Sony introduces network camera

October 2002 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

As part of its commitment to developing a range of innovative e-surveillance solutions, Sony has introduced a network camera that incorporates a built-in Internet Protocol (IP) server as well as integrated pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) capability.

Says Sony Broadcast & Professional SA, product manager, Dave Schultz: "Equally suitable for surveillance and remote monitoring, the Sony SNC-RZ30P video network camera is ideal for any environment that requires high-quality colour video to be sent over the network with the flexibility of remote operation, all in an attractive and unobtrusive package. "The SNC-RZ30P appeals to a wide range of users seeking the convenience of an 'all-in-one' camera with remote PTZ control, capable of direct connection to any Local Area Network (LAN)," he notes.

"It is the first IP camera that can stream up full motion video (25 frames per second) of high quality colour images at VGA (640 x 480) resolution," continues Schultz. "Pictures from the camera can be viewed via a standard Web browser or suitable application software running on a PC connected to the network. The direct drive pan-tilt mechanism is virtually noiseless during operation, while the auto focus lens offers a large 25x optical zoom ratio to resolve fine detail even during the night due to the day/night function.

"The SNC-RZ30P supports both ceiling surface as well as desktop mount, while the image stabiliser ensures a steady shot at all times. Integration into existing video surveillance systems is possible thanks to the composite video output that comes as standard," adds Schultz.

Other features include alarm/event handling via either the camera's embedded motion detector or sensor input and 16 programmable pre-set positions. The SNC-RZ30P is also equipped with a PCMCIA type II slot (x2) to extend its local image memory by adding an optional PC card with memory stick. A transparent RS485/232C serial interface is provided for control of other peripheral devices.
