Sony is pleased to introduce the SNC-DH180, a powerful new addition to its network HD camera lineup. This vandal-resistant, wide dynamic range camera is designed with a built-in infrared (IR) illuminator. As a dual-stream network camera, it supports H.264, MPEG-4, and JPEG compression formats, and delivers excellent picture quality in HD 720p resolution at 30 frames per second (fps). Incorporating the new Exmor™ CMOS image sensor from Sony, which is specially designed for surveillance applications, this rugged camera features Sony’s latest image-enhancement technology, View-DR, which demonstrates an extremely wide dynamic range.

The SNC-DH180 also features an IR illuminator to deliver quality images even in absolute darkness (0 lx). Along with a host of superb features such as DEPA™ Advanced, PoE, a built-in heater, and the Easy Focus/Easy Zoom function, the SNC-DH180 minidome network camera is ideal for the most demanding surveillance applications.

SNC-DH180 features include:

  • Superior 720p HD picture quality, supporting H.264 at 30 fps
  • Maximum reoslution 1280 x 1024
  • The new Exmor CMOS sensor achieves high image quality and high sensitivity
  • Clearly see objects in the dark up to 15 m (49 feet) away with IR Illuminators
  • Superb dynamic range using newly developed View-DR (Visibility enhanced wide Dynamic Range) technology
  • The Visibility Enhancer optimizes contrast and makes the subject more visible, even in severe backlight or shadow conditions
  • XDNR (eXcellent Dynamic Noise Reduction) technology for clear images without motion blur under low illumination
  • Easy Focus function/Easy Zoom function
