A New Level of PTZ Camera Performance
Introducing the AW-UE150, a new 4K integrated Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) remote camera that offers 4K/UHD 60p capture, a first in its broadcast-camera class. The UE150 also affords the widest viewing angle (75.1 degrees, horizontal), which currently is the widest in its class. With an HDR mode, support of various 4K interfaces and simultaneous 4K/HD output, the AW-UE150 is the perfect remote camera for higher-end applications in broadcast, production, corporate, events & staging, education, House of Worship and more.
The AW-UE150 incorporates a 1-inch large MOS sensor and 20X optical zoom, along with seamless Intelligent Zoom (iZoom). The 4K interfaces supported include 12G-SDI, HDMI, optical fiber, and IP. The UE150 features a larger tally light for more effective on-air indication where needed, as well as a modern, bold new design.
The large 1 inch MOS sensor enables high sensitivity shooting with low noise. The sensor boasts a light-capturing area that is approximately four times larger than that of the 1/2.3-type sensor to guarantee a wide dynamic range. Combined with our intelligent imaging functions, the AW-UE150 brings image quality never before seen in a PTZ camera.
V-LOG Output Support
The AW-UE150 is the first robotic PTZ camera in the world to incorporate support for V-LOG video output, a key feature of high-end cinema cameras such as the VariCam. The ability for the UE150 to output in a LOG format opens up a wide-range of video production possibilities. The wide dynamic range and color gamut provide images suitable for color grading, helping to facilitate a consistent video look and enabling color matching with the Netflix approved VariCam cinema cameras and the AK-UC4000 broadcast camera system.
The robotic camera’s V-LOG output mode enables the LOG-profile video to be output via 12G-SDI, 3G-SDI, monitor out, and HDMI. Additionally, two types of settings, V-LOG and V-709, can be selected independently per output interface. This allows 4K V-LOG video for color grading to be simultaneously output with full-HD V-709 video for on-site camera monitoring.
