Superior Robotics.
Pan and Tilt simultaneously.

All BirdDog PTZ cameras feature industry-leading smooth robotics that can pan and tilt at the same time, with no stepping. Not all PTZ’s are built the same; the superior BirdDog robotics means you can work on a diagonal path without jerky movements.

Glass matters.

BirdDog cameras all use super high quality, broadcast grade lenses, with P200, P240, P4K, A200 and A300, all featuring genuine Sony Image Blocks with Sony glass to deliver lightening-fast auto-focus and super smooth zoom.

NDI® or Baseband.
The choice is yours.

BirdDog cameras bridge the gap between baseband SDI and HDMI workflows and the wave of IP connectivity. All cameras feature either SDI, HDMI, or both to fit seamlessly into a baseband environment. BirdDog are however known for being the global leaders in NDI® cameras and all cameras feature Full NDI® connectivity.

The NDI®

NDI® is a way of sending video and audio over low cost Ethernet networks. But it’s so much more. With NDI® you get Tally which ‘just works’ when connected to any NDI® compatible switcher and metadata which can be used for all kinds of cool things. NDI® video can also be seen on multiple computers and destinations at the same time without the need for any specialist and expensive video equipment. The flexibility of NDI® is endless and is the future of live video production.

The BirdDog NDI®

BirdDog was the first company in the world to develop a custom silicon chip to do NDI® encoding and decoding. This custom development has put BirdDog as far and away standout leaders in NDI® technology with a long list of world firsts including first NDI® hardware encoder, first NDI® hardware decoder first NDI® cameras, first NDI® Tally hardware, first NDI® audio intercom solution, first NDI® routing software, first NDI® video scopes, first NDI® auto-tracking for PTZ Cameras, and many more.
