Introducing the AW-HE130; a pan/tilt/zoom camera incorporating recently-developed high-sensitivity; low-noise 1/3″ 3-MOS imagers that produce stunning pictures; even in low light conditions. Revolutionary new features include Power over Ethernet+ (POE+) for easier integration; and multi-stream transmission of H.264 HD video and audio (up to 1080/60p at 25Mbps.) The HE130 adds many innovative features to Panasonic’s AW-HE120 PTZ; which has become the de facto standard remote control camera for educational; government; and house of worship use; and is likewise prevalent in news; staging; sports; and reality television production. Additional new features in the HE130 are a 3G-SDI output (up to 1080/60p); stereo mic/line-level inputs for embedded and streaming audio; a Night Mode for hi-res; near IR video acquisition (using an optional IR-illuminator in the 900nm range); an Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S); and IP-Live Preview for remote control and management of up to 16 cameras via Browser.
With an exceptional signal to noise ratio of 60dB (F8/2000lx; minimum illumination; 2.0 1x); 1000 TV lines of resolution; and such advanced features as 12-axis color correction and Panasonic’s exclusive DRS (Dynamic Range Stretch) and Hybrid Digital Noise Reduction; the HE130 continues to set performance standards for integrated pan-tilt cameras. The HE130 includes the same new three 2.4 megapixel MOS imagers and Digital Signal Processor (DSP) used in Panasonic’s latest broadcast camcorders; such as the AJ-PX270. Equipped with a fast F1.6 20X zoom lens plus a new high-res 1.4X digital extender; the compact HE130 is ideally matched to demanding applications in sports; rental/staging; news; and business and institutional video.
Standard professional interfaces include HD/SD-SDI; HDMI; and SD composite; as well as 3G-SDI for single cable delivery of high-quality content up to 1080/60p. In addition to continuing RS-422 serial compatibility with controllers designed for use with previous generations of Panasonic remote camera systems; the HE130 supports both direct and Web-based IP remote control. Direct IP or serial control is possible using Panasonic’s AW-RP50N and AW-RP120; as well as appropriately programmed systems from Crestron; AMX; Winnov; and other manufacturers. In addition; the camera’s built-in Web-server enables secure control; live preview; and setup from browser-equipped PCs-anywhere in the world.
Streaming video output is available from the HE130 in several forms and formats; and at a wide range of transmission speeds. For remote production and video acquisition; four simultaneous streams are available in either H.264 or JPEG. Video resolutions of up to 1080/60p are available at rates of up to 25Mbps. For IP-Live remote monitoring and control; up to 16 cameras may be viewed simultaneously in a single Browser window; with extensive onscreen camera controls available when a single camera is selected for viewing.
