The Sony SNC-ZR550 Network Rapid Dome Camera features IPELA Hybrid — Sony’s IP over-coax technology — allowing you to migrate easily to HD IP video surveillance systems, utilizing existing analog infrastructure, such as cables, power supplies, switchers, controllers, and monitors, thus minimizing investment in new infrastructure. IPELA Hybrid offers a cost-effective and environment-friendly installation. Moreover, this camera is capable of simultaneously transmitting analog SD and IP HD images over a single coaxial cable.

The SNC-ZR550 offers dual Streaming, which can feature any combination of 3 industry-standard compression formats — JPEG, MPEG-4 and H.264 — therefore, the camera uses the optimum compression format for every kind of data. The camera also offers an auto-focus zoom lens, 360° endless rotation, 1280 x 720 maximum HD resolution, as well as the 1/4" type Exmor CMOS sensor for high image quality and low noise.

SNC-ZR550 features include:

  • "Simultaneous transmission of IP HD video and analog SD video
  • Maximum cable length of 1,000 feet (300 m) with an RG-59 coaxial cable
  • The Exmor™ CMOS sensor delivers high quality images with low noise
  • 28x optical and total zoom ratio of 336x with 12x digital zoom
  • Above-the-horizon tilt — 15°tilt-up, total tilt range of 210° (-105º to +105º)
  • DynaView™ — Wide-D technology to capture high-contrast scenes and produce clear images even under challenging lighting conditions
  • True Day/Night function to switch to Day or Night mode depending on the light level
  • Powered by HPoE for simple installation
  • SD memory card slot for an on-board recording capability
  • Smartphone viewer for accessing the camera from a smartphone
  • DEPA™ Intelligent Video analytics enables cameras to send not only video images, but related metadata, including object data (size and position) to the DEPA-enabled recorder. Since part of the image processing is done on the camera side, the load to the recorder can be reduced enabling camera expansion
  • ONVIF™ (Open Network Video Interface Forum) Version 1.02 software that ensures greater interoperability and more flexibility in building multiple-vendor systems"
