New mini dome cameras unveiled

May 2002 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

Sony has introduced four easy-to-fit colour and black and white mini fixed dome cameras, available in standard and 'ruggedised' versions.

According to Sony Broadcast & Professional product manager Dave Schultz, the new line-up offers high picture quality at affordable cost, allowing museums, businesses, retail and leisure centres as well as 'at-risk' areas to maintain a discrete observation and protection presence.

"Delivering high-resolution video quality in a small, discreet package with an elegantly styled 'triangular' design, SSC-MD33VCE (black and white) and SSC-CD33VP (colour) mini fixed-dome camera models are especially designed to allow quick, simple fitting for installers," he adds. All models feature a high-quality auto iris vari-focal lens that can be freely rotated and adjusted for optimum coverage.

Two ruggedised versions (SSC-MD53VCE and SSC-CD53VP) provide even tough performance due to a heavy duty aluminium, die-cast casing with anti-theft screws and a rainproof 3 mm thickness cover that complies with the IP66 standard. They are particularly suited to outdoor sites such as railway stations or sports stadiums as well as prisons, industrial areas and police stations where there may be a risk of unwanted tampering.

"All dome cameras can be conveniently surface mounted, or can alternatively be flush-mounted using an optional in-ceiling mounting bracket for an even more discrete profile. Just 91 mm in diameter, the polycarbonate dome cover is available in a choice of clear or smoked colours," notes Schultz. All cameras can operate on DC 12 V as well as AC 24 V power.
