Samsung's new SmartDome

March 2009 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

It is intelligent, it is easy to install and it is capable of adapting to a range of environmental conditions. This is how Kenny Chiu, marketing manager of Elvey Security Technologies, describes the new 36x Optical Zoom SmartDome camera system SCC-C7478 from Samsung Electronics.

The high-performance camera has been designed to achieve superior resolution of 540 TV lines, using full digital image processing and special algorithm technologies. Empowered by 360° endless pan and 180° tilt functions, it operates at high-speed to a maximum of 360°/seconds. “Its performance is made all the more remarkable with its 432x power zoom (36x optical, 12x digital) and auto focus functions, which make object identification easier than ever before.”

Explaining its modus operandi in more detail, he says its intelligent, micro-stepping technology allows for one step angle to be divided by 256 segments. For day-night applications, Chiu says the SCC-C7478 delivers optimal picture quality via a moving-filter for true Day/Night function where objects can be identified even in dark environments.

Additional features include built-in cooling fans and ring-defroster, enabling the camera to withstand harsh outdoor conditions such as rain, dust and cold.
