Your entry into the world of NDI®.
Built on BirdDog’s custom NDI® silicon chip with a Sony CMOS Sensor, the P100 PTZ camera is your entry into the world of full NDI®. Featuring frame rates up to 1080p60, 10x optical zoom, USB 2.0, HDMI, SDI, and Full 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. P100 is a Full NDI® camera.
Sony Sensor. You deserve the best.
The best pictures come from the best silicon. P100 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.
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.
Webcam now. Production cam later.
P100 might be the best camera investment you can make. Use it now as a super high quality camera for Zoom, Teams, Meet, Chime, Messenger, and even Skype if that’s still your thang, and then when the world returns to normal you can use it as a production camera with it’s broadcast video connections – SDI, HDMI, and NDI.
Triple output. NDI®, SDI and HDMI.
With NDI®, SDI, and HDMI simultaneous outputs the P100 is ready to go live with full NDI® today or can be use as a traditional SDI/HDMI camera. You can rest easy in the knowledge that P100 has you covered for all workflow situations.
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.
