Full HD camera with integrated pan-tilt for lectures, meetings and a wide variety of applications.
The Panasonic AW-HE40 series of integrated full HD cameras performs in a wide variety of onsite shooting applications that require high-quality video, such as conferences, lecture capture and other events, thanks to its high-performance zoom, wide angle of view and outstanding color reproducibility. In addition to IP video transmission, support for PoE+*1 enables power to be supplied via a LAN cable*2. The result is installation flexibility. It also supports HD-IP video output, output of video and audio via USB, and SD card recording.

Newly Developed 1/2.3-type MOS Sensor
Equipped with a newly developed 1/2.3-type MOS sensor and DSP (Digital Signal Processor) for high sensitivity and high resolution.

High Performance Optical 30x Zoom Lens/ Super Resolution 40x Zoom
In addition to a 30x optical zoom, the AW-HE40 series can zoom up to 40x while maintaining high resolution thanks to Super Resolution technology. It also features a 16x digital zoom*3 and a 1.4x digital extender, which enables the Panasonic AW-HE40 series to shoot in large
conference halls and classrooms.

Night Mode (supports automatic switching)
Switching to Night Mode makes shooting possible even in low light conditions in which shooting is normally difficult, such as when observing wildlife*4. The Panasonic AW-HE40 series can also be set to switch to the mode automatically depending on surrounding light levels.

Equipped with High Dynamic Range (HDR) Mode
In addition to conventional Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) and Digital Noise Reduction (DNR), the AW-HE40 is newly equipped with High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode. When shooting and synthesizing two images with differing exposure times, the AW-HE40 series can create video with high visibility that corrects for halation and black defects even under backlit conditions.

Outputs Still Image During Preset Movements; Supports One-Camera Operations
The new Freeze During Preset function enableds to freeze the video during preset playback. The immediately preceding still image is output during preset movements so that the swiveling movement is not displayed, making operations possible with one camera.
Either SDI Model or HDMI Model Can Be Selected To Match Usage Needs
Supports 1080/59.94p (HDMI model only), 29.97p*5, 59.94i, 29,97PsF, 1080/50p (HDMI model only), 25p*5, 50i, 25PsF, 720/59.94p, and 50p video formats. Flexible operation in line with the application is made possible by a lineup that includes an SDI output model (AW-HE40SW/SK), optimal for video content production, and an HDMI output model (AW-HE40HW/HK), optimal for video streaming, both of which come in two body colors (white and black) that can be selected depending on the usage environment.

Video/Audio Output with USB
USB Video Class and USB Audio Class are supported. This enables video and audio output via USB so the cameras can be used as high-image-quality Web cameras for Web conferencing, distance learning, and other applications utilizing communication software.

Audio Input Function
The Panasonic AW-HE40 series also supports audio input, embedding and encoding. Audio output to IP is also supported. The ALC (Audio Automatic Level Control) in the original AW-HE40 series can be switched ON/OFF and an equalizer function can be used. By reducing low-frequency sound from air conditioners, projectors, and other devices, it is possible to emphasize and increase the clarity of the spoken words.

microSD Card Recording Function
MicroSD card recording is upported. Camera video and audio can be recorded in MP4 format on microSD card (sold separately) inserted into the unit. In addition, using an IP network, it is possible to externally control recording start/stop and download the recorded files.


Full HD Video Output Via IP Transmission
In addition to HD-SDI and HDMI output, production quality full HD video output via IP transmission is supported. The camera delivers up to four channels of IP streaming video (H.264), with a maximum quality level of 1080/60p at 24 Mbps*1. Simultaneous transmission to as many as 14 devices is also supported*2. Flexible system setup is possible to meet various application needs.

Transmit IP Video Without a Separate Encoder Reduces Cost and Simplifies Installation
There is no need for the separate encoder normally required when streaming video and audio via IP. System can be built with exceptional cost/performance benefits.

Supporting PoE+*6 for Lower Installation Costs
By connecting network devices that support the IEEE802.3at PoE+ standard, power can be supplied via LAN cable. Since it is not necessary to install a power supply or even a local AC outlet, installation costs can be significantly reduced.

IP Control with Image Monitoring Using PC, Mac and Mobile Terminals
Using an IP browser, the camera can be controlled from a remote location, and IP video monitoring and remote camera control can be performed from a PC, Mac or mobile terminal such as an iPhone, iPad or Android device, enabling easy operations. IP video*7 can be
transmitted to up to 14 terminals*1.

Flexible IP Control Architecture Simplifies System Design and Operation*8
Up to 100 x AW-HE40 series cameras can be controlled via IP from a single AW-RP120G/RP50 or PC. An AW-HE40 series can also be simultaneously controlled by up to five AW-RP120G/RP50's via IP.

* 8: Controller upgrade required.

Exceptional Pan-tilt Performance for Smooth Shooting Over a Wide Area*1
The pan range of ±175° and the tilt range of -30° to +90° cover a wide shooting area*1. Pan and tilt operate at a maximum speed of 90°/second and respond quickly to remote control operation. They operate quietly at a sound level of NC35 or lower.

* 1. Depending on the position of the pan and tilt, the unit itself may be reflected in the image.
