The Panasonic AG-HMR10 is a portable device with the ability to record AVCHD high definition video to SecureDigital cards. The recorder is sleek and small and can be taken virtually anywhere. When connected to the AG-HCK10G POV camera, the AG-HMR10 makes a great POV camera with a wide range of unique creative functions. Whether it's merely bringing the simple convenience of switching to a tapeless workflow or shooting in special, hard-to-reach places, the recorder's advanced functions provide quality and resolution unmatched by the competition.

AVCCAM In The Palm Of Your Hands

High-End AVCHD Image Quality
The AG-HMR10 Series features the image-enhancing PH mode that Panasonic developed exclusively for AVCCAM camcorders. It delivers a maximum AVCHD bit rate of 24 Mbps (average: 21 Mbps). Designed for professional image production, this mode handles full-raster HD 1920 x 1080 and 1280 x 720 HD pixels, and lets you record 1080/30p, 1080/25p, and 1080/24p progressive images in addition to 1080/60i and 1080/50i when connected to the AG-HCK10G (optional).
Ease, Efficiency, Reliability
Unlike videotape, there's no need for queuing with the SDHC Memory Card because recording automatically begins in a blank section of memory. Nor do you have to worry about accidentally recording over important footage. You can delete unwanted clips instantly right on the spot to preserve memory capacity. Editing after shooting is smooth and easy, with no need for digitizing. The tiny SDHC Memory Card is durable, too. Its operating range is from -25-85°C (-13-185°F), so you can stop worrying about harsh temperatures or condensation and just concentrate on your shooting. And of course, you never have to worry about problems with dropouts or clogged heads.

More Efficient than Tape

Shot Mark
To simplify shot selection, you can add a mark to the thumbnail images of each clip. You can then display and play only the clips that have shot marks.
Pre-REC
The Pre-REC function helps to ensure you always get the shot you want by letting you continuously store, and subsequently record, images and sounds for 3 seconds before the REC button is pressed. 1
REC Check
Plays back the last 2 seconds of the most recently recorded clip for quick confirmation. 2
Last Clip Delete
Only the most recently recorded clip is deleted with this one-touch function. It can be assigned as a User button function if desired.
Meta-data Recording
The date, camera operator, location, title and other information can be added to the image data.
LCD Reverse
The image displayed on the LCD monitor can be reversed vertically and horizontally to check the angle and recorded image.
Index
Index flags can be added to any desired points in a clip during recording or playback. Up to 100 index flags can be added to each clip.

Image Control

Waveform Monitor Display
A horizontal analysis of the input signal's brightness level can be displayed on the monitor. This lets you adjust the standard black and white levels while checking the Waveform Monitor (WFM), making it easy to get highly accurate adjustments.
Simplified Vector Scope
The display can be switched from waveform monitor (WFM) to vector scope (VECTOR).

Convenient Playback Functions

Resume Playback
When the Stop key is pressed during playback, the stop position is stored in memory. Simply press the Play key to start playing again from the stop position. This feature is especially appreciated when reviewing long clips.
Repeat Playback
This function provides repeat clip playback. It is convenient for use in presentations and demonstrations because playback is seamless, and there's no need for rewinding. There's also no wear or tear on the recording media or degradation in the image quality.
Clip Operation
The AG-HMR10 Series allows fast forward, fast reverse, clip forward, clip reverse, and frame by frame playback operation.

Convenient Recording Functions

Clip Operation
You can insert time and date information into the video signal. This could be convenient, for example, when observing animals over an extended period, in certain academic uses, in surveillance, court reporting, legal depositions or law enforcement applications.
TC/UB Recording
Provides a built-in SMPTE time-code generator.

