BirdDog P400 Overview
The white BirdDog EYES P400 is a full NDI 4K PTZ camera featuring up to 4K30 resolution, an 8.5MP Sony CMOS backlit sensor, pro-level color control, and simultaneous 6G-SDI, HDMI, and NDI output. When paired with a BirdDog NDI encoder, the P400 provides native 4:2:2 decoding with a 4:2:0 option available for compatible receivers. Detailed 4K resolution and fast pan, tilt, zoom, and autofocus functions make the P400 ideal for fast-paced sports, larger indoor events, and other dynamic productions.
The P400 PTZ camera captures the action with a fast f/2.0 20x optical zoom lens plus 12x digital zoom, and 30x SRZ (Super Resolution Zoom) in 4K and 40x SRZ in HD. Remote control options for the P400 include NDI, VISCA over IP, RS-422/RS-232 options in SDI, and an included IR controller. The separately available BirdDog PTZ Keyboard can be used to control up to 255 cameras on a single network.
The P400 can be used with the downloadable BirdDog Central Lite NDI stream down-converting software, Cam Control camera settings control, and Comms Lite audio intercom software. Camera setting controls like color matrix, black levels, gamma, ND filters, and more give you the ability to create just the look you want and share it across multiple cameras. An IR cut filter automatically switches to night mode to produce clear images in low-light settings. Power the P400 via PoE or by using the included power adapter.
