BirdDog Eyes P100 – Productions of all budgets deserve full NDI
The BirdDog Eyes P100 is built on BirdDog’s custom NDI® silicon chip, the P100 PTZ camera is your entry into the world of full NDI®. Featuring frame rates up to 1080p60, 10x optical zoom, and dual SDI and NDI® outputs, P100 gives you professional level quality, performance, and total flexibility. 3.5mm audio connectors allow P100 to work with BirdDog Comms, the world’s first NDI® audio intercom platform.
Full NDI. No compromises.
In the world of NDI® there are two flavours, NDI® and NDI|HX. NDI® is 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 that reaches around 12Mbits at 1080p60. P4K is a Full NDI® camera.
Tally lights that just work.
NDI® has tally information built into the metadata so when P100 is connected to an NDI® enabled switcher the tally lights 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.
Broadcast Sensor. Incredible pictures.
P100 is teams up a true broadcast camera sensor with the BirdDog custom NDI® chip to form a match made in silicon heaven. Champagne images on a beer budget because your productions deserve the best.
Extreme Speed. Optics done right.
Lightning auto focus. Insanely fast zoom. Precision optics. P100 has been engineered to meet the most demanding situations whether you are in a boardroom streaming your quarterly results, producing a live event for your church, or live streaming sports.
Dual output. NDI® and SDI.
With NDI® and SDI simultaneous outputs you can use the P100 is ready to go live with your full NDI® workflow, or if you are still in an old school SDI workflow you can control via RS422, RS485, and RS232. Future proof your investment by using baseband video now and move to NDI® when you are ready.
PTZ Keyboard. Take control.
Combine P100 with the BirdDog PTZ Keyboard and you have total control of all functions remotely. PTZ Keyboard is a full featured controller that can control up to 255 PTZ cameras on a single network and can scale to even the most complex installations. PTZ Keyboard can control P100 over NDI® or by RS422 / RS232 when using in SDI mode.
Adaptive bit rate. Slide your way to glory.
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.
