Sony launches sensitive network cameras with Exmor R CMOS sensors

Basingstoke, Hampshire (UK)

The new SNC-VM642R from Sony

Sony is launching eight new full-HD video security cameras to add to its latest line up of sixth generation (G6) range of network cameras, delivering on the ever increasing demand for greater image clarity within the video security market.

The new V and E series cameras include the V-Series SNC-VB640, SNC-VB642D, SNC-VM641, SNC-VM642R, which incorporate the main features of 1080p/60 fps, high sensitivity, view-DR, audio, SD card, easy focus, PoE, AC24V/DC12V, sensor input/output, and the E-Series, SNC-EB640, SNC-EB642R, SNC-EM641, SNC-EM642R, with the following main features: 1080p/60 fps, high sensitivity, view-DR, audio, SD card, easy focus, PoE.

Using advanced imaging technology, Sony’s cameras are engineered to offer security professionals clear detail and higher visibility through excellent low-light sensitivity, ideal for a wide range of demanding applications, including city, transport and commercial surveillance.

Further displaying Sony´s heritage in core technologies, these upgraded G6 cameras include high performance image sensors, lenses and image processors. The new V and E series cameras can capture images beyond the reach of conventional security cameras, helping to provide security professionals with better visibility and in turn greater accuracy.

This improved sensitivity is made possible with the Exmor R CMOS sensor and excellent dynamic noise reduction (XDNR), offering optimum clarity with noise and ghost free images, meaning it is able to achieve the minimum illumination figure of 0.006 lux(30IRE) and 0.01 lux(50IRE). High sensitivity capabilities ensure the colour integrity of images is maintained even in poorly lit conditions, providing operators with ease of identification. This low light capability is especially invaluable in applications such as city surveillance at night, which is increasingly common and a fast-growing area of demand in the security industry.

Security professionals can now capture objects in dark conditions from a distance of up to 100m with the V-series, and up to 60m with the E-series. This extended coverage is made possible through the addition of the Exmor R sensor into these enhanced cameras. The Exmor R sensor together with the powerful integrated IR illuminator ensures the cameras are able to capture high-quality IR images without overexposure. This industry-leading feature equips security personnel with more accurate and insightful imagery, encouraging swift and intelligent decisions.

Reacting to the increasing customer requirement for SD card recording and 2-way audio, Sony has purposefully strengthened the feature set of the new E-series in line with this. The SD card is a back-up option in the event of network outage where the camera loses connection. With this additional feature, the camera can continue recording while the connection is being restored, providing security personnel with peace of mind.

Further to this, the new E-Series now supports 2-way audio features, providing users with remote intercom and audio recording functionality wherever it is needed, in one cost effective solution.

These new additions to Sony’s video security V and E-series range not only provide enhanced imaging technology, but also incorporate the same User Interface, usability and network video management software connectivity that is present in Sony’s existing solutions.

“High-quality imagery is at the heart of our business, which is why we continue to invest in new technologies to bring our customers the best possible images they’re trying to capture,” said Roger Lawrence, Video Security Product Manager at Sony Professional Solutions Europe. “Investing in these technologies is all about meeting the changing needs of our customers, which is why these new solutions have been designed with features that help users improve accuracy and make quicker decisions, from improved visibility in low light to increased range.”

New IP surveillance catches contraband smugglers at county jail

Colquitt County jail in South Georgia, needed to make some significant upgrades to their surveillance infrastructure if they were going to fulfill their obligation to not only keep the Colquitt County public safe, but the inmate population as well. The previous black and white analogue system had become outdated and no longer met their requirements and so a completely new video system from Pelco by Schneider Electric was selected to renew and upgrade the system using the latest IP video surveillance technology.

Vivotek solution benefits enforcement system in Argentina

Until Vialseg developed a new system, the traffic light enforcement system in Argentina relied on devices based on physical inductive loops installed under the pavement and a physical connection to the traffic light controller. This traffic light enforcement system without a physical connection to the street and traffic lights created constant down time, and resulted in a lack of captured violations due to road maintenance or lost connection with the traffic light itself as two common examples.
