Samsung’s SNO-5080R Network Bullet Camera

Posted in Bullet Camera Review with tags , , , , on May 17, 2011 by zackduncan

Samsung SNO-5080RSamsung has just released a new bullet camera to the market. The SNO-5080R is a 1.3 megapixel, weatherproof network bullet camera with a built-in varifocal lens and IR LEDs. This nifty little guy is capable of producing HD 720p images in both day and night settings making it perfect for internal and external use.

The SNO-5080R is very easy to install and this can almost be done right out of the box due to the fact that it incorporates all the needed components of an external IP66 rated weatherproof camera including the varifocal lens, sun shield and bracket. The built-in IR LEDs allow the SNO-5080R to capture high definition 720p images during both daylight hours and pitch-black darkness allowing you to place it outside an important building or inside a warehouse for full 24-7 recording.

This camera also features Samsung Techwin’s WiseNet1 DSP chipset in order to deliver a lot of advanced functions such as license-free Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA). This includes an optical tripwire as well as an enter/exit direction detection. Also included is an Appear/Disappear function that detects the movement or theft of objects. IVA also includes a scene tampering function which creates an alert for certain things like the lens being obstructed or unauthorized movement of the camera away from its usual field of view.

The H.264, MPEG4, MJPEG and JPEG compression methods which are incorporated into the camera give you the ability to transmit images to multiple locations simultaneously at differing frame rates and differing resolutions. This allows different, authorized users to simultaneously monitor live images at a single location while recording video surveillance at another location at the same time. All this is also achieved while POE, or Power Over Ethernet, reduces installation costs by providing both power and video/audio through a single connection.

Also featured with the SNO-5080R is Samsung Super Dynamic Range (SSDR) technology. This automatically lightens up dark areas within an image while maintaining the brighter areas at the same level in order to allow operators to view objects that would normally be hidden by shadows. The SNO-5080R also features Samsung Super Noise Reduction (SSNR) in order to eliminate image noise in low light conditions allowing you to save bandwidth and recording space.

According to Senior Product Manager Europe, Samsung Techwin Europe Limited Peter Ainsworth, “The SNO-5080R can be described as a network camera truly suitable for virtually any external application requiring megapixel or high definition image capture. It can be quickly and easily installed, as well as added onto the network without any fuss. What’s more, as well as being extremely price competitive compared to any other comparable camera currently available, the SNO-5080R offers a huge bonus to installers looking to compete for projects involving large numbers of cameras, as they can make substantial saving s by eliminating pre-build and installation costs.”

The Samsung SNO-5080R is now available and comes with full support services from Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. which includes a free system design, free technical support and a full three-year warranty.

Posted in Low Cost, Low Light with tags , , , , , on May 6, 2011 by zackduncan

Supercircuit PC214ZWPH bullet cameraThe new PC214ZWPH and PC214ZWPH2 bullet cameras from Supercircuits are two new professional grade cameras that deliver 540 lines of resolution and are perfect for day/night outdoor and indoor applications.

Both of these cameras give you a very clear picture even when operating in low light conditions. This feat is achieved via the super sensitive Sony Super HAD chipset and integrated IR cut-filter which not only gives you brilliant color in the daytime but also sensitive nighttime performance.

Both cameras also come with an externally adjustable 5-50mm or 2.8-12mm auto-iris lens. This allows you to create an absolutely perfect camera angle quickly and simply. Both cameras also come in an IP67 certified weatherproof housing which makes both cameras perfect for outdoor use no matter what the conditions are.

However, if you need indoor bullet cameras, you will be pleased to know that both the PC214ZWPH and the PC214ZWPH2 are sleek enough for indoor use. Both cameras have a cable management bracket that protects them from any unwanted harassment or tampering.

Key features of the PC214ZWPH and the PC214ZWPH2 include:

  • Built-in digital day/night for improved low light sensitivity and sharper images in low light conditions
  • Externally adjustable 5-50mm (PC214ZWPH) or 2.8-12mm (PC214ZWPH2) auto-iris lens
  • IP67 certified weatherproof housing, making both of these cameras perfect for outdoor use in any weather conditions
  • Dual-Power allowing the cameras to operate on 12V DC to 24V AC

So, if you need a standard indoor/outdoor day/night bullet camera that is able to stand up in tough weather conditions, then you should consider the new PC214ZWPH or the PC214ZWPCH2 bullet cameras from Supercircuits.
