What is the BRC Series?
Applications
Corporate/Boardroom
City Council
BRC Series cameras are excellent for various
business communication applications, such as
videoconferencing, corporate training, and
transmission of managers’ regular speeches. Each
of the cameras in this series offers particular
features and advantages, providing a variety of
cameras for any application. The cameras are
easy to operate and can be quickly reset after
each use simply by touching a button on the
supplied controller – which recalls pre-specified
positions for capturing speech and switching
scenes.
Remotely controlled by the RM-BR300, BRC Series
cameras quickly capture all of the actions at
council meetings or trials. Each camera provides
simple, streamlined operation by offering multiple
presets which pre-define P/T/Z positions.
Sports Events
Auditorium/Concert Hall
With its pan/tilt/zoom (P/T/Z) capability, a single
camera can capture a wide shooting range
during an entire live performance, including
audience shots. Therefore, with the BRC Series,
fewer cameras and camera operators are
required, resulting in huge cost savings. These
cameras make it easy to get close-ups of
performers from locations that are typically difficult
for a camera operator to reach. Additionally, each
camera’s compact size and quiet movement
doesn’t distract the audience from the
performance.
With high-speed and extremely smooth pan/tilt
movement, BRC Series cameras can follow the
quick, spontaneous flow of sports action. With
cameras installed in high positions, operators can
obtain extensive views of each event, and capture
shots at unique angles, typically very difficult to
achieve with conventional shooting. Also, optical
fiber connection (max. 2,000 m) achieves longdistance data transfer and enables single-operator
broadcasting.

broadcast industry. The BRC-H900, BRC-H700,
BRC-Z700, and BRC-Z330 can output HD-SDI
signals*1 – a necessity for highly demanding
broadcasters who seek uncompromising picture
quality. With flexible installation, these cameras
can be easily integrated into a working studio with
tripods or ceiling brackets. For the wide angles
required in studio shooting, wide conversion lenses
are available*2. And there are numerous other
benefits, including quiet and smooth P/T/Z
movement, a tally indicator, cost-efficiency, and
more.
By using large screens in combination with highly
sensitive BRC Series cameras, clear video images
can be delivered with accurate color
reproduction. Attendees can become more
involved in the service and follow ongoing events
better than ever before. With a variety of
peripheral components, a range of user-friendly
systems can be designed to suit the size and
budget of every organization.
*1The BRC-H700, BRC-Z700, and BRC-Z330 require optional
video cards.
*2Wide conversion lenses are available for the BRC-Z700
and BRC-300.

*Connect the tally connector (outputs the camera number that is on-air) of the video switcher to the TALLY/CONTACT connector of RM-IP10. If there are multiple RM-IP10s, connect the same signal to all the TALLY/CONTACT connectors. In this case, set the
TALLY/CONTACT switch (DIP 1 switch 4 and 5) to the ON AIR TALLY mode for all RM-IP10s. When a camera is on-air, the CAMERA
button on RM-IP10 lights in red. (This function will be supported by version 2.0 or later).
For details of connection and settings, refer to the operating instructions of the IP remote controller.
Note • You cannot use the RS-232C and RS-422 connections when using the IP connection. When BRBK-IP10/IP7Z is attached
to the camera, the RS-232C/RS-422 connector does not work.
• When outputting an HD-SDI signal from BRBK-IP7Z, the signal delays about 4H in comparison with a Y/Pb/Pr or RGB
signal that is output from the camera.

14.1 Color Adjustment
(BRC-H900, BRC-Z700, BRC-Z330)
The BRC-H900, BRC-Z700 and BRC-Z330 can enhance or
reduce a specific color region without changing the white
balance. Both of these cameras adjust the saturation of six
colors independently, and the BRC-H700 is able to modulate
six colors simultaneously.
14.2 Color Detail
(BRC-H900, BRC-Z700, BRC-Z330)
The BRC-H900, BRC-Z700 and BRC-Z330 can adjust the image
enhancer of a specific color, which is an enhancement over
the conventional skin tone detail function. This allows you to
adjust not only skin tone color but also all other colors.
14.3 Color AE
(BRC-H900, BRC-Z330)
The BRC-H900, BRC-Z330 is equipped with a Color AE function.
This camera detects a particular color and adjusts exposure
specifically for this color. This feature is useful when shooting
objects located in front of a single-colored background.
14.4 KNEE/GAMMA Adjustment
(BRC-H900)
The BRC-H900 can adjustment “KNEE” and “GAMMA” on the
camera menu.

14.6 Audio Configuration
The BRC-H700 and BRC-Z700 have three and two audio configurations, respectively. In the first configuration
with the HFBK-TS1 (illustrated below), you can mix audio signals and video signals and output them as HDV.
In the second configuration, you can input the audio signal to the BRBK-H700 or the BRBK-MF1 and transmit
it via an optical fiber cable. The output signal from the BRU-H700 is an analog audio signal and a selected
video signal generated from a compatible optional video card. The third configuration adds even more
convenience, allowing you to input the output signal to the HFBK-TS1. As a result, you can output the final
data as HDV.

15 Installing the Camera in a High Position
Using the supplied ceiling brackets, wire rope and
screws, and the attachment materials (not supplied),
you can attach the camera to a ceiling or on a
shelf, etc. in a high position. When you install the
camera, always install it on a level ceiling or shelf,
etc. If you have to install it on an incline, make sure
that the inclination is within ± 15 degrees, so that
the pan/tilt performance is guaranteed.
Installation on a ceiling (example)
1 Set IMG-FLIP to ON in the SYSTEM menu.
2 Remove the four screws on the bottom of the
camera to remove the four feet.
Caution • When you attach the camera to a ceiling or shelf,
etc. in a high position, entrust the installation to
an experienced contractor or installer.
• Attach the camera to the ceiling or shelf, etc.
firmly, after making sure the ceiling, shelf, etc. and
the attachment materials (not including the
supplied accessories) are strong enough to bear
a weight of 60 kg (132 lb 4 oz). If the ceiling or
shelf, etc. is not strong enough, the camera may
fall and cause serious injury.
• Be sure to attach the supplied wire rope to
prevent the camera from falling.
• Check periodically, at least once a year, to
ensure that the connection has not loosened. If
conditions warrant, make this periodic check
more frequently.
Before installation
After deciding the shooting direction, make the
required holes for the ceiling bracket (B) and
connecting cables on the ceiling or shelf, etc. For
the dimensions of the ceiling bracket (B), see
