The Panasonic Memory Card Portable Recorder features dual SD card slots and offers an SDI input and multiple outputs, allowing for versatile operation in a compact form factor in broadcasting, live streaming, video production, and more. The slots function consecutively and allow for hot swapping, recording up to 22 hours in AVCHD PS mode and 112 hours in HE mode.

Record a camera or recorder signal over 3G/HD-SDI in up to 1080p59.94, as well as separate audio over a switchable mic/line input, and output to displays simultaneously over SDI and HDMI, and to mass storage over USB 2.0. You can also connect an additional Panasonic Compact Camera Head via a dedicated interface. This optional camera head records up to UHD 4K at 29.97 fps, and the HDMI output supports UHD playback from this camera. Furthermore, connect IP controllers, PCs, tablets, streaming decoders, and FTP servers over LAN, and zoom, start/stop, focus, and iris remote controllers over 2.5mm and 3.5mm mini jacks. IP streaming over LAN can be performed at the same time with SDI and HDMI outputs, so you output three signals simultaneously.

The recorder can run off the included AC adapter, and can also support up to 11,800mAh batteries (not included; see Supported Batteries below). Monitor everything on a 3.5" touch-panel display, and operate the recorder with onboard function buttons—you can also temporarily disable the buttons for precaution. You can monitor audio via a built-in speaker or headphone output. The recorder can also be arm or rack-mounted via threaded sockets provided in two locations (on the left and right).

  • IP control: Remote control from a PC, tablet, or IP controller enables record start/stop, clip delete, and Compact Camera Head control (zoom, focus, iris, and menu settings)
  • IP streaming: Video and audio IP streaming supported; signals can be received and monitored by PCs, tablets, and IP decoders
  • File transfer: Recorded clips can be downloaded by a network PCF

  • Time stamp: Date and time information can be superimposed onto images (ideal for extended research activities and nature observations)
