Sony BRC-Z330 - Affordable HD CMOS P/T/Z Camera

Sony introduces the BRC-Z330 to its BRC Series. Equipped with a 1/3-type 2-megapixel CMOS image sensor, this camera provides “high quality” picture performance to accommodate today’s growing demand for full HD images. The camera’s wide pan/tilt ranges and smooth pan/tilt/zoom capability makes it perfect for deployment in locations such as houses of worship and auditoriums, and at education facilities, conferences, and concerts.

Compact Size and Silent Mechanism
The BRC-Z330 is the smallest model in Sony’s BRC Series. 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. Above all, this camera also incorporates a relatively low-power-consuming CMOS image sensor.

18x Optical Zoom (72x With Digital Zoom)
By incorporating an 18x optical zoom lens, the BRC-Z330 enables users to zoom in on small or distant objects with a high degree of accuracy. The use of a 4x digital zoom in combination with this optical zoom greatly improves the camera’s zooming capability – enabling you to capture accurate physical movements and natural facial expressions of people located far away.

1080i, 720p, and SD Output
The BRC-Z330 simultaneously delivers stunning HD images (1080i or 720p) and SD images. This dual-output capability allows the camera to be integrated into both HD and SD systems, which is good for users who are aiming to migrate into a complete HD system.
