Panasonic has boosted its line up of remote cameras with the launch of a firmware upgrade so that its entire line-up supports NDI|HX, alongside the introduction of a new PTZ camera, the AW-HE38.
Integration with the Network Device Interface (NDI), enhanced with a new high-efficiency mode, allows users to connect Panasonic professional PTZ cameras directly to an NDI network.
Nela Pertl, Panasonic Broadcast & ProAV Marketing Manager EMEA, says, “With automatic detection by the NewTek TriCaster® and NewTek’s IP Series of professional video switchers, Panasonic’s remote camera line-up can now seamlessly integrate with the hundreds of other NDI-capable products, enabling NDI-based video production workflows without any additional configuration. This is a huge step towards truly remote production.”
In addition, Panasonic has strengthened its PTZ line-up with the launch of the AW-HE38, which also has the ability to support NDI|HX. A low cost, Full HD remote camera with integrated pan-tilt, it features the same specification as the AW-HE40H, with the addition of a 22x zoom. It is available with HDMI output only, making it ideal for a wide variety of applications, including lecture theatres and meeting rooms.
The AW-HE38 series incorporates a newly-developed 1/2.3-type MOS sensor and Digital Signal Processors (DSP) for high sensitivity, high resolution and superior video capture in a wide range of shooting conditions.
