rooms and boardrooms everywhere are going HD, and Sony's EVI-HD1 takes
the headache out of this transition with the flip of a switch -
literally. Sony is adding a high-definition model to its EVI camera
series. Since it is also compatible with standard definition (SD), this
unique p/t/z camera allows you to take the first step in HD migration.
The EVI-HD1 camera combines a high-quality HD color video camera with
the flexibility of remote pan/tilt/zoom operation. With 14 formats to
choose from (including eight HD types and six SD video formats), this
new dynamic camera allows end-users to decide when they are ready to
migrate from SD to HD. The EVI-HD1 is compatible today with existing
videoconferencing systems and will be compatible tomorrow with HD based
ones. It also inherits many outstanding features from the EVI-D100
P/T/Z camera and couples these with superb HD picture quality. Smooth,
high-speed pan/tilt operation, 16x9 aspect ratio images and a built-in
10x optical zoom/wide angle lens, make the EVI-HD1 ideal for small to
medium size conference rooms.
