The AW-UE160 4K PTZ camera features a newly developed 4K 1" MOS sensor that offers the highest sensitivity of Panasonic's entire PTZ lineup. Production teams shooting in a concert venue or a church can easily capture clear images even in the most challenging lighting conditions. Meanwhile, the UE160's new optical low pass filter reduces the effect of moir‚ for clearer picture quality when shooting against an LED wall, which is especially important for rental and staging or worship environments. Its high-speed frame rate will help sports broadcasters capture slow motion shots in HD for replays, while seamless integration with the robotic camera system brings live broadcast-style movements to the PTZ, resulting in a dynamic and highly engaging video production.
Next Level PTZ Camera Performance
The AW-UE160 PTZ camera supports return input and high-speed shooting, which are indispensable for building a combined system with a system camera and is equipped with a tally lamp on the rear panel and two XLR channels for audio output. It is the first ever remote camera to support the SMPTE ST2110 standard1 and 5G router (USB tethering compatible), the standard for IP transmission in the broadcasting industry. The flexibility of the remote camera to freely set positions and angles and the specifications comparable to those of a system camera allow for the pursuit of unique and new video expression.
The AW-UE160 supports HDMI, 3G-SDI, and IP output as well as 12G-SDI output and optical fiber output. Also equipped with two XLR channels for audio input. The output method can be selected to suit the operation, making it easy to add to an existing imaging system or build a system tailored to the site.
Industry's First SMPTE ST2110 Standard Compatible PTZ Camera
The AW-UE160 is the first PTZ Camera3 to support the SMPTE ST2110 standard for video transmission over IP networks1. By constructing an IP-based studio system in combination with the IT/IP platform "KAIROS" or AK-UC4000/AK-UCU600/AK-NP600, it is possible to improve the efficiency of your video production workflow.
