Stunning 4K NDI® with incredible colour tools

P400 features stunning 4K resolution NDI and allows chroma subsampling in your choice of 4:2:0 or 4:2:2. It teams up BirdDog’s custom NDI® silicon chip, a 4K Sony CMOS Backlit sensor, and a true Sony Image Module. P400 includes professional-level colour tools including Colour Matrix control, Black level, Gamma including 512 pre-set gamma positions.

4:2:2 4K Video

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.

Adaptive bit rate

Full NDI® is a variable bit rate codec. In normal circumstances BirdDog recommends allowing around 140Mbps in HD, or 6 streams per 1GbE cable with some headroom. In 4K it is recommended to allow around 300Mbps or 3 streams with some headroom to allow for any unforeseen spikes.

With BirdDog’s tools you can select the bit rate to suit your bandwidth and requirements. In both HD you can slide between 80-180Mbps and in 4K you can select the data rate to be anywhere between 60 and 360Mbps.

BirdDog Cam Control

BirdDog Cam Control allows full access to the entire colour matrix, black levels, and even the gamma to be able to shade your P400 professionally. Right click to view camera full screen on a secondary monitor to really dial in the look you want and then copy the settings to colour match cameras in seconds.

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 as an SDI camera and ease your way into the world of NDI®. lets you eliminate the need to add frame buffers.

Superfine Robotics. Precise control at your fingers

P400’s robotics are precise and sensitive. Wind down the panning and tilting speeds to create super professional shots that are dramatic, or crank up the speeds for high action sports to allow you to follow the movements.

20x Optical Zoom

The 20x optical zoom offers a bright F2.0 aperture with a super smooth and fast zoom. Transition from wide to tele and recall pre-set positions quickly and with super fine precision. The incredible optical zoom function makes P400 perfect for sports such as football, baseball, hockey, ski fields, basketball, soccer, and more.

Tally light

NDI has tally information built into the metadata so when P400 is connected to an NDI enabled switcher the tally light on the front of the unit to ensure your on-air talent will always know which camera is live.

PoE or DC Power options

P400 can be powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE+) for single cable operation that can carry Video, Audio, Power, Tally, and Intercom or you can choose to use the included power adapter.

PTZ Keyboard

Combine P400 with the BirdDog PTZ Keyboard and you have total control of all functions remotely. PTZ Keyboard is a full featured PTZ Keyboard that can control up to 255 PTZ cameras on a single network so can scale to even the most complex installations. PTZ Keyboard can control P400 over NDI® or by RS422 / RS232 when using in SDI mode.

BirdDog Stories: ICC Belfast

Belfast International Convention Centre is a state-of-the-art, purpose-built conference facility in the heart of Northern Ireland’s capital city. As well as a 2200-seat auditorium the venue boasts two large multipurpose halls, plus meeting rooms catering from 10 to 200 delegates. Like all live venues, the pandemic has forced Belfast ICC to think outside the box. Dave Young, Head of Technical Production, has extensive experience working in live events and had already been thinking about hybrid events – seamlessly connecting an audience on site with remote viewers.

Why Buy into BirdDog PTZ Cameras?

New to BirdDog, NDI, or Video over IP? Well, here are just a few reasons why BirdDog cameras are having their day.

Holdan 2021 | The Evolution of video throughout the pandemic

March 2020 and as lockdown started it was all about getting better and better web cams. We saw how awful the Zoom interviews on the news looked, all blocky backlit shadows and up-nose shots. A simple LED panel light would make a huge difference, and these flew out of the warehouse. The LEDGO LG-E268C has been on my desk ever since, on a tiny light stand which cost me £5.

BirdDog release their biggest and most colourful update EVER!

BirdDog have announced major updates for Eyes P100, Eyes P200, Eyes P400, P4K and Cam Control. To download the firmware, click here.

Bridging the NDI gap to ATEM: Blackmagic in the IP World

The video production market is transitioning towards IP. Whether it will ever get there 100% or will find a balance between HDMI, SDI and Ethernet remains to be seen, but we are without doubt entering a phase where crews and installers are weighing up the benefits of IP technology for each project. Why IP?