Additional Features

HD-SDI Input/Output
HD-SDI input and HD/SD-SDI output (down-converting the image for SD-SDI output) are equipped. Digital AV signals can be transmitted up to 100 m (328 ft) with a BNC cable. Line recording of high-quality images from video cameras and switchers is also supported. When connected to a camera-recorder, the camera trigger can be interlocked to REC start and stop recording.
HDMI Output Terminal
The AG-HMR10 Series is equipped with an HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) output terminal for digital transferring of high-quality HD image and audio signals.
SD Down-conversion Output
Either HD-SDI or HDMI output can be used to down-convert and output HD images as SD images while they are being recorded or played. When converting, a 16:9 to 4:3 aspect ratio side crop, letterbox, or squeeze images can be selected. It enables a wide variety of applications, such as viewing on an external monitor or SD dubbing.
USB 2.0 Terminal
The standard USB terminal (Type mini B) allows the AG-HMR10 Series to connect to a computer in device mode. This lets a Windows PC/Mac installed with the provided AVCCAM Viewer software to ingest, copy, and write HD video files, as well as transfer them to AVCHD-compatible nonlinear editing software for HD image production.

      I returned a Black Magic Hyperdeck for this and so glad that I did. I use it to record live switching from my Black Magic Designs TVS, and it works wonderfully.

      This would be the bestselling production recorder IF ONLY Panasonic would issue a firmware update to allow recording to production frame rates like 23.976p, 24, psf, etc. Right now it only accepts those rates if paired to the panasonic mini-hd cam. I would have bought 4 of them by now if this were the case.

          Comments about Panasonic AG-HMR10 AVCCAM Memory Card Portable Recorder:

          I use this product in a public access station setting. It works very well with my atem tvs and m/e 1. I have also fed out of one of my canon xa10's to use as a backup and 2nd monitor. I will agree with those that wish it had xlr audio connections but with my audio usually coming into the unit via sdi or hdmi its not a huge deal in my environment. We will likely use it this winter to record a clean feed of our basketball games for our coach to use.

                Comments about Panasonic AG-HMR10 AVCCAM Memory Card Portable Recorder:

                I bought this as a back up recorder to our PC based SSD DDR, but not I use it as the primary recorder with no back up. It has lost power several times and not lost a frame. And I get 200 min. of 1080i highest quality on a 32gig class 4 SD card. With the internal signal generator, I can send bars and tone to the studio as soon as I'm on site, which makes my engineer happy. When I need highlights or archive footage, I transcode what I need to P2 with the free transcoding software, and it looks great. My only problem is with the audio. It should have an XLR audio input instead of a mini.

                          This device without the camera pretty much duplicates the recording functions of many of the AVCHD cameras. It will only record in a variation of HD, no SD. Would have been nice to add SD recording and a HDMI Input.

                          Video size makes for easy archiving

                                  I bought this unit to interface to an ATEM switcher in our HD production trailer to provide high quality HD recordings for our local TV station. The unit provides easy connection via the SDI input and supports both 720P and 1080i recording modes onto very inexpensive SD cards that are available locally. ...And you get a monitor display so you can monitor the recordings and playback and review.

                                  The unit replaces our DVCAM recorder that can only do standard def recordings with much more expensive media. We also bought the companion camera and are quite impressed with it. The cables are expensive though.

                                  This would be the bestselling production recorder IF ONLY Panasonic would issue a firmware update to allow recording to production frame rates like 23.976p, 24, psf, etc. Right now it only accepts those rates if paired to the panasonic mini-hd cam. I would have bought 4 of them by now if this were the case.

                                    Small, lightweight, works as advertised. My only qualm is the mini jack for inserting audio. Wish there were XLRs!

                                          This recorder is deployed to record worship services at a Shrine in Philadelphia. But the story is much bigger. This little device can give you a great recording on a device you can afford to hand to a client. Its an almost universal format already. It's an HDSDI monitor! Its an HDSI to HDMI Converter.
                                          But EVEN better its a great little test apparatus..It can send or recieve Bars and Tone on SDI and HDMI. Thus it can be placed on a line for troubleshooting...But wait there's more..It has a scope...not the greatest scope but if you know what you are doing, all you need.

                                          It has one flaw, the tiny sdhc card door...be careful.
                                          If you need this, definitely click BUY NOW
