Key Features

Uncompromising shooting performance and operability

Optical low-pass filter significantly reduces moiré

Newly developed 4K sensor offering superior sensitivity

Significantly improved Autofocus advanced technology

SMPTE 2110 Support with purchase of additional software key

The AW-UE160 PTZ remote camera features a newly developed 4K 1” MOS sensor that offers even higher sensitivity versus other PTZ camera models within the Panasonic’s lineup. Production teams shooting in a concert venue or a church can easily capture clear images even in the most challenging lighting conditions. Meanwhile, the UE160’s new optical low pass filter reduces the effect of moiré for clearer picture quality when shooting against an LED wall, which is especially important for rental and staging or houses of worship environments. Its high-speed frame rate will help sports broadcasters capture slow motion shots in HD for replays, while seamless integration with the robotic camera system brings live broadcast-style movements to the PTZ, resulting in a dynamic and highly engaging video production.

 

The First SMPTE ST2110 Standard Compatible PTZ Camera

The AW-UE160 is the first PTZ Camera to support the SMPTE ST2110 standard for video transmission over IP networks (activation with software key AW-SFU60G, sold separately). By constructing an IP-based studio system in combination with the IT/IP platform “KAIROS” or AK-UC4000/AK-UCU600/AK-NP600, it is possible to improve the efficiency of your video production workflow.

Wide Range of Supported Protocols

High image quality and low latency with high bandwidth NDI® support

  • High bandwidth NDI® and high efficiency low bandwidth NDI®|HX, which encode and transmit high-quality video in real time, are included. High bandwidth NDI® transmits 4K video at a maximum of 250 Mbps and full HD video at a maximum of 125 Mbps, enabling high-quality, low-latency live video transmission.

 

SRT support for stable video transmission over public lines

  • SRT, a next-generation video transmission protocol with strong security suitable for unstable network environments, is supported.

 

Direct Broadcast via RTMP/RTMPS

  • RTMP/RTMPS is supported to enable direct upload of video to live-streaming services such as YouTube Live and Facebook Live. This means a live stream can be broadcast directly from the camera.

Flexible Installation & Mounting

The AW-UE160 PTZ camera is lightweight and compact enough for easy permanent or portable installs. It’s equipped with a turn lock mechanism for easy installation and comes standard with a safety cable for extra security and peace of mind.

  • Blend-in: The camera is exceptionally easy to integrate and is available in two colours (AW-UE160W: pearl white / AW-UE160K: black matte) to suit a wide range of applications.
  • Ceiling Mount: A twist-lock ceiling mount is included as a standard accessory.
  • Tripod Mount: The AW-UE160 is also equipped with a 1/4-20 tripod mounting screw receptacle and a safety lanyard for use with many mounting and grip systems.
