The RP150 is considered the flagship camera controller in the series because to its several sophisticated capabilities, making it an optimal companion for the AW-UE150 PRO PTZ performance camera model.
High-Performance PTZ Camera
The AW-UE160 PTZ camera is equipped with a rear panel tally lamp, two XLR audio output channels, and return input and high-speed shooting capabilities. These features are crucial for the integration of the camera into a combined system with a system camera. This particular remote camera holds the distinction of being the initial device to provide compatibility for SMPTE ST2110, as well as functioning as a 5G router that is compatible with USB tethering. The autonomous positioning and adjustable attributes of the remote camera, in conjunction with its capabilities akin to those of traditional system cameras, enable the creation of distinctive and innovative visual representations.
The AW-UE160 camera has several output options including 12G-SDI, optical fiber, HDMI, 3G-SDI, and IP connectivity. The audio input is received through two XLR channels. The selection of the output method may be tailored to accommodate the specific operation, hence facilitating the integration of the technique into an already established imaging system or the development of a solution customized for a particular location. The video output mechanism remains unhindered even when transmitting from many terminals, enabling concurrent 4K functionality. As an example, a system may consist of three main lines, namely 12G-SDI, with one line designated for confirmation (3G-SDI OUT1) and another line intended for monitor display (3G-SDI OUT2).
Image Processing Engine
The AW-UE160 PTZ camera utilizes the image processing engine of the LUMIX GH6, which is characterized by enhanced computational capabilities. The image data obtained from the MOS sensor of the 1-type (1") with an effective size, which effectively manages depth of field, picture quality, and sensitivity, undergoes rapid processing to enhance the signal-to-noise ratio. The advancements in computational speed and improved algorithms for autofocus have led to significant enhancements in subject detection. These developments have enabled the correct identification of subjects by effectively differentiating their movements and features. The combination of high video processing performance, resolution, sensitivity, and color reproduction enables the development of creative video content while maintaining a strong commitment to preserving the integrity of the visual imagery.
Phase Detection Autofocus
The AF system of the AW-innovative UE160 integrates both phase detection and contrast AF (contrast detection) techniques. The PTZ camera possesses the capability to effectively follow and acquire in-focus photographs, owing to its rapid focusing speed and exceptional precision, regardless of whether it is focused on a dynamic subject or many subjects simultaneously.
AR/VR Positioning with FreeD Protocol
In order to effectively utilize virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) studio sets in live productions, it is imperative to have precise camera location data. The FreeD protocol facilitates the transmission of Pan/Tilt/Zoom/Iris data from the AW-UE160 camera to a tracking system over both Serial (RS 422) and IP (UDP) communication channels. Several virtual set systems, such as Brainstorm, Ross UX XPERIENCE / Xpression, The Future Group Pixotope, Vizrt Viz Virtual Studio, and Zero Density, are compatible with the FreeD protocol. The integration of robotic camera systems into virtual studios/sets without encoders is made possible by the utilization of the UE160's FreeD command.
The Panasonic AW-UE160 camera incorporates an integrated optical low pass filter (OLPF). This particular characteristic effectively mitigates the problem of moiré, a significant concern commonly associated with widely-used LED display panels. Moiré refers to the perceptual phenomenon arising from the interaction between the light emitted by an image and the blackness of the gaps between light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The optical optical low-pass filter (OLPF) function effectively attenuates high-frequency content while simultaneously enhancing the overall smoothness of the video output, so contributing to the production of high-quality visual content.
The F14/2000 lx camera possesses a notable level of sensitivity, enabling it to capture high-quality and visually clear images of subjects in motion inside low-light environments, such as poorly lit stages and live settings. The sensitivity setting is contingent upon the specific circumstances and geographical context. The two lighting conditions under consideration are normal lighting and low lighting.
