The High-Definition, All-in-One, Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) EVI-HD1 Color Video Camera Brings Scenes to Life

Contact us


Sony, a leader in developing PTZ cameras and a long standing leader in HD technology, is combining its strengths with the introduction of its first high-definition PTZ camera. Joining the popular EVI family, this unique camera allows you to take your first step towards HD migration with the flexibility to output analog or digital video signals – from standard definition (SD) to full high definition (HD). Conference rooms everywhere are making the transition to HD, and the Sony EVI-HD1 makes this change effortless.

The EVI-HD1 HD Color Video Camera employs a 1/3-type HD CMOS image sensor boasting two million effective pixels and can be used in combination with any number of codecs and other systems to produce high-quality, high-resolution images. The EVI-HD1 inherits many outstanding features from the popular EVI-D100 PTZ camera and couples these with superb HD picture quality.

With its wide field of view, built-in 10x optical zoom lens, 16:9 aspect ratio image and high-speed, quiet pan/tilt operation, the EVI-HD1 can cover subjects across wide areas, with minimal disturbance.

Combining convenient features such as auto focus/auto exposure, 6-position presets, and external/remote control, the EVI-HD1 camera is ideal for applications such as videoconferencing, distance learning, and corporate training.


Superb Picture Quality – 2-Megapixel HD CMOS Sensor
The EVI-HD1 incorporates a 1/3-type HD CMOS sensor (a total of two million effective pixels) providing outstanding picture quality and high resolution images.
Wide-Range, Quiet, and Quick Pan/Tilt Mechanism
By adopting a newly developed direct drive motor mechanism, the EVI-HD1 camera is extremely quiet, moves smoothly and quickly to designated positions and can cover a wide shooting range.

Max. pan speed: 300 degrees/s (range ± 100 degrees)

Max. tilt speed: 125 degrees/s (range ± 25 degrees)
Multi-Format Video Outputs from NTSC/PAL to Full HD
The EVI-HD1 provides full high-definition video in 1080i format. And for applications that require different formats, the EVI-HD1 offers a full range signals from SD to HD.
High-Quality Image Transmission via HD-SDI
The EVI-HD1 comes equipped with an HD-SDI interface terminal (SMPTE 292M compliant) that allows for long-distance transmission of high-quality HD images without degrading the picture quality.
RS-232C Remote Control (VISCA protocol)
All camera settings and pan/tilt/zoom control functions can be performed remotely at high communication speeds via the RS-232C interface (VISCATM protocol).
40x Zoom Ratio (10x Optical + 4x Digital)
The fast and stable auto-focus zoom lens on the EVI-HD1 has an impressive 40x zoom ratio.
Wide-Viewing Angle (70 degrees)
The EVI-HD1 incorporates a newly developed wide-angle lens for wide fieldof-view image capture, a plus for small to medium-sized conference rooms.
Six-Position Presets
The EVI-HD1 can store up to six preset values for pan/tilt/zoom, focus position, exposure mode, and white balance mode and can even retain these settings when the camera is shut off.
Multi-Function IR Remote Commander Unit
The easy-to-use supplied Remote CommanderTM unit for the EVI-HD1 is useful for basic settings and pan/tilt/zoom camera control.
