It's unclear what the 1080/60P capability support means; since it was listed on a separate slide to the 30P and 24P support, I took that to mean that it's add-on (i.e. future firmware update) or might only be possible when using additional hardware i.e. recording to an external device.
When asked about audio support, the answer given was: It will support audio! The details are still being worked out.
I would expect to hear a lot more about this camera at NAB.
