What's in the Box

  • BirdDog P240 40X Full NDI PTZ Camera with HDMI/3G-SDI (Black)
  • Audio Breakout Cable
  • Limited 2-Year Warranty

The black P240 40X Full NDI PTZ Camera with HDMI/3G-SDI from BirdDog is a Full NDI PTZ camera that offers increased light sensitivity via its Sony Exmor 1/2.5" CMOS 8.5MP sensor while capturing sharp and vivid images in resolutions up to 1080p60. Output options include NDI, HDMI, and 3G-SDI as well as balanced XLR audio via the included breakout cable, which has a locking connector for added reliability and also has an XLR input option that provides phantom power. The camera features an integrated ND filter.

The IP output delivers Full NDI and other flavors of NDI, with optional BirdDog Cloud 3.0 integration unlocking access from globally connected, remote production locations. The IP address is visible via the integrated OLED display, which also displays the device name, stream name, resolution, and frame rate being used. The P240 supports Full NDI 5.5 for optimal compatibility across all NDI ecosystems.

NDI Video Scopes

The P240 can generate scopes to send out as NDI, NDI Proxy, or both. This allows for monitoring scopes on the NDI Proxy while sending a clean main NDI feed simultaneously. Choose from histogram, waveform, vectorscope, or RGB parade and the position on the NDI stream.

360° Mohawk Tally

The innovative Mohawk tally gives a full 360° view, so you'll never be caught out wondering which camera you need to be talking to.

NDI Genlock

Select an NDI source to be the timing master to provide more predictable timing in multi-camera environments.

FreeD for Free

FreeD is a protocol for sending PTZ positioning data to AR/VR systems including Unreal Engine, Brainstorm, Vizrt's Viz Virtual Studio, and it's all built right into the BirdUI.
