Sony BRC-X400 4K Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera with NDI
The Sony BRC-X400 4K Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera with NDI is a 4K pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera ideal for cost-efficient content creation. The compact yet powerful BRCX400 camera is extremely well-suited for broadcast applications from studio to reality TV shows as well as shooting in large venues including event halls and houses of worships (HoW). High picture quality achieved with newly developed Exmor RTM CMOS image sensor, 80x2 powerful zoom capability in Full HD and easy system configuration for cost-effective broadcast productions.
The BRC-X400 realizes high picture quality effortlessly, thanks to the highly sensitive Exmor R CMOS image sensor. The newly developed sensor achieves natural color reproduction and delivers 4K/30p with minimal noise. The built-in, high-resolution 4K lens accommodates wide-angle shots up to 70 degrees and is equipped with 30x zoom capability in 4K utilizing Sony’s Clear Image Zoom feature. Users can operate the 80x zoom capability in Full High Definition (FHD) with Tele Convert Mode. Horizontal resolution of 1700 TV lines in 4K and 1000 or higher TV lines in Full High Definition capture details of the image.
Allowing for seamless switching during live events and reality shows, the BRC-X400 comes equipped with broadcast-friendly features such as tally lamps and genlock support. A new feature, Scene File, which is planned to be available through a future upgrade in early 2020, will allow users to apply the same operating menu from one camera to others for fast set-up.
This latest addition to the BRC series can be integrated into existing broadcast system workflows easily thanks to its range of camera control protocols support. This includes 700 Protocol for Sony’s broadcast cameras, CGI as well as VISCA / VISCA over IP. In addition, the BRC-X400 is planned to be compatible with Sony’s first AI-based video analytic solution, REA-C1000. With the REA-C1000, a chroma key-less CG overlay feature can extract the presenter and place them on any background without the need for a dedicated backscreen or special training.
