The Panasonic AW-HE38 20x Zoom HDMI PTZ Camera with NDI is a compact full HD camera integrated with a pan-tilt head and featuring a 1/2.3-type MOS sensor and digital signal processor (DSP). In addition to its optical 22x zoom lens, the camera comes with a 16x digital zoom allowing you to capture high-quality images that overflow with ambiance. Using i.Zoom allows up to 30x zoom while maintaining full HD quality. When the camera is connected to a computer via an IP LAN network, it can be operated via a web browser while viewing the camera images on the screen.
Enter the World of P.T.Z.
The AW-HE38 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, HE38 cameras are 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 HE38 also offers the flexibility needed for easy installation and management.
20x Optical Zoom
In addition to 22x optical zoom, the AW-HE38 also features intelligent zoom up to 30x and a 1.4x digital extender to capture crisp close-ups even in large auditoriums and lecture halls. The HE38 delivers an impressive signal-to-noise ratio of 54dB (F4/2000lx, minimum illumination, .35 lx), 1000 TV lines of resolution and 16-axis color matrix control for precise camera “painting” and matching. The HE38 already includes many innovative standard features developed to expand the capabilities of professional video system users. In addition to Panasonic's Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) and advanced Digital Noise Reduction (DNR), an ingenious High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode helps to produce very good video even in extreme contrast and lighting conditions.
See in the Dark
For shooting in virtually total darkness, the HE38's Night Mode makes it possible to automatically switch to the capture of high-quality, HD monochrome video with the use of an (optional) IR illuminator in the 850nm range, making the camera ideal for reality show production, sleep lab research and staging support.
Versatile, Smooth & Lightweight
The pan range of ±175° and the tilt range of -30° to +90° cover a wide shooting area. Pan and tilt operate at a maximum speed of 90°/second and respond quickly to remote control operation. They operate quietly at a sound level of NC35 or lower. Up to 100 preset positions and camera settings are stored in the camera, more than enough for the most demanding large venue installation. The camera weighs only 3.3 lbs. and consumes just over 14.4 watts at 12 VDC.
Video Outputs: Standard professional interfaces include HDMI, as well as IP/Network for single cable delivery of high-quality content up to 1080/60p.
