Sony BRC-Z700 20x Optical Zoom (1080/59.94i) HD PTZ Camera

Quick Overview

1080/59.94i, 1/4 type 3CMOS, 20x Zoom, Min Illumination: 6 lx (50 IRE, F1.6, 24dB).

The BRCZ700 (BRC-Z700) HD PTZ, Broadcast camera employs three 1/4-type CMOS image sensors, boasting a resolution of 1,120,000 total pixels. This camera incorporates a newly developed DSP to make effective use of the ClearVid CMOS Sensors, which have been developed using Sony advanced semiconductor technologies. One of the advantages of the CMOS sensor is that vertical smear is minimized. The combination of the new DSP and the ClearVid CMOS Sensors allows the camera to achieve both higher resolution and higher sensitivity compared to cameras equipped with conventional CMOS sensors. Furthermore, the camera’s “color masking” function allows users to adjust specific colors in the image more precisely, while the “color detail” function allows users to smooth over skin tones.

The robotic color video camera system (BRCZ700, BRC-Z700) is distinctively designed for remote video shooting applications and is a high-end pan, tilt, and zoom camera. The camera’s high-accuracy and wide-range Pan/Tilt/Zoom capability allow the BRC-Z700P to precisely capture pictures you require employing High-end imaging equipment. The BRCZ700 is the camera of choice for a communications camera.
