Short Description: 1” Exmor R CMOS 4K Resolution camera
4K Pan Tilt Zoom camera with 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS sensor
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, 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 1.0-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. In HD resolution, 24x zoom can be doubled to 48x 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.
Enhanced Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) operation
High quality 12x optical zoom and 18x(4K) or 24x(HD) with Clear Image Zoom
The high quality Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 12x optical zoom range covers wide angle shots as well as tight close-ups. Clear Image Zoom* expands this range to 18x (4K) or 24x (HD) without sacrificing detail. In addition, the Tele Convert Mode can double this range again, up to 48x zoom while maintaining a 1920×1080 resolution.
*Clear Image Zoom is a Sony original intelligent interpolation, which analyzes the input image and increases the resolution of the image.
In an studio environment, BRC-X1000 can be controlled via Sony’s Remote Control Panel RCP-1500/1501/1530 and MSU-1000/1500. Connection can be made over IP networks.
*The compatibility is described in Remote Camera System Guide.
Versatile video outputs
Always up to date
Uncompromising 4K images
Cinematic 24p pictures
Excellent low light sensitivity
Front and rear tally lamps
Simplified construction of VR/AR systems*
Real-time camera tracking data (pan/tilt/zoom/focus/iris) can be output from the camera over IP network in free-d* protocol. It can construct VR/AR system without additional tracking system, easy and cost effective solution.
* VR: Virtual Reality, AR: Augmented Reality
* free-d is an industry-standard protocol for transmitting camera tracking data.
