Compact Field Recorder + POV Field Camera: A Winning Combo

The versatility of the UMR20 recorder and UCK20 POV camera combo makes it the ideal solution for a variety of shooting situations, fitting perfectly in anything from sports coaching analysis to reality TV production, from live streaming indoor events to broadcasting remote nature footage.

The AG-UMR20 recorder provides the flexibility of low cost, SD memory card recording, advanced yet high-quality compression, and UHD/FHD resolution capture in a small, portable unit, ideal for applications in video production, sports coaching, healthcare, public safety, remote imaging and much more.

Equipped with a 3G-SDI input and output, the UMR20 AVCCAM recorder is also suitable for backup FHD recording from any 3G-SDI-enabled camera or for use in studio or event production. The 1.2-pound unit features a lightweight, ergonomic design suited for handheld use (3.78” W x 2.07” H x 5.24” D) and has four 3mm threaded holes for flexible mounting. The UMR20 records stunning FHD (1920 x 1080) 59.94p/50p and high-resolution 4K (3840 x 2160) 29.97p/25p* images when used in conjunction with the AG-UCK20. The recorder is equipped with Double SD memory card slots, enabling Relay Recording with two memory cards (SDXC memory card supported).

The UMR20’s IP streaming/IP control facilitates video/audio streaming and distribution to PCs, tablets and IP decoders. Rec Start/Stop control from an IP controller is supported, and recorded image files can be transferred to an FTP server. The UMR20’s core engine for IP control and streaming is similar to that of Panasonic current AW professional integrated PTZ line-up and will fall right into the same overall system. The UMR20 also features an IP web user interface allowing for remote monitoring, control and configuration.

In addition to 3G-SDI input/output, the UMR20 comes standard with interface connections including an HDMI out and USB 2.0 interface, mic/line level audio input, built-in speaker and headphone stereo mini jack. A remote terminal enables fingertip camera zoom/focus/iris and Rec Start/Stop control.

The UMR20 boasts improved recorder operation with a touch-panel monitor and large buttons. A 3.5-inch color LCD monitor displays content in thumbnail images for quick viewing that can be reversely displayed. Additional features include waveform monitor and vectorscope display (LCD only), photo file conversion (capable of 4K resolution photo extraction), timestamp, and continuous repeat playback of one or multiple clips (suitable for use in presentations). It operates on battery or DC12V power (AC power supply included).

The ultra-compact UCK20 camera head is equipped with a wide-angle 20x zoom lens that covers a range from 29.5 mm wide-angle to 612 mm close-ups (35mm equivalent). A 16-axis independent color correction function allows fine color adjustment, and an optical ND filter can be manually switched (OFF, 1/4, 1/16, 1/64). The UCK20 is equipped with an Infrared (IR) Shooting mode and a 5-axis hybrid image stabilizer that makes the camera highly effective for shooting action scenes.
