Samsung’s new WiseNetIII 2MP Full HD (1080P) network camera range on show at IFSEC 2013

Product Profile

The eight new WiseNetIII camera models have been developed by Samsung as a result of a market research programme which identified what users and installers felt were the key ‘must haves’ in order for high definition IP network cameras to automatically become the preferred choice when a new video surveillance system was being specified, or an existing system was being upgraded.

“Price is always an important consideration and it was also not a surprise to learn that customers wanted to see further improvements in image quality particularly in low light conditions,” said Tim Biddulph, IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “Also high up on the wish list was smarter utilisation of network bandwidth and the need for cameras to be more installer friendly by making them easier to install and configure.”

Samsung’s response to the feedback from its existing and potential customers has been to pack the new models, with a long list of new technically advanced features, many of which ensure that superb quality images can be captured and recorded regardless of the lighting or environmental conditions. 

The new Full HD cameras and domes can capture high quality images when the lighting level is as low as 0.01 Lux, and have an ultra fast frame rate of 60fps at 1080p which results in latency free clear images. The enhanced Wide Dynamic Range built into the WiseNetIII DSP chipset, with performance greater than 100dB, can accurately produce images in scenes that simultaneously contain very bright and very dark areas. P-iris technology optimises the iris when multiple lighting conditions exist within a single field of view to create images with better clarity and depth of field.  A Defog feature can be used to help improve the clarity of images captured in poor weather conditions such as rain or fog, whilst Digital Image Stabilization (DIS), previously only seen in analogue chipsets, negates the effects of a camera shaking due to high winds or building vibration.

A Simple Focus feature, which is built into most of the models, automatically focuses the camera. All that is needed is one simple push of a button on the back of the camera to achieve optical focus.

Collectively the eight new models are designed to offer a solution for every possible type of application. Samsung’s stand at IFSEC will be divided into various vertical market zones, such as retail, education, commercial and transportation, to allow visitors to identify the best combination of WiseNetIII cameras and domes to meet the requirements of specific projects. “Within each zone we will be able to demonstrate the key features of a specific camera model or recording device and how it can best help provide the solution to monitor what may be a range of activities within that market sector,” said Peter Ainsworth, Senior Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “In retail, for example, there are many different reasons why a video surveillance system may be deployed such as the need to deter and detect shop theft, ensure health & safety compliance and record activity in car parks, delivery bays and at the point of sale.”

The eight new WiseNetIII models are:

  • SNB-6004 - Bodied camera with Simple Focus, P-Iris & day/ night operation.
  • SNB-6003 - Bodied camera with P-Iris & colour/ mono operation.
