Samsung Techwin has launched a new member of its family of open WiseNetIII cameras and domes with the launch of the SNP-6320, the World’s first 2MP Full HD 32 x optical zoom PTZ speed dome.
In addition to its powerful 32 x optical zoom, the ONVIF compliant SNP-6320 is also equipped with a 16 x digital zoom making it an ideal IP network based video surveillance solution for airports, ports, car parks, industrial estates and retail parks, as well as a wide range of other environments where high performance PTZ functionality is
“The SNP-6320, together with the vandal-resistant and weatherproof SNP-6320H, which incorporates a heater that is powered by PoE+ to allow it to operate in extreme weather conditions, represent a significant addition to our extensive range of open platform WiseNetIII 1.3, 2 and 3 megapixel IP network cameras and fixed domes,” said Tim Biddulph, Product Manager for the Security Solution division of Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “Collectively they are enabling Samsung Techwin to change the way you work with IP. One of the key reasons for this is the open platform capabilities of the WiseNetIII DSP chipset which provides users with complete freedom to choose their perfect combination of video analytics and video management software (VMS) to best match their individual requirements.”
The enhanced Wide Dynamic Range built into the WiseNetIII DSP chipset, with performance greater than 120dB, can accurately produce images in scenes that simultaneously contain very bright and very dark areas. The SNP-6320 and SNP-6320H’s other key features include Defog which can improve the clarity of images captured in poor weather conditions such as rain, smoke or fog and Digital Image Stabilization, which negates the effects of vibration. Both are specifically important in the perimeter protection environments such as ports and airports. The models also feature bi-directional audio that allows them to be interfaced with local PA systems. All of these features have been designed to save installation time and cost.
The SNP-6320H and SNP-6320 can capture high quality colour images when the lighting level is as low as 0.03 Lux and have an ultra fast frame rate of 60fps at 1080p allowing the domes to send multiple streams at multiple frame rates and resolutions, depending on the receiving device, e.g. recorder, viewing software or mobile app. This can be particularly beneficial at sites where different stakeholders are involved. Samsung’s WiseNetIII utilisation of bandwidth friendly H.264 compression improves the network control latency of the domes, making the manually tracking of objects simple and straightforward.
A built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC memory slot provides the opportunity for authorised users to remotely access and download video that has been recorded onto a memory card.
The new models are also equipped with Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) which can assist in the detection of 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.
