taken with the apparatus being affected and with its operating environment:
1. Place the apparatus at a distance from the source of the interference.
2. Change the direction of the apparatus.
3. Change the connection method used for the apparatus.
4. Connect the apparatus to another power outlet where the power is not shared by any
other appliances.
Operating precautions
When using the unit in rainy or snowy weather,
at the beach or other locations, take care to
protect it from precipitation and sea water.
• Otherwise, trouble may occur in the unit and
its cards. (It may not be possible to restore the
original functions)
Keep the unit away from appliances (such
as TV sets and TV game machines) which
generate magnetic fields.
• When the unit is used on top of or near a TV set,
the images and sound may be distorted by the
electromagnetic waves emanating from the TV
set.
• Strong magnetic fields generated by speakers
or large motors may damage the recordings or
distort the images.
• The electromagnetic waves emanating from
microprocessors may adversely affect the unit
and distort the images and sound.
• If the unit is adversely affected by an appliance
that generates magnetic fields and fails to
operate properly as a result, turn off its power,
and either remove its battery or unplug the AC
adapter from the power outlet. Then install the
battery again or re-connect the AC adapter. After
doing this, turn the unit’s power back on.
Do not use the unit near a radio transmitter or
high-voltage appliance.
• Doing so may adversely affect the recorded
images and sound.
When using the unit at the beach or similar
locations, take care to protect it from sand and
dust.
• Sand and dust may damage the unit and its
cards. (Take particular care when inserting or
ejecting the cards)
AC adapter and battery
• When the battery temperature is extremely high
or extremely low or when the battery has not
been used for a prolonged period and been left
discharged, the [CHARGE] lamp will blink several
times, and charging will start automatically.
• If the [CHARGE] lamp continues blinking even
when the battery temperature is normal, this may
be a sign of trouble in the battery or AC adapter.
Consult with your dealer.
• When the battery is warm, it will take longer than
usual to recharge it.
• When the AC adapter is used near a radio, the
sound from the radio may be distorted. Use the
AC adapter and radio at a distance of at least 1
meter from each other.
• Noise is output while the AC adapter is being
used, but this is not a sign of trouble.
When carrying the unit around, take care not
to drop it.
• Strong impacts may damage the unit’s body,
preventing it from operating properly.
Do not expose the unit to insecticides or
volatile sprays or liquids.
• These substances may deform the unit’s body or
cause its paint to peel off.
• Do not bring the unit into contact with products
made of rubber or vinyl for prolonged periods of
time.
Characteristics of the battery
A rechargeable lithium-ion battery is used in this
unit. Electrical energy is generated by the chemical
reactions taking place inside it. These reactions
are susceptible to the effects of the ambient
temperature and humidity, and the higher or the
lower the temperature, the quicker the battery
charge will be used up. When the battery is used
where the temperature is extremely low, it may last
only 5 minutes or so even if the battery has been
fully charged.
When the battery reaches an extremely high
temperature, its protection function is activated,
making it impossible for the battery to be used for
a while.
After using the unit, always remember to
remove the battery.
Be sure to remove the battery from the unit. (If it
is left in place, a very faint current will continue to
flow even when the unit’s power has been turned
off) If the battery is left in place for a prolonged
period, it may discharge excessively so that it
cannot be used again even when it is charged at a
later time.
Protect the battery terminals.
Keep the battery terminals free from dust and
foreign matter.
If the battery has been inadvertently dropped,
check whether its body and terminal area have
been deformed.
Installing a deformed battery in the unit or in the
AC adapter may damage the unit or AC adapter.
Precautions when P2 cards and SD cards are to
be destroyed or given to other parties
The formatting and deletion functions provided by
the unit and personal computers serve merely to
change the file management information: they will
not completely erase all the data on the card.
When a card is to be destroyed or given to
another party, it is recommended that you destroy
the actual card physically or use a data deletion
software program for use with personal computers
available on the market to completely erase all the
data on the card.
You, the user, are responsible for managing the
data on your cards.
Liquid crystal display
• When the same image or characters are left
displayed on the LCD monitor for a prolonged
period, they may become burned into the screen.
However, the original condition of the screen will
be restored after the power has been kept off for
several hours.
• The liquid crystal part of the monitor has been
fabricated using high-precision technology. The
number of its effective pixels is more than 99.99
%, but this still leaves less than 0.01 % of its
pixels which may be missing or permanently
lighted. This is not a sign of trouble and will have
absolutely no effect on the images which have
been recorded.
• The surface of the liquid crystal display may be
marked or scratched if it is wiped or rubbed firmly
with a rough cloth.
• The response speed and brightness of the liquid
crystal change depending on the temperature at
which the display is used.
• Condensation may form on the liquid crystal part
of the monitor if the unit is placed in a location
where there is a significant difference in the
temperature levels. If this happens, wipe off the
condensation with a soft dry cloth.
• If the unit becomes very cold, the LCD monitor
screen will be darker than usual immediately
after the power has been turned on. When the
temperature inside the unit rises, the normal
brightness will be restored.

