Sony EVI-HD1 High Def Color PTZ Camera

Sony is adding a high-definition model to its EVI camera series. Since it is also compatible with standard definition (SD), this unique p/t/z camera allows end-users to take their first step in HD migration. Conference rooms and boardrooms everywhere are going HD, and Sony’s EVI-HD1 takes the headache out of this transition with the flip of a switch – literally.

The EVI-HD1 inherits many outstanding features from the EVI-D100 P/T/Z camera and couples these with superb HD picture quality. Smooth, high-speed pan/tilt operation, 16x9 aspect ratio images and a built-in 10x optical zoom/wide angle lens, make the EVI-HD1 ideal for small to medium size conference rooms.

Sony’s new EVI-HD1 camera combines a high-quality HD color video camera with the flexibility of remote pan/tilt/zoom operation. With 14 formats to choose from (including eight HD types and six SD video formats), this new dynamic camera allows end-users to decide when they are ready to migrate from SD to HD. The EVI-HD1 is compatible today with existing videoconferencing systems and will be compatible with HD based ones tomorrow.

Key Features & Benefits

  • Video Format Compatible with Multiple Formats from NTSC/PAL to Full HD: The EVI-HD1 camera allows for SD to HD migration. The EVI-HD1 allows end users to shoot an image using the 1080i full high definition video format and output in one of 14 formats, including eight HD types and six SD video formats (e.g. 720p, 1080p, 1080i and HD-Analog and HD-Digital).
  • Quiet, High-Speed Pan/Tilt Action: By adopting the direct drive motor mechanism similar to the drive motor found in the EVI-D100 camera, the EVI-HD1 camera is extremely quiet and moves smoothly and quickly to the designated positions.
  • High-Quality Image Transmission via the Digital Interface (HD-SDI): This new camera outputs an HD image that conforms to the SMPTE 292M serial digital interface standard which allows for long distance transmission of high-quality images.
