Sony has released 16 new high-definition (HD) network security cameras and complementary security products.
The range comes in three series to suit various surveillance needs. Sony’s V series has View-DR and distributed enhanced processing architecture (DEPA) advanced for high-quality HD images in tough environments. X series has a compact housing for installation in tight spots, while the E series is designed as a cost-effective alternative.
Several models carry Exmor sensors, which can capture HD images in low light environments. Some of the cameras also have built-in analytics offering system feedback and image analysis in real-time. Most models are available in weather-proof and vandal-proof versions.
Sony has also launched the SNT series encoders and NSR-1000 series storage servers to complement the new cameras. The network video encoders can facilitate migration from analogue-based video systems to IP video surveillance and can stream 30 frames per second (fps) in D1 resolution in a number of video formats.
The NSR-1000 network surveillance recording servers provide storage for analogue, digital, HD and SD cameras. Storage capacity ranges from 500GB to 4TB. Each recorder supports 20 cameras and uses an open-platform design for easy set-up.
The storage server includes monitoring and search modules to incorporate DEPA technology, which increases accuracy of object detection capabilities.
All cameras will be available this month.
