AJ-PD500
Memory Card Recorder
AVC-ULTRA*1 Support for Everything from
Mastering-Level Image Quality to Low-Bit-Rate Transmission,
Together with Network Solutions and New Compact microP2 Cards.
A Half-Rack Size Recorder for a High-Quality, Cost-Effective Workflow.
This P2HD recorder supports today's network-based workflow while interfacing with conventional broadcast
systems. In addition to conventional P2 card slots, the AJ-PD500 offers microP2 card slots, which dramatically
reduce media costs.
AVC-ULTRA*1 codecs let you choose the quality and bit rate that suit your application from AVC-Intra200, which
produces images that approach the level of uncompressed master quality; the popular AVC-Intra100/50;
AVC-LongG50/25, with low-bit-rate operation and Full-HD 1920 × 1080, 4:2:2, 10 bit image quality; and
AVC-LongG12, with 8 bit, 4:2:0 images and extended recording time. Lower-rate AVC-Proxy recording enables
previewing, metadata input, and playlist editing over a network. In addition to handling DVCPRO HD/DVCPRO50/
DVCPRO/DV codec recording and AVCHD playback.*2
The 3U half-rack size unit houses a wide range of interfaces, including Gbit Ethernet LAN, USB 3.0 (HOST),
parallel remote, and RS-422A, while easy use is assured by JOG/SHTL/MENU dial operation. AC/DC power
operation enables versatility — from outdoor use to mounting in an OB van or studio installation — for a wide
range of broadcast applications.
*1:AVC-ULTRA is the name of Panasonic's professional video codec family. The AJ-PD500 does not support all of the formats included in the AVC-ULTRA family.
*2:Requires the optional AJ-YCX500G AVCHD Codec Board.

AVC-ULTRA Includes High-Quality AVC-Intra200 Codec
Standard-Equipped microP2 Card Slots
From mastering to streaming, the
image quality and bit rate can be
selected to match the application.
Panasonic's professional A/V codec
family, AVC-ULTRA, is provided as
standard equipment for the first
time ever, to meet the particular
needs of broadcasting and image
production.
The AJ-PD500 is equipped with
two slots for the microP2 card, the
new broadcast-use memory card
downsized to match the size of a
conventional SD memory card.
• microP2 card: While inheriting
the high reliability of the P2 card
and maintaining the large
capacity of 64 GB,*1 the microP2
card was greatly downsized to
match the size of an SD memory
card, thus resulting in a
considerable reduction in cost.
• Content Protection System
(CPS): A new security function
featured on the microP2 card.
The content recorded on the card
is locked with a password to
protect against unauthorized access. This prevents data from being stolen
and enables secure media control.
• P2 Card Slots: Two conventional P2 card slots can be used.*2
• Highly Mobile and Reliable: The microP2 and P2 cards are highly
resistant to temperature changes, dust, impacts, and vibration, and there
are no worries about condensation, head clogging, or dropout as there are
with VTR systems. Data is recorded onto empty card spaces, so there is no
need to search for the beginning and ending of recorded portions. There is
also no danger of mistakenly recording over existing data.
AVC-ULTRA Codec LSI
An intra-frame compression method that is highly
suited to image production. In addition to the conventional
AVC-Intra100/50 codec, the AJ-PD500 features the AVC-Intra200 codec
with twice the bit rate (10 bit quantization, 4:2:2 sampling, and a bit rate
of approximately 200 Mbps*1). With superb images that approach
uncompressed quality and 24 bit audio, it offers a level of quality that
meets the needs of mastering and archiving.
An inter-frame compression method that achieves
high-quality HD recording at a low bit rate. Ideal for providing on-air
content direct from the shooting location and for workflows using content
transferred over the internet. Three bit rates are available:
AVC-LongG50/25/12 Mbps. AVC-LongG25 provides 10 bit/4:2:2 quality at a
bit rate of approximately 25 Mbps.
Low-bit-rate, high-resolution, highsound-quality proxy video (Quick Time/H.264) is also recorded
with the actual data.*2 Also includes metadata for efficient
offline editing. See the table (AVC-Proxy Recording Modes and
Recording Signals) on Page 5.
*1: Total card capacity includes space for data management, such as system data; therefore, the actual
usable area is less than the capacity indicated on the card. See the "Recording Times" table on Page 5 for
recording times.
*2:The microP2 card and P2 card cannot be used simultaneously.
*1: For 1080/59.94i. *2: Proxy data cannot be recorded when using AVC-Intra200, Loop Rec, Simul Rec,
480/59.94i and 576/50i. Proxy data refers to file-based data of low-bit-rate motion images and audio
together with management data, such as a time code and metadata.

Network Solutions
The low-rate AVC-Proxy including AVC-LongG6 codecs are well suited to
high-speed workflows using a LAN or the internet. Their image and sound
quality is high enough for use as a direct broadcast source for breaking
news over the internet. They also allow images to be clearly confirmed for
offline editing, to greatly streamline the workflow. The AJ-PD500 features
a Gbit Ethernet LAN terminal, FTP client function, and FTP/Samba server
function for file transfers over a LAN or the internet.* An HTTP server
function can also be accessed from a web browser to provide the
following solutions.
• Proxy Preview: AJ-PD500 clips can be displayed as thumbnail images on
a PC or Mac for previewing and streaming proxy images.
• Metadata Editing: The metadata on AJ-PD500 clips can be searched and
edited (or input) on a PC or Mac. The actual data and proxy data both
share the metadata, so the edited results can also be reflected in the
actual data.
• Playlist Editing: Playlists can be edited and saved. They can also be
played, SDI output, and copied using a web application. After editing the
playlist on location or over the internet, proxy-image news flashes can be
transmitted from the playlist. Then, the actual data can be FTP transferred
or carried to the studio, and the previously sent playlist can be used for SDI
output of program footage. Maximizing network functions helps to
streamline and speed-up the workflow.
*Samba server function supports download only.

Notes Regarding the Handling of P2 Files Using a PC
Mounting and Transferring Files
The PC must be installed with the included P2 driver in order to recognize, copy and transfer P2 files. This driver is also necessary when using the PC card slot and when handling P2 files
stored on a hard-disk device, such as P2 store. For other operating requirements, refer to the P2 installation manual. The P2 driver and the P2 installation manual can be downloaded free from a
Panasonic website. Visit <http://pro-av.panasonic.net/en/download/>
Preview and Nonlinear Editing
To preview (play) P2 files on a PC, it is necessary to install P2 Viewer Plus software (downloadable for free, for Windows and Mac), both from Panasonic, or P2-compatible editing software available
from other companies (for details, visit http://pro-av.panasonic.net/en/sales_o/p2/partners.html). Note that each software places specific requirements on the operating environment, and the
operating environment must meet additional requirements to play and edit HD content on Windows PCs and Macs. For P2 Viewer Plus download and operating requirement information,
visit <http://pro-av.panasonic.net/en/download/>. For operating requirements and details of other P2 editing software, visit the website of the relevant software manufacturer.
