The BRC-H700 is an all-in-one compact robotic color video camera system, which achieves high accuracy and wide-range Pan/Tilt/Zoom performance without complicated cable connections and installation. With the optional Sony RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit, featuring an ergonomically designed joystick, the BRC-H700 can be precisely controlled via the camera’s control interface (RS-422 or RS-232C) using the VISCATM protocol. When using the optional BRU-H700 HD Optical Multiplex Unit and optional BRBK-H700 HD Optical Multiplex Card in the camera, this system allows users to control the cameras and transmit digital image data and audio signals from a distance of up to 1,000 meters away via optional CCFC-M100HG Optical Fiber Cables*1. In this configuration, up to seven cameras can be controlled with a single RM-BR300 by daisy chaining the BRU-H700 HD Optical Multiplex Units via the control interface using VISCA protocol. The BRC-H700 comes equipped with a card slot that accepts a variety of optional interface cards, making it compatible with a number of different systems. The interfaces supported with these optional cards include HD-SDI, SD/SD-SDI (down converted), i.LINKTM*2 for use with HDVTM systems, and computer XGA. Other features include an ”Image Flip“ function for installation flexibility and up to 16 presets for operational ease of use. With these exceptional features, the BRC-H700 is ideal for a wide range of high-definition shooting applications. It is also highly suitable for remote shooting in which images are displayed on large-screen displays, such as in houses of worship, in auditoriums of teaching hospitals, in corporate boardrooms, and at sporting events, trade shows, and concerts. The BRC-H700 can also be used for distance-learning applications in which clear, highdefinition images are required, for example, when presenting on chalkboards or white boards. Furthermore, it is an excellent choice for broadcast applications, such as the recording of television programs or as a weather camera. For these and many more applications, make the BRC-H700 your high-definition camera of choice. *1 Up to 10 CCFC-M100HG Optical Fiber Cables (100 m long) can be connected using the supplied extension plugs. *2 i.LINK is a trademark of Sony Corporation used only to designate that a product contains an IEEE 1394 connector.

It also delivers accurate color reproduction, and is ideal in low-light shooting environments. High-performance Pan/Tilt/Zoom Mechanism The BRC-H700 covers a wide shooting range with its highly accurate Pan/Tilt mechanism. It has a very wide pan range of 340 degrees and a tilt range of 120 degrees. Both pan and tilt speeds are variable within the range of 0.25 to 60 degrees per second. This enables the BRC-H700 to capture not only fastmoving objects, but also slow-moving objects without rocking vibration. What’s more, the BRC-H700 incorporates a 12x optical auto-focus zoom lens, allowing for a zoom capability of up to 48x when used in combination with its 4x digital zoom. Versatile Video Outputs The BRC-H700 comes standard with a D-sub 15-pin RGB/YPbPr interface. The unit can also accept a range of versatile optional interface cards that allow for flexible analog and digital system configurations. Choose from the following interface cards to configure a solution that meets your individual requirements: • HFBK-HD1*3 : HD-SDI, HD Analog RGB/Component • HFBK-SD1*3 : Down Converted Analog RGB, Analog Component, Analog Composite, SD-SDI • HFBK-XG1*3 : WXGA, XGA (Letter Box, Crop), VGA (Letter Box, Crop) • HFBK-TS1*3 : i.LINK for use with HDV systems Thanks to these convenient option cards, the BRC-H700 truly functions as an all-in-one, compact robotic camera. *3: Can be installed in both the BRC-H700 and BRU-H700 RS-232C/RS-422 Remote Control (VISCA protocol) The BRC-H700 can be controlled by external devices such as the optional RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit thanks to Sony’s well-known VISCA protocol. All local controls such as Pan/Tilt/Zoom, camera settings, and sixteen presets can be easily accessed, and up to seven cameras can be daisy-chained and controlled by a single RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit.

Easy-to-use and Ergonomically Designed Remote Control Unit (RM-BR300) 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. Optical Multiplex Unit (BRU-H700) Sixteen Presets Various camera settings such as Pan/Tilt/Zoom and focus can be configured for up to sixteen presets per camera. Multi-function IR Remote CommanderTM Unit Basic camera settings, such as the Pan/Tilt/Zoom functions and six-preset patterns, can be controlled from the supplied IR Remote Commander unit. Uncompressed digital data including external sync, camera control and audio signals can be transmitted via the optional BRU-H700 HD Optical Multiplex Unit with the BRBK-H700 HD Optical Multiplex Card installed. With only a single cable connection between the camera and the HD Optical Multiplex Unit, the system is extremely easy to install. The maximum cable length between these units is 1,000 meters – allowing multiple cameras to be located virtually anywhere you want. What’s more, the BRU-H700 HD Optical Multiplex Unit is equipped with two built-in card slots, each identical to the one found in the BRC-H700 camera, allowing for flexible analog and digital system configurations.
