Sony Launches Two Outdoor Infrared Bullet Cameras

LAS VEGAS – Sony Electronics is expanding its E Series of Ipela Engine EX IP cameras with two new infrared (IR) bullet cameras. The SNC-EB632R and SNC-EB602R both feature Sony’s Exmor CMOS sensors, which provide added light sensitivity.

The two cameras also combine Sony’s wide dynamic View-DR technology and built-in IR illuminators. This helps identify close and distant objects, and generates clean color video in brightly lit environments. Clear black and white video is produced in darkness as low as 0 lux.

“Many security installations require IP cameras to function in lighting extremes, from full daylight to full darkness,” said Kenichi Mori, director of marketing and product management for Sony Electronics’ Security Systems Division. “The SNC-EB632R and SNC-EB602R are true day/night cameras that can automatically adjust to the level of light in order to produce excellent video in almost any kind of lighting environment.”

The SNC-EB632R, a 1080p camera, produces color video with a minimum illumination of 0.1 lux at 50 IRE. The SNC-EB602R is a 720p camera that can produce color video with a minimum illumination of 0.05 lux at 50 IRE. At 50 IRE, the SNC-EB602R supports IR illumination up to25 meters (82 feet), while the SNC-EB632R supports IR illumination up to 30 meters (98 feet).

The cameras are also designed for outdoor use, use image stabilization technology to minimize the effects of camera shake, and are IP66 rated to be water-proof and dust-tight. In addition, both IP cameras feature Sony’s Ipela Engine EX signal processing system, including:

• View-DR technology that enables wide dynamic range capabilities up to 130dB in HD

• XDNR noise reduction technology that generates clearer images in low light

• DEPA technology that incorporates video analytic capabilities at the camera level

• Frame rate of 30 fps to capture smooth video that is easier to analyze frame by frame

The SNC-EB632R and SNC-EB602R are expected to be available in the third quarter of 2014. They will be supported by major VMS providers, including Aimetis, DVTEL, INC., Envysion, Exacq Technologies, Genetec Milestone Systems, OnSSI, Salient Systems and Video Insight.
