High Quality 4K 30P & FHD 60P Video Output.
1/2.3 Type CMOS Sensor.
The CR-N300 features a Canon 1/2.3-inch 4K UHD CMOS image sensor capable of 4K UHD video capture at 30p up to 60fps in Full HD, making the PTZ camera a strong contender for professional production.
DIGIC DV 6 Image Processor.
The CR-N300 PTZ camera incorporates Canon’s DIGIC DV 6 Image Processor, which is essential in providing high image quality, advanced performance and convenient operability. This advanced core technology component provides the image-processing power and speed that enables features such as 4K UHD video acquisition and precise Hybrid AF.
The CR-N300 is equipped with “Hybrid AF”. Hybrid AF is an auto focus system that combines high-precision contrast AF technology and the high-speed phase-difference AF technology to confirm auto focus from the camera. This hybrid auto focus system helps achieve auto focus faster and more reliably compared to contrast auto focus alone.
Canon 4K UHD Lens.
The CR-N300 features a 20x optical zoom lens and exhibits a wide viewing angle of 65.6 degrees** (horizontal). At the wide end, the 29.3 mm* lens is capable of capturing extensive scenes in tight shooting spaces such as indoor events for cinematic wide shots. The camera utilizes aspheric lens elements to achieve 4K image quality while minimizing various aberrations over the entire zoom range.
Furthermore, the lens structure of the CR-N300 enables real-time responsiveness in a three-dimensional space, supporting optical image stabilization, which helps keep the image capture stable by minimizing vibration.
Over Sampling HD Processing.
The full HD recording (over sampling HD processing) takes full advantage of the image information acquired by the 4K sensor to generate beautiful high-definition full HD video. This helps content creators produce stunningly detailed FHD video when utilizing the CR-N300.
Easy Integration Into IP Streaming.
In addition to SDI and HDMI connections, the CR-N300 is equipped with an RJ-45 interface purposed for IP communication, which supports high-resolution videos for distribution. The CR-N300 supports multiple protocols that can be utilized for video, audio and control. The genuine RC-IP100 controller utilizes the XC protocol to control the CR-N300. The CR-N300 can also be combined with third-party equipment for control purposes.* This IP system can contribute to an efficient and labor-saving camera operations for the field of video production, broadcasting and more.
IP Multi-Stream Support.
The CR-N300 can simultaneously distribute video to multiple protocols via IP. Simultaneous distribution is also known as multi-stream, and the CR-N300 can distribute a total of three video streams simultaneously. Furthermore, if the HDMI/SDI video output is 30 fps or less, the CR-N300 can distribute two video streams, 4K H.264 and 360P H.264, at the same time. Such IP multi-streams contribute to parallel workflows where the same video is used simultaneously in remote environments.
RTMP Streaming Protocol Supported.
The CR-N300 is capable of streaming video and audio using RTMP (Real-Time Messaging Protocol). Even high quality/large capacity video/audio files such as broadcast programs are played at the same time as distribution without waiting for the completion of download. For example, by using a live streaming service, the viewer’s direct access to the distribution URL set on the camera will stream the “current video” captured by the camera. With the RTMP streaming distribution, multiple viewers can watch the program at the same time even in a remote environment
NDI|HX Live Video Production Support Protocol.
The CR-N300 supports the NDI (Network Device Interface) protocol that is well-established in the field of video production and broadcasting as the supporting RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol). The NDI protocol has been developed and led by NewTek, Inc. as a protocol that supports the workflow of live video production over an IP network. By constructing a system that uses NDI protocol-compatible devices and tools, it is possible to use video and audio resources on the network, including live video from cameras. As a result, a “live video production” workflow is created.
Standard (VISCA) Protocol.
The CR-N300 supports the Standard (VISCA) Protocol as a protocol to remotely control the camera via IP. When connecting a Standard (VISCA) Protocol compatible remote controller to the camera over IP or serial (RS-422) the camera can be operated remotely and shooting settings can be adjusted by utilizing the remote controller.
The Standard (VISCA) Protocol is widely used in video production, broadcasting and many other markets. The CR-N300 supports the standard (VISCA) protocol that is regarded as an industry standard and is suitable for operation within existing workflows.
