Capture every point of view in 4K with excellent picture quality and efficient IP production workflow

The Sony BRC-X400 PTZ camera is ideal for use in a wide range of environments—from broadcast studios and remote on-air suites to sports stadiums, arenas, houses of worship and lecture halls.

The camera's 1/2.5-type Exmor R™ sensor captures broadcast-quality 4K images with excellent sensitivity, very low noise and rich, natural color reproduction. It's complemented by the integrated high-resolution lens that offers a powerful zoom capability of up to 80x in Full HD** (30x in 4K), with an expansive approx. 70° wide angle coverage to capture every point of view.

Efficient IP-based live production is augmented with support for NDI®|HX (via optional license), allowing flexible configuration with other networked NDI-enabled devices.

Images can also be reviewed remotely via a web browser, with support for RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) ensuring smooth, stable streaming of video plus audio (from an optional microphone, available separately) over an IP network.

Installation and set-up is easy, with a new Picture Setting File*** allowing the same settings to be applied to multiple cameras through a web interface from a laptop or PC. Convenient integration in multi-camera live events is also simplified with genlock support and an "on-air" tally lamp.


  • Excellent 4K images, even in low light: The sensitive 1/2.5-type Exmor R sensor captures high-quality 4K images with very low noise, even in dimly lit environments.
  • Up to 80x zoom: Powerful zoom up to 80x (in FHD) allows frame-filling close-ups with fine details seen clearly. Responsive autofocus ensures that images stay clear and sharp, even at high zoom settings.
  • Wide viewing angle: Cover the whole scene in sports arenas and lecture theaters with a horizontal viewing angle of approx. 70°.
  • Support for NDI®|HX: NDI®|HX compatibility (via optional license) supports efficient IP-based live production, allowing flexible configuration with other networked NDI-enabled devices. Network services, content, and the operating system and software of this Product may be subject to individual terms and conditions and changed, interrupted, or discontinued at any time and may require fees, registration, and credit card information.
  • Multiple control protocols: PTZ and other camera functions can be controlled remotely via S700PTP, CGI, and VISCA protocols.
  • Remote viewing: View pictures remotely over the Internet from a web browser, with support for RTSP.
  • Simpler installation, lower costs: A single IP cable carries camera power, video image, audio output and control signals to simplify installation and reduce cabling costs.
  • Ideal for live production: Genlock allows seamless multi-camera switching in live events. The camera's inbuilt tally lamp is ideal for live productions and reality shows. PTZ Trace Memory makes it even easier to film programs by recalling the usual camera works.
  • Fast, fuss-free set-up: The new Picture Setting File function can apply the same camera settings among multiple cameras for fast set-up.
  • Simplified construction of VR/AR systems: Real-time camera tracking data (pan/tilt/zoom/focus/iris) can be output from the camera over IP network in free-d protocol. It can construct VR/AR system without additional tracking system, easy and cost effective solution.
