Chapter 1 General
The AJ-HDX400E is a video camera recorder that integrates a 3-CCD camera unit featuring a 2/3-inch on-chip lens that supports
progressive drive with a VTR unit that in turn supports the DVCPRO HD EX format.
One special feature of the camera unit is its ability to consistently express images with a high quality and high sensitivity since it
employs progressive drive.
The unit is both compact and lightweight, and it has a minimal power consumption. It features a high picture quality and
sensitivity, it has excellent mobility, and it effectively withstands dust, humidity and moisture. With all these features
incorporated, it can be used even for electronic news gathering activities.
Both the camera and VTR units employ digital signal processing technology to achieve even higher levels of picture quality and
stability and also to produce a system that enables the data to be controlled on the setup card.
1-1 Features of the camera unit
≥E-cinema camera unit featured
This video camera recorder features the Varicam (AJHDC27F) camera unit that was developed for E-cinema
uses. This camera maximally exploits the excellence of
progressive scanning and, in delivering signals to the VTR
unit, it cross-converts the signals into the 1080i system
using a newly developed LSI chip.
≥ Progressive drive
The unit is a switchable progressive and interlaced
standards (1080/25P and 1080/50i) enable reader.
While progressive drive is used, the signals transferred to
and from the unit ae converted into interlace signais
(25PsF).
≥ Storage type high-sensitivity function
The unit comes with a storage type gain increase function.
This is a function that makes it possible to achieve a higher
sensitivity of up to 20 dB above the regular gain increase.
≥ Data control function
When the unit is used on its own, one set of user data and
four sets of scene file data can be registered. Further, by
using an SD card or a Multimedia Card (optional accessory)
as the setup card, up to eight sets of setup data can be
stored.
<Note>
SD card and MultiMedia card used in this unit do not
comply with the SD standard. Do not use cards formatted
using this unit with other camera-recorders. Further, NTFS
and FAT32 formatted cards cannot be used with this unit.
The recommended size for SD cards is 8 MB or more and 4
MB or more for MultiMedia cards.
≥ MARKER SELECT button
At the front of the unit is a button for checking the
information concerning the markers on the viewfinder
screen. This is useful for checking the picture angle, for
instance, during shooting.
≥ Digital zoom function
The unit is equipped with a digital zoom employing function.
This function is particularly useful when zooming further in
on a subject.
≥ 12-bit A/D conversion digital signal processing
circuitry
The analog images are processed into digital data by a 12bit A/D converter with sampling frequencies of 74 MHz, and
by operating the signal processor using the 74 MHz
frequency, it is possible to reproduce images which are
more finely detailed and achieve improvements in stability
and reliability.
≥ 12-axis independent color correction function
Serving as a paint function, this facility enables the colors
for 12 axes to be compensated for independently and is
very useful for creating finely detailed images.
6
≥ ECU supported
The unit supports the AJ-EC3E extension control unit.
≥ Single-action shoulder pad slide function
It is now possible to adjust the position where the unit is
optimally balanced for operation using a single-touch action.
This means that the operator can easily optimize the unit’s
balance when the lens, battery and other peripheral camera
devices have been installed on the unit.
01.AJ-HDX400E(VQT0P57)E 05.1.20 15:50 ページ7
Chapter 1 General
1-2 Features of the VTR unit
≥DVCPRO HD EX format system supported
The VTR unit employs the DVCPRO HD EX recording
format that supports the 1080i/25PsF,50i HD system. Using
the latest compression technology, it achieves two times the
economy of conventional DVCPRO HD format.
≥ Power-saving management function
In order to reduce its power consumption efficiently, the unit
has a function that shuts down circuitry that is not required
for the particular VTR mode established at the time. This
enables the user to perform operations while conserving
power.
1
≥ UniSlot wireless receiver
The unit’s construction supports a slot-in wireless receiver
which is available as an optional accessory.
≥ Built-in DOLBY NR system
The CUE audio recording circuitry contains a Dolby B noise
reduction circuit.
≥Dolby noise reduction manufactured under license
from Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation.
≥“DOLBY” and the double-D symbol Î are trademarks
of Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation.
≥ Pre-recording function featured
This function makes it possible to record the pictures and
sound up to 10 seconds ahead of the point in time when
recording is commenced by pressing the REC START
button or VTR button on the lens. It is effective in
preventing shots from being missed.
≥ Interval REC function provided
This unit is capable of interval shooting.
This unit makes it possible to conduct recording in intervals
with a minimum recording time in increments of one frame.
This is particularly useful for shooting science and nature
programs.
Furthermore, when the unit is used for one-shot recording,
frame-by-frame shooting is easily accomplished.
≥ Frame-to-frame continuity
Simply by pressing the REC START button or VTR button
on the lens, the continuity from one frame to the next is
assured with a precision of +1 frame or less.
≥ Rec-review function
This automatically rewinds the tape for the last 2 to 10
seconds recorded and plays back the recording. This
enables the recording to be monitored easily.
≥ Built-in time code generator/reader
This enables the time code information to be recorded on
the dedicated sub-code track and played back.
≥ RETAKE function
This function is for not leaving behind superfluous cuts
when a cut turns out to be no good during the shooting of
news, reports or art programmes. By cutting down on the
time taken for copying onto the work tape, for instance, this
function is very effective in achieving economical operation.
Users should remember to handle this function very
carefully.
≥ Metadata supported
The unit allows information from the AJ-GPS900G GPS unit
to be recorded on tape as the metadata UMID information.
This is useful when it comes to managing on-tape
information.
≥SD down-converter output supported
This unit makes it possible to output SD down-converter
signals from its VIDEO OUT connector.
≥ Input signals of 4 separate audio channels
supported
The unit enables the audio input signals in four channels to
be selected separately. Further, the level of the signal in
each channel can be monitored on the LCD display window.
≥ Front audio level control
The unit’s front panel is equipped with a control for adjusting
the audio recording level. This is useful when the user is
filming on his or her own and the audio level needs to be
adjusted. It also is possible to cancel the effect of this control.

