The Sony remote control camera BRC-300, is a 3-CCD communications camera mounted on a pan and tilt mechanism. The superior quality of the video resulting from the 3-CCDs and the choice between conventional or widescreen video output makes this camera quite advanced. With the refinement in CCD development, it has over 1 million pixels at its disposal. The camera can be mounted upside down, like from a ceiling or right-side-up because it has a image-flip function.
- 3-CCD Quality with Widescreen Option
The BRC-300 is a highly advanced design full motion video camera for remote education and conferencing application, just to mention a few. The million pixels from the 3-CCD design result in superior color, contrast and detail qualities rivaling the very best pro-sumer camcorders. If your presentations require or deserve the very finest detail, the BRC-300 is just the ticket.
Meeting the demands of the newest widescreen monitors and digital projectors, the camera can actually output a native widescreen image without using mathematical interpolation or aspherical image shaping. It provides real widescreen 16:9 ratio pictures with that extra wide angle fitting more into your frame.

Taking it a step further, an optional RM-BR300 controller has joystick control over other pan and tilt movements, Lens zoom, iris and shutter control and preset camera and lens positions. An optical multiplex unit gives long-distance fiber-optic cable video out and control to the camera up to about 1500 feet.

- The standard wireless remote performs many basic functions that may be adequate for a single or small multi-camera system. The remote will control up to 3 cameras with individual presets. Pan and tilt, focus and zoom, exposure control and up to 6 preset camera and lens positions can be operated in this way. The zoom function even has a slow and fast selection.
- Optional Component and Digital Video Outputs
- The BRC-300 has an accessory slot to accommodate option cards for higher quality video enough for broadcast or for long distance cable runs.

Analog component video or RGB data can be output via the BRBK-301. For the very highest quality video, good enough for broadcast or cable television, the camera accepts the BRBK-302 card which supplies uncompressed SDI video.
