The AW-UE50 has a newly-designed and compact body with a weight of only 1.8kg, which makes it very easy to handle and to install in any kind of setting, especially when positioning the camera on trusses or ceilings.


The AW-UE50 has been designed to support the following markets:

  • Live streaming events
  • Entry-level studio configurations
  • Higher education
  • Corporate installs

Single-cable solution

The AW-UE50 also offers PoE+ support for camera power, control and video transmission over a single cable.

Direct drive system

The AW-UE50 features the direct drive system based on Panasonic’s own technology for quiet and smooth vertical and horizontal direction, with a reduced operating sound of NC25 or lower. Direct drive also opens up more opportunities for PTZ operation including faster, precise movement and with higher accuracy in preset positioning – making it Panasonic’s fastest, quietest and most accurate PTZ yet.

Online Video Content support

When using the PTZ Virtual USB driver software and using a LAN connection, it is possible to obtain video and audio from the AW-UE50 in the same way you would an USB camera. The UE50 is also equipped with Privacy Mode, which positions the lens towards the back when on standby.

Upgraded 4K sensor

The AW-UE50 features a new 1/2.5-type 4K MOS sensor that produces stunning UHD video with true 4K resolution of 1,500 TV lines in UHD. The UE50 supports 3G SDI, HDMI and IP which makes it an ideal option for using within existing HD or 4K workflows thanks to its simultaneous video output feature.

Wide-Angle Lens

The AW-UE50 introduces a new wide-angle lens with a 74.1° field of view and a 24x optical zoom, enabling a wide area to be shot from a limited installation space, in addition to maintaining high image quality at high zoom ratios. This allows shooting in large indoor spaces. Intelligent zoom extends its capabilities to 28x in UHD and 36x in Full-HD.

Optical Zoom and Image Stabilisation

Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) has been added to the unit to ensure smooth pan-tilt movement when in busier environments or moving or be placed onto a robotic system for example.

New Processor

The AW-UE50 includes a new powerful chipset platform, making the PTZ incredibly responsive and capable of increased video processing tasks for higher image quality and lower latency.

4K & HD Analogue Outputs

The AW-UE50 supports up to 4K 25p/30p video at 3840 x 2160 to provide professional and high-quality shooting of moving images, as well as a wide variety of output interfaces such as 3G-SDI, HDMI, and IP – which can be activated simultaneously for HD and 4K workflows. USB* is also supported.

New NDI|HX, SRT & IP Outputs

There is also a wide variety of IP transmission protocols available. Out of the box, Secure Reliable Transport (SRT*1) is supported to maintain stability while transmitting high-quality video, even in unstable network environments. SRT allows video distribution over public internet in a secure and reliable way, as it offers encryption and as lost packets are automatically detected and resent.

The AW-UE50 also supports the high-efficiency, low bandwidth NDI|HX*2 version 2, which is available via an optional paid-for upgrade. This enables video transmission at low bitrates over a single LAN cable.

RTMP/RTMPS*3 provides direct streaming to live broadcasting services such as YouTube Live and Facebook Live from the camera directly.

New Web Interface & Simplified Workflows

A brand new web interface has been introduced for professional operators working within darker environments to easily navigate the advanced GUI for operators.

Panasonic offers an entire ecosystem of solutions to enable the new PTZ cameras to be smoothly introduced into existing camera systems. This includes use with its remote camera controllers, PTZ Control Center centralised control software, and its automatic tracking software for presentations and lectures, enabled by face recognition and human body detection.
