Sony Introduces SRG-120DS Pan/Tilt/Zoom Camera
Sony is bringing the latest addition to its SRG camera series, the SRG-120DS pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) camera, to the Australian market. –
The addition of the SRG-120DS sees Sony offering a total of six full-HD PTZ cameras under the SRG series, which Sony states, sporting an all-in-one compact and lightweight design, are easy to install in a variety of locations.
Sony states that, along with the broadcast and security markets, the SRG series is suitable for a range of applications across the judiciary, healthcare and education sectors.
“Building on the success of Sony’s SRG-120DU, the brand new SRG-120DS desktop PTZ camera is equipped with 3G-SDI video interface,” Sony states.
“The versatile interface allows long-distance system integration, and users can seamlessly connect the camera with multiple devices, including video conferencing system and PCs for lecture capture.”
Sony’s SRG series can be controlled via the VISCA protocol over IP connections, and are compatible with Sony’s RM-IP10 IP remote controller, enabling pan, tilt and zoom operation with optical three-axis joysticks, with users able to control up to 112 cameras over IP connections by using five remote controllers. Camera control with the VISCA RS-422 and RS-232C allows the cameras to be controlled remotely.
The cameras are also equipped with Sony’s View-DR technology, accommodating high-contrast scenes, making sure that every presenter is correctly exposed, and expanding the dynamic range for clear images under harsh back-lighting with extremes of light and dark in the same scene.
The SRG-120DS will be available in Australia from April.
