Conference video production system that can respond flexibly to various room layouts for lectures and seminars
- We want to change the operation system flexibly according to the scale of the event on each day, such as lectures in a large hall or seminars divided into small groups.
- We want even in-house employees to be able to achieve a system setup in a limited time and reliable operation.
- We want to reduce image delays of LED video walls and face-up IMAG screens and eliminate delay differences between each screen.
Proposal 1: Flexibly optimize the system with IP connection
If you want to freely switch between many inputs and outputs, a large router that could connect all video signals was required with a conventional video system. With KAIROS, due to IP connection, there is no limit to the number of inputs and outputs that can be connected to the system and resource sharing can also be achieved. Flexibly optimize the system according to the scale and purpose of the event of each day.
Proposal 2: Intuitive GUI and control panel that can be operated by in-house employees
The setting software KAIROS Creator can be easily operated by in-house employees with intuitive GUI similar to a typical graphic app. It is also possible to create a scene file that allows you to set a series of effects according to the scenario, and by loading a scene file onto the layout-free control panel KAIROS Control and assigning it to any key, reliable operation is possible without missing the timing.
Proposal 3: Minimize image delays of LED walls and face-up IMAG screens
The IT/IP platform KAIROS directly captures various images such as SDI, ST 2110 and NDI®, and complex compositions do not increase image delays by performing video composition processing on the GPU. It also incorporates the multi-canvas function for LED video wall productions that usually required separate equipment, achieving low delays as the total system by eliminating the delay caused by other equipment. There is also no difference in image delay between the LED wall and face-up IMAG screens.

Virtual Corporate Events
Remote presentations in virtual spaces brought to life using PTZ cameras with FreeD *1 support
FreeD*1 is a protocol for the transmission of camera tracking data and has been widely adopted for use in virtual studio systems. As PTZ cameras with FreeD*1 support, the AW-UE160W/K and AW-UE100W/K can be combined with virtual studio systems to enable the creation of simple system configurations capable of delivering high-quality presentations that feel as if they were shot in a real studio.
- Enable information dissemination through video while providing the sense of presence that conventional web conferencing systems lack
- Utilize virtual spaces to enhance the impact of messages distributed through video streaming while avoiding the complicated configurations and high costs that prevent the introduction of conventional systems
Leverage a variety of camera operations and virtual spaces to create presentations that captivate viewers
The AＷ-UE160W/K and AW-UE100W/K are PTZ cameras that are well-suited to working in combination with virtual studio systems and can be used to create presentations in virtual spaces with ease. These PTZ cameras also feature built-in pan-tilt heads and lenses, which enable a wide variety of camera operations using pan, tilt and zoom functions. This allows for the creation of truly engaging presentations with a sense of presence that cannot be replicated by conventional web conferencing systems, which are principally used for fixed-angle shooting and displaying documentation.
Construct simple, cost effective virtual studio systems built around PTZ cameras
The AW-UE160W/K and AW-UE100W/K are capable of sending information such as pan, tilt and lens positions directly to virtual studio systems. Separate sensors and encoders for information acquisition are not required, meaning that shooting in virtual studios can be carried out with compact systems that minimize the amount of equipment and preparation time needed. With lenses integrated into the camera bodies, the time and labor spent on calibration with a 3D rendering engine*2 can also be minimized.
*1: FreeD is a widely used protocol for transmitting camera tracking information in AR/VR systems. The AW-UE160W/K and the AW-UE100W/K transmit the pan, tilt, zoom and focus information that are required for compositing with AR/VR.
*2: 3D rendering engines are systems for generating 3D graphics in real time.
Corporate events with speakers from multiple locations costarring in the same virtual space, executed using PTZ cameras with SRT*1 support
The AW-UE160W/K and AW-UE100W/K are PTZ cameras that support SRT*1, a video transmission protocol that offers robust security and enables stable video transmission over public networks. Speakers shot in separate locations with the AW-UE160W/K and AW-UE100W/K can be composited into the same virtual space to create events with a sense of presence that feel as if recording took place in a single location. This combines the entertainment value of virtual studios with presentation that takes corporate events to the next level.
- Respond to the increase in remote work and overcome the barriers to gathering people in a single location due to travel costs and safety concerns by creating events featuring speakers in multiple locations while maintaining a unified feel
- Enable active information dissemination through video while addressing information security concerns
Create online events with a unified feel by leveraging SRT*1 transmission to composite video from multiple locations onto a single virtual space
SRT*1 is a protocol that enables stable video transmission even over public connections and other unstable networks. PTZ cameras with SRT*1 support, including the AW-UE160W/K and AW-UE100W/K, are able to transmit video from multiple locations in SRT*1 format directly over public networks without an encoder. This enables the creation of online events with a unified feel by compositing the video of participants from multiple locations onto a single virtual space.
Leverage the strong encryption of SRT*1 to ensure secure video transmission
SRT*1 is a video transmission protocol that provides robust security. Both the transmission signal and the video data itself are encrypted during transmission, enabling online video transmission while minimizing risks to information security.
*1: Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) is a video transmission protocol that provides robust security and is suitable for use with unstable network environments.
*1: Systems can also be constructed with the 4K Integrated Camera AW-UE160W/K.
*2: Used in the scene 1.
*3: Video from PTZ cameras and graphics from the 3D rendering engine are composited in the Live Switcher AV-UHS500.
*4: 3D rendering engines are systems for generating 3D graphics in real time.
Quick capture of speakers using extensive preset camera positions
Efficient camera control is pos sible by defining 4K/HD Integrated Camera positions in advance. Combining this with PTZ Control Center enables quick camera work with only few shooting staff.
Web Conferencing & Webinars
USB functionality for web conferencing and web seminar with high quality video
