Here at INFOCOMM, Panasonic announced the development of the AW-UE150, a new 4K integrated remote camera that will offer 4K/UHD - 60p capture, a first for a broadcast-class PTZ. The UE150 will also afford the widest viewing angle (75.1 degrees, horizontal) in its class.
With an HDR mode, support of various 4K interfaces and simultaneous 4K/HD output, the UE150 will be targeted at higher-end applications in broadcast, production, corporate, events and staging, education, House of Worship and more.
The UE150 will incorporate a 1-inch large MOS sensor and 20X optical zoom, as well as seamless intelligent zoom (i Zoom). The 4K interfaces supported will include 12G-SDI, HDMI, optical fiber and IP.
“The UE150’s step-up in resolution, lensing and interfacing present a clear 4K upgrade path and a new generation of workflow for such premium PTZ applications as high-end enterprise, and broadcast/production applications,” said Delix Alex, Product Manager, Panasonic System Solutions Company. “This new class of PTZ camera will be introduced alongside the industry leading AW-HE130, giving users two different premium integrated PTZ camera selections with unique feature sets and applications.”
Panasonic has also announced a new remote camera controller, the AW-RP150, compatible with the UE150 as well as Panasonic’s higher-end PTZs and other remote cameras. The RP150 offers significant improvements over prior models, including a new one-hand operation joystick (controlling PTZ or Focus) and a large touch-panel LCD screen for monitoring and menu setting. The RP150 adds an SDI input to the LCD panel for camera monitoring.
Both the AW-UE150 and AW-RP150 are slated to be available in Winter 2018, with suggested list prices under $12,000 and $5,000, respectively.
