"HD is transforming the security industry but few users are taking full advantage of the technology's capabilities or breadth of features," said Miguel Lazatin, Senior Manager, Marketing, Sony Electronics Security Group. "With the launch of these new HD cameras, Sony is now able to offer customers security solutions, regardless of budget, in either digital or analog formats."
Sony's HD range of V, E and X Series cameras provide superior picture quality due to innovations such as View-DR and XDNR technologies. View-DR technology incorporates the latest in wide-dynamic- range technology with v isibility enhancer which enhances video quality where contrast differs and XDNR allows these cameras to provide quality HD images, even in the most challenging backlit environments. Designed for the highest quality digital imaging, Sony's Exmor™ CMOS sensors ensure the capture of high definition images in low light environments. Many of the new models incorporate in-camera analytics offering system feedback and image analysis in real time.
One new security camera incorporating these features – and more – is the SNC-DH180 vandal-resistant camera. With built-in infrared (IR) illuminator, it delivers excellent images even in absolute darkness. This dual-stream network camera supports H.264, MPEG-4 and JPEG compression formats and is available in a ruggedized model for surveillance applications in high-traffic environments.
With the latest additions to the V and X-Series of surveillance cameras Sony now offers more than 25 HD network models. The E Series includes entry-level models that combine high picture quality and a robust feature-set at a cost-effective price. The X Series offers cameras for unique surveillance installations.
Sporting an ultra-compact housing and stylish design, the X series is used in environments that require high performance in a small footprint. The new cameras are available in a variety of form factors including low profile mini-dome, vandal resistant mini-dome and fixed/boxshape. As regards to simple and easy operation, RealShot Manager Lite software is bundled with those cameras. This software allows users to record up to 9 cameras on free of charge basis.
For users that demand feature-rich performance, but still operate on an analog infrastructure, Sony is also adding two new analog cameras. The SSC-N21A and SSC-N11A are low-cost, indoor mini-dome cameras offer high-performance in a simple to install and maintain form. Both cameras offer top quality surveillance video for entry level users.
