" Just over a year ago, reports surfaced that two Purdue University graduates, Juan P. Pertierra and Jeremy Jacobs, had devised a way of modifying the Panasonic AG-DVX100 to bypass the camera’s tape mechanism and output a 4:4:4 10-bit uncompressed RGB signal. Like any digital-video camera, the DVX100 discards a great deal of information when it records to tape. By intercepting the camera’s signal before that data was jettisoned, Pertierra and Jacobs offered the tantalizing possibility that a MiniDV camera could output an image with more color depth than most hi-def cameras. Moreover, by offsetting the camera’s green layer by half a pixel, the system could output an image with an effective resolution of 1540x990 pixels....."
