Panasonic Introduces Ultra-Wide-Angle Lens PTZ Camera

Panasonic has announced the immediate availability of the ultra-wide-angle lens AW-UE4 compact 4K pan/tilt/zoom camera.

With a 111° field of view and capable of video output through three interfaces (HDMI, LAN and USB), the unit targets corporate huddle spaces, lectures/meeting rooms and e-sports production.

Designed with a single cable solution for video transmission, camera control and power supply, the camera supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) and can be used as a USB camera powered from a computer. The UE4 has RTMP (Real-Time Messaging Protocol) compatibility for direct upload of video to live-streaming services such as YouTube Live and Facebook Live.

It supports 3840x2160/30p 4K video output and a variety of other formats. Panasonic says its ultra-wide-angle lens allows capture of every part of even the largest spaces and the transmission of wide-angle footage from even the smallest installation spaces.

The UE4 is equipped with a digital zoom for magni­fication up to four times to capture distant subjects clearly. Expanded images can also be manipulated for pan and tilt-like effects to capture images from a variety of angles.
