Access video from anywhere, any time

December 2004 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Sony has introduced the new all-in-one MPEG-4/JPEG network colour video camera with embedded IP server and Web page for simple set-up and control.

Responding to the growing demand for an affordable and easy-to-use network camera, the Sony SNC-P1 offers a cost-effective solution for a broad range of remote monitoring applications such as retail, office, manufacturing line, as well as Web casting. In addition to the industry-standard JPEG compression format, the SNC-P1 utilises MPEG-4 compression format, which provides smooth video/audio streaming via ISDN, ADSL and the Internet.

The SNC-P1 incorporates a 1/4-type progressive scan CCD, built-in microphone, and 100Base-TX/10Base-T (RJ-45) network interface in a compact and stylish body. With its built-in Web server, the solution allows users to monitor images and manage the camera on a PC running a standard Web browser.

The camera utilises the MPEG-4 compression format that achieves high-compression ratios, allowing smooth moving images to be streamed over a wide range of bandwidths. Because of its high-compression ratios, users can monitor high-quality moving images with low delay even at low bandwidths.

Incorporating a built-in microphone and an external microphone input, the SNC-P1 allows users to monitor audio in addition to video images. Used with an external microphone, the unit is capable of picking up sound from distant objects clearly. The unit is also equipped with an audio line output for active speakers; users can send an alert or make an announcement at the camera site through speakers.
