As a pre-Christmas promotion, Holdan is offering an exclusive incentive to Panasonic customers: purchase a new AG-HMC81 production kit from any participating dealer before 22nd December and claim a free Blu-ray recorder with 250Gb storage.
The Panasonic AG-HMC81 is tapeless, recording HD AVCCAM onto SD cards. One of the challenges for camera operators in today's tapeless world is the safe storage and archiving of daily rushes. The Panasonic DIGA DMR-BS780EBK state-of-the-art recorder offers a solution to this problem. With a SD card slot, you can copy up-to 14mbps data directly to this £350 device which offers both unlimited archiving and instant playback over HDMI.
Allan Leonardsen of Holdan explains: “For many people the AG-HMC81 is their first taste of tapeless production. We wanted to make it as enjoyable an experience as possible. This end-to-end Panasonic solution is a really neat way of creating a smooth workflow without any of the hassle of broadcast ingest systems. Plus, the BS780EBK is a lot of fun, with YouTube connectivity and dual satellite tuners.”
The AG-HMC81 production kit has a suggested retail price of £2,395 + VAT and includes a professional protective case from Camrade as well as a high-power IDX battery.
