Vaddio and Panasonic Join Forces at WFX 2008
Vaddio, designer and OEM distributor of specialty PTZ cameras and high-end camera-control systems, has added Panasonic Robotic PTZ cameras to its product line.
“By teaming the Panasonic AW-HE100 integrated HD/SD camera with Vaddio’s CAT5 transmission system, users have an easy-to-use, easy-to-install camera solution with outstanding picture quality and ultra-smooth pan/tilt/zoom capabilities,” says John Baisley, president, Panasonic Broadcast & Television Systems.
“Panasonic has always been one of the leading developers of video technology,” says Rob Sheeley, president of Vaddio. “With their new AW-HE100 integrated robotic camera, they have just raised the bar in terms of performance and image quality people can now expect from robotic camera systems.”
Vaddio will showcase two new camera systems, based on Panasonic’s AW-HE100 robotic cameras, at this fall’s WFX 2008. The WallVIEW PRO HE100 allows the use of standard CAT-5 cabling to run HD video, camera power, and camera control up to 500 feet. Vaddio’s High Speed Differential Signaling provides a high-bandwidth, low-loss video signal to ensure high-definition quality up to 500 feet.
Also debuting for the first time, the WallVIEW CCU HE100 takes the PRO system a step further by adding Vaddio’s Camera Control Unit image-control technology. This allows the user to adjust the camera’s iris, gain, color, pedestal, chroma, gamma, and detail. The WallVIEW CCU HE100 allows the use of standard CAT-5 cabling to run both HD and SD video, camera power, black burst sync, and camera control up to 500 feet .
Vaddio will also be showing full Panasonic Robotic Camera interoperability with its complete line of ProductionVIEW camera-control systems. The ProductionVIEW systems allow the integrator to incorporate the Panasonic AW-HE100 robotic cameras into new or existing projects.
