Hello Sony 1” Sensor. Meet NDI.
New Codec Engine.
A totally rebuilt codec engine brings even lower latency to the P400 and P4K and computationally higher picture quality. Better pictures, less bandwidth, faster.
Tighter Cam Control Integration.
Cam Control 2.0 has been updated to include all the features found in the OSD of P400 and P4K so you can now remotely shade the cameras from the beautiful Cam Control interface.
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 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. P4K is a Full NDI® camera.
Sony 1” Sensor. Size does matter.
The best images come from the best sensors and the P4K is built exclusively around the best sensor in its category. The massive 1” Sony Exmor R CMOS backlit sensor delivers truly stunning pictures in all shoot modes and frame rates whether in HD or 4K.
Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens. Glass matters.
The glass you use is super important in creating stunning pictures and P4K uses only the best. With precision optics and a T coating lens that reduces Ghost and Flare caused by reflections on the surface of the lens.
More than just a production PTZ.
Shoot true cinematic styles.
P4K is a PTZ designed for the most demanding live production shoots and supports all the traditional frame rates you would expect including 29.97 but now you can use your PTZ as a camera for TVC’s, drama, and shoot 24p for that wonderful cinematic look.
Advanced Colour Controls.
With user selectable gamma settings and black gamma adjustment, fine tuning your shot has never been more flexible in a PTZ. Sony’s legendary sensor technology sets the tone for your next quality production.
FREE Cam Control. Colour match in seconds.
The Cam Control app is the easiest and most user-friendly way to dial in BirdDog cameras. Simply load on a Windows 10 machine on the same network as your BirdDog cameras and access all functions of the camera through a beautiful interface. Quickly dial in the look you like and copy settings across multiple cameras in seconds. And it’s 100% FREE with all BirdDog PTZ cameras.
Precise control at your fingers.
P4K’s robotics are super precise and super sensitive. Wind down the panning and tilting speeds to create super professional shots that are dramatic, or crank up the speeds for high action sports to allow you to follow the movements.
360 degree Tally lights.
The front, rear, and side Tally lights combine to create a 360 degree Tally light. Now everyone on the production set can see which camera is live to air.
Full NDI. 6G SDI. HDMI 2.0.
Life is all about connections.
Full NDI. Two independent 6G SDI outputs and one HDMI 2.0 output, all live all the time to create amazingly flexible workflows.
Genlock. Let that sync in.*
With Genlock you can now synchronise multiple cameras using the Genlock input. Now all your cameras can be hitting your NDI enabled vision mixer at the same time and lets you eliminate the need to add frame buffers.
*Feature coming soon with free firmware update.
PTZ Keyboard. Take control.
Combine P400 with the BirdDog PTZ Keyboard and you have total control of all functions remotely. PTZ Keyboard is a full featured PTZ Keyboard that can control up to 255 PTZ cameras on a single network so can scale to even the most complex installations. PTZ Keyboard can control P400 over NDI® or by RS422 / RS232 when using in SDI mode.
