VITEC Announces Focus FS-P250 Proxy Recorder for Panasonic AG-HPX250 AVC-Intra Camera

Sunday, April 15, 2012 3:00 PM

VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video solutions, today enhanced the P2 production workflow with the introduction of the Focus FS-P250 Proxy Recorder. The Focus FS-P250 Proxy Recorder records H.264 proxy clips in parallel with the high-resolution clips of the Panasonic AG-HPX250 P2 HD handheld camcorder. While users can both instantly view streamed clips and input custom metadata from the Focus FS-P250 web interface.

While recording proxy clips, 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 utilize 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 Business Unit of Panasonic. “Thanks to our partnership with Vitec, this will be possible, including live streaming of the proxy video over Wi-Fi. With the FS-P250, our AG-HPX250 customers will be able to take immediate advantage of emerging production tools utilizing wireless technologies and the cloud.”

“VITEC is honored 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 AG-HPX250 camera as it enables collaborative cloud-based workflows for AVC-Intra mobile acquisition.”
