Panasonic launches ultra-wide angle PTZ at InfoComm 2019

Panasonic Business has announced the latest addition to its PTZ camera range at InfoComm 2019, with the brand new AW-UE4 set to enhance the flexibility and usability of filming solutions for AV professionals.

In celebration of the ten year anniversary of Panasonic’s PTZ camera range, the AW-UE4WG/KG has been revealed as the successor to the popular AW-HE2 remote camera, offering upgraded features which include 4K resolution and an ultra-wide viewing angle of 111 degrees.

This is set to improve the flexibility of filming across a variety of applications, with corner to corner wide-angle videos improving the quality of filming, even in the most limited of installation spaces.

In addition, the camera offers a 1/2.5-type 8M pixels single sensor to capture ultra-high quality 4K 3840 x 2160 resolution images, and supports a variety of video formats with 30p/29.97p/25p.

Equally it provides a high level of connectivity with three video output terminals of HDMI, LAN and USB connectivity, alongside RTSP/RTMP support for direct live streaming to major platforms such as YouTube. The camera can also be powered via USB cable, enabling a single cable solution for video transmission, camera control and power supply over a LAN or USB.

The compact design and high quality feature set makes this camera well suited for application in small classrooms, meeting rooms and live events.

“The AW-UE4 was designed with professional AV in mind, featuring an ultra-wide viewing angle for flexible installation in a variety of spaces,” said Andre Meterian, Director Professional Video Systems Business Unit EMEA at Panasonic. “With the addition of 4K content, high quality connectivity, and the option to directly upload videos to live streaming services, we feel the AW-UE4 is testament to our continuous innovation that secures our market leading position in the PTZ sector.”

The AK-UE4 is set for release in October 2019.
