Samsung SNO-7080RSamsung Techwin America has just unveiled an outdoor 3 megapixel network video surveillance camera complete with a 30 meter IR range in total darkness. The camera is labeled as the SNO-7080R and comes with a 2.8x varifocal motorized zoom lens and is capable of capturing 16:9 full 1920 x 1080p HD with wide dynamic range and features a dual H.264 and MPEG codec.

According to Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Samsung Techwin America, “Our new outdoor megapixel IR camera offers a unique combination of performance, features and cost-efficiency to deliver extremely high value. The low light IR capability of the SNO-7080R greatly extends the applications for megapixel imaging given its extended range in total darkness.”

In addition to that, this camera also uses Samsung’s WiseNet2 DSP chipset, which is designed to provide maximum benefit for megapixel technology. This includes Wide Dynamic Range and Smart Compression with region-of-interest (ROI) encoding. H.264 compression also ensures that your images are high-res and work well with your bandwidth while the H.264/MJPEG dual codec supplies multiple streaming.

The SNO-7080R also offers multiple resolution options including CIF, full 1080p HD and full 3 megapixel with the ability to transmit as many as six different profiles for viewing and recording. The camera also has an IP66 environmentally rated housing for severe weather conditions and can be powered with an Ethernet cable and 24V AC.

This camera is also ONVIF-compliant and features backlight compensation, SSNRIII (2D+3D) digital noise reduction, motion detection, privacy, SSDR for contrast enhancement and auto day/night (ICR). The 3-8.5 millimeter motorized varifocal lens also allows remotely adjustable zoom and focus settings for a fully customizable setup.

Y-Cam’s Bullet HD

Posted in Bullet Camera Review, Low Light with tags , , , , , on December 23, 2011 by zackduncan

Y-Cam's Bullet HDY-Cam has just unveiled its newest product, the Bullet HD, a high-definition bullet camera that allows you to have HD video and image capabilities in outdoor surveillance situations. In addition to that, the Bullet HD is Y-Cam’s first 720p IP camera and while it is basically the same on the outside as the standard model, the Bullet HD is 200mm long and its length increases to 250mm with the added 802.11n AP wireless aerial.

The Bullet HD has received an IP66 rating which means that it is capable of withstanding dust, high winds and high water pressures, making it perfect for any outdoor surveillance job. All cables for the Bullet HD are routed through a sealed cover and a 980mm waterproof sheath, providing PoE and an I/O block for added external devices like alarms.

In addition to the HD resolution, this device comes with a bigger 1/3″ CMOS and H.264 support with all the same features as Y-Cam’s standard camera. Night vision capabilities are aided by 12 IR emitters around the lens which also help with motion detection. The Bullet HD also comes with a microSD card slot for added recording and memory.

It goes without saying that the image quality of the Bullet HD is far superior to that of the standard bullet camera though it is worth noting that the Bullet HD also has superior color balance and contrast. Unfortunately, the focus is a little off but is perfectly suitable for facial recognition as far as 16+ feet away. One more thing to note is that the Bullet HD does have problems handling bright light sources, especially sunlight.

The camera switches over to a mono mode as light decreases and then to full IR in pitch black. The camera is capable of illuminating objects as far away as 50 feet though detail beyond 16 feet tends to blur. There is also some vertical smearing as well when viewing the camera feed in real time.

As far as IP66 rated IP cameras go, the Bullet HD isn’t bad. It does come with a ton of useful features, like H.264 support, though it may leave some hardcore camera users wanting more. If you are looking for a run-of-the-mill HD bullet camera, however, the Bullet HD from Y-Cam may be just what you are looking for.
