In the time of the pandemic, live streaming is the default choice for many events. That said, if you are seeking to stream an event, be it a theatrical performance or a live sporting event, Panasonic HD Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera (AW-HE145) will have you covered.
Well, “covered” only if you are a business looking at streaming because the Panasonic AW-HE145 HD Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera does not come cheap. It will run you back at a cool US$10,500. Obviously, it is not for everyday folks.
For the five-figure sum, you get broadcast-quality images – even in low-light, with flexible operation and compatibility with a myriad of Panasonic software solutions, including PTZ Control Center and AI-driven Auto Tracking.
The camera is outfitted with a large 1-inch MOS sensor paired to a 75.1-degree horizontal wide-angle lens for capturing wide spaces like stadiums, theater storage, and more, and it further boasts an optical 20x zoom. The sensor is able to shoot dark scenes, thanks to its high sensitivity (f9/2000).
Finally, the camera supports RTMP to enable direct upload of video to live-streaming services, including YouTube and Facebook Live. In addition, multiple output options ensure the flexibility of integrating with a range of workflow infrastructures.
As far as streaming goes, Secure Reliable Transport or SRT ensures stability in transmission even over unstable networks.
The Panasonic HD Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera will arrive in October for the aforementioned US$10,500. Meanwhile, you may learn more about this fabulous professional streaming camera HERE.
