Samsung Techwin has launched its new WiseNetIII 2MP Full HD network vandal-resistant dome camera, the SNV-6084. The camera is designed to work effectively in severe weather conditions as well as be resistant to physical attack.
The SNV-6084, which is IK10 vandal resistant and weatherproof to IP66, can withstand high temperature variations of -50°C to +55°C, making it an ideal video surveillance solution in even the most challenging environmental conditions. The low price point of the SNV-6084 makes it ideal for video surveillance projects such as airports, ports, car parks, trading estates and open public spaces where there is a need to capture evidence grade images from a large number of cameras.
Both the SNV-6084’s camera and its in-built heater can be powered by standard PoE (Power over Ethernet), negating the need for the installation of separate cables for power and image transmission, or additional costly midspans.
Equipped with a 3-8.5mm motorised varifocal lens, the ONVIF conformant SNV-6084 is a true Day/Night camera with an infra-cut filter. It is designed to capture high quality colour images at an ultra fast frame rate of 60fps at 1080p and features enhanced Wide Dynamic Range which with performance greater than 120dB can accurately produce images in scenes that simultaneously contain very bright and very dark areas.
In November 2013, Samsung Techwin will further broaden its WiseNetIII 2MP Full HD network range with the introduction of the SNV-5084 vandal and extreme weather resistant dome camera.
Equipped with a 1.3 megapixel camera, the SNV-5084 will share all the key features of the SNV-6084 which include bandwidth friendly H.264 compression with the option to also use MJPEG compression, and a multi-crop feature enabling users to highlight and crop up to nine areas of interest in order for the camera to only send the images within that area at a preferred resolution and frame rate, enabling a much smarter and efficient use of the available network bandwidth.
Other key features include Digital Image Stabilization (DIS), which negates the effects of vibration, and Defog which can be used to help improve the clarity of images captured in poor weather conditions such as rain, smoke or fog. A built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC memory slot provides the opportunity for authorised users to remotely access and download video that has been recorded onto a memory card.
The SNV-5084 and SNV-6084 will both offer Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) which can assist in the detection of activity by various means, such as tripwire and enter/exit direction, object appear/disappear and ‘tampering’, which creates an alert if paint is sprayed on a camera lens or there is unauthorised movement of a camera away from its usual field of view. Alternatively, the motion detection technology built into the WiseNetIII DSP chipset can greatly reduce the false alarm rate by learning what is the normal motion of the scene and ignoring, for example, the fluttering leaves of trees.
The SNV-6084 and SNV-5084 join 13 other camera models that incorporate the WiseNetIII DSP chipset. These have been developed by Samsung Techwin as a result of a market research programme which identified what users and installers felt were the key ‘must haves’ in order for high definition IP network cameras to automatically become the preferred choice when a new video surveillance system was being specified, or an existing system was being upgraded.
