The UE150 features a larger tally light for more effective on-air indication where needed, as well as a modern, bold new design.

The large 1 inch MOS sensor enables high sensitivity shooting with low noise. The sensor boasts a light-capturing area that is approximately four times larger than that of the 1/2.3-type sensor to guarantee a wide dynamic range. Combined with our intelligent imaging functions, the AW-UE150 brings image quality never before seen in a PTZ camera.

V-LOG Output Support

The AW-UE150 is the first robotic PTZ camera in the world to incorporate support for V-LOG video output, a key feature of high-end cinema cameras such as the VariCam. The ability for the UE150 to output in a LOG format opens up a wide-range of video production possibilities. The wide dynamic range and color gamut provide images suitable for color grading, helping to facilitate a consistent video look and enabling color matching with the Netflix approved VariCam cinema cameras and the AK-UC4000 broadcast camera system.

The robotic camera's V-LOG output mode enables the LOG-profile video to be output via 12G-SDI, 3G-SDI, monitor out, and HDMI.  Additionally, two types of settings, V-LOG and V-709, can be selected independently per output interface. This allows 4K V-LOG video for color grading to be simultaneously output with full-HD V-709 video for on-site camera monitoring.

View the Entire Scene

Widest in its class, the 75.1-degree horizontal wide angle of the AW-UE150 gives you a phenomenal video range, allowing you to capture the full shot in theaters, stadiums & lecture halls, despite any installation space limitations you may encounter.

FULL HD 16:9 (1920 x 1080) 59.94p, 50p, 29.97p**, 29.97PsF, 25p**, 25PsF, 23.98p***, 24p**, 23.98p**, 23.98PsF, 59.94i, 50i
HD 16:9 (1280 x 720) 59.94p, 50p


HDR (HLG) Support

The camera supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) to prevent blown-out highlights and blocked-up shadows and enable picture quality close to that of the naked eye. The color balance is shifted to display according to the BT.2020 color gamut.


Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) Loaded

Vibrations of the mounted surface caused by doors opening and closing, audio systems and other installed equipment are automatically corrected to ensure stable shooting.

Night Mode Support

Equipped with Night Mode for infrared shooting. The use of IR rays in low-light situations enables shooting in situations that would normally be difficult, such as when capturing wildlife (image output is black and white).


Incredible Pan and Tilt Performance

Pan and tilt operate from a minimum speed of 0.08°/s to a maximum of 180°/s in high-speed mode. This is approximately 3 times the speed of our current product for rapid capture of the intended target. Furthermore, a low noise level of NC35 or less has been ensured when operating in normal mode, which is perfect for shooting in quiet environments.

Cropping Function

Images shot in 4K can be output in their entirety while simultaneously cropping parts of those images. The cropping position can be specified from a maximum of 3 locations to enable simple operation from the Remote Camera Controller AW-RP150, a web browser or other operations screen.


12G-SDI, 3G-SDI, HDMI, Optical Fiber & Multiple Interfaces Supported

A wide range of outputs are supported: 12G-SDI, 3G-SDI, HDMI, IP, and even Optical Fiber output. The addition of 4K/HD simultaneous output guarantees the right output for the operation at hand. 4K video can be down-converted to HD directly within the camera.

AR / VR Positioning

To be able to incorporate realistic VR (virtual reality) or AR (augmented reality) studio sets in your live productions, accurate camera positioning data is imperative. The AW-UE150 features the FreeD protocol, which provides you with the option to output Pan / Tilt / Zoom / Iris information via Serial (RS 422) and IP (UDP) directly from the camera to your tracking system.

The FreeD protocol is supported by most popular virtual set systems, including solutions such as Brainstorm, Ross UX XPERIENCE / Xpression, The Future Group Pixotope, Vizrt Viz Virtual Studio, and Zero Density. The UE150's FreeD compliant command enables the integration of robotic camera systems into virtual studios / virtual sets without an encoder.

Fresh New Web Interface

Camera IP image output, settings, and control can be performed using a web browser on a computer connected via an IP network. In addition to PCs and Macs, iPads, iPhones, Androids and other mobile devices can be used for operation, and this pursuit of easy-to-use interfaces has enabled smooth camera control from remote locations.

