The flagship BRC-H900 Pan/Tilt/Zoom color video camera incorporates a 1/2-type Exmor 3 CMOS sensor that delivers exceptionally high picture quality to meet demanding live production requirements. The BRC-H900 was designed with flexibility in mind.
Control Options: VISCA RS-232C/RS-422 or IP control (10Base-T/100Base-TX /Auto).
With the use of Sony's new RM-IP10 IP Remote Controller, the BRC-H900 can be controlled through an IP network for flexible configuration and can accomodate installations of up to 112 BRC cameras and up to five RM-IP10 controllers. (BRBK-IP10 board also required.)
Mounting and Installation: In addition to standard desktop installation, the BRC-H900 can be ceiling mounted and used with a tripod for mobile, live events. Its renowned silent and smooth pan/tilt/zoom mechanism enables use in noise-conscious environments.
Advanced Color Adjustment: With a variety of picture adjustment features including color, gamma, black and knee settings, the BRC-H900 camera allows for fine tuning to meet professional demands. With a minimum illumination of 4lx, the BRC-H900 also achieves outstanding performance in difficult lighting environments.
Tally Lamp: Not one but two tally lamps are featured on the BRC-H900 - one on the front and one on the rear - offering wider visibility.

The BRC-H900 delivers greatest sensitivity (F10) and horizontal resolution (more than 1,000 TV lines in HD-SDI output) to meet the needs of high quality conscious applications.
These features will enable more users to enjoy the benefits of remote control cameras, particularly in education, wedding, and corporate applications. These advanced remote capabilities allow for a reduction in manned operation.
Superb Picture Quality
Thanks to Sony’s reputable image sensor technology, the BRC-H900 remote camera delivers exceptionally high picture quality to meet demanding live production requirements.
The F10 high sensibility and 50dB S/N Ratio is an advantage in low light situations. This innovative technology helps users adjust to shooting environments with extreme variable lighting, such as outdoor shoots and concerts where lighting situations may not be consistent.
In addition to a typical desktop installation, all of the BRC Series cameras can be mounted to the ceiling. Also with the use of a tripod and tripod screw, these cameras are also suitable for mobile applications, such as live events.
Advanced Color Adjustment
The BRC-H900 is equipped with a variety of picture adjustment features, including color, gamma, black, and knee settings. These feature-rich color adjustment functions allow fine tuning to meet professional demands.
14x Optical Zoom
By incorporating a 14x optical zoom lens, the BRC-H900 enables users to zoom in on small and distant objects with a high degree of accuracy.
1080i, 720p, and SD Output
The BRC-H900 simultaneously delivers stunning HD images (1080i or 720p) and SD analog images. This dual-output capability allows the camera to be integrated into both an HD and SD system, which is good for users who want to upgrade to complete HD.
