The Panasonic AW-HE50H HD Integrated PTZ Camera 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 AW-HE50H utilizes full HD MOS sensors (effective resolution 1920 x1080), Hybrid 2D/3D Noise Reduction processing, along with Panasonic's exclusive Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) technology 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 AW-HE50H is ideal for demanding applications such as HD videoconferencing, distance learning and traffic or weathercam use.
Panasonic's exclusive DRS function enables the AW-HE50H 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 incorporates a smooth and highly-accurate pan-tilt head that offers precise, fast, fluid movement in all directions, enabling the capture of both slow and fast-moving objects without the excessive vibration and "bounce" previously associated with small pan-tilt cameras. The AW-HE50H also provides very quiet operation, essential for use in videoconferencing rooms; insert studios and houses of worship.
