Memory Card Portable Recorder
A Single Portable Unit
that Provides Viewing, Backup and
File Management Functions,
the P2 Gear Recorder
Gives You Even Greater P2 Mobility
High Speed and Reliability at a Low Cost
Developed for professional use, the P2 card is a compact solid-
state memory card that offers superior reliability, large capacity,
and high transfer speed. Its outstanding resistance to temperature
fluctuation, vibration and impact makes it the superior choice for
field recording in harsh conditions. The P2 card has passed
insertion/removal tests of more than 30,000 cycles and can be
used many times over a long period.
P2 recorders have no transport mechanism or rotating parts, so
startup is fast, power consumption is low, and maintenance is
reduced. This means both lower costs and less environmental
impact. P2 can reduce production time too. P2 files can be
transferred directly to IT (PC-based) systems, edited with nonlinear
editors and transferred via networks, without digitizing.
P2HD Multi-Format Viewing
Equipped with two P2 card slots and an LCD monitor, P2 Gear lets
you quickly and easily view content on P2 cards. Its multi-format
and multi-codec capabilities mean that you can play back P2 files
of any format recorded with an AG-HVX200 or AG-HPX500
camera-recorder. You can display, play back, and view recordings
in DVCPRO HD, as well as in SD in DVCPRO50, DVCPRO and DV.
P2 Gear also supports 50/60-Hz operation.

P2 Gear comes equipped to provide SDI output (HD/SD and four
embedded audio channels supported), component and composite
video output, and audio output (CH1/CH2 pin jacks). This makes it
easy to preview recorded images on a large external monitor. In
broadcasting applications, P2 Gear can be used for microwave
feeds from field locations.
