NAB 2012: VITEC concentrates on Focus FS-P250

The Focus FSP250 Proxy Recorder records H.264 proxy clips in parallel with the high-resolution clips of the Panasonic AG-HPX250 P2 HD handheld camcorder. Users can view streamed clips and input custom metadata from the Focus FS-P250 web interface. The Focus FS-P250 also captures matching timecode and camera-based metadata from the Panasonic AG-HPX250. The user may select various resolutions and bit rates for proxy recording depending on workflow and application. The web interface can be accessed from either a PC or mobile device using the optional Panasonic AJ-WM30 Wireless Module. “Our customers have been eager to utilise the new proxy modes and wireless metadata entry found in the AJ-HPX3100 P2 camcorder, and they have also been asking for a way to enable these features in our more affordable, lighter weight cameras such as the AG-HPX250,” said Kunihiko Miyagi, director of professional AV, Panasonic. “Thanks to our partnership with Vitec, this will be possible, including live streaming of the proxy video over WiFi. With the FS-P250, our AG-HPX250 customers will be able to take immediate advantage of emerging production tools utilising wireless technologies and the cloud. “VITEC is honoured to be a long time solutions partner with Panasonic,” said Mark D’Addio, VP of Business Development for VITEC. The Focus FS-P250 is a perfect companion recorder for the AGHPX250 camera as it enables collaborative cloud-based workflows for AVC-Intra mobile acquisition.”
