| Samsung SNV-5010 network dome cameras have been approved by the European railway industry
The Samsung SNV-5010 vandal resistant network dome camera has been approved for use by the European railway industry. Tests carried out by two separate testing houses, which included the ability to withstand extreme vibrations, has resulted in certificates being issued which verify that the SNV-5010 vandal resistant network dome camera is robustly able to operate effectively within the demanding conditions of railway trains and stations.
TUV SUD of Germany carried out testing of the SNV-5010 to ensure it was suitable for use at railway stations by complying with the EN-50121 standard, whilst SGS Korea Co Ltd. in a separate test was able to issue a certificate of compliance with EN-50155 standard confirming the SNV-5010's ability to cope with the rigorous conditions on board trains.
"This is an important landmark for Samsung as very few cameras have been able to meet the required standards of the European railway industry and in particular prove they have the capability to reliably operate on board moving trains," said Peter Ainsworth, Senior Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. "The SNV-5010 is an excellent example of our ability to provide railway companies and organisations with robust and reliable video surveillance solutions which, although keenly priced, are packed full of technically advanced features offering tangible benefits to railway and trained operators."
The SNV-5010 joins a long list of Samsung professional security products, which have been tested and certificated to the EN-50121 standard. The vandal resistant and fully weatherproofed 1.3 Megapixel Samsung SNV-5010 dome camera measures just 100 x 115 x 42mm and is designed specifically for environments where there may be limited space. It utilises progressive scan technology to capture sharp, high-quality video of moving subjects and features licence-free Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) which has an optical tripwire and enter/exit direction detection capability, as well as an Appear/Disappear function to detect the movement of objects. IVA also has a scene change tampering function, which creates an alert if, for example, paint is sprayed on a camera lens or there is unauthorised movement of a camera away from its usual field of view.
