BirdDog P4K NDI Camera

High Quality. NDI. 4K.

BirdDog’s P4K NDI PTZ camera is billed as the highest quality, fully NDI camera available on the planet to date. This camera IS the real deal. With an inch-sized Sony Exmor R CMOS backlit sensor and 14.4m effective pixels the P4K can deliver dazzling 4K resolution images over NDI.

More than a Production PTZ

This PTZ is unique in its capabilities. The P4K is designed for the most demanding live production shoots and supports all traditional frame rates to capture a cinematic look. Furthermore, due to its exceptional light sensitivity, the P4K is a premier choice for all broadcast applications: sports, remote studios, newsrooms, houses of worship (HoW)…and any shoot where quality matters.
