Panasonic debuts prototype stereoscopic 3D camcorder

Panasonic reveals professional-grade stereoscopic 3D production system with Full HD recording

Panasonic has began developing a professional-grade stereoscopic 3D full HD production system. The system, which the company expects to be the first of its kind in the industry, consists of a twin-lens P2 professional camera recorder and a 3D-compatible high definition Plasma display. Panasonic is exhibiting concept models of the 3D system at NAB 2009 in Las Vegas.

Panasonic notes that at present, 3D content producers have to hand-build their own 3D production systems by physically connecting multiple 2D production devices. The company is now starting to work on developing a twin-lens, 3D camera system that should be much less expensive to purchase and easier to work with.

The twin-lens P2 camera recorder enables the capturing of high-quality live 3D images, says Panasonic. Due to the solid-state construction of the P2 system, the camera recorder will be compact enough to allow 3D shooting in a way that's more flexible than current stereoscopic 3D rigs. 3D Full HD recording using Panasonic's proprietary P2 system enables recording of two channels of Full HD images on the P2 card.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
