Technology Guides

Like the AG-HPX250, the AG-HPX255 P2 Camcorder is broadcast HD approved and fully featured for television production. Importantly, it is compatible with the optional AG-EC4G Extension Control Unit for fast switching to studio mode. 

This combines with Genlock input, TC input and output, and HD SDI output to allow multi-camera operation that includes camera control.

Featuring a versatile 22x zoom lens and high-sensitivity/low noise 1/3-type 2.2 megapixel U.L.T. (Ultra Luminance Technology) 3MOS image sensor, it uses an AVC-Intra codec to enable high-quality recording of Full-HD (1920 x 1080), 10 bit, 4:2:2 full sample images.

Together with features such as a variable frame rate (VFR) for slow-motion and quick-motion images, this allows the new AG-HPX255 to offer a level of performance that approaches shoulder-type P2 models, while providing easy operation for image production and broadcasting use.

*The AJ-RC10 Camera Remote Control Unit cannot be used with the AG-HPX255. Camera studio systems using the AG-BS300 Base Station are also not supported.
