By B&H Photo's

Smoothly capture UHD 4K video even in low-light settings with the white BRC-X1000/WPW 4K PTZ Camera from Sony. This compact camera features a 1" type Exmor CMOS image sensor, a 12x Zeiss optical zoom, and PoE+ support.

The large image sensor enables you to create attractive bokeh effects with shallow depth of field.

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 zoom into smooth transitions.

For capturing tight sports shots, etc. Clear Image Zoom Technology increases the optical zoom to 24x in HD and 18x in 4K while maintaining the exceptional image quality of the Zeiss Vario-Sonnar zoom lens. The BRC-X1000 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-X1000 with other systems. Up to 16 camera positions can be preset on the BRC-X1000, enabling a single operator to control multiple units.

The BRC-X1000 camera features HDMI and dual-link 3G-SDI outputs, and Ethernet and RS-422 control interfaces. Remote control functions include pan, tilt, zoom, focus, iris, shutter speed, and gain. The BRC-X1000 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 Sony BRC-X1000 4K PTZ Camera is ceiling- and desktop-mountable and comes with two brackets, screws, an HDMI cable clamp, and an IR remote commander.

We have this camera wired 422 to RM-BR300. Controls movement and can set presets but no control over white balance and gain. What are we doing wrong?

Is the 4K signal only available on the HDMI ...

Is the 4K signal only available on the HDMI output or is there a way to combine the two 3G BNC outputs to form a single 6G output so I can connect it to the Blackmagic 4K Switcher?
Asked by: Raymond
Using the two 3G-SDI outputs you can get a 4K signal. You would need a product like the AJA 12GM 12G-SDI to/from SDI Muxer/DeMuxer which will allow you to turn Dual 3G-SDI in to a 6G-SDI. Or you can consider a 4K HDMI to 6G-SDI converter. AJA SDI Muxer - https://bhpho.to/2K9BU3T BMD - 4K HMDI to SDI - https://bhpho.to/2rvHgjq

Does this have auto-tracking of subjects or faces?
Asked by: Kevin
No auto-tracking feature is currently published by the manufacturer, but because this camera's firmware is easily upgraded via its IP, there may be some future firmware addendums along the way, which may address subject/face tracking.

Could I Control the BRC-X1000 with a Panasonic AW RP120? I would assume over IP connection.
Asked by: Caleb
No you cannot. Panasonic and Sony use different protocols for control therefore Panasonic Controllers can not control Sony Cameras.

Hi Ramey, When connecting the camera to a PoE+ power supply device use a Category 5e or higher. It is also important to make sure the wires are solid copper core and NOT CCAW (Cooper Clad Aluminum Wire). ~Ralph
