Sony EVI-D70 Camera


Take control with Sony’s robotic pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) colour video camera – the EVI-D70P – the successor to the industry leading EVI-D31. The EVI-D70P combines a high quality 1/4 type EXview HAD™ CCD colour camera with the flexibility of a remote pan/tilt/zoom operation, all in a compact easy-to-use package.

Compared to its predecessor, this superior EVI-D70 camera incorporates a wider pan/tilt range with an 18x optical zoom lens and a faster pan/tilt mechanism, making it ideal for distance learning, video conferencing, houses of worship, courtrooms, hospitals and nursing homes, events and concert halls, and just about any other remote shooting application. And best of all, it’s ceiling mountable – a first for Sony’s popular EVI cameras!
