About Panasonic AW-HE120

The Panasonic AW-HE120 HD/SD Pan/Tilt/Zoom Camera (Black) delivers the highest image quality of any integrated pan/tilt/zoom camera. Featuring a fast 20x zoom lens and a three 2.2 megapixel U.L.T. MOS imagers supporting Full HD video capture, the compact HE120 produces excellent video in a wide range of shooting conditions.

Ideally suited for such demanding applications as sports, staging, House of Worship, news and government video, the HE120 is equipped with the same high-performance sensors and digital signal processing used in Panasonic broadcast camcorders such as the AG-HPX370. With a 1000 TV lines of resolution and a 60dB signal-to-noise ratio, the HE120 sets a new performance standard for integrated PTZ cameras, with advanced features as 16-axis color correction and Panasonic's exclusive DRS (Dynamic Range Stretch). HD-SD/SDI, HDMI, Analog Component and SD Composite outputs are all built-in, for out-of-the-box ease of deployment.

The camera's 20x optical zoom lens covers an extended range of shooting situations, from small room wide-angle to back of the house ultra-telephoto, with 35mm equivalents of 32.1 mm at wide-angle to 642.5 mm at telephoto. Remote controlled neutral density filters, DRS, shutter and other functions enable optimal exposure for a wide range of shooting conditions. The camera's fast, quiet integrated pan-tilt head covers a wide range of motion, with a pan range of ±175deg. and a tilt of -30deg. to 210deg.

The AW-HE120 supports both RS-422 serial control and IP control with dedicated RJ-45 connectors. It is compatible with current Panasonic controllers such as the AW-RP655 and AW-HS50 and with many serial and IP control systems from Crestron, AMX and other vendors. The AW-HE120 supports both direct and Web-based IP remote control, so the camera can be securely operated and adjusted remotely from an ordinary browser-equipped PC-anywhere in the world.

Church Installation


from Durham, NC  -  Power User

Camera performed as expected. Complex options allow one to tailor the image to taste, but will require past knowledge or a commitment to study the manual. The reach of the zoom is awesome as is the image quality. Currntly being used in an interim stage of S-video. Will transition to HD when we install new switcher. First use of SDI so needed a converter (blackmagic) to get to and analog signal. PTZ fuctions are quiet and precise.
