SANYO’s Dual Cameras have always been at the forefront for compatibility with computers as well as online applications and networking. The HD2000A features the iFrame video mode, which records in the same format used to edit on a computer, dramatically speeding up the processes of importing, editing and sharing movies across multiple platforms and devices.
The HD2000A camcorder will be available nationwide through national and regional retailers beginning October 21, 2009, with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $749.99.
iFrame is a computer-friendly video format that has been specifically designed to simplify the process of working with video recorded from a camera. With iFrame, the video recorded in the camera is in the same format that will be used for editing, which means that importing video is fast and file sizes are small. This translates to quick and easy editing and sharing of movies across multiple platforms and devices. This new format can also be used with both Mac and PC compatible applications due to the use of standards-based technologies such as H.264, AAC, MP4 and MOV.
The HD2000A Dual Camera is automatically programmed to default to the iFrame mode for ultimate ease of use and convenience. In addition to the iFrame video format (960 x 540), this camera can record in High Definition 1080P (1920 x 1080), as well as high speed video formats for slow motion playback.
The HD2000A is in SANYO’s signature vertical form factor.
SANYO Dual Cameras conveniently record photos and videos to SD/SDHC media cards (sold separately) and are thumb-operable for key functions, with separate video and photo buttons for easy switching between shooting video and photos. Unlike conventional camcorders, there’s no need to switch modes, enabling the capture of those once-in-a-lifetime moments as the cameras can take both stills and videos simultaneously.
This highly advanced camera not only offers a standard 1080i (interlaced) format (recording at 60 fields per second), but with the SANYO proprietary CMOS engine, recording is also available in an impressive 1080p (progressive) format, offering ultra-smooth, professional-looking 60 frames per second. The camera also offers 8-Megapixel still photos, sequential shooting, and a number of modes including macro photo capability.
