(Secaucus, New Jersey--February 20, 2009) For professionals looking to get the most out of their Panasonic P2 solid-state recording system equipment, “Goodman's Guide to the Panasonic P2 System” is now available from AMGMedia Publishers.
Serving as a reference tool for use in the field or when planning for production and post, the highly-anticipated “Goodman's Guide to the Panasonic P2 System” is available online at http://www.goodmansguide.com
The arrangement of the guide’s sections is in production order. Basic concepts are covered in “The Ground Rules.” Photographs of P2 camcorders and devices -- keyed to help a user identify important buttons -- appear in the “What's That” section, where readers will also find menu trees. These foldouts are visual indexes to every P2 function. P2 menu organization has evolved with succeeding generations of camcorders, so there are three sets of menus to cover 31 camcorders and devices. Page numbers on every menu item make it easy to locate the explanations in the “What's That, Part 2” section.
The guide comes in an upgradeable 7.5” x 9.5” seven-ring binder, and features more than 230 pages of detailed information on the latest products and advances in P2 solid-state recording and workflow.
Tab dividers between sections include a list of the major topics in each section, while tabs on the sides of the pages help locate topics within the section quickly. Letter icons keyed to the photographs of the camcorders are there to help find the correct button on the camcorder or P2 device in use. Hundreds of full color illustrations and photographs illuminate concepts and clarify procedures to help professionals become more efficient and effective.
