Sony BRC-H900 (BRCH900)

1/2 Type 3CMOS Full-HD Colour Remote Head Camera

This robotic camera from Sony really is a cut above the rest with three ½ type Exmor™ CMOS sensors and effective 2.07Mega pixels. With powerful 14x optical zoom and an innovative image stabilization feature, the BRC-H900 meets the demands of capturing superb quality footage in full-HD resolution even in large venues such as auditoriums, large meeting rooms, studios, concert halls and sporting arenas. The ultra-sensitivity of F10 and remarkable illumination of 4 lux will be a huge advantage in low light situations.

Connectivity to full HD recorders

This remote head can be connected via HD-SDI outputs to the majority of broadcast HD recorders. Popular choices include Sony XDCAM units such as the PDW-1600 or the versatile solid state recorder produced by Cinedeck. To maintain a full HD broadcast spec choosing a BRC-H900 is much like using a Sony EX3 or similar camera as you front end acquisition tool and then marrying it up with a recorder of choice.

The Sony BRC-H900 is also very quiet in its operation and movement which gives it added value in, for example, a hidden camera show where noise must be kept to a minimum.
