BirdDog EYES A300 Overview

Featuring a wind-load durability of 134 mph, the BirdDog Eyes A300 is capable of withstanding up to category 4 hurricanes when secured properly. It's designed for nearly all weather conditions and virtually all outdoor applications. The housing is IP67 outdoor rated, corrosion-resistance treated, and also nitrogen filled to ensure the lens won't fog up, meaning you'll always get the shot. Furthermore, a built-in infrared laser with a range of up to 1640' helps with focusing in low-light conditions. The housing also has a rain wiper to keep water off the lens.

The Eyes A300 is a full NDI 1080p60 PTZ camera with a fast autofocus and fast 30x optical zoom. The fast performance allows capturing fast action activities, including sports. The camera incorporates BirdDog's custom NDI silicon chip, a Sony CMOS backlit sensor, and a Sony image module, which is what allows for the fast operation as well as optimal image quality.

As opposed to other types of NDI, such as NDI|HX, which is a compressed variant that reaches 12 Mb/s, the A300 features the visually lossless full NDI variable bit-rate iFrame codec that reaches up to 140 Mb/s at 1080p60. It encodes and decodes Full YUV 4:2:2 NDI.

The A300 has simultaneous NDI and SDI outputs and also offers RS-422 and RS-485 serial control. With this flexibility, you can have a strictly NDI workflow or choose to use baseband video for now and move to NDI whenever you're ready.

The camera offers 360° continuous pan rotation, 255 preset positions, zero deviation positioning technology, and a fast preset movement speed of 150°/s. It can be powered via an optional 24 VAC BirdDog BD-A-P24-5 power adapter or over PoE power using an optional BirdDog PoE Injector. It's designed to be mounted upside down and it supports optional wall, ceiling, pole, and other mounts (see Features section below).

The Eyes A300 also comes with the BirdDog Comms Lite audio intercom software, which supports up to four BirdDog devices. Comms Lite is Windows-compatible and offers features such as director push to talk, mute camera operator, auto-detect NDI sources, monitor camera audio, and shortcut to Web console. For a more complete version of the application, an optional upgrade is available to Comms Pro. The camera is also compatible with the optional BirdDog Central software, which helps you decode NDI back to HDMI or SDI as well as with the BirdDog PTZ Keyboard.
