The best just got better. For free.
P200’s new Advanced Colour Tools unlock a suite of incredibly powerful, professional level, colour tuning features. The full Colour Matrix provides 64 individual control levels for saturation and hue of Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Yellow and Magenta, while the 72 Gamma stops let you really dial in those black level details and do all this from the free Cam Control app. New Video, Exposure, and Detail enhancement tools are also included to round out this exceptionally powerful update.
P200 is already the world’s flagship NDI® camera and the entire codec engine has been rebuilt from the ground up to provide even lower latency and computationally higher picture quality at a lower data rate.
New Colour Matrix. Just like Color but Australian.
Dialling in your cameras just levelled up. P200 now has a full colour matrix with individual saturation and hue control over Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Yellow and Magenta, all with 64 levels of control.
72 levels of Gamma.
From negative to positive gamma positions you can now dial in those blacks with an unprecedented level of control.
Video, Detail, Exposure. Enhance all.
All new tool kit to further enhance your pictures. Brightness compensation, Edge enhancement, Highlight compensation, Gamma offsets. It’s all in there.
New Codec Engine.
A totally rebuilt codec engine brings even lower latency to the P200 and computationally higher picture quality. Better pictures, less bandwidth, faster.
Full NDI®. No compromises.
In the world of NDI® there are two flavours, NDI® and NDI|HX. NDI® is a variable bit rate, I-Frame codec that is reaches around 140Mbits at 1080p60 and is visually lossless. NDI|HX is a compressed, long-GOP, H.264 variant that reaches around 12Mbits at 1080p60. P200 is a Full NDI® camera.
Tally light that just works.
NDI® has tally information built into the metadata so when P200 is connected to an NDI® enabled switcher the tally light on the front of the unit to ensure your on air talent will always know which camera is live. There is no configuration required; it just works.
