Panasonic took the
advanced imaging circuitry used in our professional
equipment and adapted it for home use in the HD Advanced
Pure Color Engine. The result is a high-speed processing
unit that can handle the huge volumes of data captured
in high-definition video recordings. The HD Advanced
Pure Color Engine also incorporates a new system that
improves resolution and reduces noise while achieving a
more compact size and lowering power consumption.
* In the Latin American
market, the HD Advanced Pure Color Engine is called the
HD Crystal Engine.
Video Compression LSI
Designed specifically for full-HD
recording, this advanced LSI provides the high
compression (H.264 High Profile used) needed to achieve
high-resolution recording with a low bit rate. It helps
ensure beautiful recordings by minimizing the image
degradation that can occur when shooting fast-moving
Distant subjects can be
enlarged so they appear to be right up close. This
allows dynamic shots of both motion and still
model offers the High-Picture-Quality Wide Mode,
which produces images that make for beautiful,
dramatic viewing on a wide-screen TV. The image is
processed on 16:9 area of the CCD. Because the image
decoded has the same proportions as your wide-screen
TV, there is virtually no picture quality
degradation. You get beautiful images and all the
excitement and dynamism on either a wide 16:9 screen
TV or a conventional 4:3 TV.
This model also features a wide 2.7-inch LCD, making
it easier to frame shots when you're shooting in

The HDC-SX5 can record and play DVD-RAM, DVD-RW,
DVD-R DL and DVD-R discs and SDHC/SD Memory Cards. With
a DVD-RAM disc, you can record again and again on the
same disc, up to tens of thousands of times. You can
record repeatedly on DVD-RW discs as well, and they are
well suited to editing. While you can record only once
on DVD-R DL/DVD-R discs, they can be played back on
almost any kind of BD player or recorder. Video clips
recorded onto SDHC/SD Memory Cards can be copied to a
DVD disc right inside the HDC-SX5. In addition, with a
Viera PZ700, you can simply take the SDHC/SD Memory Card
from your camcorder and slip it into the card slot on
the TV for easy viewing*. The wide compatibility of the
HDC-SX5 lets you choose the recording media that works
best in your playback environment.
* With other SD card slot-equipped
Viera models, you can view JPEG format still images.
When recording onto a DVD disc,
the SX5 lets you record in either full-HD or standard
definition. The mode dial makes it easy to choose the
recording format that matches your playback equipment.
When playing back with a DVD player or recorder, select
standard definition. When viewing on an HDTV or using a
Blu-ray Disc player, choose full-HD.
