Samsung has introduced five additional ‘affordable’ HD network camera models following on from the highly successful launch in June 2012 of the SNB-5001 1.3 megapixel network camera.
“The level of interest in the SNB-5001 from customers across Europe has been remarkable but has not surprised us,” said Tim Biddulph, IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “We knew from our conversations with installers that there would be a greater demand for HD cameras that can capture evidence grade images if they could be offered at a price which would make them affordable for the majority of office and retail video surveillance projects. The introduction of these additional models will provide installers with the flexibility to choose a camera specification which matches their client’s specific requirements.”
All of the ONVIF compliant models support H.264 and MJPEG compression methods, providing the option to simultaneously transmit images to multiple locations at various frame rates. A number of different users, if authorised, are therefore able to monitor live images at one location, record video evidence at another or view live and recorded images on a Smartphone or iPhone via the Samsung iPOLiS application.
The five new models are:
SND-5011 – 1.3 megapixel network dome camera with 3mm fixed lens
SND-5061 – 1.3 megapixel network dome camera with 3~8mm varifocal lens
SNB-7001 – 3 megapixel Full HD network camera
SND-7011 – 3 megapixel Full HD network dome camera with 3mm fixed lens
SND-7061 – 3 megapixel Full HD network dome camera with 3~8mm varifocal lens
Each of the models are equipped with a scene change tampering feature which creates an alert if, for example, paint is sprayed on a camera lens or if there is unauthorised movement of a camera away from its usual field of view.
Other shared features include four programmable Motion Detection zones, 12 programmable Privacy Zones and PoE (Power over Ethernet). The new models also have a Day/Night feature which automatically configures the camera to capture either colour or B/W images depending on the prevailing lighting conditions. Fully compatible with Samsung’s license free NET-i-Viewer software, the cameras and domes have a multi–language webpage for easy set up.
