BirdDog Eyes P200 – World’s Best Full NDI
The BirdDog Eyes P200 is designed for serious production, the image quality of P200 is best in class. By teaming up BirdDog’s custom NDI® silicon chip, a Sony CMOS Backlit Sensor, and a true Sony Image Module, P200 has lightening auto focus, incredibly sharp images, and insanely fast zoom. P200 has frame rates up to 1080p60, 30x optical zoom, and features independent, live triple outputs in SDI, HDMI and Full NDI®
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. P200 is a Full NDI® camera.
Tally lights that just work.
NDI® has tally information built into the metadata so when P200 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.
Sony Sensor. You deserve the best.
The best pictures come from the best silicon. P200 is teams up a world class Sony CMOS Backlit Sensor with the BirdDog custom NDI® chip to form a match made in silicon heaven. Your productions deserve the best.
Sony Image Module. Optics done right.
Lightning auto focus. Insanely fast zoom. Precision optics. The only way to achieve the best picture quality is with image module made by the world’s best. P200 uses a true Sony image module to give unparalleled performance, picture quality, and responsiveness.
Triple output. NDI®, SDI and HDMI.
With NDI®, SDI, and HDMI simultaneous outputs the P200 is ready to go live with your full NDI® workflow today or if you are still in an old school SDI workflow you can control via RS422, RS485, and RS232. No matter which way you like to work, you can rest easy in the knowledge that P200 has you covered for all workflow situations.
PTZ Keyboard. Take control.
Combine P200 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 P200 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.
