Sony EVI-D70 overview

  • 1Description

The Sony EVI-D70 is a remote controlled Pan/Tilt/Zoom Communication video camera that is compact, easy to use, and is ceiling mountable. Incorporating an 18x optical zoom lens, the camera allows a user to zoom in on a small or distant object with exceptional clarity. The unit comes with a wireless remote controller.

High Speed and Wide Range Pan and Tilt
The camera offers a wide pan angle of 170 degrees from center. And it has a maximum pan speed of 100 degrees per second. The unit will tilt upward a full 90 degrees and downward 30 degrees. Its tilt speed is a maximum of 90 degrees per second.
18 x Optical Zoom
The EVI-D70 offers a high quality 18 times zoom lens that, at its widest, offers 48 degrees of horizontal view, and at full zoom 2.7 degrees. The camera has a digital zoom feature that adds 12x power to the optical lens zoom.
Six Pre-Set Positions
The user may store up to 6 predetermined positions of the pan/tilt/zoom for instant recall. The presets also include picture parameters like white balance and exposure features.
Alarm Feature
These communication cameras provide an alarm function that can detect changes within the user-designated area of an image. When a change is noticed, the camera outputs and alarm trigger signal to external equipment via the VISCA protocol.
Control Protocols
The EVI-D70 camera can be remotely controlled via either RS-232C or RS-422. RS-422 offers control connections up to about 4000 feet. An RS-232C controller (a computer) can be up to about 150 feet from the camera.
Infrared Filter
The camera, in extreme low-light conditions, is sensitive to infrared beams not visible to the human eye. The infrared-cut filter makes the camera effective in both day and night conditions.

    Sony EVI-D70 reviews

    EVI-D70 1/4" CCD Color Pan/Tilt/Zoom Communication Camera is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Single Chip SD camera Nice, no-frills, standard def, 4:3 video. Gets very grainy and takes several minutes to auto white balance in low light. Remote control lacks options to set/control white balance and other features as these are apparently only controllable by VISCA commands (and the Telemetrics controller doesn't have this capability either). Operation using Telemetrics controller is smooth and fluid, but servo motors can be distinctively heard at some speeds... like a printer. Just wish there wasn't such a huge gap between SD and HD cams. If GoProHD cams are used by Discovery Channel and many, many other pros for serious videography and they only cost $300, then surely Sony can make an HD version of this camera for a hundred or so dollars more, not thousands!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I purchased 2 of these camera's and I was 100% sure i would be sending them back. After installing the cameras, and hooking them up to our Edirol V8 Video mixer. I WAS BLOWN AWAY!!! these cameras out perform out Cannon XL2 Video camera. We use very low light in our Worship Center especially during our music part of our worship service. We have some color backlighting on the back wall of our stage. but we have the house lights off, and the front stage light very dim. I cannot say how blown away I am and impressed with these cameras! Right now we are looking to purchase 3 more of the cameras. With possability more in the furture! They have an awesome picture. when the camera feed is shown on our projector screens above the stage, or on flat screens in our coffee shop, or on our online feed, or on our dvd's, or on our post produced copy of our online version THE PICTURE IS AMAZING. The person even has a 3d like quality. the image/person pops out from the background.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good camera I have three of these (non-IP) cameras in a neurodiagnostics lab to video patients in both visible and IR light. They are individually connected to seperate PCs via VISCA RS-232 serial cable and controlled via on-screen software (a truly excellent feature) provided by Sony at no charge. In terms of signal we just use the composite video out connected to a Winnov 1000+ AV card. Another great feature is the mechanical IR cut filter which enables excellent performance in low light/IR environments. I'll be buying two more of these units this week and will be installing them with S-Video cable. Pros: 1. Low cost. 2. Free PC interface software for remote control. 3. Mechanical cut filter. 4. Good picture. 5. 18X optical zoom 6. Easy to set up and use. 7. Still working flawlessly after 3 years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable and easy to install We now have two of these units, both connected to the same Sony camera control unit. All our directors love it. This model is easy to install, has a sharp image even in low light situations, and we love the camera boot presets! The digital zoom even looks good. By the way, the manual is written in normal English!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well The Sony EVI-D70 exceeded my expectations. The picture clarity was very good. I like the ability to preset up to 6 different locations, and then simply hit the preset button on the remote to move to the preset you selected. The back light feature is nice as well. Overall I would purchase this item again. I use this camera for live video streaming in flash format, and the results are very good. The one request I would make from the manufacturer would be to add a slow function as the camera pan option is used. The up,down,left and right pan is a bit fast. The pan slows when zoomed on a close object, but when zoomed out it speeds up. It's not a big deal since I generally zoom at a person standing while they are speaking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Preforms better that expected! We use this camera in an Auditorium where lighting is not the best - we were blown away with the quality of video it provided for our recording!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price We use it for presentation. Great zoom and clarity. Low light makes the picture grainy and the pan and tilt move to fast to make small adjustments. Needs a slow speed for that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for webcasting I've installed 2 of these in a web-based classroom along with the joystick remote control and they work great - very good range of motion and zoom. One camera is for the classroom presenter and the second is for the learners in the room. I only wish this camera supported more presets, but because it was a lower price it was the better choice for this instalation.
