The Panasonic AW-HE50H Outdoor PTZ Camera System with Heater Blower Enclosure & IP Control Module is a full outdoor camera system, complete with a custom Dotworkz D2 enclosure, that's ready to be controlled via its included IP module.

The HE50H's integrated pan/tilt/zoom mechanism can be operated remotely by Panasonic AW series controllers, computers, or control systems from third-party manufacturers, all via IP control. A full 1920 x 1080 CMOS sensor and 18x optical zoom lens deliver HD or SD imagery in a variety of resolutions, achieving exceptionally natural results due to Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS), Hybrid Noise Reduction, and the Flesh Tone function. If desired, the video can be monitored locally via the camera's HDMI, composite, or component outputs.

Fast, precise, and accurate, the AW-HE50H offers a variety of other powerful features, such as electronic shutter, 7-step chroma level adjustment, 3-step gamma correction, and tally light. The camera pans across a ±175° range and tilts from +90 to -30°. With its Dotworkz Heater Blower enclosure, the HE50H camera enjoys armor against the elements.

The camera housing will not corrode, rust, or leak. The custom Dotworkz D2 enclosure is a Heater Blower (HB-MVP) unit, which offers excellent protection against the hazards of outdoor camera use: environmental mayhem and vandalism. The enclosure features a heater-blower for environmental control and a multi-volt platform for power.

The housing is tested to be water-, dust-, and airtight, and its heater activates at 40°F (4°C) to keep the PTZ camera at optimal operating temperature. It deactivates at 60°F (15°C). The blower remains on at all times, keeping the enclosed AW-HE50H cool and keeping the lens fog-free. This heater-blower version of the D2 enclosure is recommended for climate zones with temperatures that range from 0 to 120°F (-17 to 49°C).

The system includes a pre-wired Teradek Odyssey HD MPEG-4 encoder and a Cisco Ethernet switch to send the camera's HD or SD output over an IP network – and receive over the same network the commands that make this pan/tilt/zoom camera what it is. Interface cabling and power supplies are also supplied.

The camera's gamma curve and knee slope are optimized to match the contrast of each pixel in real time. This increases the dynamic range without affecting the normal pixels
The innovative Hybrid (2D/3D) Noise Reduction function also suppresses after-images, even in difficult lighting conditions
Flesh Tone Mode produces a more pleasing and realistic picture
Full-HD 1/3" CMOS sensor with 18x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom
Camera menus can be set up via a web browser by connecting the AW-HE50H to a PC
Quick camera integration, thanks to simple connections, IP control, and the included Turn-lock mount
Enclosure is IP66-rated: airtight and sealed against outside air, dust, water, and saltwater. In addition, the D2 housing features IP68-rated waterproof connection ports
All system components are mounted and wired in the enclosure, except for the HE50H camera, which should be installed onsite. Optional far-side MPEG decoder not included
