Introduction

The AG-DVX100 has captured the imagination of creative filmmakers, broadcasters, and video professionals around the world, with its 24p (progressive) capabilities. Panasonic has won a total of 15 Emmys, 12 of them for advancements in the area of digital video technology. Panasonics engineers are continuously pushing the limits of product design and the AG-DVX100 is a prime example of their innovation and imagination.

What is 24p?

Lets start with film, which is shot at 24 frames per second. Inherent in this capture rate, is a motion blur that is used by the artistic filmmaker to draw the attention of the viewer to his subject. In the movie theater, film is projected at 48 frames per second due to a shutter in the projector. The AG-DVX100 uses an electronic shutter which the user can set to different speeds. When you watch 24p, you know you are being told a story. Its a different look. Its the difference between the look of a soap opera or the six oclock news and the look of a feature film. There is a three part answer to what must be done to create the cinematic look in video

What is Cine Gamma?

Fact: The contrast ratio of film is greater than contrast ratio of video. Can the range of bright to dark areas be correctly exposed in a scene? Video has been optimized for high ambient lighting during image capture (studio) and viewing (living room). Therefore image brightness has a been much more important than contrast ratio. Film, when used in cinematic presentations, has a very high wide dynamic range providing great detail in both the brightest and darkest areas of the image. The Cine-like Gamma feature of the AG-DVX100 emulates this wider exposure range characteristic and with the recommended 1/2 f-stop under exposure should help to maintain increased highlight handling abilities.

What is Progressive?

Rather than capturing one half of a picture (the odd lines) and 1/60th of a second later capturing the second half of the picture (the even lines), wouldn't it be better to capture an entire frame of video with no temporal (time) difference? Progressive recording does accomplishes this! What progressive recording does is creates a picture with double the scan lines of a conventional interlaced picture, to create a noticeably sharper image.

What is 24p Playback?

If you made a recording in 24p or 24p advanced and now you want to play it back on a standard NTSC video monitor. The AG-DVX100 has a built in telecine or conversion circuit so that you can playback your 24p recordings on a NTSC Monitor. There are two different schemes used in the AG-DVX100, 2:3 and 2:3:3:2. In 24p playback mode we use a 2:3 pulldown scheme and in 24p Advanced mode we use 2:3:3:2. This is actually a method of mapping the 24p into the 30 frames per second NTSC standard video. See the next page for additional details.

What is 24p Playback? Cont
Here is a graphical view of what is taking place when we playback our 24p recorded video.

Main Features

New CCD Imaging System Exceptional picture quality, due to a new 1/3 inch, three CCD progressive imaging system that has 410,000 pixels per chip. This new system was developed specifically for broadcast and professional applications. These new CCDs are able to record light as low as three lux, enabling the shooter to record nighttime events in good detail. The picture quality is outstanding, with a high signal- to- noise ratio and low smear in bright areas. Newly developed Zoom Lens The DVX100 uses a Leica Dicomar lens which incorporates the optical technology of Leica Camera AG. This lens system employs 15 lens elements in 11 groups, including two aspherical lenses, to render a shaper image. A Leica multicoating process is applied to the lenses to reduce flare and ghosts. The 10X zoom has been designed to increase the lens wide-angle (f=4.5 to 45mm) capabilities. The zoom lens utilizes a cam-driven manual zoom ring, with quick, nimble manual zooming as well as a multi-speed servo driven zoom rocker switch, plus a three-speed handle zoom. Optical Image Stabilizer Compensates for Hand Held Production Incorporated in the DVX100 is an OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) that compensates for slight hand shaking that may occur when shooting handheld. A gyrosensor detects handshake and sends signals to a linear motor, which adjusts the lens to compensate. This process takes place prior to the CCD image capture rather than in the downstream electronic processing, this minimizes any effect of handshake. Worlds First DV 24p Mode and Cine-Like Gamma The DVX100 is the worlds first handheld camera designed with video & cinema looks. You have a choice of three shooting modes, which are selectable, 24p (24 fps progressive) for images with a movie-like look and motion, 30p (30 fps progressive) or standard 60i (60 fps interlaced). Images that are captured in 24p mode, Re converted to either 2:3 (24p Mode) or (24p Advanced) with a 2:3:3:2 pulldown sequence. And recorded onto the video tape in the standard 60i Video format, which allows for playback on an ordinary DV VCR and TV monitor and edited on a DV system.
The Gamma settings menu curve allows you to select from four gamma curves:

Audio Rec Used for selecting the method of recording audio, 12 bit (12bit/32kHz) or 16 bit
(16 bit/48kHz). 16 bit audio recording is preferred.
Mic ALC This item Allows the user to turn ON or OFF the automatic level control for the

Microphone.

