Panasonic today has announced a collaborative initiative between Panasonic and NewTek to promote and support  interoperability between AW-HE130 integrated PTZ cameras and NewTek TriCaster multi-camera video production systems.  

The AW-HE130 is the first integrated pan/tilt/zoom camera with a production-quality, built-in MPEG-4 streaming encoder, audio embedding and Power over Ethernet+ (POE+) compatibility, enabling a single-wire digital broadcasting solution.

The NewTek TriCaster family of systems provides a range of integrated production and streaming solutions appropriate for multi-camera applications ranging from mobile field production to full broadcast studio use.

Together, the HE130 and TriCaster offer creative possibilities never before available for remote, mobile and streaming production.

In addition to supporting IP control of and accepting IP streaming inputs from the HE130, appropriately configured TriCaster systems will soon employ Panasonic’s “Easy IP Set UP” software (native in the HE130) to facilitate rapid setup and reassignment of cameras.

The Panasonic HE130 is the successor to the extraordinarily popular AW-HE120 three-sensor IP-enabled integrated PTZ camera, used by hundreds of broadcasters, sports teams, universities and houses-of- worship. The HE130 adds many useful features including MPEG-4 streaming up to 24 Mbps of production-quality video and audio, optical image stabilization, 3G-SDI output (up to 1080/60p), POE+ and three new high-sensitivity, low-noise 1/3" 3-MOS imagers.

NAB attendees will be the first to see a demonstration of this new workflow at both the Panasonic (C3607) and NewTek (SL3312) booths.
