Manual Three Rings

The AG-CX350 comes with Manual Three Rings for zoom, focus and iris control. They deliver quick response and provide tactile feel that satisfies professionals. The zoom lever located at the upper section of the handle has a multi-step variable zoom function, allowing smooth zooming from ultra-low speed when shooting from low angle shooting and when a tripod is used.

Cabled/Wireless Remote Control Capability

The remote terminal (2.5-mm super mini jack) enables the control of the focus, zoom and iris using a remote controller (third-party product). It also supports wireless remote control using a tablet or smartphone (iOS, Android OS).

New HEVC Codec for High-Image-Quality 10-bit UHD/60p Recording at Low Bit Rate

The AG-CX350 is capable of recording in various formats at different compression rates (see the table below). It can record UHD/60p videos in high-image-quality 10-bit on an SD memory card. It also features a new, high-efficiency HEVC codec (LongGOP, 10-bit, 4:2:0, MOV) . When a PC with 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor is used, the hardware acceleration enables native decoding and playback. Free software, such as VLC Media Player or QuickTime Player, provides smooth playback on a notebook PC or MacBook with Intel Core i7 processor.

10-bit Variable Frame Rate (VFR) without Cropping

In UHD, variable frame rate (VFR) recording at 1 fps to 60 fps is possible. In FHD, super-slow can be realized at a maximum of 120 fps. Both provide high-quality 10-bit, full-frame pictures with no image area cropping even at high frame rates.

MOV/AVCHD/P2 MXF File Formats Supported

The AG-CX350 records MOV files that are highly compatible and easy to use. This file format is the same as that used on Panasonic’s compact cinema camera, the AU-EVA1, and supports file names with up to 20 characters, allowing recorded video clips to be easily managed. The AG-CX350 also supports conventional AVCHD recording, including the AVCHD 8 Mb/s mode, used widely as the format in college and professional football coaching analysis. And it will support the MXF P2 file format for broadcasting in the future, enabling AVC-Intra or AVC-LongG recording.

Freeze Frame (Still Image Capture)

When playing back video clips on the AG-CX350, any desired frame can be captured as a still image (JPEG) and recorded onto an SD memory card. Video playback, frame advance (+/-), and still-image captures can all be done intuitively by touch panel operation.

Double Memory Card Slots Improve Recording Reliability

Two SD memory card slots capable of using SDXC/SDHC/microP2 cards enable unlimited relay recording by simply changing SD memory cards. Recording reliability is further improved with simultaneous recording and background recording. And the AG-CX350 is equipped with Pre Rec, Interval Rec and Time Stamp recording functions.

Unlimited Relay Recording

Automatically records continuously from Slot 1 to Slot 2. By changing a full card with a new card, images can be recorded continuously for many hours.

Simultaneous Recording

Identical data is recorded onto cards in both slots in this dual recording mode.

Background Recording

Records ordinary Rec Start/Stop-controlled data in Slot 1, and records all data, even when Slot 1 is stopped, in Slot 2.

RTMP/RTSP-Compatible HD Streaming

HD streaming is possible while images are being acquired. Both RTSP and RTMP streaming methods are compatible. And Facebook, YouTube, and other streaming services are supported. The AG-CX350 can be used for live coverage of concerts and sports events as well as for live streaming of breaking news.

Easy IP Connection: Preinstalled NDI | HX

The AG-CX350 is the industry’s first camcorder to support NDI | HX. Equipped with NDI | HX mode, it allows video transmission and camera control via IP connection, without using an external converter. When connected to a system configured with the AV-HLC100 Live Production Center and HN/UN series PTZ integrated cameras, the AG-CX350 realizes end-to-end live video production of live events as well as web distribution.

Wireless Control from a Tablet or Smartphone

The AG-CX350 can be controlled remotely and wirelessly using a tablet/smartphone app (downloadable for free from the App Store or Google Play). In addition to zoom, i.Zoom and focus lens control, the app enables remote control of various other functions, including camera setting, picture quality adjustment, REC start/stop and menu setting. What’s more, the app can be used to select the camera to control from up to eight cameras.

Parallel Output of SDI and HDMI

SDI and HDMI can be output in parallel. Output of UHD video via HDMI and output of HD video in high-image-quality 10-bit, 4:2:2 via SDI enable a variety of uses. In HLG shooting, either HDR or SDR can be selected for each of the SDI, HDMI and LCD video outputs.

TC Synchro Multi-Camera Recording Supported

The TC IN/OUT terminal (BNC) allows synchronization of the time code in multi-camera shooting. The camera number (A to Z) can be added to the name of the recording folder to facilitate editing.

Simultaneous Display on High-Brightness, High-Definition LCD and High-Resolution OLED EVF

The AG-CX350 features a new 3.2-type high-definition LCD monitor (approximately 1,620,000 dots). This LCD monitor uses the RGBW (red, green, blue, white) pixel structure to provide high visibility even in bright sunlight. The 3:2 aspect ratio enables the display of timecode and camera status without superimposing on the image. The touch panel function allows convenient touch focus and menu setting. The viewfinder is a high-resolution color OLED (approximately 2,360,000 dots, with an image display area of approximately 1,770,000 dots) that offers superb color reproduction. Since the AG-CX350 newly supports simultaneous LCD and EVF outputs, the LCD monitor can display the captured image at all times even when you look away from the EVF.

24-bit PCM Supporting High-Resolution Audio

The use of the built-in stereo microphone or XLR input (switchable 48-V phantom power supply/MIC/LINE) allows 2-channel audio recording. In MOV mode, 24-bit linear PCM recording delivers higher sound quality. Future firmware update will enable 4-channel recording. Other audio features include manual volumes, OSD level meter, 1 kHz test tone output and headphone output (3.5 mm-diameter stereo mini jack).

Low Power Consuming, Large-Capacity Battery, Quick Charge

The AG-CX350 boasts low power consumption of 11.5 W (in factory setting, with no devices connected to the terminals), which is the industry’s lowest in the UHD/HD 10-bit recording camcorder segment. The maximum power consumption is only 17 W (HEVC recording, LCD turned ON, devices connected to the terminals). With the supplied battery pack (5900 mAh), the AG-CX350 operates continuously for about 3 hours and 20 minutes. This large-capacity battery pack supports quick charges.
