P400 White. 4K 10-Bit Full NDI with Sony Sensor
Stunning 4K NDI® with incredible colour tools.
P400 features stunning 4K resolution NDI and 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, and a true Sony Image Module.
P400 includes professional-level colour tools including Colour Matrix control, Black level, Gamma including 512 pre-set gamma positions.
New Codec Engine.
A totally rebuilt codec engine brings even lower latency to the P400 and P4K and computationally higher picture quality. Better pictures, less bandwidth, faster.
Tighter Cam Control Integration.
Cam Control 2.0 has been updated to include all the features found in the OSD of P400 and P4K so you can now remotely shade the cameras from the beautiful Cam Control interface.
4:2:2 4K. Numbers matter.
P400 debuts the world’s first 4K NDI with chroma subsampling at 4:2:2 which can be decoded natively in hardware by BirdDog’s 4K Family of NDI Encoders and Decoders. If decoding with a 4:2:0 receiver the stream will automatically serve 4:2:0 and this is what will be decoded. Think of it as an automatic and virtual handshake.
Free Cam Control. Shade like a pro, bro.
BirdDog Cam Control allows full access to the entire colour matrix, black levels, and 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 and then copy the settings to colour match cameras in seconds. Yes that’s right. Colour match cameras in seconds. And it’s 100% FREE with all BirdDog PTZ cameras.
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 and HDMI.
With NDI®, 6G-SDI, and 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 and 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 and lets you eliminate the need to add frame buffers.
Superfine Robotics. Precise control at your fingers.
P400’s robotics are super precise and super sensitive. Wind down the panning and 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.
20x Optical Zoom. Fast and Crisp.
The 20x optical zoom offers a bright F2.0 aperture with a super smooth and fast zoom. Transition from wide to tele and recall pre-set positions quickly and with super fine precision.
The incredible optical zoom function makes P400 perfect for sports such as football, baseball, hockey, ski fields, basketball, soccer, and more.
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, and Intercom or you can choose to use the included power adapter.

BirdDog and Bolin. BFF’s.
Sometimes a partnership is so strong it creates more than the sum of the individual parts. BirdDog and Bolin have joined forces to bring the World’s Best range of NDI PTZ gear to market. With Bolin’s commitment to using the highest quality Sony Sensors and their ability to build weatherproof cameras BirdDog knew there was only one PTZ partner that shared BirdDog’s vision of bringing to market the highest quality products at reasonable prices. Through BirdDog’s NDI know-how and Bolin’s unrivalled PTZ engineering pedigree an unbreakable partnership has formed. Batman and Robin. Mulder and Scully. Joanie and Chachi. You get the idea.
