Samsung launches new analog and network PTZ dome cameras

Las Vegas, NV (April 6, 2011) - Samsung Techwin America, a global supplier of video surveillance and security products combining superior performance and value, is demonstrating an extensive line of new pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) dome cameras here at ISC West 2011. Introductions include standard-size and mini-dome models in analog and IP network models for indoor or outdoor applications with lenses providing up to an industry-high 43x zoom. The units employ Samsung's latest advanced digital signal processors (DSPs) for superior performance in diverse lighting conditions.

The new line includes standard-size analog PTZ models with 27x, 37x and 43x optical zoom lens options and a mini-dome that houses a powerful 12x optical zoom lens. Embedded with Samsung's W-V DSP chipsets, these cameras offer clear and vivid images with 600TVL resolution (color) at low light levels down to 0.2 lux. All of the units have the same look and feel and share all mounting accessory styles, which makes installation easy across the entire line.

"The breadth of Samsung’s new line of analog and network PTZ cameras ensures that integrators and users can select the best camera for every location," said Frank DeFina, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, North America, Samsung Techwin America. "These new dome cameras deliver a unique combination of performance, functionality and value unlike any other offering available."

The SCP-2430 and SCP-2430H (outdoor model) with 43x zoom feature a 1/4-inch Super HAD CCD with 0.2 lux minimum illumination in pre-fitted housings.

The SCP-2270 provides 27x optical zoom and the SCP-2370 provides 37x optical zoom to capture quality images over expansive areas. The SCP-2270H and SCP-2370TH are outdoor models that are IP66 rated.

The SCP-3120 is a PTZ mini-dome that features 12x optical zoom and high-speed pan and tilt (up to 650 degrees/second). The SCP-3120V and SCP-3120VH (pendant) feature a vandal-resistant body for added durability and anti-shock protection.

New IP Network PTZ Cameras

Samsung's new IP network PTZ models include a 12x mini-dome and full-size models offering 30x, 37x and 43x optical zoom options. All network models have an SD card slot for local recording, support bi-directional audio and are hybrid with analog video out and PTZ control in PoE compatible models.

The SNP-3430H is an IP network IP66 rated outdoor PTZ dome camera with a 43x zoom (3.2 - 138.5mm focal length) lens and 16x digital zoom for extended range. H.264/MPEG-4/MJPEG multi codec provides highly efficient network and recording operation.

The SNP-3371TH (with 37x optical zoom) and SNP-3302H (with 30x optical zoom) are powerful weatherproof IP network PTZ dome cameras (IP66 rated) with true day/night operation and H.264 compression for high quality images with reduced file sizes. The SNP-3370TH includes an automatic tracking function ideal for perimeter surveillance applications.

The SNP-3302 is an IP network indoor PTZ dome camera with a 3.5-105mm focal length lens with a 30x optical zoom and a 12x digital zoom. The SNP-3371 has a 3.5-129.5mm focal length lens and a 37x optical zoom along with a 12x digital zoom. The models provide a staggering 360x/440x zoom, capable of viewing distant objects across large areas.

All lenses are true day/night (ICR), and all provide industry leading resolution in excess of 500 TV lines in the analog video. Advanced DSP capabilities include Superior WDR (wide dynamic range), SSNR II noise reduction, highlight compensation (HLC), low-light performance down to 0.2 lux at 50 IRE, and electronic image stabilization (EIS).

Intelligence (video analytics) inside Samsung’s new PTZ cameras includes object appear/disappear, fence line, motion detection and advanced auto tracking. High-speed pan and tilt speeds are up to 600 degrees per second. All outdoor units in IP66 rated weatherproof housings feature a temperature range of -58° F to +122 ° F. Various mounting options include flush, surface, wall, pendant, pole, roof and corner.
