It records up to 1080p 59.94/50 video to microP2 and P2 memory cards, and features HDMI, 3G-SDI, and analog inputs/outputs for connecting to a wide range of video and audio devices. This makes the AJ-PG50 an ideal solution for backup recording, monitoring, previewing, file copying, and many other critical field uses. Video can be monitored and played back on a built-in 3.5" LCD screen, which is equipped with waveform and vectorscope display functions. For use in the field, the recorder can be powered using an included 5800mAh battery pack, which provides approximately 180 minutes of continuous playback time.With the AVC-Ultra codec family, you can select the image quality and bit-rate to match the application at hand.

You can also simultaneously record AVC-Proxy files along with your higher quality files, for low bit-rate proxies and easier web upload, or efficient offline editing.
