The World’s First Full NDI PTZ Cameras and PTZ Controller Keyboard are here.Featuring Sony CMOS Backlit Sensors and full Sony Image Modules on P200, A200, and A300, and a true broadcast sensor on P100, never before have NDI cameras looked so good. By integrating BirdDog’s custom NDI silicon chip, they can deliver full NDI, with no compromises.
A200 PTZ camera utilises BirdDog’s custom NDI® silicon chip and leverages an impressive Sony CMOS backlit sensor and full Sony Image Module.
Designed for serious production the image quality of A200 is best in class. Built on a true Sony Image module with Sony CMOS backlit sensor, P200 has super fast focus hunting, incredibly sharp images, and amazingly fast zoom. A200 has frame rates up to 1080p60, 30x optical zoom, and outputs SDI, HDMI, and NDI® simultaneously. Each output can be set independently so you can combine SDI 1080i with NDI® 1080p.
A200 is IP67 rating for outdoor and indoor use. Corrosion Resistant treated housing for salt spray environment. -40°C to +60°C operating temperature. It even has a rain wiper to keep water off the lens. 3.5mm audio connectors allow P100 to work with BirdDog Comms, the world’s first NDI audio intercom platform. Comms is a Windows 10 application that can run on any Windows 10 compatible computer, laptop, or surface for a touch screen experience.
A200 has been designed for the most demanding on image quality. The superior optics make P200 perfect for Sports, Broadcast, Live Event Production, IMAG, Education, and any other application where quality matters. A200 can also be used as a traditional PTZ camera with RS422, RS485, and RS232 control allowing you to move into the world of NDI® when you are ready.
Weatherproof Full NDI® PTZ.
Designed for fixed outdoor installations such as sports, the IP67 rating means A200 can withstand pretty much any weather conditions. By teaming up BirdDog’s custom NDI® silicon chip, a Sony CMOS backlit sensor, and a true Sony Image module A200 has lightning auto focus, incredibly sharp images, and insanely fast zoom. A200 has frame rates up to 1080p60, 30x optical zoom, and outputs SDI and Full NDI® simultaneously.
Full NDI®. No compromises.
In the world of NDI there are two flavours, NDI® and NDI|HX. NDI® is a variable bit rate, I-Frame codec that is reaches around 140Mbits at 1080p60 and is visually lossless. NDI|HX is a compressed, long-GOP, H.264 variant that reaches around 12Mbits at 1080p60. Eyes A200 hardware only Encodes and Decodes Full YUV422 NDI®.
Sony Sensor. You deserve the best.
The best pictures come from the best silicon. A200 is teams up a world class Sony CMOS Backlit Sensor with the BirdDog custom NDI® chip to form a match made in silicon heaven. Your productions deserve the best.
Sony Image Module. Optics done right.
Lightning auto focus. Insanely fast zoom. Precision optics. The only way to achieve the best picture quality is with image module made by the world’s best. A200 uses a true Sony image module to give unparalleled performance, picture quality, and responsiveness.
All weather. Keep your NDI® dry.
With an IP67 rating A200 is perfect for fixed installations in outdoor and indoor environments. The external housing has been treated for corrosion resistance against salt spray and the -40°C to +60°C operating temperature rating means it has been designed to withstand the most extreme elements on earth. It even has a rain wiper to keep water off the lens.
Dual Output. NDI® and SDI.
With NDI® and SDI simultaneous outputs, the A200 is ready to go live with your full NDI® workflow, or if you are still in an old school SDI workflow you can control via RS422, RS485, and RS232 to future proof your investment by using baseband video now and move to NDI® when you are ready.
30x Optical zoom. Over there is now over here.
The two punch 30x optical zoom and all weather abilities of makes A200 perfect for outdoor and indoor fixed installations for sports such as football, baseball, hockey, ski fields, basketball, soccer, and more.
You spin me right round baby. Right round.
360 degree continuous rotation, 255 preset positions, Zero Deviation Positioning technology, and a preset movement speed of 150 degrees per second mean you will never miss a shot again.
PTZ Keyboard. Take control.
Combine A200 with the BirdDog PTZ Keyboard and you have total control of all functions remotely. PTZ Keyboard is a full featured PTZ Keyboard that can control up to 255 PTZ cameras on a single network so can scale to even the most complex installations. PTZ Keyboard can control A200 over NDI® or by RS422 / RS232 when using in SDI mode.
PoE and Mounts. All options available.
A200 can be powered by PoE with an optional PoE Injector. Designed to hang upside down the choice of mounting options gives coverage for virtually any situation. Wall mount, Ceiling Mount, Corner Mount and Pole Mounting options all available.
Free Comms Lite. Upgrade to Comms Pro.
A200 includes free Audio Intercom software, Comms Lite. Comms Lite supports four BirdDog devices and one Director.
Need a more powerful Audio Intercom solution? Comms Pro gives you all the amazing features of Comms Lite plus allows you create you up to five groups, adds additional push to talk buttons for the director, ability to change groups on the fly, plus more.
Distribute NDI® content everywhere. Just add Central.
BirdDog Central is a software platform set to redefine the way we think about driving content to TV screens. By teaming up Central with any NDI® source, including all BirdDog hardware capable of creating NDI® sources, you can now drive your NDI® streams to any BirdDog Studio NDI or Mini to decode NDI® back to SDI or HDMI.
