The AJ-PX5100 2/3 type B4 lens mount shoulder camera recorder combines superb image production and exchangeable lenses with a light built. The AJ-PX5000G’s three 2.2M pixel MOS sensors deliver a horizontal resolution of 1000 TV lines and sensitivity of F13 at 50i and a signal to noise ratio of 62dB.

The camcorder features HDR (HLG) support, dual codec recording with AVC-proxy and can record in AVC-Intra200/100/5 and AVC-LongG25/50. It includes two slots for P2 cards and 2 slots for microP2 cards. The unit is 50Hz- and 59.94Hz-switchable for global usage.

Incorporating the real-time messenger protocol (RTMP) function, the PX5100 camcorder can be used for interviews in news reporting, producing documentaries and other special feature stories. With its breadth of recording options, exceptional image quality, and expandability the AJ-PX5100 is also targeted at high-end corporate and sports production, as well as the rental market.

High Sensitivity, Low Noise 2/3 type 3MOS Image Sensors

The 2.2 megapixel 2/3 type 3MOS (RGB) image sensors offer fullpixel HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, F12 (59.94 Hz) or F13 (50 Hz) sensitivity, and low noise with an S/N of 62 dB (with DNR ON). It also achieves rich gradation and vibrant colour reproduction.

HDR Compliant (HLG “Hybrid Log-Gamma”)

In addition to being equipped with HLG* images, the following functions assist HLG image acquisition.

  • SDR Monitoring Gamma: Gamma curves for monitoring HLG images with the SDR viewfinder or other SDR monitor. These gamma curves possess characteristics for expressing the gradation in high-brightness area while maintaining the contrast of ordinary-brightness area.
  • HDR/SDR Simultaneous Output: Dual SDI can output both HDR (HLG) and SDR (monitoring gamma) simultaneously.
  • One-Push HLG Selector for Viewfinder: While the viewfinder display with monitoring gamma ordinary, the gradation of highbrightness area can be checked by selecting HLG temporarily.
  • High-Brightness Zebra Display:
    The zebra pattern can be displayed in white-out areas of the viewfinder image.

* BT.709 colour gamut (BT.2020 is not supported)

FHD Image Acquisition by High-Quality AVC-ULTRA Codecs

The AVC-ULTRA codecs feature high-quality, high-efficiency H.264 based video compression. The main recording can be selected from high-quality AVC-Intra200 for mastering applications, AVC-Intra100 with FHD/60p/50p support, AVC-Intra50, or AVC-LongG (50/25/12) for FHD10-bit 4:2:2 with affordable bit rate. While offering a low bit rate suitable for previewing, sub recording AVC-Proxy (proxy data) provides an FHD resolution mode that can be used as is for breaking news and similar applications. The conventional DVCPRO codec is also supported.

HD/SD Multi-Image Format

Images can be acquired by the 1080/60p/50p/60i/50i/30p/24p/25p, 720/60p/50p/30p/24p/25p HD format and SD (480/60i, 576/50i) format.
