News Image
Lumens® Digital Optics has unveiled two 20x HD PTZ cameras with new high speed motors, new generation video sensors and new imaging processors.

The VC-A51P with secure IP streaming and the VC-A51PN unit with NDI®|HX for network production both feature a new generation, high sensitivity 1/2.8" 2.16 MP Sony CMOS sensor with WDR (wide dynamic range) and 3D noise reduction to deliver exceptional image quality. With advanced auto-focus, and auto-white balance algorithms, these cameras produce sharp and well-exposed video even in low light environments. The cameras integrate a new motorized mechanism for fluid 3-axis motion and movement at up-to 300° per second.

"These new models feature the next generation, high sensitivity Sony sensor paired with an advanced image processor to deliver superb video in all lighting conditions, and very low latency output. The other major advance is in the robotic mechanism which can pan and tilt the camera at speeds 2.5 times faster than the previous generation. VC-A51P and VC-A51PN replace Lumens’ VC-A50 models which have been extremely popular in the video and AV markets," noted Joris Nevens, General Manager at Lumens Digital Optics, Europe.

For integration into traditional AV and video workflows, both models incorporate 3G-SDI and HDMI ports. The cameras also feature multiple IP control and streaming protocols, including RTMPS and RTMP, in order to work seamlessly with popular streaming services such as YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook. Incorporating SRT, the cameras offer broadcasters reliable and secure remote production over the Internet at very low latency.

The VC-A51P and VC-A51PN support RTSP output for compatibility with IP-based production and streaming platforms, including Wowza, OBS, Wirecast and vMix. The VC-A51PN adds the high efficiency NDI®|HX protocol for low latency video networking using Newtek’s popular open standard. NDI®|HX enables live video distribution and production over 1- and 10-Gigabit IP networks.

Cost-effective, well-connected, easy to control and with excellent video quality, the new VC-A51P range will be ideal for a range of customers in video production, AV, conference production, education and houses of worship.
