New PTZ line-up from Panasonic

30 November 2014

Panasonic launches two new PTZ cameras

AW-HE40

Panasonic's new AW-HE40 a new remote camera with a range of features that make it ideal for the lecture, conference and leisure market. Featuring a newly developed 1/2.3-type MOS sensor and a Digital Signal Processor, for high sensitivity and high resolution, the AW-HE40 allows simple set up and operation.

Key features:

  • In addition to a 30x optical zoom, the camera features an additional digital zoom, meaning it’s possible to achieve a 40x zoom, while maintaining high resolution thanks to Super Resolution technology.
  • The camera’s ‘night mode’ makes it possible to capture images in low light conditions, and the AW-HE40 can be set to switch to night mode automatically depending on surrounding light levels.
  • Power can be supplied via LAN cable and, because it is not necessary to install a power supply or even a local AC outlet, installation costs can be significantly reduced.

Panasonic Product Marketing Manager, Markus Naegele said, “This new remote camera shines in a variety of applications thanks to its high performance zoom, wide angle view and outstanding colour reproduction. It’s very easy to install thanks a single cable Power over Ethernet connection, while you can control the camera remotely from a PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone.”

The quiet in operation pan-tilt camera, has a pan range of ±175 ° and can move through 90° in a second, for fast control.

The HE130 includes the same new three 2.4 megapixel MOS imagers and Digital Signal Processor (DSP) used in Panasonic’s latest broadcast camcorders. 

Control

For IP-Live remote monitoring and control, up to 16 cameras may be viewed simultaneously in a single Browser window, with extensive on-screen camera controls available when a single camera is selected for viewing.

The built-in remote-controllable four-position ND filter (clear, 1/8, 1/64, IR thru) facilitates flexible exposure control in brightly lit shooting situations.

The camera’s integrated pan-tilt head covers a wide range of motion, with a pan of ±175° and a tilt of –30° to 210°.
