​Panasonic PTZ Cameras Linked With NewTek NDI

NewTek has integrated its Network Device Interface into Panasonic AW-HE130 and AW-HE40 series PTZ cameras to stream H.264 video over IP to NDI-compatible systems and devices.

Panasonic says that when added and configured as production inputs using NewTek Connect Pro software, the AW-HE130 and AW-HE40 cameras become "recognizable on the LAN as NDI video sources".

The integration enables Panasonic video mixers, graphics systems, capture cards and other SDI production devices to be part of an interconnected production workflow.

With this integration, Panasonic PTZ cameras will not only stream video to and receive control commands from TriCaster, they will be recognized by other compatible systems and devices as NDI nodes, enabling access to their video feeds across the network and throughout facilities for production use.

Michael Bergeron, Panasonic Senior Business Development Manager said: “We were fortunate to begin work with NewTek last year, showing PTZ streaming directly to TriCaster, and this year IP innovation is a main theme for us. We’ve launched new streaming cameras, our new P2Cast Streaming Server, and at NAB2016, we showed a broadcast VoIP gateway prototype streaming 4K across the Central Hall. We are thrilled that our IP streaming cameras could work with NewTek so quickly: we can use NDI right out of the gate by utilizing the NewTek Connect Pro as a bridge.”

"The use of IP video promises to fundamentally change the way that we interact and work with video throughout the entire process from acquisition to delivery,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president of Business Development for NewTek. “Both Panasonic and NewTek are leaders in this space and by working together using NewTek NDI and NewTek Connect Pro software, we are truly excited to create an affordable broadcast camera IP solution immediately available for customers with multi-camera production workflows."
