Excellent HD images via HDMI, USB and IP
The AW-HE40 series of integrated full HD cameras performs in a wide variety of onsite shooting applications that require high-quality video, such as conferences, lecture capture and other events, thanks to its high-performance zoom, wide angle of view and outstanding color reproducibility. In addition to IP video transmission, support for PoE+*1 enables power to be supplied via a LAN cable*2. The result is installation flexibility. It also supports HD-IP video output, output of video and audio via USB, and SD card recording.
The AW-HE40 series is equipped with a developed 1/2.3-type MOS sensor and DSP (Digital Signal Processor) for high sensitivity and high resolution. In addition to a 30x optical zoom, the AW-HE40 series can zoom up to 40x while maintaining high resolution thanks to Super Resolution technology.
It also features a 16x digital zoom*3 and a 1.4x digital extender, which enables the AW-HE40 series to shoot in large conference halls and classrooms. The AW-HE40 series supports USB Video Class and USB Audio Class. This enables video and audio output via USB so the cameras can be used as high-image-quality Web cameras for Web conferencing, distance learning, and other applications utilizing communication software.
Switching to Night Mode makes shooting possible even in low light conditions in which shooting is normally difficult, such as when observing wildlife*4. The AW-HE40 series can also be set to switch to the mode automatically depending on surrounding light levels.
The AW-HE40 series is equipped with conventional Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) and Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) as well as High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode. When shooting and synthesizing two images with differing exposure times, the AW-HE40 series can create video with high visibility that corrects for halation and black defects even under backlit conditions.
Flexible operation in line with various usage needs is made possible by a lineup that includes an SDI output model (AW-HE40SW/SK), optimal for video content production, and an HDMI output model (AW-HE40HW/HK), optimal for video streaming, both of which come in two body colors (white and black) that can be selected depending on the usage environment. The AW-HE40 series supports 1080/59.94p (HDMI model only), 29.97p*5, 59.94i, 29,97PsF, 1080/50p (HDMI model only), 25p*5, 50i, 25PsF, 720/59.94p, and 50p video formats.

PTZ Virtual USB Driver is an application software that runs on Windows. This makes it possible to use a remote camera in a network as a USB camera
In the last few years, PTZ (Pan, Tilt and Zoom) cameras have become more powerful - and versatile. The latest cameras are full broadcast quality (up to 4K) and have such comprehensive connectivity that there's usually no need for a conventional broadcast infrastructure.This is ideal for modern video productions in an environment where broadcast infrastructure is rapidly being replaced by IP/IT technology.At the same time, demand for video content is mushrooming beyond the capacity of traditional budgets. This calls for more TV production facilities but without the cost. Here's how PTZ cameras can help.
