The Sony BRC-X1000/1 4K Pan Tilt Zoom Camera is Sony's first 4K remote camera, combining uncompromising broadcast picture quality and smooth, silent PTZ operation with the flexibility of 3G-SDI and HDMI connections.

Designed for remote operation, this compact yet powerful robotic camera is an ideal complement to other broadcast cameras for capturing images in hard-to-reach or unobtrusive locations. It's equally at home in TV newsrooms, remote studios and on-air suites, auditoriums, houses of worship, courtrooms, or sports stadiums. It's also particularly suited to efficient multi-camera set-ups under the control of a single operator.

The 1" Exmor R CMOS image sensor captures detail-packed 4K footage at 30p with 4x the pixel count of Full HD, and excellent low-light sensitivity. The large image sensor also results in beautiful 'bokeh' effects with a shallow depth of field.

Speedy, near-silent PTZ operation with 12x optical zoom accommodates both wide-angle shots and tightly framed close-ups, with Clear Image Zoom 18x (4K) and 24x (HD) extending this range even further without visible loss of resolution. In HD resolution, 24x zoom can be doubled to 48x with Tele Convert Mode.

Broadcast-friendly features include dual tally lamps for on-air operation, while operational flexibility is enhanced with options for ceiling, table top, or tripod mounting. There are also a broad range of video interfacing and remote control possibilities, including support for PoE+ and genlock for smooth integration into any broadcast, professional, or corporate AV environment.

NOTE: The BRC-X1000/1 is a US/Canada model which is bundled with the AC-UES1230MT AC power supply and cord. In all other regions the AC power supply and cord are sold separately.


Enhanced Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) operation

Accurately re-frame shots or track moving subjects with smooth, fast, near-silent remote control of pan, tilt, and zoom functions. There's also low-speed zoom and a slow pan/tilt mode for precise, judder-free camera movements. PTZ Trace Memory allows a sequence of camera movements to be memorized and followed whenever required. PTZ Motion Sync smoothly blends separate pan, tilt, and zoom movements for seamless, professional-looking transitions. You can program up to 100 preset positions for pan/tilt/zoom operations.

High Quality 12x Optical Zoom & 18x (4K) or 24x (HD) Clear Image Zoom

The high quality Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 12x optical zoom range covers wide angle shots as well as tight close-ups. Clear Image Zoom* expands this range to 18x (4K) or 24x (HD) without sacrificing detail. In addition, the Tele Convert Mode can double this range again, up to 48x zoom while maintaining 1920 x 1080 resolution.

*NOTE: Clear Image Zoom is a Sony original intelligent interpolation, which analyzes the input image and increases the resolution of the image.

Remote Operation

PTZ and other camera settings can be controlled using the supplied IR remote commander, or with an optional RM-IP500 Remote Control Unit (sold separately) that can control multiple cameras.

Versatile Video Outputs

Enjoy greater installation flexibility in professional broadcast and AV environments with dual link 3G-SDI (x4) and HDMI video outputs.

Always Up to Date

New camera functionality and performance improvements can be added via firmware updates over IP.

Uncompromising 4K Images

The camera's large, back-illuminated 1" Exmor R CMOS sensor delivers uncompromised broadcast quality color pictures in detail-packed 4K 30p, with 4x the resolution of Full HD. Footage can also be captured in Full HD 60p, ideal for fast-moving sports action.

Cinematic 24p Imagery

The camera can also operate in 24p mode, for video footage with a rich, filmic look.

Excellent Low Light Sensitivity

The BRC-X1000 can capture crisp, low noise color video images in light levels as low as 1.7 lux, making it an ideal choice for dimly lit live hall and theater.

Flexible Installation

Integration is simplified in a wide range of environments, with PoE+ (Power over Ethernet) to reduce cabling requirements and VISCA control over IP.

RCP Connectivity

In an studio environment, BRC-X1000s can be controlled via Sony’s Remote Control Panel RCP-1500/1501/1530 (not included). Connection can be made over IP networks.


Genlock simplifies integration with other systems in multi-camera broadcast environments.

Front & Rear Tally Lamps

Ideal for on-air broadcast use, the BRC-X1000 features dual tally lamps on the front and rear of the camera body. Brightness of the front tally lamp can be adjusted in two steps.
