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.
1″ Sensor for Remarkable Video
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.
View the Entire Scene
Widest in its class, the 75.1-degree horizontal wide angle of the AW-UE150 gives you a phenomenal video range, allowing you to capture the full shot in theaters, stadiums & lecture halls, despite any installation space limitations you may encounter.
High-Quality 4K 60p Video Out
3840 x 2160 4K output and 59.94p shooting achieve extremely smooth video, even in live sports and other environments containing rapid movement.
High-Quality Video Output Formats
|4K UHD 16:9 (3840 x 2160)||59.94p, 50p, 29.97p**, 25p**, 24p**, 23.98p**|
|FULL HD 16:9 (1920 x 1080)||59.94p, 50p, 29.97p**, 29.97PsF, 25p**, 25PsF, 23.98p***, 24p**, 23.98p**, 23.98PsF, 59.94i, 50i|
|HD 16:9 (1280 x 720)||59.94p, 50p|
HDR (HLG) Support
The camera supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) to prevent blown-out highlights and blocked-up shadows and enable picture quality close to that of the naked eye. The color balance is shifted to display according to the BT.2020 color gamut.
Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) Loaded
Vibrations of the mounted surface caused by doors opening and closing, audio systems and other installed equipment are automatically corrected to ensure stable shooting.
Night Mode Support
Equipped with Night Mode for infrared shooting. The use of IR rays in low-light situations enables shooting in situations that would normally be difficult, such as when capturing wildlife (image output is black and white).
Incredible Pan and Tilt Performance
Pan and tilt operate from a minimum speed of 0.08°/s to a maximum of 180°/s in high-speed mode. This is approximately 3 times the speed of our current product for rapid capture of the intended target. Furthermore, a low noise level of NC35 or less has been ensured when operating in normal mode, which is perfect for shooting in quiet environments.
Images shot in 4K can be output in their entirety while simultaneously cropping parts of those images. The cropping position can be specified from a maximum of 3 locations to enable simple operation from the Remote Camera Controller AW-RP150, a web browser or other operations screen.
Multiple Interfaces Supported
A wide range of outputs are supported: 12G-SDI, 3G-SDI, HDMI, IP, and even Optical Fiber output. The addition of 4K/HD simultaneous output guarantees the right output for the operation at hand. 4K video can be down-converted to HD directly within the camera.
Fresh New Web Interface
Camera IP image output, settings, and control can be performed using a web browser on a computer connected via an IP network. In addition to PCs and Macs, iPads, iPhones, Androids and other mobile devices can be used for operation, and this pursuit of easy-to-use interfaces has enabled smooth camera control from remote locations.
Direct Broadcast via RTMP
RTMP (Real-Time Messaging Protocol) is supported to enable direct upload of video to live-streaming services such as YouTube Live and Facebook Live. This means a live stream can be broadcast directly from the camera.
Integrates into NDI Ecosystem
The AW-UE150W/K can be upgraded to an NDI|HX compatible model if purchasing a license. Highly efficient NDI|HX compatibility enables high-quality video to be encoded and transmitted in real-time and input signals to be directly sent to a switcher (such as the AV-HLC100 Stream Studio) without the need for an IP decoder.
Optimized for LED Stage Lights
With the increasing use of LED lights for production and stage lighting, an issue which keeps coming up is the over saturation of certain colors. To keep this under control and to provide accurate video image reproduction, the AW-UE150 has an “Adaptive Matrix” feature. When enabled, this function automatically controls matrix calculation coefficients, aiding in preventing blue channel clipping when capturing scenes with blue LED lights. This enables you to keep shooting in these environments while preventing color overload or high saturation, even during live events, in theaters and on stages with very strong blue LED lights.
IP connection from the Remote Camera Controller AW-RP150 through a HUB (switching hub) enables control of up to 200 AW-UE150W/K units. Furthermore, a single AW-UE150W/K unit can be controlled from up to 5 x AW-RP150 units.
Integrated Tally Light
The large tally light of the AW-UE150 can be disabled if preferred, but provides high-visibility for your on-screen talent when enabled, providing them an extra level of confidence when you’re broadcasting live. With the option to adjust the brightness of the tally light, you can make sure it fits into any environment the installation calls for. The main power indicator light can be turned off as well to put the camera in stealth mode.
