Wow - P400 features stunning 4K resolution NDI and allows chroma subsampling in your choice of 4:2:0 or 4:2:2.
Double Wow - P400 teams up BirdDog's custom NDI® silicon chip, a 4K Sony CMOS Backlit sensor, and a true Sony Image Module.
Triple Wow - P400 includes professional-level color tools including Color Matrix control, Black level and Gamma including 512 pre-set gamma positions.
Full NDI®. No compromises.
In the world of NDI® there are two flavors, NDI® and NDI/HX. NDI® is a variable bit rate, I-Frame codec that reaches around 140Mbits at 1080p60 and is visually lossless. NDI/HX is a compressed, long-GOP, H.264 variant that reaches around 12Mbits at 1080p60. P400 is a Full NDI® camera.
4:2:2 4K. Numbers matter.
P400 debuts the world's first 4K NDI with chroma subsampling at 4:2:2 which can be decoded natively in hardware by BirdDog's 4K Family of NDI Encoders and Decoders. If decoding with a 4:2:0 receiver the stream will automatically serve 4:2:0 and this is what will be decoded. Think of it as an automatic and virtual handshake.
Free Cam Control. Shade like a pro, bro.

Incredible low light performance.
In low light conditions, the camera automatically switches from day to night mode, removing the IR-cut filter to boost sensitivity for clear pictures in near-darkness.
Triple output. NDI®, 6G-SDI and HDMI.
With NDI®, 6G-SDI, and HDMI simultaneous outputs, the P400 is ready to go live with your full NDI® workflow today or if you are still in an old school SDI workflow you can use it as an SDI camera and ease your way into the world of NDI® when you are ready. BirdDog will be here to welcome you into the future with open arms.
Genlock. Let that sync in.
With Genlock you can now synchronize multiple cameras using the Genlock input. Now all your cameras can be hitting your NDI® enabled vision mixer at the same time and lets you eliminate the need to add frame buffers.
