Sony Launches New Advanced Security Cameras in South Africa

Sony is adding 4K imaging to its line of security technologies, with the new SNC-VM772R camera. The new model combines the enhanced resolution of 4K with low-light sensitivity leveraging 1.0 type back Illuminated Exmor R CMOS image sensor, bandwidth optimization features, and intelligent scene capture capability to adopt the best picture quality, ideal for city surveillance, transportation, railway, traffic monitoring and airport surveillance applications. 4K technology gives security users the ability to capture content at four times the resolution of Full HD (1080p). With the exceptional detail provided by 4K technology, security professionals can expand their wide area surveillance and still capture, magnify and examine the smallest parts of a scene like a face or a car license plate number - all with a single camera. The SNC-VM772R camera combines these benefits with enhanced visibility, reduced total system costs and flexible and easy installation. The introduction of the SNC-VM772R to the security industry extends Sony's 4K leadership in the broadcast and production industries, where Sony's 4K cameras are shooting blockbuster movies, popular television shows and major sporting events. Sony's 4K digital cinema projectors are in movie theaters worldwide and Sony's 4K TVs bring content to consumers. Sony has developed several unique technologies to overcome the challenges of 4K cameras in the market: improving visibility and light sensitivity while reducing the amount of bandwidth needed to handle large 4K files. The new SNC-VM772R uses a 1.0 type 20MP Exmor R sensor and is capable of 0.1 lx sensitivity for clear image capture in light and dark conditions. A back-lit structure doubles the camera's light sensitivity and a built-in infrared (IR) light source which enhances low-light use and nighttime shooting with visibility at longer distances. In wide area coverage, various lighting conditions exist during the day and night. SNC-VM772R also has 90dB wide dynamic range and 30fps to deliver clear, sharp images for better visibility and recognition. Finally, a 2.9-times motorized zoom lens is matched to the image sensor to maximize video resolution. The lens features optical image stabilization and helps capture images with low distortion. The new SNC-VM772R is planned to be available in the third quarter of 2015.
