Sony SNC-VM601 Overview

The Sony SNC-VM601 Indoor Vandal-Proof Mini Dome Network Camera delivers a wide range of features and a high level of performance with a maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024, a frame rate of 60 fps, and improved sensitivity thanks to the Exmor CMOS sensor.

This camera features the IPELA ENGINE EX signal processing system that allows the camera to provide advanced features such as high frame rate and improved image processing with View-DR, XDNR, and DEPA Advanced. View-DR at 130 dB captures objects clearly, even under harsh lighting conditions, such as strong backlight or high-contrast conditions. XDNR (eXcellent Dynamic Noise Reduction) allows the camera to capture clear, low-noise images in low-light conditions. DEPA Advanced Intelligent Video and Audio Analytics triggers alarms according to user-defined rules. In-camera analytics are enhanced by additional features such as Face Detection, Left Object, and Removed Object Detection.

This camera offers high sensitivity with a minimum illumination of 0.05 lux in color mode and 0.04 lux in B/W mode. It can be powered by PoE (IEEE 802.3af-compliant), 24 VAC ±20%, or 12 VDC ±10% for easy installation.

Excellent 720/60p HD Picture Quality: Gain the huge surveillance benefits of excellent picture quality with 720/60p HD, with up to 1280 x 1024 maximum resolution.
High-Quality and Low-Noise Images with Exmor CMOS Sensor: The high-resolution Exmor CMOS sensor improves image acquisition with its low noise characteristics.
Unique Features from IPELA ENGINE EX Signal Processing System: IPELA ENGINE EX delivers improved View-DR, XDNR (eXcellent Dynamic Noise Reduction), and DEPA Advanced Intelligent Video and Audio Analytics.
DEPA Delivers Intelligent, Customizable Image Capture and Alarm Triggering: The Sony DEPA platform offers intelligent video analytics delivered through a combination of the intelligence built into the camera and the rules and filters that determine which images should be recorded and when an alarm should be triggered.
Vandal-Resistant: The dome is certified as IK10 for vandal resistance. It protects the camera from destructive behaviors.
Operates at Low Minimum Illumination: This camera operates at a minimum illumination of 0.1 lux in color mode (F1.2, View-DR off, VE off, AGC on, 1/30 s, 30 fps) and 0.07 lux in B&W mode at 50 IRE and 30 fps.
Multiple Video and Audio Codecs: The SNC-VB600B supports H.264 (high / main / baseline profile) / JPEG video codecs and AAC (16 / 48 kHz) / G.726 / G.711 audio codecs.
True Day/Night Function for Optimized Images in Different Light Conditions: The Day/Night functionality allows automatic switch between day (color) and night (B/W) mode depending on the light level. In night mode, the IR-cut filter is removed so that the camera becomes sensitive to near-IR light and can reproduce images of scenes that are not visible to the naked eye.
ONVIF Compliance for Compatibility and Confidence: The camera conforms to ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) Profile S, the widely accepted protocol for information exchange between network video devices, allowing ease of compatibility.
Visibility Enhancer (VE) to optimize the brightness and color reproduction of an image dynamically on a pixel-by-pixel basis while continuously adapting to the scene within the given dynamic range
SD card slot for an on-board recording capability
Data recorded on an SD memory card may be lost or damaged by data access during power-off, mechanical shock, memory card detachment, or other operations. Data loss or damage can also occur when a memory card reaches end of life, which varies according to operational conditions. No guarantee is given against damage (including passive damage).
XDNR (eXcellent Dynamic Noise Reduction) technology for clear images without motion blur under low illumination
Smartphone viewer for accessing the camera from a smartphone
Easy focus / easy zoom for easy installation
VBR (variable bitrate) or CBR (constant bitrate) encoding format selectable to correspond with various network conditions
Easy initial network settings by supplied SNC Easy IP Setup guide application
Image stabilizer to minimize the effect of camera shake or vibration for less blurry images
View-DR - Sony's innovative wide dynamic range technology to capture objects clearly and adaptively even under very harsh, severe backlight, or highlight conditions
