This compact model is designed for high quality image shooting in accordance with television broadcast standards. Ideal for TV shows and similar studio programs, as well as concerts, speeches, lectures, conferences and other events in large halls.
The camera is equipped with an IP interface and also provides support for NDI ® / HX licensing – this is the first time a Sony PTZ camera line has emerged. It also supports RTSP and RTMP protocols. The camera can be mounted in hard-to-reach areas (on the wall, under the ceiling) and can be paired with a standard IP cable used in the power supply to control the camera and transmit video signals.
Using the BRC-X400 is very easy to get high quality videos. This is largely due to new developments: the CMOS-matrix Exmor R ™ with high sensitivity.
When shooting in 4K / 30p, this matrix creates an image with minimal noise and natural color production. The camera’s built-in zoom lens is characterized by a very high capacity: 1,700 horizontal TV lines in the center of the frame, while the full HD is at least 1,000. Combined with the unique Sony Clear Image Zoom, the objective is 30x zoom in 4K, and the full HD zoom up to 80x in telephoto mode.
The functionality of the BRC-X400 meets the requirements of professional multichannel broadcasting: the possibility of external synchronization, seamless switching between cameras, and tally indicators. One of the new features is called Scene File. This facilitates the creation of multi-camera systems: it is enough to set the settings in one camera’s menu to apply all the complex settings to other cameras.
The camera is designed for future innovations that enhance functionality to meet long-range shooting standards while easily integrating with existing broadcast systems. Broadcast cameras provide excellent compatibility through the support of multiple related protocols, including Sony, CGI and VISCA / VISCA 700. In addition, the BRC-X400 is compatible with Sony’s most advanced hardware, including an artificial intelligence-based REA-C1000 video analysis module. For example, you can shoot a speaker in a normal room (without green chrome) and the background behind the speaker is automatically replaced by any image in the output of the video analysis module.
