The BirdDog BDP400W camera features simultaneous NDI, 6G-SDI, and HDMI outputs. The P400 is ready to go live with your full NDI workflow today, while providing the SDI output that your legacy switcher and router requires. This flexibility helps navigate a hybrid environment, enabling you to make a seamless transition to the world of NDI.
The BDP400W teams up BirdDog’s custom NDI silicon chip, a 4K Sony CMOS Backlit sensor, and a true Sony Image Module.
P400 includes professional-level colour tools including Colour Matrix
control, Black level, Gamma including 512 pre-set gamma positions. The
P400 also provides 10-bit NDI in stunning 4K resolution and allows chroma subsampling in your choice of 4:2:0 or 4:2:2.
10-Bit 4:2:2 4K. Numbers matter.
P400 debuts the
world’s first 4K 10-bit NDI in full I-Frame chroma subsampling at 4:2:2
which can be decoded natively in hardware by BirdDog’s 4K Family of NDI
Encoders and Decoders. If decoding with an 8-bit 4:2:0 receiver the
stream will automatically serve 8-bit 4:2:0 and this is what will be
decoded. Think of it as an automatic and virtual handshake.
BirdDog Cam Control.
Cam Control allows full access to the entire colour matrix, black levels, and even the gamma to be able to shade your P400’s like a total pro. Right click to view camera full screen on a secondary monitor to really dial in the look you want and then copy the settings to colour match cameras in seconds. Yes that’s right. Colour match cameras in
Incredible low light performance.
In low light conditions the camera automatically switches from day to night mode, removing the IR-cut filter to boost sensitivity for clear pictures in near-darkness.
Triple output. NDI, 6G-SDI and HDMI.
With NDI, 6G-SDI, and HDMI simultaneous outputs, the P400 is ready to go live with your full NDI workflow today or if you are still in an old
school SDI workflow you can use as an SDI camera and ease your way into the world of NDI® when you are ready. We’ll be here to welcome you into the future with open arms.
Genlock. Let that sync in.
With Genlock you can now synchronize multiple cameras using the Genlock input. Now all your cameras can be hitting your NDI® enabled vision mixer at the same time and lets you eliminate the need to add frame
Superfine Robotics. Precise control at your fingers.
P400's robotics are super precise and super sensitive. Wind down the
panning and tilting speeds to create super professional shots that are
dramatic, or crank up the speeds for high action sports to allow you to
follow the movements.
20x Optical Zoom. Fast and Crisp.
20x optical zoom offers a bright F2.0 aperture with a super smooth and
fast zoom. Transition from wide to tele and recall pre-set positions
quickly and with super fine precision.The incredible optical zoom
function makes P400 perfect for sports such as football, baseball,
hockey, ski fields, basketball, soccer, and more.
Tally light that just works.
NDI has tally information built into the metadata so when P400 is connected to an NDI enabled switcher the tally light on the front of the unit to ensure your on air talent will always know which camera is live. There is no configuration required; it just works.
PoE or DC. You have the power.
can be powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE++) for single cable operation that can carry Video, Audio, Power, Tally, and Intercom or you can choose to use the included power adapter.
PTZ Keyboard. Take control.
Combine P400 with the BirdDog PTZ Keyboard and you have total control of all functions remotely. PTZ Keyboard is a full featured PTZ Keyboard that can control up to 255 PTZ cameras on a single network so can scale to even the most complex installations. PTZ Keyboard can control P400 over NDI or by RS422 / RS232 when using in SDI mode.
RESTful API. DIY automation.
Download the free BirdDog RESTful API and program your own automation for all BirdDog hardware endpoints, including cameras.
Adaptive bit rate for greater efficiency.
Full NDI is a variable bit rate codec. In normal circumstances BirdDog recommends allowing around 140Mbps in HD, or 6 streams per 1GbE cable with some headroom. In 4K it is recommended to allow around 300Mbps or 3 streams with some headroom to allow for any unforeseen spikes. With BirdDog’s tools you can select the bit rate to suit your bandwidth and requirements. In both HD you can slide between 80-180Mbps and in 4K you can select the data rate to be anywhere between 60 and 360Mbps.
