The new AW-UE70 is claimed to be the industry’s first integrated Ultra HD pan/tilt/zoom camera. It delivers 3840×2160 resolution at 25p via HDMI, and is capable of UHD IP streaming and in-camera recording to a microSD card. It also delivers various HD formats including 1080 at 50p, 50i and 25p.
Features include genlock, optical image stabilisation, remote switchable ND filters, 3G-SDI; RS-422 and RS-232C I/O, and a built in web server. Browser control and IP-live preview, for up to 16 cameras, is possible from PCs, Macs and mobile devices.
Jaume Miro, product manager for Panasonic Remote Camera, said, “The camera’s flexible 4K/HD capabilities make it a good choice for broadcast as well as demanding installations in stadiums, conference rooms, auditoriums and events, where ultra-high resolution video and precise control are required.”
“Standard IP-control, built-in audio input and Power over Ethernet enables innovative single-cable installation. A USB webcam for videoconferencing and collaboration, a 20x zoom lens, preset functions and wide field of view (65.1°) mean the camera offers operational flexibility.”
The UE70’s Night Mode makes it possible to shoot in virtually total darkness, by automatically switching to HD monochrome video with the use of an optional IR illuminator. It has a pan of ±175° and a tilt of –30° to 90° and will be available in black or white next month.