3-3 Scene-to-scene continuity
3-4 PRE-RECORDING function
Maintaining continuity from one scene to the next at an
accuracy of +1 frame or less can be assured simply by
pressing the REC START button or VTR button on the lens
while the unit is in the rec-pause mode.
If the unit is in a mode other than rec-pause, the point at
which the scene-to-scene continuity is to be maintained must
be located before recording is started.
By always storing a few seconds’ worth (maximum of 10
seconds) of audio and video data shot by the camera, it is
possible to record video and audio signals a number of
seconds before recording is actually started by pressing the
REC START button or the VTR button on the lens.
In order for this function to be used, it is necessary to open
the <REC FUNCTION> screen from the SYSTEM SETTING
page and set the data storage time in the memory using the
PRE REC MODE item by performing menu operations.
The PRE REC MODE item settings are described below.
Scene-to-scene continuity during rec-pause
The scene-to-scene continuity timing is located automatically.
However, the time taken until the start of recording differs
depending on the setting of the VTR SAVE/STBY switch.
≥ When the VTR SAVE/STBY switch is set to SAVE,
recording commences about two seconds after the REC
START button is pressed.
≥ When the VTR SAVE/STBY switch is set to STBY,
recording commences as soon as the REC START button
is pressed.

<Notes>
≥ The data contained in the storage memory becomes
unstable immediately after the power is turned on,
immediately after the PRE REC MODE item setting is
selected or its set time has been changed, and immediately
after playback or rec-review has been performed.
Immediately after any of these operations, therefore, the
video and audio signals will not be pre-recorded for the
duration set when recording is started by pressing the REC
START button or VTR button on the lens.
≥ The video data and audio data are not stored in the storage
memory while playback or rec-review is being performed.
This means that the pre-recording will not include the video
and audio signals supplied during a playback or rec-review
operation.
≥ Bear in mind that when the ZOOM UP function is activated
during the time set for pre-recording as a focus assist
function in the progressive mode, the zoomed-in image will
remain in the memory and end up being recorded on the
tape.
≥ When recording has been started, the time code (TCG)
display may remain in the hold status until it is possible for
the time code (TCR) on the tape to be read.

