Full HD Remote Camera with Built-in Network Device Interface (NDIIHX) Support
What is NDI?
NDI (Network Digital Interface) technology has been developed by NewTek, it is made available to anyone with a royalty-free license, and has been widely adopted by many broadcast vendors. NDI revolutionizes video production workflow by removing the physical I/O constraints of traditional broadcast infrastructure. Any NDI-enabled device on the network can see and access content from all other devices, allowing more sources than ever before to be used for live production.
What is the specification of NDI|HX?
NDI is designed to run over existing 1 Gigabit networks, allowing easy adoption of the protocol without new infrastructure. This is achieved through the use of video compression with the NDI|HX codec, which delivers 1080 Full HD video at data rates typically around 15Mbps. NDI|HX is a 4:2:0 8-bit codec, based on H.264 compression. It supports 1080p and 720p, at different frame rates. Factory default mode is 1080/25p at 10Mbps.
Excellent HD images via HDMI, USB and IP, plus HD via 3G-SDI
The highly sensitive camera is equipped with three newly developed 1/2.86-type MOS sensors, allowing for high-grade filming even in low light conditions, also offering a superior S/N ratio and high resolution. In addition to 3G-SDI and HDMI output, production quality full HD video output via IP transmission is supported by the AW-HN130. The camera delivers up to four channels of IP streaming video (H.264), with configuration levels of the quality level.
In addition to a sharp, fast F1,6, 20x optical zoom lens, the AW-HN130 is equipped with an innovative 1,4x digital extender that can increase the effective focal length of the lens by 40% while delivering smooth, high-resolution video. The new built-in Optical Image Stabilization System (OIS) automatically minimizes the effect of small vibrations from the surface where the camera is mounted caused; whether this is caused by the opening and closing of doors, nearby speakers, or other disturbances.
Thanks to a highly evolved pan-tilt design, the AW-HN130 achieves smoother and more natural movement during on-air shots. The pan-tilt head also has a wide shooting range, with a pan range of ±175° and a tilt range of -30° to 210°. The newly developed pan tilt drive provides high-speed operation at maximum 60°/s, excellent response to remote control operation, and highly precise stop control. These features combine to accurately capture fast-action sports scenes or smooth concert footage. The noise level during operation is also very low, at NC35 or less, which is ideal for use in quiet environments.
Video Outputs: Standard professional interfaces include HD/SD-SDI, HDMI, and SD composite, as well as IP/Network for single cable delivery of high-quality content up to 1080/60p.
Serial Control: RS-422 serial compatibility is available for serial-based control workflows (i.e. connection to AW-RP50/120 or previous controllers). RS-232 and RS-422 VISCA protocols are available when introducing a Panasonic camera into an existing control structure.
Network Connected | The LAN port on the HN130 unleashes the possibilities:
- Power of Ethernet+ (PoE+) for easier system installation and setup.
- Control the camera via the network with an AW-RP50/120 hardware controller or Panasonic software solutions
- Access the built-in web interface to monitor and control all aspects of the camera
- Utilize a supported third-party control system from broadcast control systems, switchers, lecture capture systems, AV Control system and more
- By default, the camera has a built-in H.264/MJPEG encoder for 7 channels of encoding up to 25Mbps. Pair with a supported hardware or software decoder.
- Built-in NDI|HX (a technology of NewTek Inc.) for the ultimate single cable production workflow with ultra-low latency video, audio, control, tally, and power over a single cable
