BirdDog Eyes A200 Gen 2 1080p Full NDI PTZ Camera in White
Note: Excludes Power Supply. Sold Seperately
The BirdDog A200 Gen2 1080p SDI/Full NDI PTZ Camera is an IP67 weatherproof full NDI 1080p60 PTZ camera suitable for indoor and outdoor installations. The Gen 2 model adds a new color matrix that allows you to control 64 levels of saturation and hue, and can also control 72 levels of gamma. There is also a new free Cam Control app that runs on Windows 10 to control all the settings of multiple cameras across your network.
Featuring fast autofocus and fast 30x optical zoom, the A200 is highly useful for capturing sports action and for most other applications. The camera incorporates BirdDog's custom NDI silicon chip, a Sony CMOS backlit sensor, and a Sony image module, which allows for the fast performance as well as optimal image quality. The weatherproof housing is also corrosion-resistant and has a rain wiper to keep water off the lens. The A200 features the visually lossless full NDI variable bit-rate iFrame codec that reaches up to 140 Mb/s at 1080p60 resolution, and it encodes and decodes Full YUV 4:2:2 NDI. The A200 has simultaneous NDI and SDI outputs and also offers RS-422 and RS-485 serial control using Pelco and VISCA protocols. 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 the following mounts, sold separately: the BD-A200-WM Wall Mount, BD-A200-CM Ceiling Mount, BD-A-PMA Pole Mount, and BD-A-CMA Corner Mount. The A200 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 optional BirdDog PTZ Keyboard.
