BRC-X1000/AC Camera

4K Pan Tilt Zoom camera with 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS sensor (colour availability may vary by country)

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.

Available in black as BRC-X1000 and in white as BRC-X1000/W (colour availability may vary by country).

Enhanced Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) operation

Accurately re-frame shots or track moving subjects with smooth speedy near-silent remote control of pan tilt and zoom functions. There's also low-speed zoom and a slow pan/tilt mode for precise judder-free camera movements. PTZ Trace Memory allows a sequence of camera movements to be memorised and followed whenever required. PTZ Motion Sync smoothly blends separate pan tilt and zoom movements for seamless professional-looking transitions. Up to 100 pre set positions for pan/tilt/zoom operations.

Uncompromising 4K images

The camera's large back-illuminated 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS sensor delivers uncompromised broadcast quality colour pictures in detail-packed 4K 30p with four times the resolution of Full HD. Footage can also be captured in Full HD 60p - ideal for fast-moving sports action.
