Remotely Capture Images in All Kinds of Outdoor Environments

Watching live broadcasts of outdoor sports and live performances through streamed video has become a popular form of entertainment. As the use of video for a variety of different business activities and daily life has become common, the capability to produce and utilise video with limited resources is becoming more important.

The AW-UR100 is a 4K PTZ camera that captures high-precision images in 4K/60p supported by D.I.S.S (Dynamic Image Stabilising System). It is durable enough to withstand harsh outdoor environments for on-site management such as airports and warehouses in coastal regions, on ships, as well as for live broadcasts during heavy snow storms or typhoons. A wide range of protocols and I/Fs enable flexible and efficient system construction and reduce the risk of missing shots and mistakes, providing peace of mind for video producers.

High-precision Image Capture That Never Misses Those Crucial Moments

When capturing images from various angles in large stadiums, music festivals, and other large-scale venues, you can’t predict where or from which angle you will have a chance to capture critically important scenes. Equipped with a wide lens and featuring 4K/60p, AW-UR100 can cover wide shooting areas and capture high-resolution video even when zooming digitally. D.I.S.S reduces the risk of shaky images. With capabilities for capturing high-definition images at a variety of venues, you won’t miss any critical scenes or highlights from the event.

Equipped with three types of image stabilizing: O.I.S, E.I.S, and D.I.S.S (Dynamic Image Stabilizing System)

One of the challenges for outdoor PTZ cameras such as those mounted on a high pole or ceiling-mounted cameras has been low-frequency large amplitude swing from wind. To eliminate this problem, the AW-UR100 is equipped with three types of image stabilising systems; optical image stabilisation (O.IS.), electronic image stabilisation (E.I.S), and Pan/Tilt image stabilisation (D.I.S.S, or Dynamic Image Stabilising System). The Pan/Tilt function has improved responsiveness enables smooth rotation of the camera to minimize trembling caused by external disturbances. In addition, the two-step vibration correction with O.I.S and E.I.S provides stable image capture regardless of the installation environment.

Cropping (+ Zoom) Function

The AW-UR100 can output entire images in 4K and at the same time create cropped shots from portions of the video. You can specify up to three different positions for cropping. The AW-UR100 can be easily accessed and operated from the remote camera controller AW-RP150GJ/RP60GJ or from a PC. In addition, you can zoom in on cropped images up to five times using the cropping zoom function*.

* The image quality of FHD cropping cannot be retained when cropping zoom is used.

Durability for Continuous Shooting Even in Harsh Environments

The AW-UR100 can withstand environments susceptible to salt damage, such as image capture for news footage at airports, broadcasting live in warehouse area in coastal regions, or video shooting on large ships. It is also suitable for live broadcasting from places which can be affected by rain, wind, snow, or ultraviolet rays. The camera is also hermetically sealed to keep out yellow sand and flying sand. The AW-UR100 is also equipped with a defroster that warms the camera to prevent accumulation of frost, ice, and condensation, even in extremely cold environments (-15°C), and it has a wiper that keeps the lens clear even in harsh weather conditions. While improving shooting performance, the AW-UR100 maintains the durability that had been recognized in the HR140, enabling high-quality image capture in harsh environments, where video crews would have a hard time working.

Passing Six Rigorous Durability Tests

The following six different verification tests have been conducted to achieve the durability that is essential for outdoor-ready cameras.

  1. Salt-water Spray Test
    Casings are sprayed with a sodium chloride (NaCl) solution from a salt-water spray tester to evaluate the corrosion resistance of the rust-resistant paint.
    Heavy-duty salt-resistant coating: Protects the metal used in the casings from rusting.
     
  2. Sunshine Weather Test
    Rain is simulated at regular intervals while the equipment is exposed to ultraviolet rays for 46 days to evaluate the weather resistance of resins and the effects of ultraviolet rays on moisture resistant coatings.
    Heavy-duty salt-damage-resistant coatings protect resins used in casings from ultraviolet rays and moisture.
     
  3. Waterproof and Dustproof Test (Protection Class IP65)
    Dustproof and waterproof performance are tested to ensure “no dust penetrates into the equipment” and “the equipment is not affected by water jets from nozzles from all directions.” You can use the AW-UR100 outdoors in the rain and in places that have flying sand and dust.
    Dustproof test: The casing is continuously exposed to dust under pressure.
    Waterproof test: The casing is continuously sprayed water jets from all directions.
     
  4. CASS Test
    The casing is placed in a test environment in which a solution of acetic acid, sodium chloride (NaCl), and copper chloride (CuCl2) is sprayed by the CASS to assess corrosion resistance in the rust-resistant coating.
     
  5. Wind Tunnel Test
    All performance is guaranteed even in environments with wind speeds of up to 15 m/sec through a test that confirms the durability of the casing. The camera also maintains basic performance even at wind speeds of 50 m/sec without being damaged.
     
  6. Seismic Vibration
    Vulnerability and durability for resonance point exploration is tested. Vibration resistance is evaluated using simulated earthquake waves based on data from the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami, and other regional earthquakes.

Equipped with a Defroster (-15°C)

A defroster prevents frost, ice, and condensation from accumulating, even in extremely cold environments of as low as -15°C., by warming up the camera. Snow melts off and visibility can be maintained even when snow gets on the glass surface of the lens, reducing the risk of missing shots.

Equipped with a Wiper on the Lens

The lens is kept clear even in harsh environments by using a wiper. By connecting the wiper unit’s washer control terminal to the control terminal of a commercially available washer unit, the wiper and washer can both be operated from the controller (AW-RP150GJ/RP60GJ*)
