The BRC-X1000 is the first Sony 4K remote camera, combining uncompromising broadcast picture quality and smooth, silent PTZ operation with the flexibility of 3G-SDI and HDMI connections. Designed for remote operation, this compact but powerful robotic camera is an ideal complement to other broadcast cameras for capturing images in hard-to-reach or unobtrusive positions. It's equally at home in TV newsrooms, remote studios, and on-air suites, auditoriums, houses of worship, courtrooms, or sports stadiums. It's also particularly suited to efficient multi-camera set-ups, under the control of a single operator. The 1-inch type Exmor® R CMOS image sensor captures detail-packed 4K footage at 30p with four times the pixel count of Full HD, and excellent low-light sensitivity. The large image sensor also allows the creation of beautiful 'bokeh' effects with a shallow depth of field to suit any artistic intention. Speedy, near-silent PTZ operation with 12x optical zoom accommodates wide-angle scenes and tightly framed close-ups, with Clear Image Zoom 18x (4K), 24x (HD) extending this range even further without visible loss of resolution. Broadcast-friendly features include dual tally lamps for on-air operation, while operational flexibility is enhanced with options for ceiling, table-top, or tripod mounting. There's also a broad range of video interfacing and remote control possibilities—plus support for PoE+ and genlock—for smooth integration into any broadcast, professional, or corporate AV environment.
