Overview
  • 1Description

The Sony SNC-CH120 E-Series Fixed Network HD Camera (Indoor, White) is an affordable and compact network security camera that delivers high-quality surveillance footage. Images are captured using a 1/3" progressive scan Exmor CMOS sensor at a resolution of up to 1280 x 1024. Built into the camera is a 2.8-8mm varifocal lens, which offers an adjustable field of coverage.

Images can be streamed in H.264, JPEG or MPEG-4 formats, allowing for flexible data management. In addition, dual streaming of these formats is also possible. The Optical Day/Night function automatically switches the camera from color to a sensitive B&W mode when light levels fall and vice versa, thus ensuring optimum image quality 24-hours a day.

Operating on Sony's DEPA platform, the SNC-CH120 camera offers intelligent motion detection functions including object detection and the ability to set up a virtual borderline. This information is passed on either to the NSR Series recorder or the IMZ-RS400 Series software, where after analysis, a predetermined course of action such as activating an alarm or initiating image recording is triggered. By filtering out irrelevant material, DEPA technology significantly cuts down on network and storage requirements.

With the RealShot Manager Lite recording software, the camera can be quickly setup for recording and monitoring. The camera can be powered from the network itself via an Ethernet cable without any extra wiring for auxiliary power outlets.

The stream squared function enables concurrent streaming of two 4:3 aspect ratio videos in user-selectable SD resolutions. You can resize the image to SD resolution by selecting the entire image or portion of the image from the original view. With the stream squared feature, the security camera can replace 2 SD cameras installed in the same viewing line.