Mic Gain 1 This item allows the user to select the input level of the external microphone that is connected to INPUT 1 connector. Either 50dB or 60 dB, see your MICs specs. Mic Gain 2 This item allows the user to select the input level of the external microphone that is connected to INPUT 2 connector. Either 50dB or 60 dB, see your MICs specs. Time Code A Time code is used for accurate video editing of the recorded video tape. A
special internal generator will place an 80 bit code or number on every recorded frame. The VCR will use this number for precise identification of a frame when editing. This code is recorded with the video and audio signals and is stored in the sub code area on the DV tape. This code contains the hour, minute, second and frame number. In the 80 bits of time code you have a lot of information, such as drop frame information, color frame information and user bit information.
The drop frame is used to keep accurate timing between the vertical timing and the actual time. The drop frame is bit number 10, this bit identifies if the drop frame or the non-drop frame format is being used. If it is 1 the unit is placed into the drop frame mode and will account for the missing frame numbers which are missing due to the timing of the vertical and time. If it is 0 it will be placed into the Non-drop Mode. In the 24p mode we use NDF only. There are 32 User Bits in each 80 bit code, these user bits can be used to identify the user information, the time, the date, the time code generators value, or the frame rate. There are two ways to start recording time code, record run and free run. Normally, for most productions the VCRs time code is set to the Record run mode. In this mode the time code will be set to zero at the start of the days recording (operates only during record) and a continuous record is produced on each video tape covering all takes. In the free run mode the time code is running regardless of the VCRs operation mode.

Marker This item allows the user to turn OFF or On a measurement value of the video
level. When on, at the bottom left of the viewfinder or LCD a measurement of the video level from the center of these displays will be displayed. This is very useful to the user that utilizes manual iris.

6. Video Glossary

24p 24 frames per second progressive, a standard for digital video 4:1:1 A sampling frequency ratio used in digitizing a video pictures luminance and color difference components (Y, R-Y, and B-Y). In this ratio the luminance is sampled at 13.5 MHz and R-Y , B-Y are each sampled at 3.37 MHz. 4:2:2 A sampling frequency ratio used in digitizing a video pictures luminance and color difference components (Y, R-Y, and B-Y). In this ratio the luminance is sampled at 13.5 MHz and R-Y, B-Y are each sampled at 6.75 MHz. This method of digitizing provides a wider chrominance bandwidth relative to luminance. A ALC Automatic Level Control, a circuit that is used to maintain a constant signal level. Amplifier A component that increases the level of an audio signal from line level to speaker level. Analog A signal that can be continuously varied in amplitude and frequency. Analog Components Video signals in which a continuously variable voltage or current represents the value of a pixel. Aspect Ratio The ratio of the width to height of a video screen or film when it is projected on a screen. The old standard NTSC aspect ratio was 1.33 to 1 or 4 to 3, but now with at advent High Definition technology 16 by 9 is common. B Back Light The main function of the backlight is to separate the individual subjects from the background and give them depth and dimension. Back Porch The period of time during horizontal blanking that follows the horizontal sync pulse and continues to the beginning of active video. Backlit Refers to the illumination used to light a projectors control panel or the buttons of a remote control, so it can be used in the dark. Black Level The level of the video signal that corresponds to the maximum limits of the black areas of the picture. Blanking or Composite Blanking Related to composite sync, this signal has both horizontal and vertical components and is at its negative level whenever video is to be blanked or turned off. Blanking Level Also known as pedestal, it is the level of a video signal, which separates the range that contains the picture information from the range that contains the synchronizing information. The level of the front and back porches. Is Zero IEEE units. C CCD Charge Coupled Device CCIR - Comite Consultatif International Radiocommunications, the French standards body which now falls under the control of the ITU-R. CCIR 601 (ITU-R 601) - This standard defines the encoding parameters of digital television. Charged Coupled Device Is a sensor used in scanners, camcorders, digital cameras, etc., to capture an image. CCDs work by converting light into electrical energy. Chroma The color information contained in a video signal, consisting of hue (phase angle) and saturation (amplitude) of the color sub carrier. Also, known as Chrominance. Chrominance The color part of a signal, relating to the hue and saturation but not to the brightness or luminance of the signal, e.g. black, gray and white, have no chrominance, but any colored signal has both chrominance and luminance. U,V: Cr, Cb: I,Q: (R-Y, B-Y) represent the chrominance information of a signal.

