Panasonic has unveiled the latest addition to its PTZ lineup at NAB 2019, the AW-HE42.

The AW-HE42 full HD remote PTZ camera offers a wide range of interfaces including 3G-SDI, HDMI, IP and Genlock. The HE42 features a wide horizontal viewing angle of 65.1 degrees, a 20X optical zoom, and 30X i.Zoom.

Panasonic also revealed further information on its 8K ROI (Region Of Interest) multi-camera system (AK-SHB800GJ), which was introduced at IBC 2018.

Scheduled for release in July 2019, it features a compact, box-type shape and is equipped with an EF lens mount.

Providing a wide-angle 8K image from a single CMOS image sensor, the camera allows up to four different HD videos to be cropped, panned, tilted, and zoomed individually, reducing the cost and complexity from four HD cameras to one.

Sivashankar Kuppusamy, Marketing Manager Broadcast & ProAV EMEA at Panasonic said, “Panasonic leads the market in PTZ, so it’s exciting to be able to demonstrate the latest technological advances in the range at NAB. The AW-HE42 provides the highest quality video, precise control and movement that our customers are demanding for their productions.”
