Panasonic has added AI-based built-in auto tracking software to its AW-UE40, AW-UE50 and AW-UE80 PTZ cameras.
The firmware upgrade enables the cameras to both capture footage and actively participate in creating it, by maintaining framing in a variety of situations, said the company. The auto tracking can be controlled via Panasonic’s EasyIP software.
The technology is ideal for use in news studios, added Panasonic, as it enables users to capture all required content without the need for multiple operators to control the cameras.
Panasonic also offers its AW-SF100 and AW-SF200 advanced auto tracking software for filming multiple people, with facial recognition functionality available as an option, and human body detection. The software includes wide-angle and voice detection capabilities, enabling speakers to be detected if out of frame, said the company.
