From streaming a worship service or theatrical performance to broadcasting life sports, having a professional camera with exceptional low-light capabilities is critical when lighting conditions are not ideal or when lighting is intentionally subdued to create the ambiance of an environment.
Panasonic System Solutions Company of North American, Division of Panasonic Corporation of North America announced the addition of the AW-HE145 full HD integrated pan-tilt-zoom camera to its professional pan/tilt/zoom camera line-up. This innovative camera delivers broadcast-quality images, with flexible operation and compatibility with an array of Panasonic software solutions including the PTZ Control Center and AI-driven Auto Tracking.
Optimal for capturing content in low-light situations, the HE145 is equipped with a large 1-inch MOS sensor and optical 20x zoom to achieve superb sensitivity shooting even in dark scenes. The new camera delivers smooth “on-air” moves and supports HDR for capturing images with a high dynamic range. The camera’s 75.1-degree horizontal wide angle lens – one of the widest in its class — allows production staff to capture full shots in large spaces, including theaters, stadiums, lecture and symphony halls, and sanctuaries, and is invaluable for studios with limited spaces.
For video streaming applications, HE145 supports RTMP to allow direct upload of video to live-streaming services such as YouTube and Facebook Live. In addition, Secure Reliable Transport [SRT] is supported to maintain stability while transmitting high-quality video, even on unstable networks. Outputs include 3G-SDI, HDMI and IP for the flexibility to integrate with a variety of workflow infrastructures.
“The new HE145 camera is part of our growing and comprehensive line of PTZ camera solutions. It offers inventive features and the ability to perform exceptionally well in poorly-lit conditions,” said Jim Jensen, Category Owner, Remote Systems, Panasonic. “The HE145 is supported by our comprehensive PTZ camera ecosystem, which includes a wide range of software solutions, advanced robotic and prompter systems, and camera controllers.”
The AW-HE145 will be available in October at a suggested list price of $10,500.
