Outdoor IR Ruggedized 1080p/60 fps Camera Powered by IPELA ENGINE EX™– V Series


Tough, round-the-clock surveillance with excellent Full HD picture quality, IR illumination and high frame rates.

This ruggedized minidome camera delivers Full HD quality video images around the clock in tough environments – indoors or outside in harsh weather.

The vandal- and weather-resistant SNC-VM632R is ideal for a wide range of demanding security, surveillance and monitoring applications, from banks, factories, shopping malls and offices to airports, car parks and transportation systems.

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 follow exactly what’s happening in front of the camera.

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

This ‘single box’ solution also includes built-in IR (infrared) illumination, allowing viewing of objects up to 30m from the camera in complete darkness.

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.

Capable of operating in temperatures from -40C to +60C, the totally sealed minidome unit assures dependable operation in challenging indoor and outdoor environments. For even greater resilience, IK10-rated vandal resistance is teamed with an IP66 rating for waterproof/dust resistance.


  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Always ready for action, even in the dark

    Built-in IR (infrared) illuminators give a clear view in complete darkness (0 lx) of objects at a distance of up to 30m (50 IRE) from the camera. Using View DR and high quality IR, images can be captured without overexposure.

  • Better pictures, day or night

    True D/N (Day/Night) function automatically switches the camera to Day or Night mode, depending on ambient light levels.

  • 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.

  • Steadier, more stable images

    Mechanical vibration – caused by gusts of wind or a busy road bridge – can cause blurred, hard to see images. The in-built image stabiliser reduces the effects of camera shake for crisper, clearer images.

  • Optimum picture quality in any situation

    A choice of selectable picture modes optimises camera settings for best picture quality in a wide range of applications and lighting environments.

  • Automatic recording to memory card

    Edge Storage automatically records video and audio directly to an optional micro SD/SDHC card for later analysis. Recording can be triggered manually, or automatically 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.

  • 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.

  • Built to effortlessly handle tough conditions

    The camera’s vandal-resistant design meets IK10 standards (protection against mechanical impact). IP66-rated waterproof and dust-tight, the camera is ideal for outdoor surveillance, as well as damp or humid indoor environments where water ingress may be encountered.

  • 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.

  • Quick, easy installation

    Quick, easy adjustment of focus and zoom settings simplifies installation while reducing maintenance time. Configuration of network settings is made simple with the supplied SNC Easy IP Setup Guide 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.
