Quick Overview

BirdDog P4K. 4K Full NDI PTZ with 1" Sony Sensor.

Sony 1” Sensor. Size does matter.

 

The best images come from the best sensors and the P4K is built exclusively around the best sensor in its category. The massive 1” Sony Exmor R CMOS backlit sensor delivers truly stunning pictures in all shoot modes and frame rates whether in HD or 4K.

 

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. P4K is a Full NDI® camera.

BirdDog Cloud Integration.

Directly in the camera.

 

P4K can communicate directly to BirdDog Cloud without the need for a computer running Cloud Core. Simply plug the P4K into your network and configure it through BirdDog Cloud Command to control all functions of P4K from literally anywhere in the world. Roads? Where we’re going you don’t need roads.

More than just a production PTZ. Shoot true cinematic styles.

 

P4K is a PTZ designed for the most demanding live production shoots and supports all the traditional frame rates you would expect including 29.97 but now you can use your PTZ as a camera for TVC’s, drama, and shoot 24p for that wonderful cinematic look.

 

Advanced Colour Controls.

 

With user selectable gamma settings and black gamma adjustment, fine tuning your shot has never been more flexible in a PTZ. Sony’s legendary sensor technology sets the tone for your next quality production.

NDI HX2. Welcome to the party pal.

 

Whilst P4K is designed to be a Full bandwidth NDI camera, it can also do the lower bandwidth version of NDI so you have the flexibility to choose between Full NDI and NDI HX2. P4K also supports H.264 and HEVC/H.265 in both 4K and HD resolutions.

 

10-bit. NDI4.

 

P4K is a 10-bit sensor and with NDI4 you can have an end to end 10-bit workflow. Perfect for broadcasters and other productions where bit depth matters. With 10-bit support you can record the NDI feeds using free tools such as NewTek NDI Monitor or IsoCorder Pro.

Full NDI. 6G SDI. HDMI 2.0. Life is all about connections.

 

Full NDI. Two independent 6G SDI outputs and one HDMI 2.0 output, all live all the time to create amazingly flexible workflows.

 

Genlock. Let that sync in.

 

With Genlock you can now synchronise multiple cameras using the Genlock input. Now all your cameras can be hitting your NDI enabled vision mixer at the same time and lets you eliminate the need to add frame buffers.

Superfine Robotics. Precise control at your fingers.

 

P4K’s robotics are super precise and super sensitive. Wind down the panning and tilting speeds to create super professional shots that are dramatic, or crank up the speeds for high action sports to allow you to follow the movements.

 

360 degree Tally lights.

 

The front, rear, and side Tally lights combine to create a 360 degree Tally light. Now everyone on the production set can see which camera is live to air.

Optional Modules. HDBaseT and Fiber.

 

Added to the Full NDI, Baseband 6G SDI, Baseband HDMI 2.0, NDI HX2, H.264, HEVC/H.265 format support you can also add HDBaseT with an optional module. Add the Fiber module to run SDI over Fiber directly out of the camera.

 

ePTZ in HD Mode.

 

In HD Mode you can take advantage of the massive sensor to create Region of Interest for your HD production. Pull any HD frame out of the 4K frame.

Free Comms Lite. Upgrade to Comms Pro.

 

P4K includes free Audio Intercom software, Comms Lite. Comms Lite supports four BirdDog devices and one Director. For more information on Comms Lite and how to get your free copy click here.

 

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.
