What is the AW-SF100G auto tracking software key?

The AW-SF100G is a software license for Panasonic auto tracking software.

The following Panasonic remote cameras are compatible with the auto tracking feature as of Feb 2016.

  • AW-UE70 series : 4K/HDTV integrated camera
  • AW-HE40 : HDTV integrated camera
  • AW-HE130 series : HDTV integrated camera

Advantage of Panasonic auto tracking system: The use of high-performance "motion detection" system which is the combination of the multiple detection algorithm makes it possible to track the subject with minimum tracking error regardless of where the person facing, even in situations such as lecture where the lecturer is writing on a blackboard showing his/her back to the camera.

In addition, since this function does detection/tracking with streaming video from the camera, it is not necessary to have the video capture board needed for capture on a PC. This reduces the processing load for video capture, thereby eliminating the need for a high-performance PC.

Do all Panasonic remote cameras support its auto tracking feature?

The following products are compatible with this feature as of Feb 2016.
