Panasonic has announced the new AW-HE130 camera incorporating recently-developed high-sensitivity, low-noise 1/3” 3-MOS imagers. The device is priced at $8,990.
The camera has some unique features such as Power over Ethernet+ (POE+) for easier integration, and multi-stream transmission of H.264 HD video and audio up to 1080/60p at 25Mbps.
New features in the HE130 are a 3G-SDI output (up to 1080/60p), stereo mic/line-level inputs for embedded and streaming audio.
It also has a night mode for hi-res, near IR video acquisition, an Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S), and IP-Live Preview for remote control and management of up to 16 cameras via Browser.
The camera has a signal to noise ratio of 60dB, 1000 TV lines of resolution, and 12-axis color correction and Panasonic’s exclusive DRS (Dynamic Range Stretch) and Hybrid Digital Noise Reduction.
The HE130 boasts the same 2.4 megapixel MOS imagers and Digital Signal Processor (DSP) used in Panasonic’s latest broadcast camcorder, AJ-PX270.
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 systems from Crestron, AMX, Winnov and other manufacturers.
Other features include native 24p and 30p output for teleproduction, iPro support for synergy with Panasonic’s security systems, digital access authentication, MAC/Android support for web monitoring, color adjustment by color temperature, and VISCA remote control support.
