BSI Reveals New Pan Tilt Roll Zoom Camera - Waterproof Remote-controlled Compact Wireless HD Camera System

Hanover, Md. --Broadcast Sports, Inc. (BSI) a leading provider of wireless audio, video and communication services, will reveal its new Pan Tilt Roll Zoom remote-controlled wireless camera system at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) 2012 in Amsterdam today. The Pan Tilt Roll Zoom camera, known as PTRZ, is a waterproof camera originally designed to be mounted on sailing vessels, and has several additional water-based sporting event applications including rowing, kayaking, yachting, surfing, water skiing, jet skiing, and swimming. The PTRZ debuted this summer as it captured action shots during an international, world-class sporting event in the UK. BSI is also adapting the camera for land-based applications that would benefit from the camera's robust functionality and sealed mechanism



The PTRZ is a premium 1080i HD camera with a small footprint. Its high-quality 10x optical zoom lens provides outstanding performance for its compact size of just 8.25 inches x 6.5 inches, and weight of less than 4.5 pounds.

All aspects of the camera are adjustable remotely via a wireless UHF transmission channel to the built-in data receiver. The operator can adjust the pan, tilt, roll, and zoom functions as well as the red/blue gain, iris, focus, shutter speed, saturation, master gain, and master pedestal. The operator also has the flexibility to change the RF parameters of transmission frequency and modulation scheme, and switch from standby to operational mode.

The PTRZ camera uses a COFDM transmission scheme (QSPK and 16QAM) and encodes high definition video using H.264 MPEG-4 and audio using MPEG 1 Layer II. It operates on frequencies from 1.4 - 1.5 GHz or 2.0 - 2.5 GHz, and BSI can supply models for other frequencies.

Mechanically, the PTRZ will pan 360° continuously, tilt through 60° (+40°/-20°) and roll +/- 30°. The whole camera system is sealed in a waterproof unit for harsh environments, and there is a quick install and release mechanism for faster set up.
