The Sony SNC-DH160 720p HD Vandal-Resistant Indoor Network Minidome Camera is enclosed in an IK10-certified housing designed to protect it from destructive behavior. In addition, thanks to its IP66-rated weatherproof housing, you can use the HD Camera for uninterrupted surveillance in indoor as well as outdoor locations. Equipped with a built-in heater, the Minidome HD Camera delivers optimized performance even in freezing temperatures.Video of the surveillance location is captured using a 1/3" progressive scan CMOS sensor at a maximum resolution of up to 1280 x 1024. The camera’s 3.1 to 8.9mm varifocal lens offers wide coverage of the surveillance area. 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.An Optical Day/Night function automatically switches the camera from color to a sensitive B&W mode when light levels fall, thus ensuring optimum image quality 24-hours a day. Built-in IR illuminators help in capturing clear images in low-light conditions (0 lux) at a distance of up to 49’ (15 m).Operating on Sony's DEPA platform, the SNC-DH160 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. In addition, you can power the camera from the network itself via an Ethernet cable without any extra wiring for auxiliary power outlets.The stream squared function enables concurrent streaming of two 4:3 aspect ratio videos in user-selectable SD resolutions. You can resize the image to SD resolution by selecting the entire image or portion of the image from the original view. With this feature, the security camera can replace 2 SD cameras installed in the same viewing line.Also included in the package is the RealShot Manager Lite recording software with which the camera can be setup quickly for recording and monitoring.
