LAS VEGAS (ISC WEST, Booth # 22063), April 5, 2006 â€“ Sony Electronics is introducing two new IPELA cameras and three network recorders at this yearâ€™s International Security Conference (ISC) West in Las Vegas.
Other announcements include Sonyâ€™s offering of Motorola mesh network-enabled IPELA SNC-RX550N/W-MT and SNC-RX550N/B-MT cameras, and important installations both on Laguna and Newport Beach, Calif., and at Orlando (Fla.) Regional Healthcare, a private, not-for-profit healthcare network.
â€œWe have a number of high-quality products and initiatives to bring to the forefront of the security industry at this show,â€ said Ken LaMarca, general manager of Sony Electronicsâ€™ security group. â€œWe hope to rally people around the idea of easy, less invasive ways to physical protection, within a budget.â€
On display will be the new SNC-CS10 and SNC-CS11, compact-sized, network cameras that fit into most standard camera housings. With progressive scan CCDs and Advanced DSP technology, and Power over Ethernet capability on the SNC-CS11, these cameras produce high-resolution images for clear, detailed footage, and support JPEG and MPEG-4 compression formats.
Other features of the SNC-CS10 and SNC-CS11 cameras include simultaneous access capability for multiple remote users, multicasting, IP filtering to control network traffic and password protection. Also being showcased will be the SNC-RX550N, SNC-RZ50N and SNC-CS50N model cameras with robust motion detection, as well as unattended object detection capabilities for intelligent monitoring. The PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) Anti-Tampering feature is incorporated for added security.
The camerasâ€™ imaging capabilities include image stabilization and day/night functions to improve capture, as compared to earlier Sony cameras, under a wide variety of lighting conditions. They also can be programmed for pre/post alarm recording to capture events.
These cameras also offer VGA, QVGA and QQVGA resolution, along with a maximum frame rate (in VGA) of 30 fps in JPEG/MPEG4. The IPELA SNC-CS10 and SNC-CS11 models are planned to be available in July, with suggested list prices of $660 and $780, respectively. The SNC-RX550N, SNC-RZ50N and SNC-CS50N cameras are now available with suggested list prices of $2,900, $2,300 and $1,600, respectively.
The new NSR-100, NSR-50 and NSR-25 network surveillance recorders round out Sonyâ€™s lineup for multi-camera monitoring, recording and playback.
The NSR-100 recorder has a storage capacity of 1 terabyte (or 1000 GB), while the NSR-50 recorder has a storage capacity of 500 GB. The NSR-25 recorder is preconfigured with a storage capacity of 250 GB, and its recording capacity can be expanded up to 500 GB using an optional NSBK-250 HDD Kit.
Each offers normal, schedule or motion based recording, time/date or alarm search, audio monitoring, flexible recording/playback capability, RAID (a feature to help prevent data loss on the NSR-50 and NSR-100), alarm functions, dynamic masking, Pan/Tilt/Zoom camera control, and "Hot Spot" monitoring.
The NSR-100 recorder can support up to 64 IP cameras, the NSR-50 recorder can support up to 32, and the NSR-25 supports up to 20, providing flexibility and scalability when these units are configured in a security monitoring system.
The NSR-100 and NSR-50 network surveillance recorders are now available at suggested list prices of $12,000 and $7,500, respectively. The NSR-25 is planned to be available in July with a suggested list price of $5,500.
