by | Nov 3, 2022 | Gear, Production, Video

Sony’s latest addition to its PTZ camera line-up, the SRG-X40UH, is now available for shipping in the United States and Canada. The camera is an ideal choice for remote communication and monitoring in a wide range of markets which have seen strong growth in the last couple of years, such as corporate, education, healthcare, faith and more.

The SRG-X40UH adopts a 4K Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor and delivers high-quality images in 4K alongside powerful zoom capabilities with a wide viewing angle, UVC and HDMI connectivity. With simple functionality and interface connection, it’s easy to connect and use for many live video applications, including web conferencing, with simple plug n play USB cable connection.

As an affordable 4K PTZ camera, the SRG-X40UH, which was awarded ‘Best of Show’ at InfoComm 2022 in June, delivers outstanding detail and high-quality imagery. By combining Clear Image Zoom technology of up to 40x in FHD and 30x in 4K, and 70 degrees wide viewing angle, the SRG-X40UH delivers natural color reproduction and high sensitivity to capture facial or other relevant details in remote communications situations, even in low light. The rapid PTZ movement with a ceiling mounting option enables the camera to capture important scenes in different locations, from small conference rooms to large auditoriums.

“Over the past two years, the world has witnessed and adapted to drastic changes in the way we work and learn. Such circumstances have created a pressing demand for efficient remote communication that multiple users can access anytime anywhere with high reliability,” said Rich Ventura, Vice President of B2B, Sony Electronics. “At Sony, we’ve seen and driven the adoption of 4K, ensuring all customers can benefit from superior image quality.”

The SRG-X40UH, with its simple UVC and HDMI connections and PoE+ support, can be integrated into existing systems with minimal cabling, and remotely controlled through a VISCA/VISCA over IP command.

The SRG-X40UH is now available for a suggested price of $2,199. For more information and to find out where you can purchase the new camera, please visit pro.sony.
