HD Color Video Camera
The High-Definition, All-in-One,
Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) EVI-HD1 Color Video
Camera Brings Scenes to Life
Sony, a leader in the robotic camera industry and a long standing
leader in HD technology, is combining its strengths with the
introduction of its first high-definition PTZ camera. Joining the
popular EVI family, this unique camera allows you to take your
first step towards HD migration with the flexibility to output
analog or digital video signals – from standard definition (SD) to
full high definition (HD). Conference rooms everywhere are
making the transition to HD, and the Sony EVI-HD1 makes the
transition easy with the flip of a switch – literally.
The EVI-HD1 HD Color Video Camera employs a 1/3-type HD
CMOS image sensor boasting two million effective pixels and
can be used in combination with any number of codecs and
other systems to produce high-quality, high-resolution images.
The EVI-HD1 inherits many outstanding features from the
popular EVI-D100 PTZ camera and couples these with superb
HD picture quality.
With its wide field of view, built-in 10x optical zoom lens,
16:9 aspect ratio image and high-speed, quiet pan/tilt
operation, the EVI-HD1 can cover subjects across wide areas,
with minimal disturbance.
Combining convenient features such as auto focus/auto
exposure, 6-position presets, and external/remote control,
the EVI-HD1 camera is ideal for applications such as
videoconferencing, distance learning, and corporate training.

-Megapixel HD CMOS Sensor
The EVI-HD1 incorporates a newly
developed wide-angle lens for wide field-
of-view image capture, a plus for small to
medium-sized conference rooms.
The EVI-HD1 incorporates a 1/3-type HD
CMOS sensor (a total of two million
effective pixels) providing outstanding
picture quality and high resolution images.
The EVI-HD1 comes equipped with an
HD-SDI interface terminal (SMPTE 292M
compliant) that allows for long-distance
transmission of high-quality HD images
without degrading the picture quality.
Wide-Range, Quiet, and Quick
By adopting a newly developed direct
drive motor mechanism, the EVI-HD1
camera is extremely quiet, moves smoothly
and quickly to designated positions and
can cover a wide shooting range.
The EVI-HD1 can store up to six preset
values for pan/tilt/zoom, focus position,
exposure mode, and white balance mode
and can even retain these settings when
the camera is shut off.
