The Sony BRC-X1000 is Sony’s 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, tabletop or tripod mounting.
