Panasonic AW-HE40 Overview

The white Panasonic AW-HE40HW PTZ Camera with HDMI Output features a 1/2.3" MOS sensor. When connected to the Internet, this IP camera allows you to control PTZ actions and monitor the surveillance area from a remote location via a Web browser. This provides you with several advantages like reduced integration costs, easy remote production and engineering, and lower cost for multiple location systems.

Equipped with a 4.3 to 129mm zoom lens (35mm equivalent is 31.6 to 962mm) with 30x optical zoom and 16x digital zoom, and a 1.4x digital extender, this PTZ camera enables you to zoom in on activity in the monitoring area for a closer look. The Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) minimizes blocked shadows and blown highlights. When it gets too dark to record normal footage, this Full HD PTZ camera uses Night Mode to capture clear images in monochrome. The camera supports audio input, allowing you to capture and embed audio within the video signal. It is PoE+ compatible, allowing you to power the unit using only a single LAN cable.

Highly accurate pan-tilt head offers precise, fast, and fluid movement in all directions, enabling the capture of both slow- and fast-moving objects without excessive vibration and bounce
Freeze During Preset function may be enabled to freeze the video during preset playback. The immediately preceding still image is output during preset movements, so that the swiveling movement is not displayed.
Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) for minimizing over exposure in highlights and detail blocking in dark areas. The AW-HE40HW is equipped with High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode. When shooting and synthesizing two images with differing exposure times, the AW-HE40HW can create video with high visibility that corrects for halation and black defects, even under backlit conditions
Hybrid 2D/3D Digital Noise Reduction (Hybrid DNR) allows clear image capture with minimum after images, even in dimly lit areas
Switching to Night Mode makes shooting possible, even in low-light conditions. The AW-HE40HW can also be set to switch to the mode automatically, depending on surrounding light levels.
The AW-HE40HW also supports audio input, embedding and encoding. The input from the camera's switchable mic/line input can be combined with the HD-SDI, HDMI, and streaming outputs for mixing, recording or transmission.
Pan/tilt speed adjustment from 2 to 4 steps
  • Preset memory up to 100 positions.
  • Functions such as freeze during preset, digital extender zoom, and color temperature settings can be assigned to the user buttons on optional Panasonic controllers.
  • Equipped with RS-422 remote terminal; up to five units can be controlled via serial control from a controller.
  • Equipped with RS-232C remote terminal (standard serial communication support). Up to seven units can be controlled via daisy chain connection.
  • Up to four units can be operated with a wireless remote controller (AW-RM50G sold separately).
Serial (RS-422), IP, and IR remote control capabilities
100 preset memories for rapid and precise remote recall
By connecting network devices that support the IEEE802.3at PoE+ standard, power can be supplied via LAN cable. This can lower installation costs since it is not necessary to install a power supply or even a local AC outlet.
Can be placed on the desktop as a standalone unit or suspended from the ceiling
Compatible with Android and iOS devices.
