Pro-Level Optical Quality
The P200 is a seriously reliable, functional, and pro-level camera that stands as a go-to for many image-makers requiring a full PTZ optical system. The combination of the Sony 1/2.8" CMOS backlit 2.13MP image sensor and the BirdDog custom NDI chip, are further backed up by lightning-fast autofocus and quick-action 30x optical zoom. This ensures broadcast-quality visuals, even when following fast moving subjects at a sporting event. It is an incredibly versatile PTZ camera that is available in various different kits to suit your individual needs. Same-time live SDI, HDMI, full NDI, and CVBS outputs, true WDR 130 dB, and 128 presets at 150°/sec are just some of the many features of this P200 camera system. The clear emphasis being on image quality and colour rendition.
Game Changing NDI
NDI (Network Device Interface) is a variable bit rate iFrame codec, capable of 140 Mb/s at 1080p60. It is also a visually lossless connection, which is quite rare for PTZ camera systems as they stereotypically take from security cameras with NDI|HX - a compressed, long-GOP, H.264 variant reaching 12Mb/s at 1080p60. To simplify, this means that you are provided with broadcast-quality visuals from this smart little PTZ system. The P200 is further capable of simultaneous NDI and SDI outputs for live recording within a full NDI workflow. This makes the P200 a truly futureproof PTZ camera, as you can still utilise an SDI workflow controlled via RS422, RS485, and RS232 - before converting to NDI when you are ready.
Capture the Action from Every Angle
Due to the P200's lightning-fast autofocus and quick-action 30x optical zoom, this camera system is ideally suited to large indoor stadiums, theatre stages, and places of worship. It has the ability to follow all of the action at the football, basketball, netball, gymnastics and more - with a bag of compatible mounting screws to ensure an easy setup. This means that you can mount your multiple P200s in areas where it would not be viable for a camera operator to stand. By doing so, it means that you can easily record and even live-stream games at a professional level as seen on TV; with further access to 128 camera presets at up to 150°/sec. You can even store up to six presets within the included remote control to replicate sharp, smart, and smooth camera movements. With three P200 cameras, you provide the audience with more of a dynamic viewing experience with heightened production values.
World-Class Pairing with the PTZ Keyboard
The BirdDog PTZ Keyboard controller pairs perfectly with the P200. You are granted full control of your camera functions remotely, with the controller having the capacity to control up to 255 PTZ cameras on a single network. That's right, 225. It can even scale to match the most complex installations, controlling your multiple P200 setup over either NDI or by RS422 / RS232 when utilising SDI mode.
