1/3-inch CMOS sensor SD / HD robotic camera
The BRC-Z330 has been designed to meet growing demand for full HD images from robotic camera. It is equipped with a relatively low-power-consumption 1/3-type 2-megapixel CMOS image sensor. The camera's wide pan/tilt ranges and smooth pan/tilt/zoom capability make it perfect for deployment in locations such as auditoriums, educational facilities, conferences and concerts.
The BRC-Z330 is the smallest model in the Series line up. Its compact and light body makes installation and operation very smooth. Moreover, thanks to the adoption of a direct-drive pan/tilt mechanism, it has a quiet operation that minimizes interference with ongoing events and helps it blend in naturally with surrounding environments.
The BRC-Z330 employs a single 1/3-type CMOS image sensor. This camera incorporates a newly developed DSP to make effective use of the ClearVid CMOS Sensors, which have been developed using Sony advanced semiconductor technologies. One of the advantages of the CMOS sensor is that vertical smear is minimized. The combination of the new DSP and the ClearVid CMOS Sensors allows the camera to achieve both higher resolution and higher sensitivity compared to cameras equipped with conventional CMOS sensors. Furthermore, the camera's "color masking" function allows users to adjust specific colours in the image more precisely, while the "colour detail" function allows users to smooth over skin tones.
Because the BRC-Z330 has an "Image Flip" function, the unit can either be mounted on a ceiling using the supplied ceiling mount kit or placed on a flat surface to meet the user's installation and space requirements.
All camera settings, including the Pan/Tilt/Zoom functions and sixteen-preset patterns, can be controlled from the optional RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit. The ergonomic joystick design and feature-rich control panel provide superb operability in various remote-shooting applications.
The BRC-Z330 covers a wide shooting range with its highly accurate Pan/Tilt mechanism. It has a very wide pan range of 350 degrees and a tilt range of 120 degrees. Both pan and tilt speeds are variable within the range of 0.22 to 60 degrees per second. What's more, the BRC-Z330 has an extremely quiet motor that is capable of very precise movements. It is capable of capturing not only fast-moving objects, but also slow-moving objects without rocking vibration. For capturing small or distant objects, the BRC-Z330 incorporates a 18 x optical auto-focus zoom lens.
