Sony BRC-H900

Full HD robotic camera ideal for broadcast applications

The BRC-H900P delivers exceptionally high quality images and flexibility, making it ideal as a low-cost complement to broadcast studio cameras for capturing images in hard-to-reach or unobtrusive positions. The camera features three high quality 1/2-inch type Exmor CMOS sensors and a 14x optical zoom lens. Ceiling mountability, tally lamps and HD/SD-SDI connectivity increase the camera’s flexibility.

High quality image capture

The BRC-H900P delivers exceptional picture quality thanks to three 1/2-inch type Exmor CMOS sensors. In addition, the feature rich colour adjustment functions allow fine-tuning to meet demanding needs.

High quality 14x optical zoom

The camera features a high quality 14x optical zoom lens, allowing the camera to integrate easily with broadcast quality studio cameras.

Low light image capture

High sensitivity(F10) and excellent minimum illumination (4lx) performance enables the BRC-H900P to capture high quality pictures in low light conditions.

High performance Pan/Tilt/Zoom mechanism

The BRC-H90P0 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-H900P to capture not only fastmoving objects, but also slow-moving objects without rocking vibration.

Flexible installation – ceiling mount or flat surface

Because the BRC-H900P 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 suit almost any installation requirement.

Remote control operation with VISCA protocol

The BRC-H900P can be controlled by external devices such as the optional RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit thanks to Sony’s well established 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.

Optional IP control

The BRC-H900P can be configured as part of a low cost communication system over Ethernet. Up to 100 cameras can be controlled in one system.

Versatile video outputs

The BRC-H900P has a range of video outputs including HD/SD-SDI interface for direct connection with various video equipment.

Tally lamps

Tally lamps on the front and rear of the BRC-H900P offer flexible installation and operation in various shooting environments.

Same optional accessories as the BRC-Z330

The BRC-H900P uses the same optional accessories as the BRC-Z330, expanding the number of applications for the camera at a low cost.
