NewTek Releases AutoLink: Auto-connects to Panasonic PTZ Cameras

Panasonic and NewTek have announced NewTek AutoLink, a new software application which automatically detects the presence of IP cameras. Using the NewTek TriCaster and the IP Series Video Mix Engine, networked cameras become immediately available for use in video production without any additional configuration, saving valuable bandwidth and system resources.

NewTek AutoLink is PC based conversion software that allows camera control, NDI and streaming and is compatible with Panasonic PTZ cameras (AW-HE130, AW-HE40 and AW-UE70), as well as Panasonic’s studio camera systems and 4K box camera (AK-UB300).

There is no restriction on the number of IP cameras that can be connected, ready to take live into production. Video translation and transmission is only initiated when the camera source is selected.

NewTek AutoLink enables the user to manage orientation, zoom, focus and iris of supported cameras, and store and recall camera presets, directly from the user interface or a compatible controller.
