Remotely capture broadcast quality 4K images with smooth, silent PTZ and excellent low-light sensitivity
The BRC-X1000 is Sony's first 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, faith centers, courtrooms, or sports stadiums. It's also particularly suited to efficient multi-camera setups, under the control of a single operator.
The 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS image sensor captures detail-packed 4K footage at 30 p 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 12 × optical zoom accommodates wide-angle scenes and tightly framed close-ups, with Clear Image Zoom 18 × (4K), 24 × (HD) extending this range even further without visible loss of resolution. In HD resolution, 24 × zoom can be doubled to 48 × with Tele Convert Mode. 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.
The BRC-X1000/1 and the BRC-X1000/WPW are the US/Canada models which are bundled with the AC-UES1230MT AC power supply and cord. In all other regions the AC power supply and cord are sold separately.
Available in black as BRC-X1000 and in white as BRC-X1000/W (color availability may vary by country).
