The BRC-300 (NTSC model), is Sony's first robotic camera to offer the quality ofSD 1/4.7 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 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™ DV interface, 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 (VISCA™ 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).
