Features 30x optical zoom lens and support for PoE for outstanding operability and installation flexibility

Full HD camera with integrated pan-tilt for lectures, weddings and a wide variety of applications.

The AW-HE40 series of integrated full HD cameras performs in a wide variety of onsite shooting applications that require high-quality video, such as conferences, lecture capture and other events, thanks to its high-performance zoom, wide angle of view and outstanding colour reproducibility.

In addition to IP video transmission, support for PoE (Power or Ethernet) enables power to be supplied via a LAN cable

The result is installation flexibility. It also supports HD-IP video output, output of video and audio via USB, and SD card recording.

Developed 1/2.3-type MOS Sensor

Equipped with a developed 1/2.3-type MOS sensor and DSP (Digital Signal Processor) for high sensitivity and high resolution.

High Performance Optical 30x Zoom Lens/Super Resolution 40x Zoom

In addition to a 30x optical zoom, the AW-HE40 series can zoom up to 40x while maintaining high resolution thanks to Super Resolution technology. It also features a 16x digital zoom and a 1.4x digital extender, which enables the AW-HE40 series to shoot in large conference halls and classrooms.

Note: Picture quality is lower with the digital zoom.

Night Mode (supports automatic switching)

Switching to Night Mode makes shooting possible even in low light conditions in which shooting is normally difficult, such as when observing wildlife. The AW-HE40 series can also be set to switch to the mode automatically depending on surrounding light levels.

Note: Video output is monochrome.

Equipped with High Dynamic Range (HDR) Mode

In addition to conventional Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) and Digital Noise Reduction (DNR), the AW-HE40 series are newly equipped with High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode. When shooting and synthesising two images with differing exposure times, the AW-HE40 series can create video with high visibility that corrects for halation and black defects even under backlit conditions.

Outputs Still Image During Preset Movements; Supports One-Camera Operations

The new Freeze During Preset function enables to freeze the video during preset playback. The immediately preceding still image is output during preset movements so that the swivelling movement is not displayed, making operations possible with one camera.

JPEG Image Saving

Equipped with a JPEG Image Saving function that enables camera video to be saved, played back and deleted on a microSD card as still JPEG images.

Need to stream or conduct webinars? Or work remotely and need to control cameras? You may already have the answer.

If you have the AW-UE4, AW-HE40, AW-HE42 or the AW-UE70 ProPTZ cameras, you already have a 'Super Web Cam', a web cam with quality, scope and range far beyond that of a standard web cam.

With an increasing number of people contacting customers, colleagues and associates with Zoom, Skype or Microsoft Teams, we wanted to remind you that these cameras have USB Video Out (HDMI or SDI) as well as IP streaming. These cameras can be configured to accept audio so that you can deploy them as a 'Super Web Cam'. There is also a FREE Virtual USB App available so that, in some cases, the cameras can be left in place and the USB Video Out can be accessed without the need for USB extenders.

Another great tool is the FREE PTZ Control Centre App. This app can register up to 1000 cameras and will allow you to control any of the above cameras from a remote location. All you need to do is to be on the same network as the cameras, to set up your security privileges and connect the cameras via IP.
