Panasonic AG-3DP1 Integrated Twin-lens 3D Camera Recorder
|The Integrated Twin-Lens 3D Camera Recorder Accelerates 3D Video Production
The AG-3DP1 is a P2HD
Series integrated twin-lens 3D camera recorder. This high-end model takes the user-friendliness of the AG-3DA1 integrated twin-lens 3D camera recorder - which brought an innovative solution to 3D shooting and production - to an
even higher level. The AG-3DP1 comes with a newly developed 17x twin-lens zoom lens system that features an expanded range for both wide-angle and telephoto to fit diverse shooting situations. The combination of
high-sensitivity, high-resolution 2.2-megapixel 1/3-type 3MOS sensors and AVC-Intra codec achieves high-quality 3D HD recording with 1920 x 1080 full-pixel resolution and 10 bit 4:2:2 full sampling. Supporting
multi-camera synchronization and Panasonic's Camera Studio System, as well as a variable frame rate (VFR) function*, the AG-3DP1 meets highly sophisticated needs. Operation is easier, too, with new 3D Assist functions
that add reliability and convenience to Z-axis setting (for 3D leaping effects and depth). From sports event broadcasting to movie production, the AG-3DP1 efficiently serves as a main camera, to replace the conventional
rig-type cameras. This integrated twin-lens camera recorder is highly mobile and easy to handle.
|Integrated twin-lens 3D camera recorder:
Eliminates the installation, wiring and adjustment that are required for
rig-type 3D cameras. Places no restrictions on the installation location or camera angle, providing 3D shooting with the same easy operation and mobility as
conventional 2D camera recorders.
New 3D Assist functions:
Three display modes ensure reliable and convenient 3D shooting - a Z-axis waveform display (see bottom photo), warning displays for negative or
positive parallax and a convergence plane display.
Genlock input and TC input/output terminals allow multi-camera synchronization. Panasonic'sCamera
Studio System is also supported for live relays and other broadcast applications.
|Newly Developed Twin-Lens System with Powerful 17x Zooming
The HD twin-lens system was developed exclusively for the AG-3DP1. Its
wide-angle and 17x telephoto settings meet a host of applications in sports, TV series, and movie production. Because the HD twin-lens system is assembled with high precision, it requires no pre-shooting adjustment of the optical axis or
angle of view. Focus, zoom and iris adjustments are synchronized accurately for the left and right lenses. The AG-3DP1 also supports remote control (focus, zoom, iris, convergence, and recording start/stop). It also boasts low chroma
aberration and high resolution, and delivers superb color reproduction, detailed nuances and crisp 3D images even in dark scenes − with minimal flare and
Zoom, Focus, Iris and Convergence
In addition to a zoom ring, focus ring and iris ring that approach the
manual control levels of interchangeable lenses, the AG-3DP1 has an isolated convergence dial.
By changing the convergence angle of the twin lenses inside
the optical unit, the convergence point (the reference plane for 3D images) can be adjusted forward or backward to control leaping effects and depth.
3D Mode Selection for Maximum Zooming Effect: Near/Normal/Extra
Three modes maximize the twin-lens zooming capability. Setting the selector switch to Near, Normal or
Extra optimizes the lens convergence angle range for each shooting distance. This quick and easy setting gives you effective 3D shooting over diverse angles of view.

on areas that show positive parallax. (Safe ranges can be selected from a menu.)
• CONV. (Reference Plane Display): A green edge is displayed around areas that
are within the reference plane (convergence plane).
Z-WFM (Waveform) Display
This function displays
the forward/backward relationship between the subject and the convergence plane as a waveform. It provides a general view of the positioning for the overall
composition. The display range can be selected in two levels from the menu. Waveforms for parts with excessive leaping effects or excessive depth can also
be displayed with warning colors.
Left/Right/Mix/Side By Side Monitor Image Selection
The image displayed on the LCD monitor or viewfinder can be selected from among left lens (with no mode display), right lens (R-IMAGE), left/right mix (MIX) and Side By Side (SIDE) modes.
|High-Sensitivity, High-Quality, Dual 3MOS U.L.T. Image Sensors
Two pairs of 2.2-megapixel
1/3-type 3MOS sensors are mounted left and right. Each one employs full-pixel HD resolution to produce precisely synchronized FULL-HD 3D images. Ultra Luminance
Technology (U.L.T.) enables these image sensors to attain high sensitivity, high-quality images.
20 bit DSP
The AG-3DP1 incorporates a high-performance 20 bit Digital Signal Processor that handles image rendering processes such as gamma and various detail enhancement functions with exceptional precision.

Highly Reliable, Easy-to-Use P2 card Enables Double-Slot Image Acquisition and 2D
3D/2D Acquisition onto Double P2 Card Slots
Two P2 card slots allow 3D/2D image acquisition.
