SNC-VB635

Box-type 1080p/60 fps Camera with Half-inch Exmor™ CMOS Sensor Powered by IPELA ENGINE EX™ – V Series

Overview

Highly sensitive box camera with the half-inch Exmor CMOS sensor powered by IPELA ENGINE EX, with Full HD image quality, advanced analytics and high frame rate recording.

The SNC-VB635 is a high performance versatile fixed network camera that’s ideal for a wide range of security and surveillance applications – from city centres, airports, traffic and transport systems to government and utilities.

This high-sensitivity box camera design is supplied without a lens, giving the freedom to select from a wide range of lenses to suit virtually any surveillance needs.

Full HD picture quality is assured by the sensitive, high-resolution Exmor™ CMOS sensor that’s teamed with Sony’s latest-generation IPELA ENGINE EX signal processing system. Every scene looks clearer, sharper and more detailed – even in challenging low-light conditions or with harsh backlighting where other cameras struggle. Extra intelligence is added by DEPA Advanced Intelligent Video Analytics that can intelligently trigger an alarm based on user-defined rules.

High frame rate recording captures fast-moving action at a smooth 60 frames per second, making it easier to review and analyse footage with split-second accuracy.

On-board image stabilisation helps keep images crisp, clear and immune from mechanical vibration, even if the camera’s buffeted by wind on an outdoor pole or overlooking a busy motorway.

PoE (Power over Ethernet) capability carries IP video and power over a single connection cable, while easy focus and zoom adjustment further reduces installation time and maintenance costs.

The SNC-VB635 is supplied without lens. Compatible lenses include :

– DV3.4×3.85A-SA1, DV10x8SR4A-SA1, and DV3.8x4SR4A-SA1 from Fujinon

– M12VG412 from Tamron

– HG5Z2518FC-MP and H3Z4518CS-MPIR from Computar

Features

  • See every detail with Full HD quality

    The camera’s sensitive, high-resolution Exmor CMOS sensor captures crisp, detail-packed Full HD (1920 x 1080) video images with a high frame rate (up to 60fps).

  • Latest generation imaging power

    Class-leading imaging is assured by Sony’s unique IPELA ENGINE EX signal processing platform. XDNR (Excellent Dynamic Noise Reduction) assures clear low-light images, while Visibility Enhancer (VE) dynamically optimises brightness and colour reproduction on a pixel-by-pixel basis. Extra intelligence is added by DEPA Advanced analytics with face detection that can trigger alarms based on user-determined rules.

  • Recording quality to suit your network

    Select CBR (constant bitrate), VBR (variable bitrate) or VBR-with-cap compression modes for optimised recording quality depending on IP network conditions.

  • Edge storage onto memory card

    Video can be automatically recorded onto an optional SD memory card up to 64 GB in the camera, in response to an alarm trigger or if a network connection is temporarily unavailable.

  • Exceptional low-light sensitivity

    The camera is capable of capturing clear images in extremely low light conditions: minimum illumination of 0.04 lx in Colour mode and 0.03 lx in B/W mode (at 50 IRE and 30 fps).

  • Wide dynamic range

    Innovative View-DR technology achieves a dynamic range equivalent to 90 dB, capturing objects clearly and adaptively – even with harsh backlighting or sun-drenched highlights.

  • Better pictures, day or night

    True D/N (Day/Night) function automatically switches the camera between Day (colour) and Night (B/W) modes, depending on light levels. In Night mode, the IR-cut filter is removed, making the camera sensitive to near-IR light and capable of reproducing images not visible to the naked eye.

  • Capture smooth, fluid movement

    Video images can be captured at a high frame rate of 60 fps: ideal for applications like casinos or banks where it’s essential to see what’s happening with split-second accuracy.

  • Flexible powering options with PoE

    The camera can be powered by AC 24V or DC 12V to suit a wide range of installation requirements. In addition, support for Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af/IEEE 802.3at-compliant (PoE/PoE+)) simplifies installation by eliminating the need for additional power cables.

  • Recording quality to suit your network

    Select CBR (constant bitrate), VBR (variable bitrate) or VBR-with-cap compression modes for optimised recording quality depending on IP network conditions.

  • Automatic recording to memory card

    Edge Storage allows automatic recording of video and audio directly to an optional micro SD/SDHC card for later analysis. Recording can be triggered in response to an alarm event, if there’s an attempt to tamper with the camera or in the event of network connection being temporarily lost.

  • View with your smartphone

    Securely access the camera using a smartphone or tablet (Android or iOS) to view images.

  • Easy setup and IP network configuration

    The Easy Focus feature provides quick, easy adjustment of focus, simplifying installation and reducing maintenance time. Easy Focus can be activated remotely, minimising the need for on-site periodic maintenance, and ensuring excellent images. Configuration of network settings is made simple with the supplied SNC Easy IP Setup application.

  • ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) compliance

    Support for ONVIF Profile-S simplifies integration with a wide range of VMS platforms and hardware, providing video streaming and camera control. ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) defines a common protocol for the exchange of information between network video devices, including automatic device discovery and video streaming.

  • RS-485 interface

    The RS-485 interface can transparently control camera peripherals such as powered zoom lenses and camera pedestals with pan and tilt functionalities; the camera converts control commands sent over the network to serial data and transfers this to devices via an RS-485 interface for easy and convenient operations
