Warranty information available here

The AW-HE130 is the successor model of the successful AW-HE120. The new PTZ camera offers new and enriched functions for an expanded range of applications.

The highly sensitive camera is equipped with three newly developed 1/2,86-type three MOS sensors, allowing for high-grade filming even in low light conditions, also offering a superior S/N ratio and high resolution. In addition to 3G-SDI and HDMI output, production quality full HD video output via IP transmission is supported with the AW-HE130. The camera delivers up to four channels of IP streaming video (H.264), with configuration levels of the quality level.

In addition to a sharp, fast F1,6, 20x optical zoom lens, the AW-HE130 is equipped with an innovative 1,4x digital extender that can increase the effective focal length of the lens by 40% while delivering smooth, high resolution video. The new built in Optical Image Stabilization System (OIS) automatically minimizes the effect of small vibrations from the surface where the camera is mounted caused; whether this is caused by the opening and closing of doors, nearby speakers, or other disturbances.

By connecting to network devices that support the IEEE 802,3 at POE+ standard, power can be supplied via LAN cable. Since it is not necessary to install a power supply even a local A.C. outlet, installation costs can be significantly reduced.

Thanks to a highly evolved pan-tilt design, the AW-HE130 achieves smoother and more natural movement during on-air shots. The pan-tilt head also has a wide shooting range, with a pan range of ±175° and a tilt range of -30° to 210°. The newly developed pan tilt drive provides high-speed operation at maximum 60°/s, excellent response to remote control operation, and highly precise stop control. These features combine to accurately capture fast-action sports scenes or smooth concert footage. The noise level during operation is also very low, at NC35 or less, which is ideal for use in quiet environments.

This makes the AW-HE130 an ideal choice as a replacement camera for existing systems. It is available in two colors to match a variety of decors. The pearl white model (AW-HE130W) is suitable for settings such as chapels and wedding halls, while the black metallic model (AW-HE130K) is ideal for capturing theatrical performances or events. It has a turn-lock mechanism that allows ceiling mounting in the same manner as a lighting fixture, and its light weight means it can be installed easily by a single person.

On the WEB screen, the latency of H.264 videos is high. What is a recommended PC environment?

CPU: Intel Core2 DUO 2.4 GHz or higher recommended
Memory: 1 GB or more (but 2 GB or more for 64-bit Windows 8.1 / 8 / 7)
Network Function: One 10BASE-T or 100BASE-TX port

When connected via IP, depending on the specs / environment of PC used, the latency in displaying video data may be much higher due to the influence of the load by decoding process.

Not only the clock rate of CPU but also other specs of your PC should meet the recommended requirements.

In addition, on Mac, H.264 videos cannot be viewed when it is connected via IP.

On the WEB screen, H.264 videos will not appear. How should this be addressed?

Check the Firewall setting on the PC used for IP connection.
>Control Panel;> Windows Firewall;> Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall.

In "Allowed programs and features:" list, check all the boxes (Domain, Home/Work (Private), Public) at "Internet Explore". Please refer to the functions of your PC for more information.

On the WEB screen, the camera picture is not normal in Live - Multi display mode, why?

If AW-HE130 is in the Standby state, its camera picture may not be normal. When it is back in the Power-ON state, it will start outputting a normal picture, so check its state.

AW-HE130 Multi display mode is designed so that its camera picture is not “Black” in the Standby state.
This is not a malfunction. Please be assured and continue to use it.

When monitoring a camera picture using an iOS mobile device, why does the IP video stream sometimes stop?

On iOS mobile devices, some conditions in wireless LAN connection may cause the streaming to stop.
In this case, update (reload) the WEB screen.

After having used normal digital zoom from a 30x optical zoom, is it possible to further use extender zoom?

AW-HE40/HE65 : 30x optical zoom
AW-HE130 : 20x optical zoom

Does the camera have any screw hole for a tripod?

It has one 1/4-20UNC threaded hole with AW-HE40/HE65.
They have two 1/4-20UNC threaded hole with AW-HE130.

There is a description of "equipped with RS232C remote terminal".  What kind of situations is this used in?

The controller that supports Standard Communication Protocol can be connected to this terminal to operate basic camera controls.

- Address Setting - Interface Clear - Power Supply Control (ON/OFF) - Zoom Control - Focus Control - White Balance - Iris Control - Gain Control - Bright Control - Aperture Contorl (outline enhancement) - Preset Control (preset registration, preset call) - Menu Display - Pan-Tilt Control - Pan-Tilt Limit Setting

What are PoE+ and PoE?

It is an abbreviation for Power Over Ethernet.

It is a function to receive electrical power via LAN cable (max. 100 m) by using a PoE+ hub or injector. No AC Adapter is needed, so the number of wires can be reduced when wiring up the devices. Also, it is possible to install them in where electrical work is difficult to do.

The power-supply capability (* output power value at the PoE hub end)
PoE = 12.5W
PoE+ = 25.5W

* PoE+ is downwards compatible, so a PoE+ hub works with PoE devices. But a PoE hub does not work with PoE+ devices.
* Cable: category 5e or above, max. 100 m

If both AC Adapter and PoE+ power supply are used, which one comes before the other?

AC Adapter is used preferentially.

Which OS and browser are supported?

* Please refer to the following web page.

Is it possible to output SDI/HDMI/VIDEO_OUT/IP simultaneously?

It is possible.
However, there are simultaneous output conditions for SDI/HDMI/VIDEO_OUT depending on the video format.
* For details, please refer to page 18 of Operating Instruction, OPERATION.

Is it possible to embed the audio on all of IP, SDI and HDMI?

Yes, this is possible.
