Swiftly follow fast-moving action or use the low-speed zoom and slow pan/tilt modes to precisely track subjects. The PTZ Trace Memory function enables you to capture and repeat a series of movements and the PTZ Motion Sync feature blends separate pan, tilt, and zooms into smooth transitions.

For capturing tight sports shots, etc. Clear Image Zoom Technology extends the 12x zoom lens to a 24x digital range while maintaining the exceptional image quality of the Zeiss Vario-Sonnar zoom lens. The BRC-H800 features flexible PoE+ (Power-over-Ethernet) installation, utilizing a single cable to carry both IP camera control and power. For multi-camera productions, a Genlock feature is used to integrate the BRC-H800 with other systems. Control the camera using the included IR remote or use a (separately available) RM-IP500 unit to control multiple cameras. Up to 100 PTZ camera positions can be preset on the BRC-H800.

The BRC-H800 PTZ Camera features HDMI, 3G-SDI, Ethernet, and RS-422 control interfaces. Remote control functions include pan, tilt, zoom, focus, iris, shutter speed, and gain. The BRC-H800 is suitable for use in broadcast studios, remote on-air setups, houses of worship, and live sports applications. The front and rear tally lights are useful for on-air broadcasting and have adjustable brightness levels. Camera function upgrades may be applied by the user via its IP connection. The TAA-compliant BRC-H800 PTZ camera is ceiling- and desktop-mountable and comes with two brackets, screws, an HDMI cable clamp, and an IR remote commander.

Sony BRC-H800 Reviews

Not As Good As I Hoped

By David
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2019-07-11

I bought this camera hoping to see a big improvement from our Sony SRG360SHE cameras. The improvement is minor and there are some negatives that the other doesn't even have. The other person's comment about the fast zooming is true. It is too fast to use in a live scenario, which is a big bummer. Also, the picture quality is really not that much better than the lower quality ones we have. Color and detail are a little more crisp, but not as much as I had hoped for the big price jump. It also goes out of focus on occasion without warning, and has some weird issues with LED lights where it is showing a wave effect, both of which are not happening on the other cameras. We are using them in a medium to low light church service environment. Just thought I would share my experience.

Zoom speed too fast and very unprofessional

By Mike

Our studio replaced a 7 year old SONY BRC-Z700 with the BRC-H800. We immediately noticed the zoom speed (at it slowest setting) was 2/3 faster than the BRC-Z700 which zooms slowly and smoothly and takes 59 seconds to move from full out to full in. The new BRC-H800 zooms fully out to fully in @ 19 seconds which looks very unprofessional, especially for a live broadcast. The camera makes us look like amateurs and inexperienced. I went around and around with Sonys engineers who originally told us both cameras were exactly the same. They even told us to order a new controller (the RM-IP500) at $2,600 and it did not fix the problem. So now we are in for over $9,000 with a so-called broadcast camera that zooms like a $300 VHS camcorder from 1980s.  SONY had no explanation as to why they would design and build a professional camera with an almost useless feature. Do not buy this camera if you want smooth, slow zooms as required in a professional broadcast scenario. We will be purchasing non-SONY equipment in the future.

Nice!

question

Does this camera output 1080p in SDI format natively, or is there a separate card?
Asked by: Anonymous
This camera has an SDI output already. It will send out a 1080p signal through SDI as is.

question

Can this camera be controlled Via RS-422 using the older Sony RM-BR300 remote control unit?
Asked by: Kevin
Hi Kevin, Yes The BRC-X1000/1 does support the VISCA RS-422 protocal BUT connection is through an RJ-45 jack. The RM-BR300 comes with a 9-pin phoenix connector but you will have to make your own cables (page 12 & 22 of the operation manual: https://pro.sony/s3/cms-static-content/operation-manual/3854213171.pdf). -Jen

question

For wiring in this camera with POE, will I need to run a SDI video line, and then a dedicated network line from a POE switch to each camera? Does the POE line carry data too, or will I need a separate network line for control data?
Asked by: Daniel
Hi Daniel G, The POE+ line will carry the control data as well. So make sure your ethernet switch is POE+, the cable is plugged into the LAN port of the camera and it is connected to the controller (by way of the switch). Ralph
