Sony Announces IPELA Engine EX Full HD Bullet Camera with Dual Lighting System
Sony Electronics announced the company’s latest outdoor IP camera, the SNC-VB632D. It is a full HD infrared bullet camera with a dual lighting system featuring an infrared (IR) illuminator and a white LED illuminator. The camera can be configured to automatically switch from IR black and white mode to LED color mode when motion is detected, enabling it to generate clear video under dark conditions in either black and white or color.
“Having both illuminators integrated into the camera is a unique feature that saves users money on equipment and installation,” said Kenichi Mori, director of marketing and product management for Sony Electronics’ Security Systems Division. “Other IP cameras have just one type of lighting, so users who want both IR and white LED options need to purchase and install a complementary lighting system.”
The SNC-VB632D is an ideal, all-in-one camera for transportation, city surveillance and other complex environments. It supports high-performance illumination through the IR illuminator, up to a range of 30 meters in black and white, with a minimum illumination of 0 lux (0.1 lux for color) at 50 IRE. It also features IPELA ENGINE EX, which combines Sony’s unique signal processing and video analytics technologies to provide 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; and
- Image stabilization to reduce the effects of vibrations on the camera, delivering steady, clear images.
Sony will showcase the SNC-VB632D at the ASIS 2014 60th Annual Seminar and Exhibits, taking place from Sept. 29 through Oct. 2 in Atlanta. Visitors to the Sony booth #3604 will see the benefits of Sony’s product range across the retail, city surveillance and casino markets and how they can be integrated into security environments.
The SNC-VB632D is expected to be available through Sony’s product distribution channels in October 2014.