3-5 INTERVAL REC function
When recording is to be suspended at any time
This unit enables recording in intervals with a minimum
recording time in increments of one frame to be conducted.
In order for this function to be used, it is necessary by
performing menu operations to open the <REC FUNCTION>
screen from the SYSTEM SETTING page, select the interval
recording mode using the INTERVAL REC MODE item, and
set the recording time (REC TIME), interval pause time
(PAUSE TIME) and time required for shooting (TOTAL TAKE
TIME). Upon completion of the settings, the total shooting
time (TOTAL REC TIME) is automatically calculated and
displayed.
The INTERVAL REC MODE item settings are described below.
Press the STOP button. Recording is now suspended.
O The tape may continue to run since the unit will record the
images stored in the memory until the moment when the
button is pressed.
When the recording is to be continued
Press the unit’s REC START button or VTR button on the lens
once more. Interval recording is now started again.
When the INTERVAL REC mode is to be exited
OFF: Interval recording is not performed.
ON: Interval recording is performed.
ONE SHOT:
One-shot interval recording is performed for the time which
was selected by the REC TIME setting.
There are two ways to do this.
1) Set the unit’s POWER switch to OFF.
2) Perform a menu operation and select OFF as the
INTERVAL REC MODE item setting.
Procedure for shooting in the ON modes of
INTERVAL REC

soon as recording starts, “iREC” lights. During rec-pause,
“iREC” flashes. Exactly what mode is established in the
unit can be ascertained by observing these displays.
The same displays as the ones in the display window also
appear inside the viewfinder, and the TALLY lamp lights
while recording is underway. Further, when the pause time
has been set to 2 minutes or more, the tally lamp blinks at 5
second intervals to inform the operator. Further, when
pause time has been set to 2 minutes or more, the tally lamp
blinks at 5 second intervals to indicate when recording is
paused. Under these conditions, the tally lamp will also flash
3 seconds before recording starts.

Chapter 3 Recording and playback
When the recording is to be continued
Press the unit’s REC START button or VTR button on the lens
once more. One-shot recording is now started again.
When the ONE SHOT mode of INTERVAL REC is to
be exited
There are two ways to do this.
1) Set the unit’s POWER switch to OFF.
2) Perform a menu operation and select OFF as the
INTERVAL REC MODE item setting.
Checkpoints common to all INTERVAL REC modes
≥ Sound-related
Whether the sound is to be recorded or not during interval
recording is set by setting ON or OFF for the AUDIO REC
item on the <REC FUNCTION> screen.
≥ Tape function button-related
During interval recording, all the tape function buttons
(EJECT, REW, FF and PLAY/STILL) except STOP do not
work.
≥ The PRE RECORDING function does not work in the
INTERVAL REC mode.
≥ Starting recording quickly when unit is in pause mode
Selecting REC as the setting for one of either USER MAIN
or USER1/USER2 buttons in advance enables quick start
recording during pause mode when the set button is
pressed. Measurement of pause mode time is continued
even after quick start recording.
≥ When the unit’s power was turned off during recording
If the unit’s POWER switch was set to the OFF position
during interval recording with the use of the memory, the
tape will continue to run in order to record the video signals
which were stored in the memory until the moment when
the POWER switch was set to OFF, and then the power will
automatically go off.
If the battery was removed, the DC cable was disconnected
or the power supplied through the AC adapter was cut off
during recording, those shots (up to 5 seconds) taken prior
to the moment concerned may not be recorded. Bear this
in mind when the battery is to be replaced.
≥ When the tape has run out during recording
Bear in mind that if the tape has run out and stops during
interval recording with the use of the memory, those shots
(up to 5 seconds) taken prior to the moment when the tape
stopped may not be recorded.
≥ If a PLAY, FF or REW operation is performed after one-shot
recording, the operation will be performed after the images
remaining in the memory are written on the tape.
While the images are being recorded, the LED of the button
pressed (for play, FF or REW operation) will flash.
≥ Concerning the time code display
When recording has been started, the time code (TCG)
display may remain in the hold status until it is possible for
the time code (TCR) on the tape to be read.
≥ After turning the power ON, inserting a tape, or pressing
PLAY/FF/REW, the first recording made with INTERVAL
REC (including ONE SHOT mode) will be about 1 second
longer than the time set in the REC TIME menu option.
This is to guarantee the quality of consecutive recordings
and is not a defect.
3-6 RETAKE function
The RETAKE function ensures continuity with the previous cut
on the tape when shooting is resumed.
It is set by opening the <REC FUNCTION> screen from the
SYSTEM SETTING page and selecting ON as the setting for
the RETAKE MODE item by performing menu operations.
The RETAKE MODE item settings are described below.
ON: The retake operation is performed when the RET button
on the lens is pressed while the MODE CHECK button
is held down.
OFF: The RETAKE function does not operate.
If, when the rec-pause mode is established upon completion
of the recording or the stop mode is established afterwards,
the RET button on the lens is pressed while the MODE
CHECK button is held down, the tape will be rewound to the
approximate start point (a position advanced by 10 or so
frames from the recording start) of the final image that was
last recorded, and the rec-pause mode will be established.
If there is some leeway in the shooting time and a “NG”
condition has been clearly identified, recording can be started
from this point, and the cut in the NG area will be deleted.
This function is particularly useful for cutting the amount of
time taken for copying onto work tapes and other such
economical operations.

