BDP400B features 10-bit NDI in stunning 4K resolution & allows chroma subsampling in your choice of 4:2:0 or 4:2:2. P400 teams up BirdDog’s custom NDI® silicon chip, a 4K Sony CMOS Backlit sensor, & a true Sony Image Module. P400 includes professional-level color tools including Colour Matrix control, Black level, Gamma including 512 pre-set gamma positions.
Triple output. NDI®, 6G-SDI & HDMI.
With NDI®, 6G-SDI, & 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 & 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.
20x Optical Zoom. Fast & Crisp.
The 20x optical zoom offers a bright F2.0 aperture with a super smooth & fast zoom. Transition from wide to tele & recall pre-set positions quickly & with super fine precision. The incredible optical zoom function makes P400 perfect for sports such as football, baseball, hockey, ski fields, basketball, soccer, & more.

10-Bit 4:2:2 4K. Numbers matter.
P400 debuts the world’s first 4K 10-bit NDI in full I-Frame chroma subsampling at 4:2:2 which can be decoded natively in hardware by BirdDog’s 4K Family of NDI Encoders & Decoders. If decoding with an 8-bit 4:2:0 receiver the stream will automatically serve 8-bit 4:2:0 & this is what will be decoded. Think of it as an automatic & virtual handshake.

BirdDog Cam Control. Shade like a pro, bro.
BirdDog Cam Control allows full access to the entire colour matrix, black levels, & 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 & 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 & HDMI.
With NDI®, 6G-SDI, & 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 & 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 & lets you eliminate the need to add frame buffers.

Superfine Robotics. Precise control at your fingers.
P400’s robotics are super precise & super sensitive. Wind down the panning & tilting speeds to create super professional shots that are dramatic, or crank up the speeds for high action sports to allow you to follow the movements.

Tally light that just works.
NDI has tally information built into the metadata so when P400 is connected to an NDI enabled switcher the tally light on the front of the unit to ensure your on air talent will always know which camera is live. There is no configuration required; it just works.

PoE or DC. You have the power.
P400 can be powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE++) for single cable operation that can carry Video, Audio, Power, Tally, & Intercom or you can choose to use the included power adapter.

PTZ Keyboard. Take control.
Combine P400 with the BirdDog PTZ Keyboard & you have total control of all functions remotely. PTZ Keyboard is a full featured PTZ Keyboard that can control up to 255 PTZ cameras on a single network so can scale to even the most complex installations. PTZ Keyboard can control P400 over NDI® or by RS422 / RS232 when using in SDI mode.

RESTful API. DIY automation.
Download the free BirdDog RESTful API & program your own automation for all BirdDog hardware endpoints, including cameras.

Adaptive bit rate. Slide your way to glory.
Full NDI® is a variable bit rate codec. In normal circumstances BirdDog recommends allowing around 140Mbps in HD, or 6 streams per 1GbE cable with some headroom. In 4K it is recommended to allow around 300Mbps or 3 streams with some headroom to allow for any unforeseen spikes. 
With BirdDog’s tools you can select the bit rate to suit your bandwidth & requirements. In both HD you can slide between 80-180Mbps & in 4K you can select the data rate to be anywhere between 60 & 360Mbps.

CAM CONTROL 3.0

Total Camera Control.
The free Cam Control app is the easiest and most user-friendly way to dial in BirdDog cameras. Simply load on a Windows 10 machine on the same network as your BirdDog cameras and access all functions of the camera through a beautiful interface. Auto Tracking is built right in, with adjustable parameters to track via facial or body recognition.

Auto Tracking. Facial and Body Recognition.
Cam Control features fully automated tracking with adjustable parameters to dial in the sensitivity of how you wish to track your talent. You can set to track via facial or body recognition which gives maximum flexibility depending on the environment.

Use Preset 1 to save your favourite camera settings and when you fire up your cameras on your next job, Cam Control will already be set. No all you need to do is work out what you are going to do with all that time you just saved. We strongly suggest cat videos on YouTube
