The new 4K PTZ cameras – P4Kand 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.
