Sony has today announced the latest edition to its outdoor camera range with the launch of the SNC-VB632D Full HD infrared bullet camera. The SNC-VB632D employs the newly adopted Dual Light system with infrared (IR) illuminator and white LED, working as an effective deterrent and allowing for clear visibility under dark conditions in either black and white or colour.
The SNC-VB632D supports high-performance illumination during the night-time through the IR illuminator, up to a wide range of 30 metres in black and white, with a minimum illumination of 0 lux (0.1 lux for colour) at 50 IRE. When an object approaches, the integrated video motion detection activates the white LED automatically, enabling colour mode, illuminating objects up to 5 metres away for clear identification in full colour.
“With the Dual Light system, the SNC-VB632D is the ideal all-in-one camera for transportation and city surveillance in complex environments,” Roger Lawrence, Video Security Product Manager at Sony Europe. “The white LED is a visual deterrent contributing to crime prevention around where there is less traffic at night, while the clear visibility in black and white and colour, aids identification and post-incident analysis. It can also reduce total cost of ownership by providing sensor light within the camera.”
The IP camera also features IPELA ENGINE™ EX, which combines Sony’s unique signal processing and video analytics technologies resulting in features such as:
· View-DR technology, enabling a wide dynamic range under high-contrast/backlight conditions up to 90dB in Full HD
· Enhanced DEPA™ Advanced, providing state of the art video image analytics such as face detection
· High frame rate of 60fps for a smoother and less blurry viewing experience
· Image stabilisation to reduce the effects of vibrations on the camera, delivering steady, clear images
Sony will showcase the SNC-VB632D alongside its latest range of solutions and 4K video security developments during Security Essen 2014, taking place September 23 – 26, 2014. Visitors to the Sony booth (Hall 2.0 / Stand 413) will have the opportunity to see the customer benefits of Sony’s product range across the retail, city surveillance and casino markets and how they can be integrated into a security environment, in partnership with OWLS AG (Outdoor Wireless Lighting Solutions) and Casino solution supplier Böhm.
The SNC-VB632D will be available through Sony’s product distribution channels in October 2014.
