Getting Started
Operating or storage location
Operating or storing the camera in the following
locations may cause damage to the camera:
• Extremely hot or cold places (Operating temperature:
0°C to 40°C [32°F to 104°F])
• Exposed in direct sunlight for a long time, or close to
heating equipment (e.g., near heaters)
• Close to sources of strong magnetism
• Close to sources of powerful electromagnetic
radiation, such as radios or TV transmitters
• Locations subject to strong vibration or shock
Ventilation
To prevent heat buildup, do not block air circulation
around the camera.
Transportation
When transporting the camera, repack it as originally
packed at the factory or in materials equal in quality.
Cleaning
• Use a blower to remove dust from the lens or optical
filter.
• Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the external surfaces of
the camera. Stubborn stains can be removed using a
soft cloth dampened with a small quantity of detergent
solution, then wipe dry.
• Do not use volatile solvents such as alcohol, benzene
or thinners as they may damage the surface finishes.
The following phenomena may appear on the monitor
screen while you are using the BRC-300/300P color
video camera. These phenomena stem from the high
sensitivity of the CCD image sensors, and do not
indicate a fault within the camera.
Getting Started
Precautions
Typical CCD Phenomena
Vertical smear
A “smear” may appear to extend vertically from very
bright subjects, as shown below.
Video monitor
screen
Pale vertical
smear
Very bright subject (such as an
electric lamp, fluorescent lamp,
sunlight, or strong reflected light)
This phenomenon is common to CCD imaging elements
using an interline transfer system, and is caused when
electric charge induced by infrared radiation deep within
the photo sensor is transferred to the resistors.
Aliasing
When shooting fine stripes, straight lines or similar
patterns, the lines may become slightly jagged.
Blemishes
A CCD image sensor consists of an array of individual
picture elements (pixels). A malfunctioning sensor
element will show up as a single pixel blemish in the
image. This is generally not a problem.
White speckles
When you shoot a poorly illuminated object at a high
temperature, small white dots may appear all over the
entire screen image.
Maintenance
The camera mechanism may cause abnormal noise due
to wear and lubrication loss after a long period of use.
To maintain optimum performance, we recommend
periodical maintenance. If abnormal noise occurs,
consult with your Sony dealer.
Note on laser beams
Laser beams may damage a CCD. You are cautioned
that the surface of a CCD should not be exposed to
laser beam radiation in an environment where a laser
beam device is used.
Precautions / Typical CCD Phenomena

Overview
Features
Compact, 3CCD video camera with builtin pan/tilt/zoom functions
Overview
• The camera integrates the 3CCD camera block, pan/
tilt mechanism, and 12-magnification optical zoom
with 4-magnification digital zoom in a compact body.
The compactness and integration allow the camera
versatile usage.
• The camera is provided with a wide-angle pan/tilt
mechanism of ±170º horizontally, 90º upward and 30º
downward, which enables wide-range remote
shooting.
•The new pan/tilt mechanism enabling smooth camera
movement even at low speed realizes a minimum pan/
tilt speed of 0.25º per second.
• The pan/tilt mechanism is remarkably quiet, even at
the maximum pan/tilt speed of 60º per second.
Mega-pixel 3CCD camera allowing high
image quality and high-resolution remote
shooting
• The camera incorporates three 1/4.7 type Advanced
HAD* CCDs containing 1,070,000 picture elements
in total.
* HAD is an abbreviation of Hole-Accumulated
Diode.
Advanced HAD is a trademark of Sony Corporation.
• The camera realizes the high-quality image and high
resolution, having a minimum illumination of 7 lx,
horizontal resolution of 600 TV lines, and signal-tonoise ratio of more than 50 dB. In addition, the use of
a primary-color optical prism enables shooting with
superior color reproduction.
• A fine image is obtained by employing a newlydeveloped DSP of 14-bit A/D conversion for signal
processing. This also greatly reduces digital noise and
is effective for shooting at low illumination and
shooting of black subjects.
• The aspect ratio of the camera image is selectable
between 4:3 or 16:9. In addition, an optional wide
conversion lens can be attached to the camera,
allowing use in various shooting conditions.

capability of having various image output formats.
Long-distance image transmission and
pan/tilt/zoom control
• Combined use of the BRBK-303 Optical Multiplex
Card, CCFC-M100 Optical Fiber Cable and BRU300/300P Optical Multiplex Unit, and Sony's unique
camera connection technology and optical digital
multiplex transmission technology allows short to
long distance (up to 500 m, or 1,640 feet) transmission
of camera images and pan/tilt/zoom control signals.
Use of the optical fiber cable enables an economical
and easy system configuration for long distance.
• The supplied ceiling bracket allows installation of the
camera on a ceiling.
VISCA camera protocol supported
• The camera is equipped with both RS-232C and RS422 communication interfaces. As the camera
supports the industry-standard VISCA camera
protocol, up to 7 cameras can be connected and
remotely controlled at a high communication speed of
38,400 bps.
• The optional RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit allows
easy camera operations.
• The VISCA protocol allows use of cameras and
controllers of other manufacturers together with those
of Sony.
External video sync function
The camera is equipped with an external video sync
function to synchronize the camera images on multiple
cameras. The camera also has a composite video output
connector and S video output connector as standard
equipment.
Tally lamp
The tally lamp of the camera allows you to make sure it
is selected at a glance.