3-7 Rec-review function
When recording is temporarily stopped and the lens RET
button is pressed, the last two seconds of the tape are
automatically rewound, and the playback pictures on this part
of the tape appear on the viewfinder screen. This makes it
possible to check whether recording was performed properly.
After the two seconds of the tape have been played back, the
unit is again set to the recording start standby mode.
If the RET button is held down, a maximum of 10 seconds of
the tape is rewound and played back.
The RET button function can be allocated by opening the
<USER SW> screen from the OPERATION page and
selecting settings for the USER MAIN SW, USER1 SW and
USER2 SW items by performing menu operations.
<Notes>
≥ The rec-review function cannot be used unless recording
lasts for one or more seconds.
≥ If the OUTPUT SEL switch on the side panel is at the VTR
position during the rec-review operation, the rec-review
images are output not only to the viewfinder but to the video
output connectors (VIDEO OUT connector and HD SDI
connector) as well. Bear in mind that if back-up images are
being recorded by a backup VTR that has been connected,
these rec-review images will end up being recorded.

To cancel the setting in the course of setting the date, time
or time zone, set the TCG switch to F-RUN or R-RUN while
holding down the SHIFT button.
≥ The clock is accurate to a monthly error of approximately
+/– 30 seconds in the power OFF status. If a more accurate
time reading is required, check the time and set it again
when the power is turned on.
When the AJ-GPS900G GPS unit is installed and the time
can be received, the internal clock’s time (local date/time) is
kept accurate on the basis of the received time (world
standard time) and time zone. If the date or time display
has deviated from the local time, the time zone setting may
be off. Check the time zone setting again. (There is no
need to set the date and time again.)

Chapter 4 Adjustments and settings for recording
<Notes>
O When the external lock operation is performed, the time
code is instantly locked to the external time code, and the
same value as the external code value appears on the
counter display. Do not set the unit to the recording mode
during the few seconds it takes for the sync generator to
stabilize.
O The images may be disrupted during the instant when
external locking is performed. This happens because the
5-frame period is adjusted, and it does not mean that the
unit is malfunctioning.
4-5-5 Setting the UMID information
This unit supports metadata UMIDs. As the UMID data, the
user must first set the name of his or her country (with 3 or
fewer characters), the name of the company or organization
(with 4 or fewer characters), and the user name (with 4 or
fewer characters). Input the name of the country based on the
Country Codes (21) stipulated under the ISO 3166 standard.
Given here as an example is the procedure for inputting the
user name.
21 Examples:
CHN for China, USA for United States, CAN for Canada, and JPN for Japan
Concerning the user bit setting during external lock
When the unit’s time code is externally locked, only the time
data is locked to the time data of the time code supplied from
the external source. This means that the user bits can be set
separately for each component.
When the <TC/UB> screen is opened from the VTR menu
page and EXT is selected as the UB MODE item setting by
performing menu operations, the user bits can also be locked
to the user bits of the time code supplied from the external
source.

