The Sony EVI-HD1 is a color motorized PTZ camera that can be switched from displaying standard NTSC/PAL resolution video to outputting high definition images with a maximum resolution of 1080i. By starting off with such outstanding video quality, images will retain their sharpness and color depth even under extreme digital magnification.

Retail stores, shipping facilities and numerous other applications will greatly benefit from this feature, allowing them the use of a single installed camera to patrol a fairly large area. In addition, with today's video facilities rapidly upgrading to HD equipment, this camera can be just as important for use in non-security related applications such as for monitoring the proceedings in a conference room or for recording training videos.

2-Megapixel High Definition Images
With the simple flip of a switch, this camera can be changed from a standard NTSC/PAL resolution camera to a camera capable of producing HD video with the resolution and color depth commonly associated with digital still cameras. Both security and non-security based applications will greatly benefit from this level of resolution, allowing them to use a single camera to cover a large area with no degradation in image performance even under digital magnification.
Ultra Quiet High Speed PTZ Operation
"Run quiet, run fast" should be the motto for PTZ cameras. Thanks to a precision motorized PTZ head mechanism, this camera remains ultra quiet even under high speed pan, tilt and zoom operation. In security related applications, this will allow an operator to quickly follow a suspicious person walking across a threshold, before he has a chance to move off-screen and without motor noise alerting him to the camera's presence. Noise can also be a major concern in non-security applications, when audio is being recorded along with video.

      The camera is easy to install. The only thing that could have been improved upon would be an all inclusive socket for both power and cameral control though a Cat5 cable.

          I got 3 of these to use in a school environment, and have been very impressed with trial runs so far. They are smooth a very quiet. The remote didn't work well with old batteries, but once I tried it with new ones and it worked great. I used it with a a Sony BRC Control panel and works very well! I would recommend it.

            Comments about Sony EVI-HD1 HD Color PTZ Camera:

            We were using a SD Canon PTZ camera in the past and wanted to upgrade to HD. Wow! was I shocked by the prices! I settled on this unit with the appropriate Telemetrics controller. The old Canon camera seems like a toy by comparison to this one. It does come with a remote control which is nice but most likely it will only be used to power the camera on and off since it doesn't offer the control finesse as the wired Telemetrics controller. The mechanism is silent and smooth.
            My only gripes are that it is not made to be mounted upside down and the base seems unnecessarily wide.
