Pan/tilt/zoom camera incorporating high-sensitivity, low-noise 1/3" 3-MOS imager that produces stunning pictures, even in low light conditions. Features Power over Ethernet+ (POE+) for easier integration and multi-stream transmission of H.264 HD video and audio (up to 1080/60p at 25 Mbps). The HE130 adds many innovative features to Panasonic's AW-HE120 PTZ, which has become the de facto standard remote control camera for educational, government and house of worship use, and is likewise prevalent in news, staging, sports, and reality television production.
With an exceptional signal to noise ratio of 60dB (F8/2000lx, minimum illumination: 2.0 1x), 1000 TV lines of resolution and such advanced features as 12-axis colour correction and Panasonic's exclusive DRS (Dynamic Range Stretch) and Hybrid Digital Noise Reduction, the HE130 continues to set performance standards for integrated pan-tilt cameras. The HE130 includes the same new three 2.4 megapixel MOS imagers and Digital Signal Processor (DSP) used in Panasonic's latest broadcast camcorders, such as the AJ-PX270. Equipped with a fast F1.6 20X zoom lens plus a new high-res 1.4X digital extender, the compact HE130 is ideally matched to demanding applications in sports, rental/staging, news, and business and institutional video.
Standard professional interfaces include HD/SD-SDI, HDMI, and SD composite, as well as 3G-SDI for single cable delivery of high-quality content up to 1080/60p. In addition to continuing RS-422 serial compatibility with controllers designed for use with previous generations of Panasonic remote camera systems, the HE130 supports both direct and Web-based IP remote control. Direct IP or serial control is possible using Panasonic's AW-RP50N and AW-RP120, as well as appropriately programmed systems from Crestron, AMX, Winnov, and other manufacturers. In addition, the camera's built-in Web-server enables secure control, live preview, and setup from browser-equipped PCs-anywhere in the world.
Streaming video output is available from the HE130 in several forms and formats, and at a wide range of transmission speeds. For remote production and video acquisition, four simultaneous streams are available in either H.264 or JPEG. Video resolutions of up to 1080/60p are available at rates of up to 25 Mbps. For IP-Live remote monitoring and control, up to 16 cameras may be viewed simultaneously in a single Browser window, with extensive onscreen camera controls available when a single camera is selected for viewing.
The HE130's optical zoom lens covers an extended range of shooting situations, from wide-angle to ultra-telephoto, with 35 mm equivalents of 32.1 mm at the wide-angle end to 642.5 mm at the telephoto. The built-in remote-controllable four-position ND filter (clear, 1/8, 1/64, IR thru) facilitates flexible exposure control in brightly lit shooting situations.
The camera is exceptionally easy to integrate, and is available in two colors (-W: pearl white, and -K, black matte metallic) to suit a wide range of applications. A twist-lock ceiling mount is included as a standard accessory, and the HE130 is also equipped with a 1/4-20 tripod mounting screw receptacle and a safety lanyard for use with many mounting and grip systems. An optional heavy-duty wall mount is available in either black (FEC-120WMK) or white (FEC-120WMW).
