Panasonic AG-HVX200P and Time-Code
on Dec 17, 2009 at 4:53:37 am

I have a Panasonioc AG-HVX200P and want to sync a portable,high-resolution audio recorder with time code. The camera uses firewire. The audio devices use BNC or another type of connector. Does anyone have a solution to make the sync work? I want to set free run TC to both then disconnect and match audio up with TC in edit.

The HVX200 won't jam sync to an external TC source, but you can easily manually sync in post. Here's a plugin that easily automates this process:

You can use firewire to sync two cameras together. So you can't use it to sync an audio source?

I wouldn't see how you'd do that- Firewire is Firewire data timecode. Audio timecode coming in from an external recorder is audio timecode- not compatible. You could always feed audio timecode into one of the audio inputs of the HVX200- that would give you something. But as the HVX200 is a prosumer camera it's not setup to jam sync the way a higher end camera is. You can Firewire sync two HVX200's together using a special protocol specifically setup by Panasonic to do this, but it has zero to do with audio recorders running standard audio or LITC timecode- closed system.

So changing the question slightly Noah. The HMC 150 allows timecode to be synced via the RCA jacks above the XLRs. Is this a new change to that model that isn't available on the HVX200P? I'm asking because I'm also considering purchasing a production quality recorder, like an edirol, and I am assuming I can come out the RCA jacks to set TC between the two, break the connection and record. Am I mistaken in assuming this?

Don't know- haven't tried that but I doubt it's jam syncable to audio timecode, more like to other 150 cameras. But it's a good question for your dealer.

Talked to Panasonic rep. Can't be done. Thanks to everyone who responded. This is a great resource.
