Playlist Editing with Proxy Video

The AG-SFU604G software expansion allows playlist editing via a device such as PC, Mac or Tablet connected to a wired or wireless network. This greatly increases the efficiency and speed of workflow by making it possible to handle preliminary editing with only the camera and connected device, and then transfer the data wherever it is needed. The playlist can be saved for later use, playlist viewing by playing out of the SDI output, as well as creating an edited copy can all be achieved through web apps.

High-Resolution Proxy Video

With the AG-YDX600G Video Encoder Board, the AG-HPX600 records proxy files onto SD/SDHC memory cards or onto P2 cards. It supports high-quality video (Quick Time/H.264) and audio formats at a low bit rate. High-quality proxy file can be used for breaking news and other scenarios that would benefit from proxy workflows. Moreover, it streamlines the production workflow by allowing the editor to review the content details during offline editing.

Streaming with a Wireless or Wired LAN

The AG-SFU601G software expansion and AJ-WM30 Wireless Module enable wireless or wired (Ethernet) LAN. Proxy files can be streamed or viewed via a standard web browser on a PC/Mac, tablet, or Smartphone. While viewing the streamed files, metadata can be added to the P2 files. Using a PC/Mac also enables a cloud-based workflow by uploading and sharing video data via network.
