The Sony SNC-CH280 Network 1080p HD Bullet Camera with IR Illuminator is a versatile security camera that comes with a CF card slot for on-board recording of surveillance footage. Just insert the SNCA-CFW5 802.11g card into the card slot and use this camera for wireless recording. Thanks to the IP66-rated weatherproof housing, you can use the HD Bullet Camera for uninterrupted surveillance in outdoor as well as indoor locations. Equipped with a built-in heater, the Network HD Bullet Camera delivers optimized performance even in freezing temperatures.Images are captured using a 1/2.8" progressive scan Exmor CMOS sensor at a maximum resolution of up to 1920 x 1440. Built into the camera is a 3.1-8.9mm varifocal lens, which offers an adjustable field of coverage. Built-in IR illuminators help the camera capture clear images in low-light conditions (0 lux) at a distance up to 49’ (15 m).Images can be streamed in H.264, JPEG or MPEG-4 formats, allowing for flexible data management. In addition, dual streaming of these formats is also possible. The Optical Day/Night function automatically switches the camera from color to a sensitive B&W mode when light levels fall and vice versa, thus ensuring optimum image quality 24-hours a day.A host of imaging features ensures that the camera delivers shake and noise-free video in varied lighting conditions. The XDNR (eXcellent Dynamic Noise Reduction) technology minimizes motion blur to capture detailed images under low illumination conditions. View-DR (Visibility Enhanced Wide Dynamic Range) corrects extreme lighting environments marked by high-contrast and harsh backlit scenes. For improved image quality, you can adjust the brightness and color reproduction of the image on a pixel-by-pixel basis.Operating on Sony's DEPA platform, the SNC-CH280 camera offers intelligent motion detection functions including object detection and the ability to set up a virtual borderline. This information is passed on either to the NSR Series recorder or the IMZ-RS400 Series software, where after analysis, a predetermined course of action such as activating an alarm or initiating image recording is triggered. By filtering out irrelevant material, DEPA technology significantly cuts down on network and storage requirements.The SNC-CH280 camera can be powered from the network itself via an Ethernet cable without any extra wiring for auxiliary power outlets. In addition, it can also be powered via 24 VAC or 12 VDC power supply.
