|Sony will showcase its new SNC-VM772R 4K video security camera for the first time in Europe|
Sony will be back at IFSEC 2015 (Stand E250) on June 16-18 to showcase its latest range of end-to-end video security solutions aimed at a wide range of different markets such as transportation, retail, banking and city surveillance.
Sony's SNC-VM772R Features 4K Resolution
Underlining Sony’s commitment to performance and quality, Sony will showcase its new SNC-VM772R 4K video security camera for the first time in Europe. The new model combines the enhanced resolution of 4K with low-light sensitivity leveraging 1.0 type back Illuminated Exmor R CMOS image sensor, bandwidth optimization features, and intelligent scene capture capability to adopt the best picture quality, making the model ideal for city surveillance, transportation, railway, traffic monitoring and airport surveillance applications.
4K technology gives security users the ability to capture content at four times the resolution of Full HD (1080p). With the exceptional detail provided by 4K technology, security professionals can expand their wide area surveillance and still capture, magnify and examine the smallest parts of a scene such as a face or a car license plate number – all with a single camera. The SNC-VM772R camera combines these benefits with enhanced visibility, reduced total system costs and flexible and easy installation for customers.
Overcame The Challenges Of 4K Cameras
Sony has developed several unique technologies to overcome the challenges of 4K cameras in the market: improving visibility and light sensitivity while reducing the amount of bandwidth needed to handle large 4K files. Higher-resolution imaging has traditionally come at the expense of low-light sensitivity. The new SNC-VM772R uses a 1.0 type 20MP Exmor R sensor and is capable of 0.1 lx sensitivity for clear image capture in light and dark conditions.
A back-lit structure doubles the camera’s light sensitivity and a built-in infrared (IR) light source enhances low-light use and night-time shooting for improved visibility at longer distances. In wide area coverage, various lighting conditions exist during the day and night. The SNC-VM772R has 90dB wide dynamic range and 30fps to deliver clear, sharp images for better visibility and recognition.
Finally, a 2.9-times motorized zoom lens is matched to the image sensor to maximize video resolution. The lens features optical image stabilization and helps capture images with low distortion.
Sony, Vice President Comments
"4K is the new video security standard," said Katsunori Yamanouchi, Vice President, Sony Professional Solutions Europe. "But 4K imaging is about more than just increased resolution. It's also expanding the application potential of security cameras and helping to transform security and surveillance. The increased resolution covers a larger area, improving situational awareness and ensuring nothing is missed. These benefits help security professionals reduce installation and operating costs as fewer cameras are needed for specific areas."
Sony will be exhibiting the new SNC-VM772R alongside its latest product range through live technology demonstrations with solutions partners at IFSEC on Stand E250, at the ExCeL Centre in London.
