|The cameras support wide dynamic range (WDR) in 2-megapixel mode|
Samsung Techwin America, a global supplier of video surveillance and security products combining superior performance and value, featured its recently released 7000 Series Megapixel Cameras at this week's ASIS Conference and Trade Show. Meeting market demand for breakthrough imaging technology, the 7000 Series Megapixel Cameras feature Samsung's advanced WiseNetII digital signal processing, full HD resolution, up to 3 megapixels of image quality, wide dynamic range (WDR) and on-board video analytics.
"The 7000 Series is designed with the full gamut of Samsung's leading edge imaging technology and seamlessly provides a top of the line solution for networked or hybrid video surveillance systems," said Frank DeFina, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Samsung Techwin America. "Samsung core technology innovations enable us to continue our rapid expansion in the marketplace and deliver on our vision of providing high performance products with capabilities that push the boundaries of traditional video surveillance."
The powerhouse 7000 Series 3-megapixel full HD network cameras on display are the SNB-7000 Box Camera, the SND-7080 Indoor All-in-One Dome Camera, the SND-7080F Indoor All-in-One Flush Mount Dome Camera and the SNV-7080 Outdoor Vandal- Resistant All-in-One Dome Camera.
All of the cameras offer 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution, H.264/MJPEG dual codec, 16:9 full HD (1080p) resolution support, smart compression (region-of-interest encoding) and true day/night (ICR) functionality. Additional features include bi-directional audio, SD Memory Card slot and built-in intelligent video analytics. The cameras support wide dynamic range (WDR) in 2-megapixel mode and SSNRIII noise reduction helps to ensure crisp clear images even in low light environments. Hybrid installations are supported with BNC outputs and RS-485 inputs and they are PoE (Power over Ethernet) compatible. Focus and zoom are network adjustable.
The box camera features a C/CS lens mount while the dome camera versions feature a 3˜8.5mm (2.8X) motorised vari-focal lens with a horizontal viewing angle of 100° (wide) and 35.3° (tele)and a vertical viewing angle of 74.6° (wide) and 26° (tele). The outdoor dome is enclosed in an IP 66-rated vandal-resistant housing with a built-in heater (to -40° C).
The Samsung 7000 Series cameras are ONVIF compliant and include the following advanced technologies:
- WiseNetII Digital Signal Processing to allow display of multiple resolutions from CIF (320 x 240) through to 16:9 format, full HD (1080p) and up to 3 megapixel (2048 x1536) resolution.
- Wide Dynamic Range compensates for uneven lighting conditions by increasing the level of visible detail in the dark areas while maintaining image clarity and detail in the brighter portions of the image.
- Samsung Super Noise Reduction III technology removes noise and greatly reduces motion blur in low light.
- Smart Codec captures predefined Region of Interest (RoI) or human faces in greater detail than the remaining scene, producing lower data sizes for maximised bandwidth and storage efficiencies.
