All-in-one High Definition robotic camera
The BRC-H700 is a high-definition, all-in-one, robotic color video camera for remote shooting applications.
SUPERB PICTURE QUALITY
Three 1.07 Megapixel HD CCDs The BRC-H700 incorporates three 1/3-inch type HD CCD sensors with a total of 1,070,000 effective pixels each, resulting in outstanding picture quality with high resolution. It also delivers accurate colour reproduction, and is ideal in low-light shooting environments.
FLEXIBLE INSTALLATION – CEILING MOUNT OR FLAT SURFACE
Because the BRC-H700 has an “Image Flip” function, the unit can either be mounted on a ceiling using the supplied ceiling mount kit or placed on a flat surface to meet your installation and space requirements.
EASY-TO-USE AND ERGONOMICALLY DESIGNED REMOTE CONTROL UNIT
All camera settings, including the Pan/Tilt/Zoom functions and sixteen-preset patterns, can be controlled from the optional RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit. The ergonomic joystick design and feature-rich control panel provide superb operability in various remote-shooting applications.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE PAN / TILT / ZOOM MECHANISM
The BRC-H700 covers a wide shooting range with its highly accurate Pan/Tilt mechanism. It has a very wide pan range of 340 degrees and a tilt range of 120 degrees. Both pan and tilt speeds are variable within the range of 0.25 to 60 degrees per second. This enables the BRC-H700 to capture not only fast-moving objects, but also slow-moving objects without rocking vibration. What’s more, the BRC-H700 incorporates a 12x optical auto-focus zoom lens, allowing for a zoom capability of up to 48x when used in combination with its 4x digital zoom.
RS-232C/RS-422 REMOTE CONTROL (VISCA PROTOCOL)
The BRC-H700 can be controlled by external devices such as the optional RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit thanks to Sony’s well-known VISCA protocol. All local controls such as Pan/Tilt/Zoom, camera settings, and sixteen presets can be easily accessed, and up to seven cameras can be daisy-chained and controlled by a single RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit. External Sync. InputYes
Various camera settings such as Pan/Tilt/Zoom and focus can be configured for up to sixteen presets per camera
