Sony has announced a new remote camera: the flagship BRC-H900 uses three half-inch Exmor CMOS sensors and will ship in May.
It includes: a 14x (optical) zoom lens; image stabilization; sensitivity of F10, signal-to-noise ratio of 50dB, and minimum low light illumination a reasonable 4 lux; adjustable Colour Matrix/Detail, Gamma Level/Black Gamma, and Knee Point/Slope/SAT Level; and HD/SD-SDI outputs.
Installation is claimed to be “a breeze” and “the smooth, quiet camera operates on its own with little fuss.” There are tally lights in both the front and rear of the camera, to provide status indication from more angles.
Sony will also release an IP control function to enable control of several BRC-H900s with remote controllers later in the year.
