Includes: (3) Panasonic AW-HE50S Pan/Tilt Cameras, (1) Panasonic AW-HS50 Sub-Compact HD/SD Switcher.
The AW-HE50S with HD/SD-SDI and component outputs plus genlock features a sleek, compact design that combines outstanding image quality, smooth pan/tilt/zoom operation, and easy integration for superior HD and SD production and video communications. The camera utilizes full HD MOS sensors (effective resolution 1920 x1080), along with Panasonic's exclusive Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) technology and Hybrid 2D/3D Noise Reduction processing, to produce smooth, sharp HD video with up to 850 lines of horizontal resolution in a wide range of lighting conditions and environments. Equipped with both IP and RS-422 serial control interfaces built-in, the HE50S is a great choice for multi-camera systems and demanding applications such as television and cable production, sports video, A/V and conference facilities, houses of worship, and professional staging applications.
Panasonic's exclusive DRS function enables the HS50S to perform multi-zone digital image processing over a wide dynamic range for exceptional results in difficult, high contrast shooting conditions. Highlight over-saturation and blocking in dark areas are reduced for more detailed imaging through the application of real-time gamma and knee correction. The camera's innovative Hybrid Noise Reduction function reduces video grain and blur without appreciable image latency or loss of resolution, by intelligently combining 3D and 2D noise reduction algorithms. A new ?Flesh Tone? function also enables consistently accurate yet pleasing reproduction of live subjects.
The camera also incorporates a smooth and highly-accurate pan-tilt head that offers precise, fast, fluid movement in all directions, thereby enabling the capture of both slow and fast-moving objects without the excessive vibration and "bounce" previously associated with small pan-tilt cameras.
Over 850 lines of horizontal resolution and 54db S/N for production quality HD video
Supports 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 720/59.94p, 720/50p, 480/59.94i and 576/50i
Full HD CMOS imager and new DSP produces realistic video in varied lighting conditions down to 3 lux
18X HD optical zoom lens plus a 10X digital zoom for use in rooms of all sizes
Three-step gamma correction and seven-step chroma level adjustment for exceptional creative control
Up to 100 pre-set memories can be stored in the camera unit, for rapid and precise remote recall
An electronic shutter (1/100 to 1/10,000 a sec) with synchro scan
Built-in tally light for remote studio use
3.5-lb design, ceiling mounting bracket, and simple turn-lock mounting mechanism for quick, easy installation
Supports both IP and AW-series RS-422 serial control, as well as 3rd party serial control systems
The sub-compact, multi-format live HD/SD AW-HS50 switcher offers 10-bit processing, four HD/SD-SDI inputs and one HD DVI-D input, as well as a built-in MultiViewer, Chroma Keyer, Aux Bus, 1080/29.94PsF support, and more.
Ideal for mobile production, AV facilities, event video and more, the half-rack width HS50's built-in MultiViewer allows users to view four, nine, or 10 images on a single display-significantly reducing the cost, size, and weight of a complete HD production system. The adjustable MultiViewer outputs can also be used to provide a multi-image large-screen presentation display. Other advanced functions include dedicated hardware for picture-in-picture (PinP) with dissolve transitions, switchable upconversion, color correction, a chroma/linear keyer plus a downstream keyer (DSK), auto or manual video transitions, wipe and PinP preset memories, and frame memories.
As a key component in Panasonic's first complete Internet Protocol (IP) production system, the HS50 also offers an IP link to the new AW-RP50 remote camera controller. This link enables remote switching of the remote controlled camera video on the HS50's AUX bus, and other unique functions The AW-HS50 has built-in, switchable 10-bit frame synchronizers on each input, ensuring reliable, glitch-free switching even with non-synchronous sources such as remote camera feeds, small camcorders, and computer graphics.
The HS50 has four HD/SD-SDI inputs and one HD DVI-D input, two HD/SD-SDI outputs and one scalable DVI-D output. Additional standard features include an on-screen display (OSD) for viewing switcher settings, GPI input, camera tally outputs, an Ethernet control interface, 4-pin XLR 12VDC input, and an AUX Bus for a versatile production workflow.
