To upgrade your current PRO PTZ camera or camcorder with NDI|HX, you can purchase a license directly from Newtek. This license will allow NDI compatible PRO PTZ cameras or camcorders to serve as a live video inputs for any NDI® compatible hardware or software from anywhere on your network.
Is an extended warranty available for this product?
This product comes with the option to upgrade to Panasonic Pro Protection, a service program that offers enhanced service and support coverage for up to 5 years. This service must be purchased at the time of the product purchase and is only available through Authorized Panasonic Resellers in the United States.
Where can I download a user guide, scene files and watch tutorials for the AG-CX350 camcorder?
Now available, A Guide To The Panasonic AG-CX350 Camcorder authored by Barry Green contains an easy and fast orientation to basic principles and in-depth walkthroughs of the AG-CX350's unique features and capabilities. Along with custom developed scene files and tutorial videos, everything you need to know about this powerful new camera is now at your fingertips!
Optimized For 4K/HD Production With Live Broadcasting Capabilities
The CX350 is a handheld camcorder that is optimized for 4K/HD production with live broadcasting capabilities. With its integrated lens design, the CX350 brings impressive new features including 4K 10-bit 60p capture, HDR recording, and is equipped with the RTMPS / RTMP / RTSP / RTP protocol for live streaming and NDI|HX-ready IP connection. At only 4.2-lbs. (body only), the CX350 is also the lightest 4K 10-bit fixed-lens camcorder in its class.
Exceptional Sensor Performance
The 1.0-type MOS sensor (approx. 15.03-megapixels in UHD/FHD) provides exceptional depth-of-field and offers a great balance between image quality and sensitivity (F12/F13 in High Sensitivity Mode). The CX350 can capture in UHD (3840x2160), Full HD (1920x1080), HD (1280x720), and SD (720x480). Like the EVA1, the CX350 offers 10-bit 4:2:2 color sampling with ALL-Intra (400-Mbps) and LongGOP (150Mbps) and can be recorded in UHD up to 29.98p/25p and FHD up to 59.97p/50p. It also supports the 10-bit HEVC codec at UHD up to 59.97p/50p with a low bit rate of 200Mbps. The HEVC 10-bit codec can be natively decoded and played by computers with 7th Generation (or later) Intel Core i7 chips. All of these formats and compression rates can be recorded internally to lower cost SD cards.
Streaming Capabilities in 4K and SRT Protocol Support
4K streaming is supported with a variety of frequencies and HD streaming is possible while recording. Both Client/Listener mode and encryption are also supported. H.264/H.265 codec and a variety of bitrates can be selected. The CX350 also supports USB tethering using your smartphone.
SRT Protocol enables high-quality streaming. SRT is used for direct live video transport between locations over the public internet.
Benefits of SRT
The flexible and highly adaptable buffer management system assures stable video transmission even in a network environment with an unstable bit rate. Public internet can be used for a long-distance video transmission.
|Secure||Encrypts video data before the transmission to assure high security.|
The packet loss recovery function automatically detects packets lost during the transmission and resends them to achieve stable, disturbance-free video transmission.
The CX350 offers multiple forms of IP connectivity. It is the first handheld camcorder with in-camera NDI|HX compatibility (requires license purchase, internal recording is disabled in NDI|HX mode), allowing for high-quality IP video connectivity with live production switchers, including the Panasonic AV-HLC100 Stream Studio. The CX350 contains an RTMP (Real Time Messaging Protocol) / RTMPS function, which enables video streaming to key social platforms like Facebook Live and YouTube Live. Internal HD recording (MOV) while streaming content is also available. The CX ROP app for iOS/Android tablets enables IP remote control of the CX350 with Gigabit Ethernet LAN connector (RJ45), or wireless module (AJ-WM50). With the app, you can control functions such as camera settings, picture quality adjustment, REC start/stop, menu settings and more.
Controllers for Simplified Live Camera Operation
V-LOG Video Capture
The addition of V-Log adds a new dimension to the CX350, especially for documentaries. Documentaries will often use a multitude of cameras to capture a variety of shots that fit the story. For example, a cinema camera like the EVA1 with its 5.7K Super 35mm sensor can capture cinematic shallow depth of field while the CX350 might capture dynamic action shots from far in the distance with its 20x lens. With both cameras capturing in V-Log, it will be easier to match the look of both cameras in an NLE timeline.
When recording in V-Log, the 4K Super35 VariCam lineup (VariCam 35, VariCam PURE, VariCam LT) can captures 14+ stops of Dynamic Range. The EVA1 with it's 5.7K Super 35mm sensor can captures 14-stops. The CX350 and its 1" CMOS sensor can capture 13+ stops. As you may or may not know, ITU-R BT.709's system gamma is limited to 6.8 stops.
To store this expanded latitude, a logarithmic contrast curve is employed. However, displaying this huge range of image contrast (the darkest shadows to the brightest highlights) in Log format on a conventional monitor will show an image that looks flat and desaturated but these Log images are used to provide the greater flexibility for post color correction. You can then adjust V-Log for viewing using a 3D LUT (3D Look Up Table) such as the V-709 LUT, or the VariCam LUT Library.
Capture Wide Angles & Wide Dynamic Range
The CX350’s integrated lens contains a wide angle of 24.5mm at the wide-angle setting with minimal-distortion. The 20x optical zoom lens covers the range from 24.5mm to 490mm (35mm film equivalent at 4K/HD). It also has the 35x(HD) / 24x(4K) Intelligent Zoom function. In both 4K and HD shooting modes, the CX350 uses 5-axis hand-shake correction that combines the effects of both optical and electronic image stabilization, providing a steadier image in unstable shooting conditions.
In addition to capturing conventional gamma modes (HD, SD, FILMLIKE 1/2/3 FILM-REC, VIDEO-REC), the CX350 now supports HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) to capture a wider dynamic range. The HLG standard was developed jointly by the BBC (British Broadcasting Company) and NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) and is currently supported by both TV stations and streaming services. When shooting HLG, the CX350 can be set to HDR or SDR Color Setting on each output – LCD/EVF, SDI and HDMI.
For sports shooters, Variable Frame Rate (VFR) recording can be set in the range of 1-fps to 60-fps (59.94Hz). In FHD mode, Super Slow motion can be achieved at 120-fps/100-fps (59.94Hz, 50Hz). The CX350 can also capture 720p AVCHD 8-Mbps, for a video analysis and compatibility with DV Sports and XoS Digital.
Additional key features of the CX350 include support for AVCHD, P2HD, simultaneous SDI and HDMI output (UHD video via HDMI and output of HD video via 10-bit, 4:2:2 SDI), two audio channels from the built-in stereo mic, or two XLR audio inputs, and low power consumption at 17 W. Two toggle switches for GAIN and WHITE BALANCE are available, as well as two Accessory Shoes for additional versatility.
