Sony Australia releases a range of new IP dome security cameras with wide dynamics and ruggedised options for the Australian marketplace: the SNC-DF50 and SNC-DF80 IP dome cameras.
Incorporating 1/3 CCD with DynaView technology to reproduce images in wider dynamic ranges, the SNC-DF50 eliminates whiteout and blackout and is ideal for use in high-contrast environments.
When ease of installation, maintenance and flexible control are essential, the SNC-DF50 IP ticks all the boxes, using a unique ball joint lens mounting for simple installation and easy pan and tilt adjustment.
The Distributed Enhanced Programming Architecture (DEPA) of the SNC-DF50 provides intelligence in the camera head itself, balancing the network load by processing data at both ends and reducing the strain on the organisation’s servers.
The intelligent camera head(s) can be controlled centrally and powered over Ethernet, providing increased surveillance flexibility, reliability and precision.
The advanced intelligent technologies help to facilitate features such as motion detection, people counting and the ability to recognise foreign and unattended objects.
The imaging capabilities of the SNC-DF50 include image capture, with a frame rate of up to 30 frames per second, image stabilisation and JPEG, MPEG4 and H.264 compression formats.
The camera can also be programmed for pre and post alarm recording to capture specific events.
The SNC-DF80 is a ruggedised version of the SNC-DF50 and is designed for use in both indoor and outdoor environments and features a vandal and weather resistant body.
According to Sony, there is an increasing move towards IP-enabled cameras for security monitoring and surveillance in Australia, with users utilising the increased bandwidth and flexibility that the technology offers.
Sony’s two new IP cameras provide users with the ability to easily customise their camera network and deliver exceptionally clear images in all lighting conditions.
Both the SNC-DF50 and SNC-DF80 cameras will be on display at CeBIT 2007, which runs from 1-3 May at Sydney’s Exhibition Centre at Darling Harbour at Hall 5 stand W40.
