The Panasonic AW-HN38H 22X Zoom HD PTZ Camera with NDI is a fully integrated robotic camera with IP-based live production delivering full HD video directly to NDI-compatible systems, devices, and applications such as NewTek TriCaster, NewTek’s IP Series, Livestream Studio, OBS, Streamstar, Wirecast, vMix, Panasonic AV-HLC100 NDI Switcher, and all other NDI 2.0 or higher enable products. Using POE+ technology with just a single RJ-45 cable, the camera can output Video/Audio, Control, Power, and Tally across your existing network infrastructure.
The cost-effective Panasonic AW-HN38H with integrated NDI|HX full HD PTZ cameras advanced features including Power over Ethernet+ (POE+) and IP-live video monitoring. The AW-HN38H pan/tilt/zoom camera incorporates newly-developed 1/2.3-type full HD MOS sensors and Digital Signal Processors (DSP) for high sensitivity, high resolution, and superior video capture in a wide range of shooting conditions.
The Panasonic HN38H camera is designed to produce great results in a variety of applications that require high-quality video and precise control-such as conference video, event capture, staging, distance learning, and houses-of-worship. Thanks to their precision 22X optical zoom lenses, wide field of view, smooth PTZ functions, and exceptional image quality, the HN38H camera is ideal for demanding remote production and IMAG use. With IP-Preview transmission and control, and support for PoE+ (which allows power to be supplied via a LAN cable), the HN38H also offers the flexibility needed for easy installation and management. Incorporates the versatile IP/Serial/Web control system and IP pioneered in Panasonic's AW-HE60 series cameras. IP, RS-422, RSN/A232C in/out interfaces are included, and a built-in Web-server enables both Browser control and IP-live preview and setup of up to 16 cameras. Serial and IP control is available using Panasonic's AW-RP50N, AW-RP120G controllers, and AK-HRP200G paintbox, as well as appropriately programmed systems from Crestron, AMX, Winnov, and other manufacturers. A new Freeze-During-Preset function can be enabled to store and display a video still-frame during preset recall and camera movement to improve the viewer experience during rapid on-air moves or in single camera use.
Panasonic HN38H camera incorporates a highly-accurate pan-tilt head (with a pan of +/-175° and a tilt of -30° to 90°) that offers precise, fast, fluid movement in all directions, enabling the capture of both slow and fast-moving objects without excessive vibration and bounce. The cameras deliver many international HD signal formats including: 1080/59.94p/50p, 1080/59.94i/50i, 1080/29.97p/25p, 1080/29.97PsF/25PsF, and720/59.94p/50p.
Other key features include three-step gamma correction and seven-step chroma level adjustment for exceptional creative control, up to 100 pre-set memories for rapid and precise shot recall, an electronic shutter with synchro scan, and built-in tally light for remote studio use. The cameras' included ceiling mount attaches with a simple turn-lock mounting mechanism to facilitate quick and easy installation. The HN38H series cameras can also be used with Panasonic's cost-effective optional outdoor housings.
NDI version 3 has dramatically improved on an already simple workflow with SDK enhancements that improve encoding performance, multicast support with FEC (Forward Error Correction), standardized PTZ control commands and tally, and the addition of the High Efficiency Mode, NDI|HX, which allows hardware converters and cameras to enter the NDI world.
