production scope.

Scene Files and Lens Files
  • Scene Files: Store specific camera settings in built-in memory, then retrieve them when needed for quick, easy setup. Four files with settings can be stored in the camera's memory. Files can also be copied onto an SD/SDHC Memory Card, allowing storage of up to eight files. 
  • Lens Files: Store settings for interchangeable lenses. Eight files can be stored in the camera unit, and 64 (8 x 8) files can be saved on an SD/SDHC Memory Card.

Shooting Assist Functions
  • Three User Buttons: Assign a function to each, and then you can select functions with pushbutton ease.
  • Auto Tracking White Balance
  • Focus Assist: Facilitates focusing by displaying the frequency distribution of video signals on a graph.
  • Variable Color Temperature: Color temperature can be adjusted with the jog dial after the white balance is set.
  • Electronic Shutter with Half-Speed: Six fixed speeds of up to 1/2000 sec, plus "half-speed" (180-degree) slow and synchro-scan capability. 
  • Rec Review function for easy checking of recorded results
  • 4-position optical filter
P2 cam's Unique Shooting and Recording Functions

HD/SD Multi-Format Recording
The AJ-HPX2000 records in a total of 30 HD/SD formats. This meets the needs of news, TV program, and general video production. Because the AJ-HPX2000 supports all of the HD/SD formats used around the world, it can produce videos for overseas broadcasts and for use in overseas markets. It uses the DVCPRO HD or AVC-Intra* codec to record in 1080i/720p HD. For SD recording, the AJ-HPX2000's multi-codec capability lets you choose from DVCPRO 50, DVCPRO and DV.

New AVC-Intra Option
The P2 HD Series also support the new AVC-Intra codec by mounting the optional AJ-YBX200G AVC-Intra Codec Board. AVC-Intra, the industry's most advanced compression technology, 
is a professional intra-frame video codec with bit rates of 50 and 100Mbps, utilizing the Hi-10 and Hi-422 profiles of H.264 respectively. 
AVC-Intra provides high-quality 10 bit intra-frame encoding in two modes: AVC-Intra 100 for full-raster mastering video quality, and AVC-Intra 50 for DVCPRO HD quality at half the bit rate, thereby doubling the record time on a P2 card.

48 kHz/16 bit, 4 Channel Digital Audio
The AJ-HPX2000 can record full 48 kHz/16 bit digital audio on all four channels. You can freely select the audio source for each channel, choosing from mic, line, wireless receiver, and others. 
A 5-pin XLR jack with 2 channel compatibility is used for the front mic input. Using the AJ-MC900G optional stereo microphone lets you record stereo with a single mic.

The P2 Card Offers Outstanding Mobility and Reliability
The 64GB* P2 card (AJ-P2C064AG) offers great flexibility and interoperability with leading NLE systems and boasts a high data transfer speed. It records AV data in the MXF file format. This solid-state memory card is highly resistant to shock and vibration, so it offers high reliability and stable recording in the field. 
The P2 card brings a totally new level of mobility to outdoor shooting. It lets the camera start recording immediately from standby mode, and allows shooting to start within two seconds of turning the power on. This speedy response shortens downtime when replacing batteries, and greatly cuts down on battery power consumption by letting you turn the power off during standby. P2 cards can even be exchanged with the power off. 
Recorded data is automatically stored in blank card areas with no cueing required. This eliminates the risk of accidentally overwriting valuable data.
*Use of the 16GB/32GB/64GB card may require a software upgrade for the camcorder. Total card capacity includes space for data management such as system data, therefore, actual usable area is less than capacity indicated on the card.
