1080p/30 fps Rapid Dome Camera– E Series


The SNC-ER580 Rapid Dome camera delivers:

  • High quality 1080p Full HD images over a wide area of view with its superb pan, tilt and zoom capabilities
  • High-speed 360 degrees endless rotation


  • Excellent 1080p Full HD picture quality at 30fps

    Gain the huge surveillance benefits of excellent picture quality with 1080p Full HD supporting 30 fps at H.264 giving 1920 x 1080 maximum resolution.

  • High quality and low noise images with Exmor CMOS© sensor
    Derived from Sony’s broadcast range, the high resolution Exmor CMOS sensor improves image acquisition with its low noise characteristics.
  • High-speed 360 degrees endless rotation

    Ideal for mission critical surveillance, the camera’s high-speed 360-degree endless panning capability enables it to cover a wide area quickly in a high degree of detail.

  • Above-the-horizon tilt capability

    The camera’s 15″ tilt-up and total tilt range of 210″ make it ideal for environments such as multi-storey car parks, shopping centres, terminals and other buildings.

  • Powerful 20x optical zoom capability

    20x optical zoom delivers greater flexibility in finding and tracking targets. 12x digital zoom capability provides a total zoom ratio of 240x.

  • Choose the compression format that suits your needs

    This camera supports three compression formats: JPEG is the best choice for high-quality still images

  • Day/Night function for optimised images in all light conditions

    True Day/Night function switches the camera between Day (colour) and Night (B/W) modes, so that in Night mode the camera becomes sensitive to near-IR light and can reproduce images not visible to the naked eye.

  • Wide-D technology optimises images with varied lighting conditions

    Wide-D technology expands the video dynamic range of your camera to improve the visibility of images with high or poor contrast.

  • DEPA for intelligent camera-side analysis

    Sony’s DEPA (Distributed Enhanced Processing Architecture) technology allows the camera to send not only images but also related metadata, including object size and position, to the DEPA-enabled recorder. Unlike conventional analytic systems, where all of the image processing is performed by the recorder, DEPA thereby avoids CPU overload.

  • hPoE for greatly simplified installation

    The camera’s ability to be powered through the same Ethernet cable that it uses for data transfer, through high Power over Ethernet (hPoE – IEEE802.3at), significantly reduces physical infrastructure costs and accelerates deployment.

  • On-board recording for reduced network traffic

    The camera’s SD memory card slot gives you the option to perform on-board recording to reduce network traffic.

  • RealShot Manager Lite for instant performance

    Recording software (RealShot Manager Lite) is bundled with your camera so that you can start recording and monitoring immediately.

  • ONVIF compliance for compatibility and confidence

    The camera conforms to ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) version 1.02, the widely-accepted protocol for information exchange between network video devices, giving you confidence in its breadth and ease of compatibility.
