SRG-XB25 (SRGXB25)

Compact 4K 60p BOX-style remote camera with 25x optical zoom

Overview

Stream crisp, detail-packed 4K 60p video with this high quality remote camera that features a powerful 25x optical zoom lens for frame-filling close-ups in larger venues.
The SRG-XB25 high-zoom BOX camera draws on decades of Sony’s professional imaging know-how to suit a wide range of content creation applications. It’s ideal for capturing and streaming impressive 4K pictures in environments including seminar rooms, lecture theatres, virtual production studios, government/parliament buildings and houses of worship.

The cost-effective SRG-XB25 is particularly appealing for multi-camera shooting set-ups, where high quality images are required without the need for a team of dedicated camera operators. The integrated lens with powerful 25x optical zoom captures frame-filling close-ups of speakers and presenters, even when the camera’s installed at the back or larger auditoriums and public venues.

The SRG-XB25 fits seamlessly into all-IP production environments, with a single Ethernet cable carrying power, streaming video and camera control signals.

Ideal for lecture capture applications, the SRG-XB25 partners seamlessly with the REA-C1000 Edge Analytics Appliance. For example, the camera’s powerful 25x zoom captures the speaker’s gestures and handwriting in large classrooms or teaching spaces, allowing REA-C1000 to deliver what the customer requires.
