BirdDog P4K Overview

Reap the benefits of NDI without compromising on resolution with the P4K UHD 4K PTZ Camera with NDI, HDMI & 6G-SDI Output from BirdDog. Optimized to provide you with an efficient way of getting UHD 4K video into your productions, the P4K connects to systems, devices, and applications that support NDI via only an Ethernet connection. Simply plug in your Ethernet cable on the back to connect to your network, and the camera instantly receives power over Ethernet (PoE) and becomes available as an input source for any NDI-compatible hardware or software on the network.

Equipped with a 1" Sony Exmor R 14.2MP CMOS sensor and a 9.3-111.6mm lens, this camera captures video at resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 at 30 fps in a 64.6 to 6.1° field of view. In addition to 12x optical zoom, the P4K provides up to 18x digital zoom at 4K or up to 24x digital zoom at Full HD. The integrated pan/tilt system allows for ±350° continuous panning and 120° tilting at up to 100° and 50° per second respectively. Focusing can be performed manually or set to automatic. In addition to NDI, the camera offers HDMI and dual 6G-SDI interfaces.
