AC Video Solutions was proud to provide engineering and production support as Newark Mayor Ras Baraka delivered his State of the City address at NJPAC on Tuesday March 15, 2016.

The 4-camera event took place at the the New Jersey Performing Arts Center’s Victoria Theatre and was streamed live online. The Mayor commented on the presidential race and the media, while emphasizing what he said were many positive strides Newark has made over the past year.

We utilized Panasonic AG-HPD24PJ record decks.

The AG-HPD24 is a portable P2 solid-state AVC-Intra recorder featuring native 1080/24p recording with variable frame rates, a super-fast USB 3.0 interface, and 24-bit four-channel audio recording in AVC-Intra 100/50.

This ultra-reliable, dedicated deck allows users to playback and review P2 cards on its 3.5-inch, 16:9 LCD screen, manage clip files and metadata, record full resolution 10-bit 4:2:2 master-quality video content from a wide range of Panasonic and non-Panasonic cameras via its HD-SDI input. It can also backup data onto hard disk drives.

The multi-format high-quality Panasonic switcher/mixer is designed to support multiple camera workflows. The AG-HMX100 also includes the ability to switch 3D HD video sources making it the first affordable live switcher for use in 3D production. The highly versatile unit integrates a HD/SD video switcher, audio mixer, MultiViewer and control panel in a single compact unit.

The HMX100 features a built-in MultiViewer output and combines high-quality video switching with embedded or analog audio mixing functions. It offers a very flexible user interface and supports SD and HD formats..
