Overview

High-definition, all-in-one, robotic colour video camera for remote shooting applications
The BRC-H700 is an all-in-one compact robotic colour video camera system, which achieves high accuracy and wide-range Pan/Tilt/Zoom performance without complicated cable connections and installation.
Superb picture quality
Three 1.07 Megapixel HD CCDs The BRC-H700 incorporates three 1/3-inch type HD CCD sensors with a total of 1,070,000 effective pixels each, resulting in outstanding picture quality with high resolution. It also delivers accurate colour reproduction, and is ideal in low-light shooting environments.
Flexible Installation - ceiling mount or flat surface
Because the BRC-H700 has an -inchImage Flip-inch function, the unit can either be mounted on a ceiling using the supplied ceiling mount kit or placed on a flat surface to meet your installation and space requirements.
Easy-to-use and ergonomically designed remote control unit
All camera settings, including the Pan/Tilt/Zoom functions and sixteen-preset patterns, can be controlled from the optional RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit. The ergonomic joystick design and feature-rich control panel provide superb operability in various remote-shooting applications.
High-performance Pan/Tilt/Zoom mechanism
The BRC-H700 covers a wide shooting range with its highly accurate Pan/Tilt mechanism. It has a very wide pan range of 340 degrees and a tilt range of 120 degrees. Both pan and tilt speeds are variable within the range of 0.25 to 60 degrees per second. This enables the BRC-H700 to capture not only fast-moving objects, but also slow-moving objects without rocking vibration. What's more, the BRC-H700 incorporates a 12x optical auto-focus zoom lens, allowing for a zoom capability of up to 48x when used in combination with its 4x digital zoom.

Features

RS-232C/RS-422 remote control (VISCA protocol)
The BRC-H700 can be controlled by external devices such as the optional RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit thanks to Sony's well-known VISCA protocol. All local controls such as Pan/Tilt/Zoom, camera settings, and sixteen presets can be easily accessed, and up to seven cameras can be daisy-chained and controlled by a single RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit.
Versatile video outputs
The BRC-H700 comes standard with a D-sub 15-pin RGB/YPbPr interface. The unit can also accept a range of versatile optional interface cards that allow for flexible analogue and digital system configurations. Choose from the following interface cards to configure a solution that meets your individual requirements:

HFBK-HD1*1 : HD-SDI, HD Analogue RGB/Component

HFBK-SD1*1 : Down Converted Analogue RGB, Analogue Component, Analogue Composite, SD-SDI

HFBK-XG1*1 : WXGA, XGA (Letter Box, Crop), VGA (Letter Box, Crop)

HFBK-TS1*1 : i.Link for use with HDV systems Thanks to these convenient option cards, the BRC-H700 truly functions as an all-in-one, compact robotic camera. *1: Can be installed in both the BRC-H700 and BRU-H700.
16 camera presets
Various camera settings such as Pan/Tilt/Zoom and focus can be configured for up to sixteen presets per camera.
Multi-function IR remote commander unit
Basic camera settings, such as the Pan/Tilt/Zoom functions and six-preset patterns, can be controlled from the supplied IR Remote Commander unit.
Optical Multiplex Unit (BRU-H700)
Uncompressed digital data including external sync, camera control and audio signals can be transmitted via the optional BRU-H700 HD Optical Multiplex Unit with the BRBK-H700 HD Optical Multiplex Card installed. With only a single cable connection between the camera and the HD Optical Multiplex Unit, the system is extremely easy to install. The maximum cable length between these units is 1,000 meters - allowing multiple cameras to be located virtually anywhere you want. What's more, the BRU-H700 HD Optical Multiplex Unit is equipped with two built-in card slots, each identical to the one found in the BRC-H700 camera, allowing for flexible analogue and digital system configurations.
