Dubbed the P2 Gear, the 1.1-pound, battery-operated AG-HPG10 provides viewing, backup recording and file management of P2 recorded content in a single, small portable unit.
With two P2 card slots and a 3.5-inch 4:3 LCD monitor, the P2 Gear offers on-the-spot playback and viewing of P2 content in multiple formats (1080i, 720p, 576i and 480i). The heavy-duty, shock-resistant player is equipped with speakers, easy-to-use controls and professional input/outputs (IEEE 1394, USB 2.0 and HD-SDI) for essential in-the-field functions including: viewing clips recorded on a P2 card or the FOCUS FS-100 portable hard drive, copying files to an external hard drive, outputting a playback signal to a large monitor and backup recording with P2 HD/P2 or tape-based DVCPRO cameras. To expedite workflow, the P2 Gear can be connected to a Windows PC or Mac and used as P2 card reader for data transfers into nonlinear editing systems. In addition, it can be connected to a PC or MAC for baseband monitoring or integrated with conventional tape-based decks and recorders as a source device without control.
Playback and scene clip viewing in 1080i (24p, 24pA, 25p, 30p, 50i, 60i), 720p (24p, 24pN, 25p, 25pN, 30p, 30pN, 50p, 60p), 576i (25p, 50i) and 480i (24p, 24pA, 30p, 60i)
