I have been told from some European Panasonic engineers that the AVC Ultra Version of the 3 D camera will be shown at NAB. And it will be delivered soon after the fair.

Does this sound realistic? Can we get any official statement from the product manager?

Could be possible but you will not get confirmation today. Possibly on April 11th.

Hi,

Before this gets crazy, this is not AVC Ultra. It does not have P2 Cards, but rather SDHC cards. No where in this marketing stuff does it identify what format it is. I am not saying what it is as I am not totally sure, but when I am clear, i will jump back in.

Best,

Jan

Panasonic announced the AVC Ultra Codec with 200 Mbit/sec and 10 Bit. On the same page is written that this will be used also for the 3D camera which is under development. And there are some pictures showing a P2 version of the 3D camera. I am not talking about the AVCHD camera. Has the release of the AVC Ultra 3D camera been postponed to 2011?

Is it possible to get two HD-SDI outputs from the AVCHD camera to record it on an external recorder with less compression?

Thanks
Charles

You are asking a lot Charles. At NAB last year, Panasonic displayed a prototype 3D camera very similar to the camera that was shown at this years CES. The prototype did have a hint that it was P2 based.

At present, 3D content producers have to hand-build their own 3D production systems by physically connecting multiple 2D production devices. Panasonic is now starting to work on developing a twin-lens, 3D camera system. Also, Panasonic’s Plasma displays have been used in many post-production facilities in Hollywood, thanks to their high-quality imaging performance, which has been endorsed by leading Hollywood professionals. Technologies and expertise obtained from their use in post-production has enabled Panasonic to further develop high-quality 3D viewing performance in its Plasma technologies. As a result of this process, Panasonic’s 3D Plasma display system will help 3D content producers to quickly and easily evaluate the image quality of 3D content.

Each component of Panasonic’s innovative 3D Full HD production system has unique features. The twin-lens P2 camera recorder enables the capturing of natural and high-quality live 3D images. Thanks to the non-mechanical solid-state construction of the P2 system, the camera recorder will be compact enough to allow more flexible 3D shooting, thereby maximizing the creativity of the filmmakers by eliminating the stress factor from the use of the equipment.

3D Full HD recording using Panasonic’s proprietary P2 system also enables recording of two channels of Full HD images on the P2 card. P2’s non-mechanical construction and compactness will also be incorporated into the company’s 3D image recording and editing equipment to make production in the field highly flexible and efficient.

Panasonic’s 3D Drive System enables the display of Full HD moving pictures for the left and the right eyes, so large screen 3D viewing will become possible. The excellent moving picture performance and accurate color reproduction characteristics achieved by Plasma’s self-illuminating technology enables the realization of high-quality 3D image evaluation capabilities required in the professional content production field.

Thank you Jan and Steve for correcting the rumors. The AVCHD 3D camera will be a success in the semiprofessional market, no doubt. But for documentaries most of the TV station will not accept a lot of AVCHD codec. And it is more or less a law that 3D on big screens will suffer with high encoded footage.
So will it be possible to record the footage with two extra recorders via SDI or HDMI out?

Thanks
Charles

Anyone find any information on post production with this camera? It wasn't clear in the press release if the footage is actually combined in camera to make a 3D image, or if 2 seperate streams of video are being captured and have to be combined in post. Thanks.
