The Sony BRC-H700 high definition video camera is designed for a variety of remote acquisition applications, especially in television production for recording programs and for use as weather or even traffic camera. The PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) camera can display images onto a large screen in auditoriums, teaching hospitals, sporting events, trade shows, and even concerts. This unit is also ideal for distance learning applications in which clear high definition images need to be projected onto electronic whiteboards during a presentation or other function.
The Sony BRC-H700 also features three 1/3 inch HD CCDs with 1.07 megapixels, delivers accurate color reproduction, and is ideal for taking pictures or videos in low light environments. The BRC-H700 has a wide pan range of 340 degrees and a tilt range of 120 degrees. Both the pan and tilt speeds are variable within the range of 25 to 60 degrees a second, so the camera can capture both fast and slow-moving objects with minimal rocking vibration. The camera also includes a 12X optical autofocus zooming lens, which allows for a zoom capability of up to 48X when used in combination with the 4X digital zoom.
You can also control the BRC-H700 by external devices which include the optional RM-BR300 remote control via Sony's VISCA protocol. Local controls such as PTZ settings and any of the 16 presets can easily be accessed. The BRC-H700 has a card slot that accepts a variety of optional interface cards, including the HD-SDI, SD/SD, I Link, and even connections for use with computers.
Other features include an image flip function for installation flexibility on ceilings or other flat surfaces and up to 16 presets for operational ease of use.
