The flagship in our remote camera range is the AW-HE130, which includes a newly-developed 3MOS sensor allowing for Full-HD quality images in low-light conditions, up to four channels of IP streaming video, a 20x optical zoom and a built-in Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) system which minimises the effect of vibrations from the surface where the camera is mounted.
We have also introduced the AW-HR140, which offers the same image quality as the AW-HE130 but includes features that supports use in the toughest of outdoor environments including haze reduction functionality, resistance to wind pressure and severe salt damage, a lens wiper that can be controlled via a controller and the ability to work in temperatures ranging from -15°C to 55°C.
Our UHD (4K) remote camera offering currently consists of the AW-UE70, which provides UHD-quality video via HDMI, USB and LAN. Besides this capability, the camera performs extremely well in HD via 3G-SDI, in addition to featuring a 20x optical zoom and in-camera recording via a microSD card slot, with both UHD (4K) and HD formats supported.
The AW-HE40 comes in both a 3G-SDI and HDMI version, and features a 30x optical zoom, a night mode that supports shooting in low-light conditions, a High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode and an exceptional pan-tilt performance that supports smooth shooting across a wide area.
A unique feature of the cameras listed above is that they all support single cable operation whereby video and audio, control and power can all be provided via a single CAT5 cable thanks to their Power over Ethernet (PoE +) feature, making for significant ease of installation. In addition, the listed cameras can also support our auto-tracking software (AW-SF100) which assists automatic tracking of a person and suits both education and video conferencing environments, and these cameras come in a colour option of both black and white.
The AW-HE2 is an excellent low-cost, fixed-position camera with a wide-angle lens of 95° and a built-in microphone, all within an ultra-compact body and whilst also having the ability to be controlled via IP.
Panasonic has partnered with a range of companies to support additional application within its remote camera line-up. For example our collaboration with KST-Moschkau has provided an outdoor housing solution for the AW-UE70 and the AW-HE40 in addition to wall mounts for these cameras and the AW-HE130. The robotic arm UR10 from AR+ can be used with our remote cam models and our 4K multi purpose camera AK-UB300.
Our entire remote camera line-up can then be controlled via the compact, easy-to-operate AW-RP50 controller and the functional AW-RP120 that includes a joystick and additional operating enhancements. Both controllers allow up to 5 remote cameras to be controlled via serial, and up to 100 cameras via a switching hub.
