PARK RIDGE, N.J. — Sony Electronics announced today the company’s latest outdoor IP camera, the SNC-VB632D. It is a full HD infrared bullet camera with a dual-lighting system featuring an infrared (IR) illuminator and a white LED illuminator. The camera can be configured to automatically switch from IR black-and-white mode to LED color mode when motion is detected, enabling it to generate clear video under dark conditions in either black-and-white or color.
“Having both illuminators integrated into the camera is a unique feature that saves users money on equipment and installation,” said Kenichi Mori, director of marketing and product management for Sony Electronics’ security systems division.
The SNC-VB632D is an all-in-one camera for transportation, city surveillance and other complex environments. It supports high-performance illumination through the IR illuminator, up to a range of 30 meters in black and white, with a minimum illumination of 0 lux (0.1 lux for color) at 50 IRE. It also features Ipela Engine EX, which combines Sony’s signal processing and video analytics technologies to provide features such as:
• View-DR technology, enabling a wide dynamic range under high-contrast/backlight conditions up to 90dB in full HD
• Enhanced DEPA Advanced, providing state-of-the-art video image analytics such as face detection
• High frame rate of 60fps for a smoother and less blurry viewing experience
• Image stabilization to reduce the effects of vibrations on the camera, delivering steady, clear images
The SNC-VB632D is expected to be available through Sony’s product distribution channels in October 2014.
