Playback Chart

Data can be automatically recorded by connecting to the AJ-HDC27F via HD-SDI, and clip files of cuts that you designate by linking to the camera's REC/STOP control can be stored to an HDD for backup. These functions are also supported during studio editing, and the resulting tapes can be played on a DVCPRO HD VTR, making it possible to automatically create a clip of each cut by simple frame rate converter recording. Management of OK/NG cuts is fast and easy.

Auto REC Function

During playback, a pre-roll image of up to 10 seconds in length can be automatically inserted and output with a continuous time code. This helps to speed up shooting by letting you use the leading/trailing parts of each cut as editing material, something that was difficult to do in conventional HD cinema production.