Recording (continued)
• By making HD-SDI/1394 connection to a camera recorder equipped with an external device control
function, the unit can be made to start recording, pause recording, etc. by the camera recorder. For
details on devices compatible with HD-SDI connection and settings on this unit, refer to “AUTO REC” on
the setting menu “RECORDING SETUP” (Page 91).
Also, refer to the operating instructions of the camera recorder.
• Recording is not available in PC mode (Page 25).
• The unit does not support native recordings.
• Before recording, check that video signals are being input.
• If the input signal format changes during recording, recording does not proceed properly.
• Do not stop the signal output at the external device or disconnect the device’s cable during recording.
Otherwise, the device may not recognize signals when recording is undertaken again.
• Do not start recording in the condition that invalid signals or continuously distorted signals are input. The
device may not operate normally.
• When time information data identification code (DBB1) in SLTC or SVITC superimposed onto SDI input
signals is lost or ON/OFF is switched during EE/recording, the images may be distorted at those timings.
(When SDI is set on the setting menu “INPUT SELECT” (Page 90))
The followings are restrictions when 1394 input is selected.
• No signals are recorded if the same video signals as those for recording format are not input.
• Recording in AVC-Intra100 and AVC-Intra50 formats is not possible.
• Recording sound is 4ch for DVCPRO HD input (Page 118).
2-slot continuous recording
If P2 cards have been inserted into both of the P2 card slots, you can continuously record images first
on one card and then on the other. While images are being recorded on one card, you can replace the
other card with a fresh card and in this way record continuously onto 3 or more cards. (This is called hot
swap recording.) However, the fresh P2 card may not be recognized when it is inserted into the empty
slot at certain timings (Before and after when recording continuously from one slot to the other). It is
recommended that you insert a fresh P2 card while the card on which images are being recorded still has
at least one minute of remaining memory.
When “SLOT SEL” is assigned to [USER] for the USER1-3 items (Page 97) on the setting menu “SW
MODE”, you can change the slot targeted for recording at the touch of a button.

Updating the drivers installed in the unit
The driver can be updated using either of the following two methods.
1.Checking the current version of the driver and performing the update using the dedicated tool
(P2_Status_Logger)
PASS (P2 Asset Support System) is only available to customers who have completed customer
registration with Panasonic.
Log in to PASS and use the dedicated tool (P2_Status_Logger) to check the version information of the
driver on the unit and download links to pages containing the necessary drivers.
For further information about downloading and using P2_Status_Logger, log in to PASS and refer to the
relevant pages.
Besides access to PASS, completing customer registration has a number of other benefits. For further
details, refer to the PASS (P2 Asset Support System) website (http://panasonic.biz/sav/pass_e/).
2. Checking the current version of the driver using the unit and performing the update
From the MAINTENANCE menu page, check the current version of the driver on the unit using the
setting menu “DIAGNOSTIC”–“VERSION”. Then, access the website listed below for the latest driverrelated information and download the driver as required.
■ Notes
• The update is completed by loading the downloaded file onto the unit via an SD card. For further details
about the updating methods, refer to the following website.
https://eww.pavc.panasonic.co.jp/pro-av/
• Be sure to use a compatible SD card. The unit is compatible with SD cards based on the SD and SDHC
standards. Also, be sure to format the memory card using the unit before use.
Maintenance
Do not use benzine or paint thinners to clean the unit.
• Doing so may deform the unit or cause its paint to peel off.
• Before cleaning the unit, remove the battery or unplug the AC cord from the power outlet.
• Wipe the unit with a clean soft cloth. To remove stubborn dirt, dip a cloth into some kitchen detergent
which has been diluted with water, wring it out and wipe off the dirt, and then use a dry cloth to take up
any remaining moisture.
When condensation forms on or inside the unit, the principle behind its formation is the same as when
droplets of water form on the window panes of a heated room. It forms when the unit and its cards are
brought into a space with significantly different temperature and humidity levels, specifically when:
• They have been brought to a very humid location full of steam or to a room immediately after the heating
has been turned on.
• They have suddenly been brought from an air-conditioned place to a location with high temperature and
humidity levels.
If the unit and its cards are brought to such locations, do not turn on the unit’s power but leave the unit and
cards standing for about 10 minutes.

Storage precautions
Before storing the unit, remove its battery.
Select a location with minimal moisture and a
relatively constant temperature to store the unit.
[Recommended ambient temperature: 15 °C to 25 °C
(59 °F to 77 °F)]
[Recommended relative humidity: 40 % to 60 %]
Unit
• Wrap the unit in a soft cloth to protect it from dust
and dirt.
• Avoid places exposed to the direct sunlight to
keep this unit as the exterior parts and LCD
screen may be damaged.
Battery
• The service life of the battery will be shortened
if the battery is kept where the temperature is
extremely high or extremely low.
• Storing the unit in a location with high
concentrations of oily smoke or dust may cause
the connectors to become corroded and other
trouble to occur.
• Ensure that the battery terminals are not
brought into contact with any metal objects
(such as necklaces or hairpins). Otherwise,
the terminals may be shorted and generate
heat which could cause burns if touched.
• When the battery is to be stored for a prolonged
period, it is recommended that you charge it once
a year, use the battery in the unit until its charge
is used up, and then return it to storage.
114
P2 card, SD card
• After removing the P2 cards from the unit, always
remember to cover their terminals with the
dedicated caps to keep sand and dust away from
the connector areas. Keep the P2 cards in their
protective cases when storing them or carrying
them around.
• After removing the SD cards from the unit,
always remember to put them in their protective
cases.
• Do not store the cards wherever there are
corrosive gases in the atmosphere.
• Do not leave the cards inside vehicles or in
places exposed to direct sunlight or where the
temperature will be high.
• Do not leave the cards in places where the
humidity level is high or where there is a great
deal of dust.
Handling the data recorded on P2 cards
“P2 cards” are semiconductor memory cards which have been adopted as the recording media for the
“DVCPRO P2 series” of professional-use video production and broadcast equipment.
The data recorded on the P2 card (P2 data) is
in a file format which is highly compatible with
personal computers. The data file structure
has its own format, the files contain not only
the video and audio data which are converted
into MXF files but various other important
information, and the data is associated in the
folder configuration shown on the right.
Changing or deleting some of this
information may result in trouble: for
instance, it may make it impossible for the
data to be recognized as P2 data or for the
cards to be used in P2 devices.
