Remotely capture broadcast quality Full HD images with smooth, silent PTZ

The BRC-H900 remote studio camera combines uncompromising broadcast picture quality with the flexibility of PTZ operation.

Designed for unattended operation, this compact but powerful robotic camera is an ideal complement to other broadcast cameras for capturing images in hard-to-reach or unobtrusive positions. It’s equally at home in TV newsrooms, remote studios and on-air suites, auditoriums, houses of worship, courtrooms or outdoor sports events.

The sensitive ½-type Exmor 3CMOS image sensor captures detail-packed Full HD footage with low noise and a wide dynamic range. Smooth, speedy remote PTZ with 14x optical zoom and on-board image stabilization accommodates wide-angle scenes and tightly framed close-ups. Broadcast-friendly features include dual tally lamps for on-air operation, while operational flexibility is enhanced with options for ceiling, table top or tripod mounting.

There’s also a broad range of video interface and remote control possibilities, simplifying smooth integration into any broadcast or professional AV environment.

Broadcast quality Full HD images

The BRC-H900 delivers uncompromised broadcast quality color pictures in Full HD, thanks to three 1/2-inch type Exmor CMOS sensors. Advanced picture adjust functions include matrix, color correction, white, detail, knee, gamma, master black, black gamma and flicker cancel.


Accurately re-frame shots or track moving subjects with smooth, speedy remote control of pan, tilt and zoom functions. There’s also a slow pan/tilt mode for precise, judder-free low-speed camera movements. Near-silent operation makes the camera ideal for broadcast studios and other noise-conscious environments.


The high quality lens with 14x optical zoom range covers wide angle shots as well as tight close-ups, making the BRC-H900 ideal for use in a wide range of applications, from broadcast studios to conference halls, boardrooms and outdoor events.


With high sensitivity (F10) and excellent minimum illumination (4 lx), the BRC-H900 can capture crisp, low noise pictures even in dimly lit studios and meeting rooms.


On-board image stabilization ensures crisper, more stable images in situations where the camera is subject to movement and vibration.


Pan/tilt/zoom and other camera settings can be controlled using the supplied IR remote commander, or with the optional RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit that can control multiple cameras.


Extensive video outputs – including HD/SD-SDI, component and composite Y/C – give greater installation flexibility in professional broadcast and AV environments.
