Sony BRC-300 1/4-Inch 3-CCD Megapixel Widescreen Communications Camera with Pan/Tilt/Zoom/Focus and Exposure Remote Controls and 16:9 / 4:3 Aspect Options

Model Details

Sony's new Broadband Remote Camera, the BRC-300, is an entire category unto itself. It's Sony's first robotic camera to offer the quality of three individual mega pixel CCDs for brilliant resolution. Specifically designed for remote video-shooting applications, the BRC-300 incorporates three 1/4.7-type Advanced HAD CCDs to provide high-quality, high-resolution images in both 4:3 and 16:9 modes. With its E: Flip function for desktop or ceiling mount flexibility, the BRC-300 is ideal for use in a wide range of remote video shooting applications such as houses of worship, distance learning, corporate training, and cable TV broadcasting. In addition, its all-in-one design makes it an incredibly affordable alternative to separately configured cameras, lenses and P/T/Z mounts. And with a high-accuracy and wide-range pan/tilt/zoom capability, users can precisely capture the right points of the viewable area surrounding the BRC-300 to meet their needs. They can also easily operate the camera with Sony's optional RM-BR300 remote control unit, which is equipped with an ergonomic joystick, and feature-rich control panel. The BRC-300 comes equipped with a card slot that accepts optional interface cards, enabling the BRC-300 to be integrated into every kind of system from S-Video to RGB, iLINK DVCAM interface (optional card planned to be available soon), SDI or even fiber. In addition, two remote control interfaces (VISCA protocol) are available to provide additional expendability and flexibility for user's remote shooting needs. \


  • 16:9 Precision Technology and Wide Angle of View in 16:9 Mode A sufficient amount of pixels are used to reproduce high resolution images in the 16:9 aspect ratio. The BRC-300's Mega Pixel CCD enables an even wider angle of view in the 16:9 mode.
  • RS-232C or RS-422 Serial Control (VISCAâ„¢ Command) The BRC-300 camera settings and pan/tilt/zoom functions can be controlled remotely via a PC. With the RS-232C connection, maximum cable length can be extended to 15m (50 feet), while the RS-422 connection extends this further to 1200m (4000 feet).
  • Multi-Interface Card Slot The BRC-300 is equipped with a card slot that can accept optional interface cards. The BRC-300 can be integrated into every kind of system from S-Video to RGB, iLINKâ„¢ DVCAM interface (optional card planned to be available soon), SDI or even fiber.
  • Various Optional Equipment Optical Multiplex Unit (BRU-300) - this unit converts non-compressed digital raw data from a camera (with the optical multiplex card) into any video output and has two interface card slots.
