Samsung Techwin has simultaneously launched a compact vandal-resistant dome camera and a small footprint PoE (Power over Ethernet) network video recorder (NVR). Together the 2MP Full HD SNV-6013 and four channel ‘zero configuration’ SRN-472S provide a solution for retailers looking to deter and detect shoplifting, the makers say.
With a diameter of less than 113mm and a height of 64mm, the SNV-6013 vandal-resistant dome is small enough to fit into the palm of your hand. For retail use, it’s also for installers and users who are looking for a discreet camera for office, healthcare, hotels and transport or where there may be limited space such as in lifts, entrance lobbies and stair wells.
The SNV-6013, which is able to capture 2MP Full HD (1920 x 1080) images, comes with Samsung Techwin’s open platform WiseNetIII DSP chipset which lets users choose their combination of video analytics and video management software (VMS), which matches their requirements.
An enhanced Wide Dynamic Range feature, with performance greater than 120dB, enables the SNV-6013 to overcome the challenge of monitoring areas such as shop entrances, where there may be strong external lighting and large amounts of glass. Suitable it is claimed for internal and external use, the SNV-6013 is vandal-resistant to IK10 and weatherproof to IP66 and includes a Digital Image Stabilisation feature which compensates for camera shake.
The SRN-472S is the makers say for those with limited experience of IP. With a built-in PoE switch and ‘zero configuration’, installation time and cost is minimised by the PoE (Power over Ethernet) feature which removes the need for separate cables to each of the cameras for power and image transmission. The small footprint of just 370x44x320mm of the SRN-472S allows retailers to locate it under a checkout desk or in a small security cupboard.
With an extra HDD installed alongside the 4TB capacity HDD which is supplied as standard, and through a recording bandwidth of 32Mbts, the SRN-472S can record Full HD images in real-time across all of its four channels and store them on-board for up to two months. With both HDMI and VGA outputs, the SRN-472S also provides the option of showing customers, via an ‘in-store’ monitor, that they are being observed. This also negates the need for a PC to locally monitor the system.
The company’s license-free SmartViewer and iPOLiS Mobile monitoring software provides operational and security staff with the option to remotely view live or recorded video from a PC or any Android or IOS supported smartphone or tablet.
As is the case with all Samsung Techwin video surveillance products, the SNV-6013 and SRN-472S are offered with full support services from Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd, including free system design, free technical support and a full three-year warranty.
