Sony, the world’s leading robotic camera manufacturer, is presenting its HD Pan/Tilt/Zoom (P/T/Z) camera lineup with two HD robotic cameras ideally suited for videoconferencing, distance learning, corporate training, and courtrooms.


Multi-format Video Outputs from NTSC/PAL to Full HD
With the flip of a switch on the EVI-HD1, users can easily change between HD and SD output. This popular P/T/Z camera allows for SD to HD migration and can be used in combination with any number of codecs and other professional audio/video systems.


HD-SDI Interface

The EVI-HD1 comes equipped with an HD-SDI interface that allows for long-distance transmission of HD images without degrading the picture quality. The EVI-HD1 is ideally suited for small to medium-sized conference rooms, auditoriums, and classrooms and can integrate with professional audio/video systems without the need for interface conversion.


High-quality Image Transmission

The EVI-HD1 features an HD-SDI interface, enabling long-distance transmission of HD images without degrading the picture quality.


Wide-range, Quiet, and Quick Pan/Tilt Movement

All models in the EVI-HD Series utilise a direct drive motor mechanism for achieving highspeed, quiet, and smooth P/T/Z operations to capture images. These cameras cover a wide shooting range, ideal for capturing extensive areas where face-to-face discussions are critical. The face-to-face experience is enhanced by the unique quiet operation of the direct drive pan/tilt mechanism.


• Pan angle: - 100° to +100° (max pan speed: 300 degrees/s)
