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.

Features
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.