Coated Optics Is lens with a special coating to minimize the amount of light reflected back to the lamp, and the amount of ambient light that mingles with the focused light leaving the lens. Codec Coder Decoder, a device used to encode a signal and decode it. Color Bars A test signal that should be recorded at the beginning of every videotape. The color bars test signal provides the necessary elements of a video signal that are added during the initial set up of a tape machine. Color Burst A few (8 to 10) cycles of 3.58MHz color sub carrier, which occur during the back porch interval. Color burst amplitude is 40 IEEE units and phase is 180 degrees. The color oscillator of a color television receiver is phase locked to the color burst. Color Difference Signal The calculation of the chroma signal (R-Y, B-Y and G). Color Phase The correct timing relationship within a color display - color is considered to be in-phase when the hue is reproduced correctly. Color Sub carrier The 3.58MHz signal which carries color information. This signal is superimposed on the luminance level. Amplitude of the color sub carrier represents saturation and phase angle represents hue. Color Temperature A measurement of overall color of a source of light, measured in degrees Kelvin (K). The higher the Kelvin reading the more blue the light, the lower the Kelvin Temperature the redder the light. Normally, video uses lights that are 3200 Degrees Kelvin. Component The normal interpretation of a component video signal is one in which the luminance and chrominance are sent as separate components, e.g. Analog components in MII and Betacam VCRs, digital components UCRCB in CCIR re 601. RGB is, however, also a component signal. Component video signals retain maximum bandwidth, unlike composite systems. Composite A composite video signal is one in which the luminance and chrominance information have been combined using one of the coding standards: NTSC, PAL, SECAM, etc. Composite Sync A signal consisting of horizontal sync pulses, vertical sync pulses, and equalizing pulses only, with a no signal reference level. Composite Video A mixed signal comprised of the luminance (black and white), chrominance (color), blanking pulses, sync pulses and color burst. Compression A process used to store digital information in a smaller block of space than it would normally take Compression Ratio This is the ratio of data in the original video picture signal to the amount of data after compression. Contrast The range of light and dark values in a picture or the ratio between the maximum and the minimum brightness values. Low contrast is shown mainly as shades of gray, while high contrast is shown as blacks and whites with very little gray. It is also a TV monitor adjustment, which increases or decreases the level of contrast of a televised picture. Contrast Ratio A method of measuring the dynamic range of an image. A large contrast ratio indicates that the projector works well despite extraneous light. D DATA Digital information stored or used by a computer dB Decibel dBm A measurement of sound, measurement made across 600 ohms. DCT - Discrete Cosine Transformer is widely used to compress video; here 8x8 picture elements are converted to 8x8 frequency elements. This way the higher frequency numbers can be minimized and compression made simpler. DV Digital Video

being passed through. Letterbox Format used to fit wide screen movies (1.85:1 and 2.35:1, for example) on the average, 1.33:1 TV screen. The image is shrunk to fit the screen, leaving blank space on the top and bottom. Line Frequency The rate or number of video lines that are being read or scanned by the electron beam per interval. There are 262 1/2 lines scanned per field, 525 lines scanned per frame and 15,750 lines of video information scanned every second. Liquid Crystal A liquid in which the molecules are arranged in a regular pattern. LTC (Longitudinal Time Code) This is another expression for the SMPTE time code signal recorded onto the third audio track of a videocassette tape. Luminance refers to the amount of visually effective light emitted by a light source. Typically expressed in nits, foot lamberts (fL) or candelas per square meter (cd/m2). One fL = 3.43 cd/m2 or 3.42626 nits, One cd/m2 = 0.292fL or 1 nit Lux A unit of measuring the e intensity of light. (1 FC=10.76 lux). M MHz Short for megahertz, which is 1 million Hz. MPEG Motion Pictures Expert Group Megabyte One million bytes of data. Memory A storage place for computer data. Microphone A piece of equipment that will convert sound into electrical signals for recording and use by audio equipment, such as sound amplifiers. N NTSC National Television Systems Committee National Television Standard Committee (NTSC) This organization formulated the NTSC system, 525 lines 60 field; usually taken to mean the NTSC color television system itself, or its interconnect standards. Non-Drop Frame A type of time code that runs at thirty frames a second and does not allow for the slower color frame rate of television. NTSC Color Bars A pattern generated by the NTSC Generator, consisting of eight equal width color bars. Colors are white (75%), black (7.5% set-up level), 75% saturated pure colors red, green, and blue, and 75% saturated hues of yellow, cyan, and magenta. (Mixtures of two colors in 1:1 ratio without third color). O One Volt "Peak to Peak" - A reference to the measurement of a video signal which should go from -40 IRE units for sync up to 100 IRE units for the luminance level. The distance from -40 to 100 (140 IRE units) is referred to as 1 volt peak to peak. P PCM Pulse Code Modulation Peak White The white portion of the video signal. Pedestal The level of the video signal representing black, normally set at 7.5 IRE units. Phone Plug This type of plug is mostly used on a microphone or pair of headsets. There are basically two types stereo and mono. Phono Plug Known as a RCA plug it is used with audio amplifiers. Pixel Picture Element or Pix Element; related to a particular image address in digital systems or to the smallest reproducible element in analog systems. Pixel Depth The number of bits used to address a pixel. Also called color depth, the bit depth determines the number of colors that can be displayed at one time. Power Zoom A zoom lens that has a motor, which allows you to zoom in and out from the

