Panasonic AW-UE40 4K Camera & Integrated PTZ Camera with NDI|HX
The Panasonic AW-UE40 4K PTZ camera is a versatile solution for various video shooting applications, from online classes and seminars to multi-purpose events, entry-level studio configurations, higher education, and corporate installs. This camera supports NDI|HX version 2 and SRT protocols, providing high security and flexibility to achieve smart wiring and smooth operation. The AW-UE40 has a compact design and operates quietly, making it easy to install and use, even for people unfamiliar with video shooting or camera operation.
The AW-UE40’s new direct drive system is an essential feature, providing improved responsiveness and quietness. With the reduced operating sound of NC25 or lower, this camera offers faster, precise movement with higher accuracy in preset positioning, making it Panasonic’s fastest, quietest, and most accurate PTZ camera yet. This feature opens up more opportunities for PTZ operation, allowing for smooth and quiet vertical and horizontal movement.
The single-cable solution is another feature that makes the AW-UE40 stand out. This camera supports PoE+ for camera power, control, and video transmission over a single cable, simplifying wiring and operation. This feature also makes it easier to handle and install in any kind of setting, especially when positioning the camera on trusses or ceilings.
The AW-UE40’s upgraded 4K sensor is also a significant improvement, producing stunning UHD video with true 4K resolution of 1,500 TV lines in UHD. The UE40 supports both HDMI and IP, making it an ideal option for use within existing HD or 4K workflows thanks to its simultaneous video output feature. With a new wide-angle lens with a 74.1° field of view and a 24x optical zoom, the AW-UE40 enables a wide area to be shot from a limited installation space while maintaining high image quality at high zoom ratios. The intelligent zoom extends its capabilities to 28x in UHD and 36x in Full-HD.
Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) has been added to the unit to ensure smooth pan-tilt movement when in busier environments or moving or being placed onto a robotic system, for example. The AW-UE40 includes a new powerful chipset platform, making the PTZ incredibly responsive and capable of increased video processing tasks for higher image quality and lower latency.
The AW-UE40 also offers various IP transmission protocols out of the box, such as Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) and NDI|HX version 2, which is available via an optional paid-for upgrade. SRT maintains stability while transmitting high-quality video, even in unstable network environments, and allows video distribution over the public internet in a secure and reliable way. NDI|HX version 2 enables video transmission at low bitrates over a single LAN cable. The AW-UE40 also supports RTMP/RTMPS, providing direct streaming to live broadcasting services such as YouTube Live and Facebook Live from the camera directly.
A brand new web interface has been introduced for professional operators to easily navigate the advanced GUI for operators working within darker environments. Panasonic offers an entire ecosystem of solutions to enable the new PTZ camera to be smoothly introduced into existing camera systems. This includes use with its remote camera controllers, PTZ Control Center centralized control software, and its automatic tracking software for presentations and lectures, enabled by face recognition and human body detection.
In conclusion, the Panasonic AW-UE40 PTZ camera is an excellent option for people who want to utilize online video streaming more frequently or enhance the quality of online video streaming. With its compact design, single-cable solution, and quiet operation, this camera is easy to handle and install in any kind of setting.

Provides a stable hybrid environment for connecting online and offline
- 4K resolution, wide angle, and high-magnification zoom for delivering “the atmosphere of the hall.”
- Auto Tracking Software for reliable following and capturing of the speaker.
- Secure and stable transmitting protocol for reduced risk of communication trouble.
- Smooth playback of high-quality videos.
Auto Tracking Software for reliable following and capturing of the speaker.
Panasonic AW-UE40 supports Panasonic AW-SF100/AW-SF200 Auto Tracking Software, so the camera can follow and capture the presenter/teacher moving around on the podium while talking. Since the software performs the camerawork to follow the speaker without the supervisor’s detailed camera operation, realistic scenes can be recorded at all times.
Secure and stable streaming protocol for reduced risk of communication trouble.
Panasonic AW-UE40 supports SRT1, a next-generation video transport protocol that works well even with an unstable network environment and which provides robust security. It can also minimize risks such as information leakage, so it can be used safely for any video content.
Key points of SRT
- Security – Encrypts video data before data transfer to assure high security.
- Stability – The packet loss recovery function automatically detects packets lost during the data resends them to achieve stable, disturbance-free video data transfer.
- Supports data transfer over the public line – The flexible and highly adaptable buffer management system assures stable video data transfer even in a network environment with an unstable bit rate. Public internet can be used for long-distance video data transfer.
Unit size and quietness for flexible use at any video shooting sites
- The compact dome-shaped design blends in with the context. Lightweight and small size give added flexibility in camera installation.
- Quiet operating sound allows the use of the camera in any situation.
- Image stabilizer ensures stable video shooting.
- Tally LED Limit
The compact dome-shaped design blends in with any atmosphere. Lightweight and small size allow flexible installation.
The gentle dome-shape design makes the camera movements invisible, thus allowing video shooting in a natural condition without giving an exact feeling. The compact unit weighs only about 1.8 kg for a space-saving installation. The AW-UE40 can directly replace an active Panasonic PTZ camera.
Quiet enough to allow use in any place and for any applications.
Since the Panasonic AW-UE40 4K PTZ Camera operates very quietly, it can be used in a meeting held in a noiseless conference hall or in a class held in a spacious lecture room without worrying about the operating sound of the camera unit.
The new direct-drive motor is quiet during panning (horizontal movement) and tilting (vertical movement) so the camera operator does not interfere with important meetings and lectures.
Image stabilizer for stable video shooting.
Even when the camera unit is mounted in an unstable place, the image stabilizer always assures clear images. The Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) makes fine alterations to the lens by smoothly moving the camera unit, thus minimizing image shakes and capturing stable, high-quality images.
Tally LED Limit
This is a setting that does not turn on the tally lamps of cameras installed on stages at events, especially concert halls, and stages, and prevents distracting the performers and allows for more natural filming.
The tally indicator on the controller lights up so that the camera person is aware of which camera’s video is being used.
The ease of preparing and setting up the system is an important thought for developing online video streaming. Multiple AW-UE40 PTZ camera units can be utilized from a single controller, so wiring is simple.
The AW-UE40 can be linked easily with a streaming platform or online conferencing system. The product is easy to operate even for people who are not familiar with the system operation.
