The new AJ-HPX3100 may just change the way you view high-end broadcast camera recorders. Its new body design has a low centre of gravity for added stability and gives you an unobstructed view to both sides. It weighs only about 3.9 kg (8.6 lb). Two P2 card slots reside on the side where the main controls are arranged. Boasting excellent mobility and easy operation, the camera section incorporates a 2.2 megapixel 2/3-type 3CCD, a high-performance DSP, and an AVC-Intra Codec LSI. The AJ-HPX3100 records broadcast-quality HD video with full-pixel (1920 x 1080) resolution using 10 bit/4:2:2 sampling. It has a high sensitivity of F11 (60i) or F12 (50i) at 2,000 lx and low noise with a 59 dB S/N ratio to assure the level of recording quality that is demanded for broadcasting and video production.
