The new 4K PTZ cameras – P4K and P400 – by BirdDog are now ready to ship!
The P4K 4K resolution, full bandwidth NDI camera delivers high quality images thanks to its 1″ Sony Exmor R CMOS back lit sensor and 14.4 million effective pixels. NDI is a variable bit rate, I-Frame codec reaching approximately 140Mbits at 1080p60 making it visually lossless. In addition to being full NDI, P4K offers two independent 6G SDI outputs and one HDMI 2.0 output. Controllable remotely, P4K can communicate directly to BirdDog Cloud without a computer running Cloud Core.
The P400 has many of the same features as the P4K. The main difference can be found in the image sensor. While P4K features a 1 inch back-illuminated Sony sensor, P400 offers a 4K Sony 1 / 2.5 inch CMOS 8.5MP backlit sensor.

BirdDog will soon bring Dante support to all its hardware products as well as integration into its Comms Pro audio intercom system and its new Dante NDI Bridge application.
Dante for Hardware
Soon all BirdDog products (Studio NDI, Mini, 4K Converters, Wallplates, SDM Modules & PTZ range cameras) will support Dante audio. Input of Dante audio can be streamed out as NDI. If there is an audio output, then audio tracks can be converted from the NDI stream to Dante audio.
Dante Comms Pro Integration
Use hardware from other manufactures with BirdDog’s Comms Pro, its revolutionary audio intercom system. For instance, Dante enabled belt packs and Dante enabled Comms boxes will be compatible.
Dante NDI Bridge Application
This Window 10 application flips audio tracks between NDI and Dante in sub-frame latency. It supports up to 3 stereo pairs, meaning Dante NDI Bridge can receive 3 NDI streams and create 3 stereo pairs of Dante audio. It can also receive a single NDI stream and create 3 Dante stereo audio pairs. The reverse also applies, thanks to Dante NDI Bridge.
