“Neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of night…” you get the picture and so will the AW-UR100. As mentioned above, this 4K PTZ camera is rated IP65 and is designed to stand up to heavy rain, snow, saltwater, wind, and extended UV exposure. Three different types of image stabilization keep the image steady, and a defroster, along with cute, miniature windshield wipers, help keep the view clear.

You can even capture up to three cropped images while outputting a full 4K view, creating a multicamera look with just one unit. Compliance with FreeD commands enables you to construct AR/VR systems without the need for an encoder.

Don’t be fooled by the AV-HSW10‘s petite 10 x 6.9" form—this switcher packs a lot of features into its notebook-sized housing. Interface connections include two HDMI and four 3G-SDI inputs, one HDMI and two 3G-SDI outputs plus a LAN port. Stream directly from the switcher using NDI|HX2 (license required), SRT, and RTMP protocols and output video via 3G-SDI, HDMI, or USB-C. Designed for live event coverage, the AV-HSW10 switcher is with all current Panasonic PTZ cameras.

Users can switch between video sources using the T-fader and the soft crosspoint buttons on the switcher itself. They can also use a networked PC and Panasonic’s Software Control Panel (upcoming feature) for more remote operation.
