A totally rebuilt codec engine brings even lower latency to the P400 and P4K and computationally higher picture quality. Better pictures, less bandwidth, faster. Cam Control 2.0 has been updated to include all the features found in the OSD of P400 and P4K so you can now remotely shade the cameras from the beautiful Cam Control interface.

4:2:2 4K. Numbers matter.

P400 debuts the world’s first 4K NDI with chroma subsampling at 4:2:2 which can be decoded natively in hardware by BirdDog’s 4K Family of NDI Encoders and Decoders. If decoding with a 4:2:0 receiver the stream will automatically serve 4:2:0 and this is what will be decoded.

BirdDog Cam Control allows full access to the entire colour matrix, black levels, and even the gamma to be able to shade your P400’s like a total pro. Right click to view camera full screen on a secondary monitor to really dial in the look you want and then copy the settings to colour match cameras in seconds. Yes that’s right. Colour match cameras in seconds.

Incredible low light performance.

In low light conditions the camera automatically switches from day to night mode, removing the IR-cut filter to boost sensitivity for clear pictures in near-darkness.

Triple output. NDI, 6G-SDI and HDMI.

With NDI, 6G-SDI, and HDMI simultaneous outputs, the P400 is ready to go live with your full NDI workflow today or if you are still in an old school SDI workflow you can use as an SDI camera and ease your way into the world of NDI when you are ready. We’ll be here to welcome you into the future with open arms.

Genlock. Let that sync in.

With Genlock you can now synchronise multiple cameras using the Genlock input. Now all your cameras can be hitting your NDI enabled vision mixer at the same time and lets you eliminate the need to add frame buffers.
