A Camera that Automatically and Naturally Shoots Video for you

With the advanced PTZ Auto Framing feature, the camera automatically track the target in a comfortable viewing with smooth Pan-Tilt-Zoom movement regardless of posture, movement and what one is wearing.

Since the camera does most of the work automatically, the operator can spend its time efficiently.

PTZ Auto Framing with built-in AI analytics

This camera harnesses powerful AI-powered video analytics that can automatically detect and track the position of a presenter within the camera frame. As the presenter moves, the camera’s pan/tilt/zoom mechanism ensures that the presenter is always framed naturally, without the need for a human camera operator to manually follow their movements.

Man with skeleton outline marked out

Automatically and reliably shoots video for you

With Sony’s newly developed AI analytics algorithm, it detects the subject’s skeleton and head position and matches the subject’s detail features even when there are several people in the frame. It achieves accurate framing and consistent tracking.

Choice from three shooting modes

The camera has a choice of three shooting modes; Full body, Waist, and Close up. In each mode, you can adjust picture composition (size, up & down, and left & right) and the SRG-A40 and SRG-A12 can automatically track and keep the subject in the selected optimal position.
