New Update - Now records broadcast codecs onto fast SD Cards

A new update lets you to use fast SD Cards to record AVC-Intra200 and AVC-Intra100 broadcast codecs. Although these cards are not guaranteed to be as reliable as the Micro P2 Cards the new V60 and V90 rated cards with their high consistent write speeds will be reliable in the field.

Key Features

The AJ-PX270 covers both low-bit rate and high-bit rate recording thanks to its inherent support for the AVC-ULTRA codec family. In addition to the established AVC-Intra100, the camera has AVC-LongG, which is designed for applications where file size is critical and enables long recording times. With the AVC-LongG codec, it becomes possible to record four times longer than with AVC-Intra100 on the same memory space thanks to the smaller file size. AVC-LongG enables long 1920x1080 10bit 4:2:2 broadcast quality recording, which is supported by the camera’s newly developed high-sensitivity and low-noise 1/3 type 3MOS sensors. Furthermore, the handheld optionally supports AVC-Intra200 that enables master level recording.

Two built-in microP2 card slots offer ultimate low cost operation. Panasonic microP2 card technology features the same reliability of P2 cards and can be used without an adapter in the AJ-PX270. Simultaneous recording to the two memory cards is also possible for backup purposes. The PX270s newly designed built-in compact 22x zoom lens covers a broad range of shooting angles from 28mm wide to 616mm tele. The lens’ three rings (Cam-type zoom, Focus, Iris) offer the comfortable manual control experienced with exchangeable lenses, but without the need for actual lens changes.

The camera recorder features a Wireless LAN function via an optional Wireless LAN dongle and supports the existing Panasonic live uplink solutions. Dongle support for wireless workflow over a mobile 3G/4G/LTE network is also scheduled for the near future. Thanks to these wireless features, users of the AJ-PX270 can easily uplink low-bit rate proxy data and full quality broadcast content. The handheld camera’s network function makes the production workflow more efficient and accelerates the broadcasting workflow from shooting to on-air.

 

FIRMWARE

Ver 36.51

New Features

  1. Main-line recording onto an SDXC/SDHC memory card available on the market, which is supposed to be for use in an urgent situation, has so far been restricted to the codecs at 50Mbps or less. But, to meet the users’ demand, this restriction is removed.
    However, that is not to guarantee the recording and playback operations with SDXC/SDHC memory cards.
  2. Tally control from external devices (e.g. AK-HRP200 ROP) is supported.
    No menus are newly added. This feature works according to the current Tally menu.
    TALLY_LAMP (IP communication supported)
  3. The following dongle are supported.
    WLAN :D-Link DWA-171(Australia) , LTE :Verizon USB730L (US)
  4. Only for China model, the internal processing of ATW function is changed at customers’ request. AJ-PX298MC, AJ-PX285MC

Improvement

  1. The related menus are not displayed so that microP2 B cards are not CPS-formatted by mistake.
  2. The cameras are designed to start installing the firmware update immediately after it is downloaded via P2 Cast, and an improvement is made to this current design. Menu item “Download Only” is added. This menu item can temporarily end the update process once the download is complete when the update command is received from P2 Cast.
  3. In UDP transmission, the communication process of streaming format is improved.
  4. P2 SS becomes unable to be connected, and this problem is fixed.
  5. Improvement in stability at boot-up
  6. System error may occur on rare occasions under the specific conditions, and this problem is fixed.

Ver 36.18

Improvement

  • The firmware version 36.16 released on April 25 had an error.
  • If a clip is copied using the camera, E-36 system error occurs. It was corrected.

Ver 36.16

New Features

  1. P2 Cast additional features support
    • Capability to send Proxy to a server with a specified address
    • The camera receives the location information transmitted via P2 Cast from a mobile phone.
  2. Information about a bonding device such as the state of communication, battery remaining capacity, etc. can be displayed on the camera. This function is extended so that the information can be obtained via Live-U central server. Network Profile data is used for this operation, so the P2 Network Setting Software is changed so that the data can be edited.
  3. Additional LTE dongle support
    MF825C (China only) PIXELA PIX-MT100 (Japan only)
  4. Additional WLAN dongle support
    AJ-WM50MC (China only) PLANEX GW-900D (Japan only)

Improvement

  1. The indicator for remaining card capacity is corrected because it has a problem when the format is AVC-G50/24PN, AVC-G25/24PN or AVC-G12/24PN.

    Symptom

    • For example:Indication of capacity in AVC-G50/24PN
      False: 178 min / True: 145 min
    • Incorrectly indicated remaining capacity on the screen or at PROPERTY
    • A card with little capacity left, normally an un-recordable card, is mistaken as recordable.
  2. The camera cannot be connected with the wireless router by DHCP. This problem is fixed.
