BirdDog - PTZ Range

BirdDog - PTZ Range

Introducing the BirdDog PTZ range. Full NDI®. No compromises.

The World’s First Full NDI® PTZ Cameras and PTZ Controller Keyboard are here. Featuring Sony CMOS Backlit Sensors and full Sony Image Modules on P200, A200, and A300, and a true broadcast sensor on P100, never before have NDI® cameras looked so good. By integrating BirdDog’s custom NDI® silicon chip, they can deliver full NDI®, with no compromises.

If you have an SDI or HDMI system the BirdDog PTZ range will slot seamlessly into your workflow too, with the bonus of protecting your investment in the future if you choose to transition over to NDI at a later date.

For those in an NDI world there are two types of NDI to look out for.  The BirdDog range delivers "Full NDI", a variable bit rate, I-Frame codec that is reaches around 140Mbits at 1080p60 and is visually lossless.  NDI|HX is a compressed, long-GOP, H.264 variant of NDI that reaches around 12Mbits at 1080p60, appropriate for low bandwidth applications where quality is less important.
