The AW-HE42 3G-SDI/HDMI/IP PTZ Camera with 20x Optical Zoom from Panasonic provides a variety of options for your conference room, house of worship, or education locations that require high-quality 1080p video output and recording. The camera features a 1/2.3″ MOS sensor, HDMI and 3G-SDI outputs, RJ45 LAN streaming support, USB video and image output, mic/line audio input, SD card recording, and serial control. When connected to the Internet, this IP camera allows you to control PTZ actions and monitor the surveillance area from a remote location via a Web browser. This provides you with several advantages like reduced integration costs, easy remote production and engineering, and lower cost for multiple location systems.
Equipped with a 4.1 to 81.6mm zoom lens (35mm equivalent zoom of 29.5 to 612mm), 20x optical zoom, and 30x digital zoom, this PTZ camera enables you to zoom in on activity in the monitoring area for a closer look. Other features include auto white balance, RS-232/RS-422 serial control, genlock input, 175° panning range, -30 to 90° tilt range, MP4 file format, AVC/H.264 video compression, RTSP/RTMP streaming, AAC-LC audio compression, and a built-in 4-stage ND filter system.
The Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) minimizes blocked shadows and blown highlights, and it uses Night Mode to capture clear images in monochrome. The camera supports mic and line audio input, allowing you to capture and embed audio within the video signal. It is also PoE+ compatible, allowing you to power the unit using only the single LAN cable rather than adding additional power adapter cables. An optional Auto-Tracking software upgrade allows the camera to utilize facial recognition technology for face tracking and body detection so the camera will follow the subject around the room automatically.
