Samsung Techwin’s new SNP-6200RH Full HD 20x optical zoom IR network dome camera is aimed at airports, ports and other transport users, besides car parks, open spaces and retail and industrial estates.
The SNP-6200RH PTZ network dome camera is able to capture Full HD (1920x 1080). Its built-in IR LEDS can illuminate objects at a distance of up to 100m by focusing the beam as the camera zooms, resulting in clear imaging even when the field of view is in total darkness, the makers say.
The ONVIF conformant SNP-6200RH comes with Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology for places where there may be strong contrasting lighting. It is also weather-proof to IP66 as well as IK10 vandal resistant, and can withstand high temperature variations of minus 50 degrees C to plus 55 degrees C, making it suitable it is claimed for the most challenging conditions. It uses H.264 compression with the option to also use MJPEG compression.
The company says that the SNP-6200RH has been developed as a direct result of a market research which identified what users and installers felt were the key requirements for an external PTZ dome to operate in a range of conditions. UPnP (Universal Plug and Play, eight privacy masking zones and bi-directional audio are among features. It provides Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) to detect activity by various means such as face detection, tripwire and enter/exit direction, object appear/disappear, and ‘tampering’ which creates an alert if paint is sprayed on a camera lens or there is unauthorised movement of a camera away from its usual field of view.
Tim Biddulph, IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd, said: “The unique way in which the SNP-6200RH concentrates the IR light strength and beam to match the camera’s optics, ensures optimum illumination and power consumption. There has not been until now a PTZ dome camera available that could offer this level of functionality and the good news is that with the SNP-6200RH having a low price point, it should be affordable for virtually any video surveillance project, regardless of the number of cameras required.”
