Want to live stream high quality audio and video from your gigs, special events and more? With the Q2HD, now you can stream your videos through your computer directly to the web. Simply connect your Q2HD to your computer via USB cable (included in the optional APQ-2HD accessory package) and start streaming like the pros. The Q2HD’s streaming function is compatible with Ustream Producer, Flash Media Live Encoder, Skype and other popular streaming applications. And it works wonders with premium programs such as Ustream Producer Pro or Studio. It’s never been easier to broadcast your movies on the web in real-time.
The Q2HD is the first handheld camcorder to offer Mid-Side stereo recording. Mid-Side recording, originally offered by Zoom on the H2n Handy Recorder, is a technique that’s been used for many years in film and broadcast, where ambiance is crucial. Mid-Side recording combines a unidirectional Mid mic that captures sound directly in front of you and a bidirectional Side mic that captures sound from your left and right. By increasing or decreasing the level of the Side mic, you can control the width of the stereo field, which gives you incredible flexibility over your recordings. With its condenser microphones in 30° to 150° Mid-Side stereo configuration, the Q2HD gives you natural depth and accurate imaging. From live musical performances, rehearsals and recitals to journalism, education, sports and travel, the Q2HD’s pristine audio is so realistic your movies will let you relive the moment over and over again.
Your HD Videos are recorded in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format, which can be played on a computer using QuickTime player. The Q2HD can record video in full HD at 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, allowing you to enjoy your finely-detailed audio and video on your large HDTV. You can also select 720p HD for longer recordings, as well as SD formats when smaller file sizes are needed.
Zoom made on-the-go viewing better than ever with the Q2HD. You can easily switch between “Portrait” and “Landscape” playback by pressing and holding the PLAY key. Watch your videos anywhere with its color LCD screen and built-in reference speaker.
