Control Assist remote camera accessory - Black

A real gem. Its 1080p, 4 megapixel sensor shoots great-looking HD pictures together with pretty decent sound. The large chip means that users can digitally zoom (18 -35mm equivalent) with no picture quality loss and select any part of the frame for playout or recording. It even supports picture-in-picture output. Control is via Ethernet, using a laptop or RP controller, with live preview pictures transmitted over IP.

 
As a small, versatile, low-cost, high-quality camera, this is a product we really admire.

The remote control panel AW-RP50 for Panasonic HD integrated cameras or a PC/Mac can control up to 100 units of the AW-HE2N via a switching hub through IP connections. Furthermore, the IP image output function allows IP image to be transmitted to a terminal*.

Space saving compact design with a diameter of 55 mm and length of 135 mm


The space saving and lightweight design with a diameter of 55 mm (2.2 inches) and length of 135 mm (5.3 inches) and main body weight of approximately 0.3 kg (0.7 lb)* allows images to be shot without adversely affecting the atmosphere in the shooting location. The IP connection that allows LAN cables to be used and lightweight main body have resulted in excellent connectivity and install ability. In addition to normal DC power supplies, it supports USB bus power supplies (micro B connector). Thus, the power can be supplied from micro USB AC/DC converters for general mobile phones, PCs or TVs equipped with USB terminals.

* Main body only
