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 Panasonic AW-UE4: Cometh the hour Cometh the Camera

Panasonic sold hundreds of AW-HE2 camera units. When it was discontinued, the calls kept coming in from customers who needed something of this size and functionality for small radio studios and news studios.  At last we have a worthy replacement in the AW-UE4.  It is a little bigger than the HE2, but it has tons more features, many of these are particularly useful at the moment. Great in a tight space The UE4 has a very wide-angle lens with a 111-degree field of view.  This means sitting on the desk in my small office the camera can see the whole room.  There is a 4X digital zoom which you can use to crop in for closer head shots (or to hide the pile of toilet rolls and corned beef in the opposite corner). If you are really hard-up for space because it’s only 500 grams it can be hung upside-down on a ceiling or under a shelf using the supplied bracket.
