4K resolution, wide angle and high-magnification zoom
The high-quality images captured by the 4K, wide-angle camera clearly show the ambiences of classrooms and halls as well as the facial expressions of teachers and speakers on the podiums, thus conveying the ambiences and atmospheres through the streaming videos. Furthermore, the zoom function clearly captures the important points on a slide or blackboard for easy-to-understand classroom lessons or business presentations. By utilizing the wide angle of up to 74.1 Degree and the zoom function, it is possible to prevent missing important scenes in classroom teaching or business meeting with a small number of camera units. The AW-UE50 can be used for a wide range of applications regardless of the size of the room or hall.
Auto Tracking Software for reliable following and capturing of the speaker
The AW-UE50 supports Panasonic AW-SF100/AW-SF200 Auto Tracking Software, so the camera can follow and capture the presenter/teacher moving around on the podium while talking. Since the software performs the camerawork to follow the speaker without the supervisor’s detailed camera operation, realistic scenes can be recorded at all times.
Secure and stable streaming protocol for reduced risk of communication trouble
The AW-UE50 supports SRT, a next-generation video transport protocol which works well even with an unstable network environment and which provides robust security. It can also minimize risks such as information leakage, so it can be used safely for any video content.
Smooth playback of high-image-quality video
The AW-UE50 can be upgraded to support NDI|HX version 2 that can transmit high-quality video via IP. NDI|HX version 2 achieves efficient video transmission with a limited bandwidth. Since the video source is accessible from any devices on the same network, even devices with unknown IP addresses are automatically recognized. This allows for a flexible video production flow at the shooting site.
Quiet enough to allow use in any places and for any applications
Since the AW-UE50 operates very quietly, it can be used in a meeting held in a noiseless conference hall or in a class held in a spacious lecture room without worrying about the operating sound of the camera unit. The new direct-drive motor is quiet during panning (horizontal movement) and tilting (vertical movement) so the camera operation does not interfere with important meetings and lectures.
Image stabilizer for stable video shooting
Even when the camera unit is mounted on an unstable place, the image stabilizer always assures clear images. The Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) makes fine adjustment of the lens by smoothly moving the camera unit, thus minimizing image shakes and capturing stable, high-quality images.
Easy to install and operate
The AW-UE50 can be connected to video devices via network, so a single LAN cable can transmit the video, audio and control signals as well as the power supply. This not only minimizes the risk of wiring trouble, but also contributes to the reduction of the time and effort for setting up and removing the equipment. Furthermore, the AW-UE50 can reduce the labor expenses in video shooting because a single Panasonic remote camera controller can control up to 200 camera units. The AW-UE50 can be operated from a joystick-equipped remote camera controller, infrared remote controller or PC, so even people unfamiliar with the equipment operation can easily operate the AW-UE50.
Single PC or controller can manage and control multiple cameras
By using the free software, PTZ Control Center, or by connecting a Panasonic remote camera controller, multiple PTZ camera units can be controlled all at once from the single controller for easy management and control.
Use as a USB camera
The AW-UE50 supports UVC so it can be used with an existing USB-based system. A single LAN cable can be used to connect multiple camera units to a PC, allowing wire-saving installation and configuration of a simple and compact system. By using the free software, PTZ Virtual USB Driver, the AW-UE50 can be used as a Web camera linkable to an online conference service via LAN cable even when the USB cable cannot reach the camera installation location such as a ceiling.
Direct upload of videos to video livestreaming services
The AW-UE50 supports RTMP/RTMPS to enable direct upload of videos to video livestreaming services such as YouTube and Facebook Live. A video can be uploaded directly from the camera unit for a direct video streaming.
