With its high quality megapixel resolution and pixilation-free 30x optical zoom capability, Samsung Techwin America’s new SNP-5300H 1.3 Megapixel IP PTZ dome camera captures extremely accurate images at a great price point. The SNP-5300H builds upon Samsung’s reputation for delivering high performance video surveillance solutions with added value.
“The combination of 1.3 megapixel resolution and 30x optical zoom has been a widely sought after solution, but expensive for mainstream applications,” said Frank De Fina, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Samsung Techwin America. “Our new 1.3 Megapixel with a 30x optical lens fulfills the market’s demand for high performance and quality at a very competitive price point.”
Another key feature incorporated into the SNP-5300 is PoE (Power over Ethernet) to power all of the dome’s features as well as its built-in heater and fan which enables operation in extreme temperature ranges (This built-in heater is only relevant for the SNP-5300H). The new SNP-5300H also features an IP66 rated external housing for challenging outdoor/indoor environments.
With a true Day/Night capability and Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology which makes it ideal for locations with high contrast lighting conditions, Samsung’s SNP-5300H is highly effective for video surveillance applications such as airports, ports and other transport facilities, as well as retail and corporate/industrial campuses.
Utilising H.264 and MJPEG compression, the SNP-5300H provides the option to simultaneously transmit images to multiple locations at various frame rates and at different resolutions. Up to 10 different users can monitor live images simultaneously on a PC, smartphone or tablet via Samsung’s license-free NET-i viewer software. JPEG images can be simultaneously attached to alarm email notifications. An internal SD memory card also provides the capability to store pre and post-alarm images.
A multi-language on-screen display makes it easy for users to configure the SNP-5300/5300H’s extensive list of features. These include four programmable Motion Detection zones, 12 programmable Privacy Zones, bi-directional audio support and Progressive Scan technology which negates motion blur and ensures sharp edges on moving subjects and vehicles.
The built-in license-free Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) includes virtual line and enter/exit direction detection, as well as an Appear/Disappear function to detect the movement of objects. It also includes face detection and audio detection, and even 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.
The SNP-5300/5300H is available with an extensive range of accessories and brackets to provide a choice of wall, pole, parapet, pendant, corner and ceiling mounts.
