200 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 P200 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. P200 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. 3.5mm audio connectors allow P200 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.
P200 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. P200 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.
