Sony Electronics Introduces Two 4K IP-Based Pan-Tilt-Zoom Cameras

Sony Electronics is creating a lineup of pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras, while also adding two 4K models with built-in AI analytics. The SRG-A40 and SRG-A12 cameras automatically and consistently track, and naturally frame presenters for seamless content creation and control. This is all done without the operation of a computer. The new Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) Auto Framing technology features automatic operation for quick object tracking and rediscovery, as well as multiple Auto Framing options. Highlights of the cameras include image quality with automation, the flexibility of IP, powerful zoom, remote control, and easy configuration and operation.

Sony’s built-in PTZ Auto Framing technology with AI analytics includes multiple Auto Framing angles provide options for close-ups, waist-up or full body images, enabling additional creative freedom and customization options. A combination of advanced and consistent recognition technologies are employed. Both the SRG-A40 and SRG-A12 adopt a Exmor R CMOS sensor for naturally vivid images with less noise that support 4K 30p and Full HD 60p. The SRG-A40 offers Clear Image Zoom technology that doubles the optical zoom from 20x to 30x in 4K or 40x in Full HD, while the SRG-A12 provides up to 12x zoom. With tele convert mode the SRG-A40 can extend up to 80x zoom, while the SRG-A12 can extend up to 24 times.

The new models offer 3G-SDI, HDMI, and IP connectivity and can be controlled remotely through VISCA/VISCA over IP, using a single network cable for power, output and control. They also include Power over Ethernet Plus Plus, allowing for simplified integration into new or existing environments. With robust connection and integration options, the new series takes advantage of PTZ cameras’ distinct ability to provide capture and control even in hard-to-reach locations, while offering new angles and vantage points.
