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
• Use of a mobile phone close to this camera may cause
a malfunction of the camera or affect the quality of
images. You are cautioned to turn off any mobile
phone near the camera.
• Never expose the lens to the sun or other strong
light source.
Exposing the lens to the sun or other strong light
source may cause damage to internal parts from
concentrated light. When the camera is not be used,
keep it out of direct sunlight and other strong light or
protect it with a lens cover.
Getting Started
Precautions
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 CMOS image sensor. You are
cautioned that the surface of a CMOS image sensor should
not be exposed to laser beam radiation in an environment
where a laser beam device is used.
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 pan/tilt mechanism
Do not disturb pan/tilt movement while power is
supplied to the camera. Doing so may cause damage or
malfunction.
Precautions
5
Phenomena Specific to
CMOS Image Sensors
Getting Started
The following phenomena that may appear in images are
specific to CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide
Semiconductor) image sensors. They do not indicate
malfunctions.
White flecks
Although the CMOS image sensors are produced with
high-precision technologies, fine white flecks may be
generated on the screen in rare cases, caused by cosmic
rays, etc. This is related to the principle of CMOS image
sensors and is not a malfunction.
The white flecks especially tend to be seen in the
following cases:
• when operating at a high environmental temperature
• when you have raised the gain (sensitivity)
This symptom may be improved by turning the camera
off and then on again.
Aliasing
When fine patterns, stripes, or lines are shot, they may
appear jagged or flicker.
Focal plane
Owing to the characteristics of the pickup elements
(CMOS image sensors) for reading video signals,
subjects that quickly move across the screen may appear
slightly skewed.
Flicker
If recording is made under lighting produced by
discharge tubes, such as fluorescent, sodium, or
mercury-vapor lamps, the screen may flicker, colors
may vary, or horizontal stripes may appear distorted. In
such cases, turn the FLICKER CANCEL function on
(see page 26).
In some cases, such phenomena may not be improved
with the FLICKER CANCEL function.
It is recommend to set the shutter speed to 1/100 sec. in
the areas of 50 Hz power supply frequency and to 1/60
in the areas of 60 Hz.

interlaced scanning: 1080 lines) high-definition
format, which is equivalent to the HDTV broadcast, is
enabled. The HD format can be switched (1080/59.94i
or 1080/50i) with the switch at the bottom of the
camera.
• A volume of information of four times the capacity of
a normal TV broadcast and camera image shot in 16:9
aspect ratio provides a theater-like wide screen
picture.
Multi-format HD outputs
The camera supports output in 720P format (progressive
scanning format with 720 effective scan lines) as well as
in 1080i format. These formats can be selected with a
switch at the bottom of the camera, which also allows
switching between the 720/59.94P and 720/50P formats.

mechanism of ±175º horizontally, 90º upward and 30º
downward, which enables wide-range remote
shooting.
• The pan/tilt mechanism is designed to be quiet so as to
minimize troublesome noise.
• The supplied ceiling brackets allow installation of the
camera on a ceiling or a shelf, etc. in a high position.
“HD” indicates high-definition broadcast with 1,080
effective scanning lines.
2) “SD” indicates standard-definition broadcast
(conventional television).
The camera is equipped with an interface card slot for
the optional BRBK-HD2 HD-SDI Output Card. Use of

shelf, etc. in a high position. You can also utilize an
existing junction box, etc. to attach the camera to a
ceiling.
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 and Connections
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 40
kg (88 lb 2 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.
