To deliver enhanced coverage from the “Court Annexes” the service facility Gearhouse France has worked in collaboration with rental company Genitech. They have chosen Sony’s BRC-H800 robotic cameras in conjunction with RM-IP500 remote controller once again, recognising its superior behavior in high dynamic “sunny” conditions. Designed for unattended operation, BRC-H800 is a compact but powerful PTZ robotic camera and an ideal complement to other broadcast cameras for capturing images in hard-to-reach positions.
