—South Korean AV manufacturer announces PTZ cameras with NDI.—

The market for cameras with NDI is growing. However, there is still room for higher resolution cameras with NDI. Panasonic has launched the first 4K/60 PTZ cameras with NDI (AW-UE100) which also support Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) Now South Korean AV startup Salrayworks plans to get into the high resolution NDI market in 2021.

To start in that direction, the company has announced the launch of the Sharon Series PTZ cameras that incorporate NDI technology. These cameras are using NDI version 4.5 technology implemented on an Intel FPGA through Salrayworks’ own technology, and plans to use that as the entry point to 4K. NDI is a high-performance video-over-IP standard that allows anyone to use real time, ultra-low latency video on existing gigabit networks.

This month, Salrayworks is scheduled to launch a series of PTZ models including the Sharon 360 model which can rotate a full 360 degrees. It uses Sony’s 30x zoom sensor which has excellent AF performance. The inexpensive Sharon 20 model with a 20x zoom manufactured in Korea will be released early in January. Salrayworks is intent on bringing the low latency and high-quality video of high bandwidth NDI PTZ cameras for many end users such as sports producers, houses of worship, schools, and conferences.

The Sharon 360 PTZ camera has focused on an overall circular design that does not point to a specific person or object. The zoom head can be rotated 360° so you can shoot to the rear of the camera. Both the Sharon 360 and Sharon 30 are equipped with the highest specification Sony 30x optical zoom, enabling the closest natural color, accuracy, and fast auto-focus. The Sharon 20 equipped with 20x optical zoom made in Korea is aimed at entering the relatively inexpensive high bandwidth NDI PTZ camera market for schools, small studios, and houses of worship.

The models being released are all 1080p HD and next year, PTZ cameras that combine 4K60 and high bandwidth NDI will be released.

Sharon Series PTZ cameras are shipping this month.
