OUR PART # AWHE2PJ
The Panasonic AW-HE2 is a compact HD camera with electronic pan/tilt/zoom functionality, remote IP monitoring, HDMI output, and IP control capability. Small and unobtrusive, the HE2 is ideal for remote monitoring in athletics, conference rooms, reality show production, and in classrooms for lecture capture and distance learning. With no moving parts, the HE2 should excel in difficult or demanding settings, such as auto sports and active classrooms.
Featuring a sleek, compact design and versatile HDMI output, the HE2 combines production-level image quality, smooth digital pan/tilt/zoom operation, IP control, and easy system integration for versatile HD/SD video communications. The camera utilizes a full HD MOS sensor and Panasonic's Super Resolution digital signal processing to deliver high quality PTZ video with no moving parts. Horizontal resolution is a high 850 TV lines and minimum illumination is 20 lux.
The AW-HE2's high-quality HD video and stereo audio output (plus control) via the camera's USB connector effectively transforms the camera into a "super-webcam" for lectures/event capture and a wide-range of other USB-centric applications. The HE2's video and audio over USB output is compatible with Microsoft Lync and other common programs that support USB lecture/meeting capture, audio/video recording, and videoconferencing—including Skype, Adobe Connect, Microsoft Graphedit, and Panopto. Full HD video is output via USB in MJPEG up to a maximum of 1080/30P.
The HE2 incorporates a highly-accurate, all-digital pan-tilt function that offers precise, fast, fluid movement in all directions. A very wide horizontal field of view of 95 degrees makes it possible to capture all the action, even in small or awkwardly-shaped environments. Video output formats via HDMI include 1080/60p/50p/59.94i/50i/30p/25p and 720/60p/50p, with stereo audio. For live remote preview and control, the HE2 delivers IP-preview MJPEG video embedded in the camera’s Browser control page, at resolutions up to 640x480 and frame rates of up to 30fps.
The HE2 supports IR and both direct and Web-based IP remote control. Direct IP control is possible using Panasonic's AW-RP50N, as well as appropriately programmed systems from Crestron, AMX and other manufacturers. Browser-based control includes remote IP-video live preview to facilitate remote setup and operation. IR remote control is achieved through the use of the AW-RM50G handheld wireless infrared remote control (sold separately-contact your sales representative for more information).
Other standard features include Picture-in-Picture functionality (simultaneous zoomed and wide-angle picture), nine pre-set memories, adjustable shutter speeds up to 1/12,000 sec., Auto Gain, back light compensation, and a stereo microphone. The HE2 weighs less than 9 ounces, and is less than 6 inches long with a diameter of about two inches. The camera includes a small AC supply, and has DC/USB power connectors for system applications. The HE2 includes an adjustable base for mounting on desktops, ceiling or walls, and also incorporates a 1/4-20 mounting thread for use with tripods and other camera support systems.