• 3D recording mode: Left
and right channel images with full-pixel HD, full-sampling quality are each synchronized and recorded onto two P2 cards.
• 2D recording mode: 2D LL
left-eye images are recorded simultaneously onto both left and right P2 cards. This expands the double-slot application possibilities for recording images
without left-eye/right-eye visual disparity, and for backup use.
P2 Card Recording Offers High Reliability
Proven Record for Broadcasting The P2 card was originally developed for broadcast use. In addition to its large 64 GB* capacity, it strongly resists
impacts, vibration and temperature changes, and withstands repeated recording and initialization cycles for extended recording use. The card connector section
is designed specifically for professional use, resulting in extremely high durability for insertion and removal. The P2 card and P2HD Series are widely
used in broadcast and movie production industries and have a proven track record for reliability, durability and easy operation.
Versatile MXF File-Based Recording
File-based recording onto memory cards enables high-speed starts, recording
starts with no need for cueing, and protection against accidental data overwriting. The recorded data is organized into MXF files. The files can be
transferred to a nonlinear editor or over a network without the need for digitizing.*
|Support for Slow-/Quick-Motion Recording
Variable Frame Rate in 720p Mode
The Variable Frame Rate (VFR) function was inherited from the Panasonic
VariCam, which is widely used for producing movies, TV series, and TV commercials. It creates a wide range of film-camera like 3D images, such as
overcranking for slow-motion and undercranking for quick-motion effects.
• Normal cinematic shooting (at 24 fps, 25 fps or 30 fps)
refers to the same rate as used in film cameras. The AG-3DP1 can record in 24 fps. Note that 25 fps and 30 fps are the standard frame rates used in the
production of TV commercials, music clips and video media.
• Overcranking (higher-speed shooting) produces a
slow-motion effect. This is especially effective for action scenes like car chases or crashes, or to create a dramatic impact in a scene. For example, when
a scene is shot at 48 fps and played at 24 fps, a slow-motion effect of 1/2x is attained.
• Undercranking (lower-speed shooting) gives you a quick-motion
effect. This technique can be combined with a warp-speed effect to give special emphasis to flowing water, fast-moving clouds, etc. For example, when a scene is
shot at 12 fps and played at 24 fps, a quick-motion effect of 2x is attained.
|Multi-Camera Versatility and Other System Functions for Broadcast Use
GENLOCK IN and TC IN/OUT Terminals Support Multi-Camera
Genlock and time code (TC) input terminals let you synchronize multiple cameras for both editing use and
live-relay shooting. An SMPTE time code generator/reader is built-in. TC IN/OUT terminals allow isolated camera-through connection. The genlock input terminal
also makes it possible to externally lock the time code.
Supports Camera Extension System
AG-CA300G/BS300/EC4G Camera Studio System for P2HD camera recorders is also supported, making it quick and easy
to build a system for a 3D live relay and
3D image acquisition system using multiple cameras. Two BNC cables allow the transmission of high-quality HD digital images, return images, tally signals,
mic signals, and genlock signals over a cable length of 100 meters (328 feet) maximum. A special cable can be used to supply power to the camera.
* For 3D
image transmission, AG-3DP1 needs to be connected separately with dual HD SDI cables.
The AG-EC4G Extension Remote Control Unit or AJ-RC10G Remote Control Unit* offer both studio use and direct
connection to the AG-3DP1. They let you adjust camera images right from where you are, and even control convergence.
3D-Compatible Camera Remote Terminal
A remote terminal (super
mini-jack) on the AG-3DP1 also supports remote control of focus, zoom, iris, convergence, and recording start/stop. The AG-3DA1's remote control can be used.
HD SDI Simultaneous Output with Sync-Rec Function
HD SDI Left/Right terminals on the AG-3DP1 allow camera-through or playback of
left-channel/right-channel FULL HD 3D image outputs (simultaneous). This enables 3D images to be monitored on a BT-3DL2550 3D Video Monitor. When an external
recorder is connected, line recording of camera-through FULL HD 3D video signals is also possible.
HDMI 3D Output
The AG-3DP1 features an HDMI output terminal that outputs FULL HD 3D video signals for viewing on a 3D video monitor. This terminal outputs camera-through
signals or left-channel/right-channel FULL HD 3D playback signals.
*HDMI output and HD SDI output cannot be used simultaneously.
Optional Color and Black-and-White Viewfinders
The optional AJ-CVF100G HD Color Viewfinder employs a 25.4 mm (1 inch)
1,500,000-dot-equivalent (960 x 540 x 3 [RGB]) transmission-type LCOS (Liquid Crystal On Silicon) to achieve high resolution, high brightness and high response. It helps to reduce the possibility of white balance adjustment errors
and other errors in recording. The 3D Assist functions can be checked in colors.The optional AJ-HVF21KG 50.8 mm (2 inches) Black-and-White HD Viewfinder can also be used.
Unislot Wireless Receiver
