PARK RIDGE, N.J., Oct. 25, 2007 – Sony is expanding its line of high-definition, pan-tilt-zoom cameras with the BRC-Z700 model. This new camera is designed for an array of remote acquisition applications, including point-of-view for live broadcasting, distance learning, image magnification, event videography and others.
The camera can display images onto a large screen in houses of worship, auditoriums, teaching hospitals, corporate boardrooms, and at sporting events, trade shows, and concerts. It can also be used for distance-learning applications in which clear, high-definition images need to be projected onto electronic whiteboards during a presentation, for example.
“This camera satisfies a professional shooter‘s need to combine high resolution images with extreme usability, flexibility and high-performance,” said Andy Berger, group marketing manager for Sony Electronics. “This all-in-one compact camera achieves high accuracy and wide-range PTZ functionality without the need for complicated cable connections and installation.”
The camera features three Ľ-inch ClearVid CMOS sensors, a 20x optical zoom with image stabilization and a silent and smooth pan/tilt mechanism. It has a wide pan range of -170 to +170 degrees, and a tilt range of -30 to +90 degrees.
This new camera can be controlled by external devices including the optional RM-BR300 remote control via Sony‘s VISCA™ protocol (RS-232C / RS-422). Local controls such as PTZ settings and any of 16 presets can be easily accessed.
. Sony‘s Anycast Station™ live content producer (AWS-G500) can also control the camera‘s pan and tilt adjustments, in addition to a range of other functions.
When using optional optical multiplex cards, users can control the camera and transmit digital image data and audio signals for longer distances.
The BRC-Z700 camera features both HD and SD outputs as standard, and can accept a variety of optional interface cards, including HD-SDI, SD/SD-SDI
The camera comes standard with analog component and composite and Y/C outputs.
The BRC-Z700 is planned to be available in winter 2008, at a suggested list price of less than $8,000.
