High Quality Video Shooting
A Four-Drive Lens System for High-Image-Quality Zooming in 4K Shooting
With the four-drive lens system, three zoom lenses and one focus lens are driven independently and simultaneously. Since the four groups of lenses can be driven separately, we were able to efficiently minimize the size and drive range of each lens and thereby achieve a smaller body and a zoom mechanism with high magnification and high image quality. Despite their compact size, the AW-UN70W/K and AW-UE70W/K have a high-resolution 20x optical zoom and a high-performance iA 22x zoom (4K mode).
Four Types of Output Connectors. 4K Output Via HDMI, USB and LAN
On the back of the unit, there are four types of output connectors which are HDMI, SDI, USB and LAN. 4K video output can be done not only via HDMI, but also via USB and LAN. This makes it possible to build a fiexible system matching the specific objectives and environment.
Supported Formats with Each Output Connector
1/2.3-Type MOS Sensor
Equipped with a 1/2.3-type MOS sensor and DSP (Digital Signal Processor) for high sensitivity and high resolution.
High Performance Optical 20x Zoom Lens/Super Resolution 30x Zoom
In addition to a 20x optical zoom, the AW-UN70W/K and AW-UE70W/K can zoom up to 30x (22x when in 4K mode) while maintaining high resolution thanks to Super Resolution technology. It also features a 12x digital zoom* and a 1.4x, 2.0x, 4.0x, 6.0x, and 8.0x digital extender zoom which can be used for 4K focus assist. These capabilities enable the AW-UN70W/K and AW-UE70W/K to shoot in large conference halls and classrooms.
- * Picture quality is lower with the digital zoom.
Equipped with High Dynamic Range (HDR) Mode*
In addition to conventional Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) and Digital Noise Reduction (DNR), the AW-UN70W/K and AW-UE70W/K are equipped with High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode. When shooting and synthesizing two images with differing exposure times, the AW-UN70W/K and AW-UE70W/K can create video with high visibility that corrects for halation and black defects even under backlit conditions.
- * Cannot be used when in 4K mode.
Optical (FHD, 4K)/4-axis Hybrid Image Stabilizer (FHD) for Stable Shooting
Image shake is reduced with both optical and digital 4-axis automatic stabilization that detects mounting surface vibration caused by audio equipment and opening/closing doors.
Outputs Still Image During Preset Movements; Supports One-Camera Operations
The 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 swiveling movement is not displayed, making operations possible with one camera.
With Freeze During Preset function OFF and ON
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-UN70W/K and AW-UE70W/K can also be set to switch to the mode automatically depending on surrounding light levels.
- * Video output is monochrome.
Audio Input Function
The AW-UN70W/K and AW-UE70W/K also support audio input, embedding and encoding. Audio output to IP is also supported. The ALC (Audio Automatic Level Control) in the AW-UN70W/K and AW-UE70W/K can be switched ON/OFF and an equalizer function can be used. By reducing low-frequency sound from air conditioners, projectors, and other devices, it is possible to emphasize and increase the clarity of the spoken words.
Both SDI and HDMI are Supported, and There is Also an External Synchronization Signal* Input Connector
For SDI/HDMI output, 2160/29.97p (HDMI only), 2160/25p (HDMI only), 1080/59.94p, 29.97p, 59.94i, 29.97PsF, 1080/50p, 25p, 50i, 25PsF, 720/59.94p, and 50p image formats are supported. In addition, there is an external synchronization signal input connector, and BBS (Black Burst Sync) and tri-level synchronization are supported.
- * External synchronization synchronizes with SDI video signals. It does not synchronize with HDMI video signals or IP video signals.
Video/Audio Output with USB
USB Video Class 1.0 and USB Audio Class 1.0 are supported. This enables video and audio output via USB so the cameras can be used as high-image-quality Web cameras for Web conferencing, distance learning, and other applications utilizing communication software.
MicroSD Card Recording Function*
Camera video and audio can be recorded in MP4 format on microSD card (sold separately) inserted into the unit. In addition, using an IP network, it is possible to externally control recording start/stop and download the recorded files.
Supported Formats for micro SD (recording):
- * There may be instances where it is not possible to record in the same format as the output video.
Equipped with a JPEG Image Saving Function*
The equipped JPEG Image Saving Function enables up to 99 still images (JPEGs) to be captured from video and saved to the microSD card. These images can easily be remotely saved, played back and deleted from a PC web browser connected via a LAN cable.
- * A version software update may be required for use.
Flexible IP Control
Full HD Video Output Via IP Transmission*1
In addition to HDMI, SDI and USB output, production quality 4K/full HD video output via IP transmission is supported. For 4K video output via IP transmission, there can be one channel of IP video output of up to 30 frames/second. At full HD image quality, IP video output up to 60 frames/second is possible. One camera delivers up to four channels*1 of IP streaming video (H.264), and simultaneous transmission to as many as 14 devices is supported*2, so that flexible system setup is possible to meet various application needs.

NDI | HX Compatibility for Excellent Video Streaming Quality
The AW-UN70W/K is NDI | HX built-in model and AW-UE70W/K can be upgraded to NDI | HX with purchasing a license from the NewTek website. Highly efficient NDI | HX compatibility enables excellent broadcast streaming by encoding and transmitting high-quality video in real time. This technology eliminates the need for IP decoders, allowing input to be sent directly to the switcher.
