The AW-HE40H from Panasonic is a fully integrated full HD PTZ camera featuring Power over Ethernet+ (POE+) and IP-live video monitoring. The AW-HE40H incorporates Panasonic's newly-developed 1/2.3-type full HD MOS sensors and Digital Signal Processors (DSP) for high sensitivity, high resolution and superior video capture in a wide range of shooting conditions.
The AW-HE40H has an HDMI output and produces fantastic results in a variety of applications requiring high-quality video and precise control such as sports video, reality TV POV cams, conference video, live events, distance learning and houses-of-worship. Its precision 30X optical zoom lens, wide field of view and smooth PTZ function is ideal for demanding remote production and IMAG use. With IP-Preview transmission and control as well as support for PoE+ (which allows power to be supplied via a LAN cable), the AW-HE40H also offers the flexibility needed for easy installation and management.
This camera also features a 1.4x digital extender to capture crisp close-ups even in large auditoriums and lecture halls. The AW-HE40H delivers an impressive signal-to-noise ratio of 54dB (F4/2000lx, minimum illumination, .35 lx), 1000 TV lines of resolution and 16-axis color matrix control for precise camera "painting" and matching. Audio input and embedding is also available via a switchable, stereo MIC/LINE input.
For shooting in virtually total darkness, the AW-HE40H's Night Mode makes it possible to automatically switch to the capture of high-quality, HD monochrome video with the use of an (optional) IR illuminator in the 850nm range, making the camera ideal for reality show production, sleep lab research and staging support.
IP, RS-422, RSN/A232C in/out interfaces are included, and a built-in Web-server enables both Browser control and IP-live preview and setup of up to 16 cameras. Serial and IP control is available using Panasonic's AW-RP50N, AW-RP120G controllers and AK-HRP200G paintbox, as well as appropriately programmed systems from Crestron, AMX, Winnov, and other manufacturers. A new Freeze-During-Preset function can be enabled to store and display a video still-frame during preset recall and camera movement to improve the viewer experience during rapid on-air moves or in single camera use.
IP control with image monitoring using PC, Mac and mobile terminals.
Equipped with image compression and IP transmission LSI. IP video*3 can be transmitted to up to ve terminals*2 per camera. Using an IP browser, the camera can be controlled from a remote location, and IP video monitoring and remote camera control can be performed from a PC, Mac or mobile terminals*4 such as an iPhone, iPad or Android device, enabling easy operations.
