The AW-HE42 PRO PTZ remote camera is designed to produce great results in a variety of applications that require high-quality video and precise control—such as event capture, staging, distance learning, lecture capture, live streaming and more. Thanks to the precision 20x optical zoom lens, a wide field of view, smooth pan/tilt/zoom functions and exceptional image quality, HE42 cameras are ideal for demanding remote video productions and IMAG use. With IP preview transmission and control, support for PoE+ (which allows power to be supplied via a LAN cable), and versatile control / workflow options, the HE42 also offers the flexibility needed for easy installation and management.

1/2.3" MOS Sensor

The AW-HE42 PRO PTZ camera is equipped with a 1/2.3-type MOS sensor and DSP (Digital Signal Processor) for high sensitivity and high resolution video production. The HE42 delivers an impressive signal-to-noise ratio, 1000 TV lines of resolution and 16-axis color matrix control for precise camera painting and matching.

20x Optical Zoom Lens

aw-he42 - 1

In addition to its high-performance 20x optical zoom, ultra-high-resolution technology has enabled intelligent camera zoom of up to 30x, while maintaining high resolution. This enables capture of crisp close-ups, even in large auditoriums and lecture halls. The camera can also be set with 12x digital zoom*5, or 1.4, 2.0, 4.0, 6.0 or 8.0 digital extender zoom options.

Optical Image Stabilization

Shaky video is heavily reduced with both optical (O.I.S) and digital 4-axis automatic image stabilization that detects mounting surface vibration that may be caused by audio equipment and opening/closing doors. The AW-HE42 optimizes for shooting stability, wherever it may be mounted.

Quad Drive Lens System

quad drive lens system

The AW-HE42 is equipped with a powerful Quad Drive Lens System, featuring three zoom lenses and one focus lens which are all driven independently, yet simultaneously. Driving each of the four lenses individually enables a reduced lens size and drive range, allowing for a smaller camera body size with exceptional quality zoom and incredible image magnification.

External Sync Signal

The AW-HE42 robotic camera is also equipped with an external sync signal*1 input connector (genlock) as well as BBS (Black Burst Sync) and tri-level sync.


HDMI, SDI, USB & LAN

aw-he42 inputs outputs

Full HD video output is enabled with HDMI, SDI, USB and LAN cable compatibility.

Night Mode

night mode

For shooting in virtually total darkness, the AW-HE42's Night Mode makes it possible to automatically switch to the capture of high-quality, HD monochrome video with the use of an (optional) IR illuminator in the 850nm range, making the camera ideal for reality show production, sleep lab research, wildlife documentaries and staging support. The camera can be set to switch to the mode manually or automatically depending on surrounding light levels.

Optical ND Filter

Equipped with a motorized optical ND (neutral density) filter wheel allows the AW-HE42 to be utilized in varied lighting environments.

HDR Mode

hdr mode
The AW-HE42 already includes many innovative standard features developed to expand the capabilities of professional video system users. In addition to Panasonic's Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) and advanced Digital Noise Reduction (DNR), an ingenious High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode helps to produce very good video even in extreme contrast and lighting conditions. When shooting and synthesizing two images with differing exposure times, the HE42 can create video that corrects for halation and black defects, even under backlit conditions.

PoE+

The AW-HE42 embraces the Power of Ethernet+ (PoE+) technology for easier system installation and setup.

Freeze During Preset

The freeze during preset playback function is great for single-camera operations, allowing for clean preset transitions. Setup your shot, freeze the video, make your preset transition without it going live, and return to the live video. Perfect for situations where you're streaming live directly without a switcher.

Preset Memory

Equipped with a JPEG Image Saving function that enables camera video to be saved, played back and deleted on a microSD card as still JPEG images.

Smooth Pan/Tilt

The pan range of ±175° and the tilt range of -30° to +90° cover a wide shooting area. Pan and tilt operate at a maximum speed of 90°/second and respond quickly to remote control operation.

Whisper Quiet Operation

The AW-HE42 operates super quietly at a sound level of NC35 or even lower. This allows use of a remote camera in a house of worship, lecture hall, museum or any venue where noise could be distracting to the audience or performers.
