BirdDog P400 Bundle
Save BIG when you buy 3 x P400 Cameras AND get a FREE PTZ Keyboard
BirdDog P400 was the world’s first PTZ camera delivering full i-frame NDI in 10-bit 4K and includes incredible colour tools, such as Colour Matrix control, Black level, and Gamma.
World’s first full i-frame NDI® in 10-bit 4K. Incredible Colour Tools.
P400 features 10-bit NDI in stunning 4K resolution and allows chroma subsampling in your choice of 4:2:0 or 4:2:2.
P400 teams up BirdDog’s custom NDI® silicon chip, a 4K Sony CMOS Backlit sensor, and a true Sony Image Module.
P400 includes professional-level colour tools including Colour Matrix control, Black level, Gamma including 512 pre-set gamma positions.
10-Bit 4:2:2 4K. NUMBERS MATTER.
P400 debuts the world’s first 4K 10-bit NDI in full I-Frame chroma subsampling at 4:2:2 which can be decoded natively in hardware by BirdDog’s 4K Family of NDI Encoders and Decoders. If decoding with an 8-bit 4:2:0 receiver the stream will automatically serve 8-bit 4:2:0 and this is what will be decoded. Think of it as an automatic and virtual handshake.
Low light performance.
In low light conditions the camera automatically switches from day to night mode, removing the IR-cut filter to boost sensitivity for clear pictures in near-darkness.
Triple output. NDI®, 6G-SDI and HDMI.
With NDI®, 6G-SDI, and HDMI simultaneous outputs, the P400 is ready to go live with your full NDI® workflow today or if you are still in an old school SDI workflow you can use as an SDI camera and ease your way into the world of NDI® when you are ready. We’ll be here to welcome you into the future with open arms.
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.
Superfine Robotics. Precise control at your fingers.
P400’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.
20x Optical Zoom. Fast and Crisp.
The 20x optical zoom offers a bright F2.0 aperture with a super smooth and fast zoom. Transition from wide to tele and recall pre-set positions quickly and with super fine precision.
The incredible optical zoom function makes P400 perfect for sports such as football, baseball, hockey, ski fields, basketball, soccer, and more.
Tally light that just works.
NDI® has tally information built into the metadata so when P400 is connected to an NDI® enabled switcher the tally light on the front of the unit will just work so your on air talent will always air talent know which camera is live. There is no configuration required; it just works.
PoE or DC. You have the power.