Flexible Installation & Mounting

The AW-UE150 robotic camera is lightweight and compact enough for easy permanent or portable installs. It’s equipped with a turn lock mechanism for easy installation and comes standard with a safety cable for extra security and peace of mind.  

Blend-in: The camera is exceptionally easy to integrate and is available in two colors (AW-UE150W: pearl white / AW-UE150K: black matte) to suit a wide range of applications.
Ceiling Mount: A twist-lock ceiling mount is included as a standard accessory.
Tripod Mount for Mobile Production: The UE150 is also equipped with a 1/4-20 tripod mounting screw receptacle and a safety lanyard for use with many mounting and grip systems.
Wall Mount: An optional heavy-duty wall mount is available in either black (FEC-150WMK) or white (FEC-150WMW).
Outdoors: Protective heated / cooled outdoor housings are available. Designed for direct compatibility with the UE150, the enclosures are made from impact-resistant polycarbonate thermal plastic and are designed to protect the camera from water, dust and other challenging conditions.  

Direct Broadcast via RTMP / RTMPS

RTMP / RTMPS (Real-Time Messaging Protocol) is supported by the AW-UE150 to enable direct upload of video to live-streaming services such as YouTube and Facebook Live. This means a live stream can be broadcast directly from the camera.

Integrates into NDI Ecosystem

The AW-UE150W/K can be upgraded to an NDI|HX compatible model if purchasing a license. Highly efficient NDI|HX compatibility enables high-quality video to be encoded and transmitted in real-time and input signals to be directly sent to a switcher (such as the AV-HLC100 Stream Studio) without the need for an IP decoder.

Optimized for LED Stage Lights

With the increasing use of LED lights for production and stage lighting, an issue which keeps coming up is the over saturation of certain colors. To keep this under control and to provide accurate video image reproduction, the AW-UE150 has an "Adaptive Matrix" feature. When enabled, this function automatically controls matrix calculation coefficients, aiding in preventing blue channel clipping when capturing scenes with blue LED lights. This enables you to keep shooting in these environments while preventing color overload or high saturation, even during live events, in theaters and on stages with very strong blue LED lights.

Large-Scale Production

IP connection from the Remote Camera Controller AW-RP150 through a HUB (switching hub) enables control of up to 200 AW-UE150W/K units. Furthermore, a single AW-UE150W/K unit can be controlled from up to 5 x AW-RP150 units.

Optical Fiber Support

The AW-UE150 PTZ camera features a slot for an SFP+ optical fiber module. Installing a fiber module enables the UE150 to transmit uncompressed video over infrastructure fiber, making it useful for extended cable runs typically found in large facilities, stadiums and arenas.

Single Cable Installation with PoE++

With PoE++ technology , the AW-UE150 offers an optimal level of installation flexibility, providing not just power to the camera, but also enabling control and video output, all via a single LAN cable. Using PoE++ with the UE150 camera simplifies cable runs, decreases overall installation costs, and in some cases, eliminates the need for having a dedicated electrician onsite for the install.

Secure IP for Video Production

Upon setup, the AW-UE150 camera prompts users to create their own unique username/password, automatically integrating a secure (non-default) login into their IP video workflow and adding an extra level of security to their video production. For users not utilizing IP for video streaming or control, the physical IP output can be disabled (within the menu) to help prevent unauthorized network access.

Integrated Tally Light

The large tally light of the AW-UE150 can be disabled if preferred, but provides high-visibility for your on-screen talent when enabled, providing them an extra level of confidence when you're broadcasting live. With the option to adjust the brightness of the tally light, you can make sure it fits into any environment the installation calls for. The main power indicator light can be turned off as well to put the camera in stealth mode.

Audio Input / Embedding

The AW-UE150 camera features a 3.5mm stereo mini jack for MIC/LINE input and supports audio embedding and encoding. Audio output to IP is also supported.

Panasonic Pro Protection

The AW-UE150 features an exceptional standard warranty, with enhanced service, support & training packages available. The Panasonic Pro Protection Premium plan provides users with the peace of mind of accidental damage coverage up to $7,000 for the lifetime of the product.
