AW-HE130 Network Camera

Introducing the AW-HE130, a pan/tilt/zoom camera incorporating recently-developed high-sensitivity, low-noise 1/3" 3-MOS imagers that produce stunning pictures, even in low light conditions. Revolutionary new features include Power over Ethernet+ (POE+) for easier integration, and multi-stream transmission of H.264 HD video and audio (up to 1080/60p at 25Mbps.) 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. Additional new features in the HE130 are a 3G-SDI output (up to 1080/60p); stereo mic/line-level inputs for embedded and streaming audio; a Night Mode for hi-res, near IR video acquisition (using an optional IR-illuminator in the 900nm range); an Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S); and IP-Live Preview for remote control and management of up to 16 cameras via Browser.

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 color 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.
