The 2/3" VariCam HS camera/recorder produces extraordinary 1080p image quality at up to 240fps for the most demanding documentary, sports or SFX slow-motion applications.
The VariCam HS system includes the AU-V23HS1G 2/3 type HD camera head, the AU-VREC1G recording module, AU-VCVF1G OLED viewfinder, and the AU-VSHL1G shoulder pad/tripod mount.
The VariCam HS utilizes three newly-developed, 1920 x 1080p MOS imagers with 14 stops of latitude, providing full control over a wide range of lighting conditions for unparalleled 1080p native recording/operation. The camera/recorder incorporates a classical RGB imager/prism system that provides equi-band full resolution color processing for critical applications.
The VariCam HS offers a choice of codecs: the well-established Apple* ProRes 4444 and ProRes 422and Panasonic's AVC-ULTRA family of advanced video codecs. It features a range of high-quality recording formats including AVC-Intra Class100 (recording as 1080/24p, 25, 30p, 50 or 60p with VFR up to 240p), AVC-Intra Class200*** (up to 30p/60i) and 12 bit sampled AVC-Intra Class4:4:4 (up to 30p). Both AVC-Intra Class200 and AVC-Intra Class4:4:4 deliver spectacular performance in applications where image quality is the utmost consideration.The VariCam HS encodes a high-resolution 3.5Mbs proxy file in parallel with higher bandwidth production formats, enabling fast, efficient offline editing.
Among the camcorder's key features are real-time high frame rate and off-speed recording to 240fps in1080p (using AVC-Intra Class100), plus the ability to ramp / change frame rates during record. Powerful color management capabilities provide a much extended color gamut for impeccable image fidelity, and permit support for an Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) workflow for full fidelity mastering of original source material. The VariCam 35 also affords in-cameracolor grading. The VariCam HS also affords in-camera color grading.
