BRC-X400 IP 4K PTZ Camera with NDI | HX Capability

Capture every point of view in 4K with excellent picture quality and efficient IP production workflow

The versatile BRC-X400 PTZ camera is ideal for use in a wide range of environments - from broadcast studios and remote on-air suites to sports stadiums, arenas, houses of worship and lecture halls. The camera's 1/2.5-type Exmor R CMOS sensor captures broadcast quality 4K images with excellent sensitivity, very low noise and rich, natural colour reproduction. It's complemented by the integrated high-resolution lens that offers a powerful zoom capability of up to 80x in Full HD(30x in 4K), with an expansive approx. 70° wide angle coverage to capture every point of view.

Key Features:

  • Excellent 4K images, even in low light
  • Wide Viewing angle
  • Multiple control protocols
  • Remote viewing
  • Ideal for live production
  • Up to 80x zoom
  • Support for NDI | HX
  • Simple Installation, lower costs
  • Fast, fuss-free set-up

Efficient IP-based live production is augmented with support for NDI | HX (via optional license), allowing flexible configuration with other networked NDI-enabled devices. Images also can be reviewing remotely via a web browser, with support for RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) ensuring smooth, stable streaming of video plus audio (from an optional microphone, available separately) over an IP network.

Installation and set-up is easy, with a new Picture Setting File allowing the same settings to be applied to multiple cameras. Convenient integration in multi-camera live events is also simplified with genlock support and an 'on-air' tally lamp.

Excellent 4K images, even in low light

The sensitive 1/2.5-type Exmor R sensor captures high-quality 4K images with very low noise, even in dimly-lit environments.

Wide viewing angle

Cover the whole scene in sports arenas and lecture theatres with a horizontal viewing angle of approx. 70°.

Multiple control protocols

PTZ and other camera functions can be controlled remotely via S700PTP, CGI and VISCA protocols.

Remote viewing

View pictures remotely over the Internet from a web browser, with support for RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol).

Ideal for live production

Genlock allows seamless multi-camera switching in live events. The camera's inbuilt tally lamp is ideal for live productions and reality shows.

Up to 80x zoom

Powerful zoom up to 80x (in FHD) allows frame-filling close-ups with fine details seen clearly. Responsive autofocus ensures that images stay clear and sharp, even at high zoom settings.

Support for NDI | HX

NDI | HX compatibility (via optional license) supports efficient IP-based live production, allowing flexible configuration with other networked NDI-enabled devices.

Simpler installation, lower costs

A single IP cable carries camera power, video image output and control signals to simplify installation and reduce cabling costs.

Fast, fuss-free set-up

The new Picture Setting File function can apply the same camera settings among multiple cameras for fast set-up.