MIX function on the <USER SW> screen.
For instance, if the S.GAIN, DS.GAIN and LINE MIX GAIN
functions have been allocated to the USER MAIN button,
USER1 button or USER2 button, the gain can be increased
by using these buttons in combination with the USER buttons.
1) To increase the gain without increasing the perceptible
noise
Combine the DS.GAIN or LINE MIX GAIN function with the
L/M/H gain.
2) To increase the normal analog gain (in which case, the
amount of noise will increase)
Use only the S.GAIN function.
<Note>
Since the amount of noise will increase when the gain is
increased in this way, bear in mind that the AUTO IRIS
accuracy will be adversely affected.
3) To use the unit in the ultra-high-sensitivity mode
Use the S.GAIN function and DS.GAIN or LINE MIX GAIN
function in combination. However, exercise care during
operation since image lag will become more conspicuous
with moving subjects the more the gain is increased by
using the DS.GAIN function.
When shooting moving subjects, keep the gain increase
with the LINE MIX GAIN function or DS.GAIN function to
under +12 dB.

Before inserting the setup card, check that it is pointed in the
correct direction. If the card meets with resistance and if it is
difficult to insert, it may mean that it is the wrong way round or
upside down. Do not force the card into the slot but check its
direction again and insert it properly.
Removing the setup card
Open the switch cover, check that the BUSY lamp is not
lighted, and push the setup card further into the unit. This
causes the card to partially pop out from the insertion slot.
Take hold of the card, remove it, and close the switch cover.
Bear in mind the following points when using and
saving the setup cards.
≥ Avoid high temperatures and high humidity levels.
≥ Keep the cards away from water.
≥ Avoid exposing the cards to electrical charges.
Keep the setup card inside the unit with the cover closed.

6-2 Maintenance
6-2-5 Replacing the backup battery
6-2-1 Condensation
The backup battery is already installed when the unit is
shipped.
When it has discharged, the “BACK UP BATT EMPTY”
display appears for 3 seconds on the viewfinder screen when
the POWER switch is set to ON.
Moreover, the time code value of the TCG will be set to
“00:00:00:00” and the backup of the time code value will no
longer be possible: this means that the backup battery should
be replaced.
Consult with your nearest service center, and replace the
spent battery with a new battery (CR2032).
The water vapor in the air may form as tiny droplets on the
head drum when the unit is moved from a cold location to a
warm location or used in a very humid place. This
phenomenon is known as condensation, and running the tape
under these conditions is liable to cause the tape to stick to
the drum.
Note the following points:
≥ Remove the tape when the unit’s operation is to be started
in conditions where condensation may form.
≥ Before loading the tape, set the power switch to ON, and
check that the HUMID display is not lighted in the display
window.
<Note>
For safety reasons, the HUMID display will flash and the drum
will rotate for 80 minutes after condensation detection is
released.
During this time, the operation buttons cannot be operated.
6-2-2 Head cleaning
Use the AJ-CL12MP cleaning cassette if the heads need to
be cleaned. Take care to read the instructions accompanying
the cleaning tape since the video heads may be damaged if
the tape is not used in the correct way.
6-2-3 Cleaning inside the viewfinder
≥ Do not use thinners or any other solvent to remove dirt.
≥ Use a lens cleaner available on the market to wipe the lens.
≥ NEVER wipe the mirror.
If dirt or dust has found its way onto the mirror, remove it
using an air blower at retail outlets.
6-2-4 Phenomena inherent to CCD cameras
Smear
This phenomenon may occur when very bright subjects are
shot.
The faster the electronic shutter speed, the more likely it is
that it will occur.
72
Backup battery
CAUTION:
These servicing instructions are for use by qualified service
personnel only. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not
perform any servicing other than that contained in the
operating instructions unless you are qualified to do so.

In the case of a digital battery (DIGITAL14, DIGITAL13, NPL50D, DIONIC or ENDURA-D), the remaining battery charge
displayed in the viewfinder appears as a percentage.
What is displayed to warn the user that the end of the
remaining battery charge is approaching is determined by the
setting on the <BATTERY SETTING> screen regardless of
the percentage display.
Select the ENDURA50 or ENDURA80 item if the V-mount adapter plate is
to be installed and the ENDURA battery is to be used while the battery
holder made by Anton Bauer remains in place.
Select ENDURA-D if the battery holder is to be changed to the IDX made
battery holder, and ENDURA80 is to be used instead. It is then possible to
display the percentage of the remaining charge of the ENDURA80 battery.
