The Sony SNC-ZB550 Network Fixed Camera features IPELA Hybrid — Sony’s IP over-coax-technology — allowing customers 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 environmentally friendly installation. This camera is capable of simultaneously transmitting analog SD and IP HD images over a single coaxial cable.

The SNC-ZB550 offers dual streaming, which can feature any combination of 3 industry-standard compression formats — JPEG, MPEG-4, and H.264 — meaning that the camera uses the optimum compression format for every kind of data. The camera also offers a CS mount lens, 1280 x 1024 maximum HD resolution, as well as the 1/3 type Exmor CMOS sensor for high image quality and low noise

SNC-ZB550 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
  • Easy Focus - allows installer/user to focus the camera remotely or locally
  • True Day/Night function to switch to Day or Night mode depending on the light level
  • 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
