Industry briefings SONY UNVEILS TWO 4K IP-BASED PTZ CAMERAS Claire Lam from Sony discusses smart technology embedded in its game-changing pan-tilt-zoom cameras Sony Electronics has added to its line-up of pan-tilt- zoom (PTZ) cameras by introducing a brace of 4K models accompanied by built-in AI analytics. The SRG-A40 and SRG-A12 automatically and consistently track, as well as naturally frame, the presenters regardless of their movement or posture, for seamless content creation and control. This is all achieved without operation of a computer. Highlights of the cameras include image quality with automation, flexibility of IP, powerful zoom and remote control, all while having an uncomplicated approach to configuration and operation. “Our latest PTZ cameras truly represent a new generation,” explained Claire Lam, head of network camera solutions at Sony Europe. “While they incorporate the image quality that is Sony’s bedrock, these efficient new models are even smarter than ever with the addition of built-in AI analytics, enabling PTZ Auto Framing, paired with the potential resulting from remote control,” she emphasised. The SRG-A40 and SRG-A12 made their debut showcase at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) event in Barcelona earlier this year and are expected to be available in the summer of 2023, with a list price of £4300 and £3600 respectively.
