The SRG-XP1 and SRG-XB25 support full IP-based operation utilising a single network cable, cost-efficient set-up for power supply, image distribution and camera control.
Sony has introduced two new compact cameras – SRG-XP1 (POV) and SRG-XB25 (BOX) – that deliver high-quality images at 4K 60p alongside full IP connectivity.
To be available from August 2020 onwards, each model is equipped with wide-angle lens or powerful optical zoom, which can offer users choices for sites that are hard-to-access, where there’s no space for a full-sized camera and dedicated operator.
The cameras have been designed for applications including remote communication, monitoring and content production in a wide range of verticals such as corporate, education, healthcare, live broadcast, and more.
Equipped with NewTek NDI|HX1 capability via optional license, both cameras offer flexibility when working with other NDI-compatible hardware or software, anywhere on the network. Further, Real-Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) and Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) are also supported for easy recording and distribution of video and audio.
The SRG-XP1 POV camera is capable of capturing over 100-degree wide horizontal viewing angle, which can be useful for recording reality shows, and in settings such as e-sports and remote meeting/discussion.
On the other hand, the SRG-XB25 BOX camera features 25x optical zoom, capturing footage from a distance for applications like events, lectures, seminars and House of Worship (HoW).
“Recently, the world is witnessing drastic changes in the way we work and learn. Such circumstances have created a pressing demand for efficient remote communication and content production that multiple users can access anytime, anywhere with peace of mind,” said Lawrence Tang, Head of Business & Industrial Solutions Marketing Division, Professional Solutions Company (PSAP), Sony Electronics Asia Pacific. “That trend also increases the need to create and distribute high-quality video content quickly and in an efficient manner. At Sony, we are driven to solve these challenges of our customers, with our network technologies and unique product line-up.”
