BRC-H800/1 HD PTZ Camera

Remotely capture broadcast quality Full HD images with smooth, silent PTZ and excellent low-light sensitivity.

The BRC-H800 remote camera combines uncompromising broadcast picture quality and smooth, silent PTZ operation with the flexibility of 3G-SDI and HDMI connections.

Designed for unattended operation, this compact but powerful robotic camera is an ideal complement to other broadcast cameras for capturing images in hard-to-reach or unobtrusive positions. It's equally at home in TV newsrooms, remote studios and on-air suites, auditoriums, houses of worship, courtrooms, classrooms or sports stadiums. It's also particularly suited to efficient multi-camera set-ups, under the control of a single operator.

Key Features:

  • Enhanced Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) operation
  • High quality 12x optical zoom and 24x(HD) with Clear Image Zoom
  • RCP/MSU Connectivity
  • Versatile video outputs
  • Always up to date
  • Broadcast quality Full HD 60p images
  • Cinematic 24p pictures
  • Excellent low light sensitivity
  • Flexible installation
  • Remote operation
  • Genlock
  • Front and rear tally lamps

The 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS image sensor captures crisp, low-noise Full HD images at 60p, with excellent low-light sensitivity. The large image sensor also allows the creation of beautiful 'bokeh' effects with a shallow depth of field to suit any artistic intention. Speedy, near-silent PTZ operation with 12x optical zoom accommodates wide-angle scenes and tightly framed close-ups, with Clear Image Zoom 24x(HD) extending this range even further without visible loss of resolution. In Tele Convert Mode, 24x zoom can be further doubled to 48x without losing HD resolution.

Broadcast-friendly features include dual tally lamps for on-air operation, while operational flexibility is enhanced with options for ceiling, table top or tripod mounting. There’s also a broad range of video interfacing and remote control possibilities - plus support for PoE+ and genlock - for smooth integration into any broadcast, professional or corporate AV environment. The BRC-H800/1 and the BRC-H800/WPW are the US/Canada models which are bundled with the AC-UES1230MT AC power supply and cord. In all other regions the AC power supply and cord are sold separately. Available in black as BRC-H800 and in white as BRC-H800/W (colour availability may vary by country).

Enhanced Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) operation

Accurately re-frame shots or track moving subjects with smooth, speedy, near-silent remote control of pan, tilt and zoom functions. There's also low-speed zoom and a slow pan/tilt mode for precise, judder-free camera movements. PTZ Trace Memory allows a sequence of camera movements to be memorised and followed whenever required. PTZ Motion Sync smoothly blends separate pan, tilt and zoom movements for seamless, professional-looking transitions. Upto 100 preset positions for pan/tilt/zoom operations.

High quality 12x optical zoom and 24x(HD) with Clear Image Zoom

The high quality Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens with 12x optical zoom range covers wide angle shots as well as tight close-ups. Clear Image Zoom* expands this range to 24x (HD) without sacrificing detail. In addition, the Tele Convert Mode can double this range again, up to 48x zoom while maintaining a 1920x1080 resolution.

RCP/MSU Connectivity

In an studio environment, BRC-H800 can be controlled via Sony’s Remote Control Panel RCP-1500/1501/1530 and MSU-1000/1500. Connection can be made over IP networks.

Versatile video outputs

Enjoy greater installation flexibility in professional broadcast and AV environments with 3G-SDI (x2) and HDMI video outputs.

Always up to date

New camera functionality and performance improvements can be added via firmware updates over IP

Broadcast quality Full HD 60p images

The camera's large, back-illuminated 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS sensor delivers uncompromised broadcast quality colour pictures in detail-packed Full HD 60p, capable of capturing sports and other fast-moving action.

Cinematic 24p pictures

The camera can also operate in 24p mode, for video footage with a rich, filmic look.

Excellent low light sensitivity

The BRC-H800 can capture crisp, low noise colour video images in light levels as low as 1.7lx, making it an ideal choice for dimly lit live hall and theater

Flexible installation

Integration is simplified in a wide range of environments, with PoE+ (Power over Ethernet) to reduce cabling requirements and VISCA control over IP.

Remote operation

Pan/tilt/zoom and other camera settings can be controlled using the supplied IR remote commander, or with the optional RM-IP500 Remote Control Unit that can control multiple cameras.


Genlock simplifies integration with other systems in multi-camera broadcast environments.

Front and rear tally lamps

Ideal for on-air broadcast use, the BRC-H800 features dual tally lamps on the front and rear of the camera body. Brightness of the front tally lamp can be adjusted in two steps.