systems today, and when used, is usually accompanied by sub carrier. T Tape A medium capable of storing an electronic signal and consisting of backing, binder, and iron oxide coating. The orientation of the iron oxide determines whether the tape can be used for helical scan video recording. Tape Guides Guides that are replaced on a VTR that make sure the tape stays within the correct path from the supply reel to the take up reel. Test Signals Signals such as color bars, stair step, multiburst and cross hatch that are used in the setting up and checking out of a VTR. Time Code - A labeling system that is used to identify a specific frame of videotape. It can be an audio signal recorded on Track 2 or a video signal that is recorded in the vertical interval of a tape. Time Code Editing By recording a sequential time code along with the video and audio material, you can obtain a more precise reference for editing. Each frame has its own number or code, which tells the time in hours, minutes, and seconds, and includes a frame number. The world standard code is called SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) and has also been adopted by the IEC (International Elecrotechnical Commission). Time codes permit very fast and accurate editing. Automatic editing is possible under computer control. Tripod A three-legged stand on top of which a camera is mounted Tripod Head The top portion of a tripod where its legs meet and the camera is mounted; friction or fluid-head tripod designs are available. U UL - Underwriters Laboratory. Underwriters Laboratory (UL) A non-profit safety organization in the U.S. that inspects and certifies the products sold in the U.S. for their safety standards. V VCR - Video Cassette Recorder. VITC - Vertical Interval Time code VTR Video tape recorder Vertical Interval That portion of the video signal that includes the vertical blanking, the vertical sync pulses and the pre and post-equalizing pulses. It is also the area where other information that is carried with the television signal, such as captioning and satellite instructions, are inserted. Vertical Scan The action of the electron beam sweeping across the entire face of the display. Video Level A measurement of the video level or luminance level of the video signal. The video level should not exceed 100 IRE units. W Watt Is a unit of measurement of power. WFM (WAVEFORM MONITOR) - A type of oscilloscope that is used to display the luminance, chrominance and timing diagrams of the video signal. White Balance A method of setting a camera for the correct color temperature. X Y Y Signal The luminance portion of the color signal. Z Zoom Lens A lens with a variable focal length. Which allows you to adjust the size of the image on a screen by adjusting the zoom lens.

Full description

The arrival of the AG-DVX100B is an important and progressive step in supporting cost effective Standard Definition production. The AG-DVX100B is evidence of Panasonics commitment to recognized standard formats keeping pace with new products like P2. The AG-DVX100B addresses some of the modifications program makers have been asking for with improvements throughout the unit. Where cost effective system set-ups have previously been out of reach of restricted budgets an important enhancement is a TC Synchronization setting that assists in multi camera shooting. Connecting two or more AG-DVX100B units together with a DV Cable (IEEE1394) allows synchronous time code settings. This is the first Camcorder in this class with this ability, which was previously only available on much bulkier and more costly cameras. For situations where remote controls are necessary, iris and focus control are added making the Camcorder even more versatile. Now using any of the currently available aftermarket products, all the Cameras key functions are available by remote making it more usable in rigs, on cranes or in any situations where the user can't be close to the unit. The LCD screen will now show letterbox for 16:9 shooting. The space above and below will show relevant shooting data and the screen is now better protected against drops. The basic design is unchanged; however there are some small changes in the overall package creating a more sophisticated look. The screw for tripods is now changeable, the internal mic has been enhanced and the speaker has been moved nearer to the LCD screen to make the audio easier to hear during playback. Improved color reproduction with advanced image adjustments have enhanced this already high quality unit allowing productions to cut material shot on this Camcorder into other formats with even more ease.
