Here are the product descriptions mentioned in this interview:

The Panasonic AJ-PX270 is the first P2 HD handheld camcorder that features AVC-ULTRA recording, delivering the high quality and incredible efficiency of low-bit-rate recording, the creative controls of a high-end shoulder production camera and the flexibility of 3G/4G/LTE wireless connectivity – all in a compact, 5-lb. package. It’s the ultimate news acquisition tool, perfect for a wide range of sports, corporate, education and event applications. The PX270 allows you to shoot anything, anywhere – from the street, to the studio, to the set – with incredible speed and control.

With its innovative AVC-ULTRA codec, the PX270 features a wide range of recording modes, now including the visually lossless AVC-Intra Class200 as well as high-quality 100Mbps AVC-Intra Class100. For applications where file size is critical, the camcorder incorporates a choice of AVC-LongG quality levels; for high-speed file exchange, the PX270’s high-resolution AVC-Proxy encodes in parallel with higher bandwidth production formats, enabling fast, efficient offline editing.
