Samsung Techwin introduce a new 20x zoom Full HD dome camera with unique IR LED focussing technology

Samsung Techwin’s new SNP-6200RH Full HD 20x optical zoom IR network dome camera is intended to provide a cost-effective video surveillance solution for challenging environments such as airports, ports and other transport facilities, as well as car parks, open spaces, retail and industrial estates.

The SNP-6200RH PTZ network dome camera is able to capture superb quality Full HD (1920x 1080). Its built-in IR LEDS can illuminate objects at a distance of up to 100m by focusing the beam as the camera zooms, resulting in clear imaging even when the field of view is in total darkness.

The ONVIF conformant SNP-6200RH is equipped with Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology for environments where there may be strong contrasting lighting conditions. It is also weatherproof to IP66 as well as IK10 vandal resistant, and can withstand high temperature variations of -50°C to +55°C, making it an ideal video surveillance solution in even the most challenging environmental conditions. It utilises bandwidth friendly H.264 compression with the option to also use MJPEG compression.

The SNP-6200RH has been developed as a direct result of a market research programme which identified what users and installers felt were the key requirements for a robust external PTZ dome camera that could operate effectively in a wide range of conditions. As a result, it has been equipped with a long list of features to enable the capture of images of the highest quality, and particularly so in low light conditions. UPnP (Universal Plug and Play, eight privacy masking zones and bi-directional audio are just some of the SNP-6200RH’s key features. It also provides Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) to detect activity by various means such as face detection, tripwire and enter/exit direction, object appear/disappear, and ‘tampering’ which creates an alert if paint is sprayed on a camera lens or there is unauthorised movement of a camera away from its usual field of view.

“The unique way in which the SNP-6200RH concentrates the IR light strength and beam to match the camera’s optics, ensures optimum illumination and power consumption,” said Tim Biddulph, IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “There has not been until now a PTZ dome camera available that could offer this level of functionality and the good news is that with the SNP-6200RH having a low price point, it should be  affordable for virtually any video surveillance project, regardless of the number of cameras required.”
