Sony adds four new surveillance cameras to its series of analogue camera systems

Product Profile

Sony Electronics continues to extend capabilities and value for analogue camera systems with the addition of four new cameras with pacesetting imaging capabilities with increased resolution and dynamic range.

The SSC-FM530 and SSC-FM560 Series mini dome cameras alongside the SSC-FB530 and SSCFB560 fixed type CS mount cameras feature DynaViewSX dynamic range enhancement technology and excellent horizontal resolution of 700 lines. Together, these advanced analogue cameras produce superb image detail under a wide range of lighting conditions.

"The arrival of 700 TVL imaging along with DynaViewSX dynamic range enhancement technology in these minidome and fixed-type cameras are the next major advance producing significant performance upgrades for analogue  installations," said Mark Collett, General Manager, Sony Security Systems Division. "Our investments in improving analogue technology continue to show real benefits for those with applications that excel with analogue, or for those extending the life and value of their legacy analogue installations."

DynaViewSX Unveils Details in Challenging Conditions

In addition to 700 TVL resolution, these additions to the Sony analogue security camera line up include the latest generation of dynamic range enhancement for analogue designed to deliver the kinds of quality improvements that matter most in real-world security use. DynaViewSX delivers numerous image enhancement techniques that address challenging scenarios, including piercing the glare from extreme backlighting.

Other features of these cameras include Adaptive Tone Reproduction (ATR) and Intelligent Backlight Compensation (iBLC). ATR improves the contrast of subjects in areas where bright and dim areas are captured in the same frame. Uncorrected, the resulting over and/or underexposure hampers visibility of objects. With ATR, the quality of the image across the entire field is improved by adding the optimum gradation compensation based on different luminance information.

Likewise, iBLC creates major imaging improvements by utilising a histogram algorithm to recognise the backlit area and analyse the luminance level. This allows for a highly accurate compensation of exposure levels in what is a major advance over conventional backlight compensation strategies.

SSC-FM530and SSC-FM560Series Domes: Big Capabilities Reveal Small Details

The SSC-FM530and SSC-FM560Series dome cameras are engineered to combine high sensitivity with low power consumption and share 3x Vari-Focal lenses. The SSC-FM530 has an electrical Day/Night capability while the SSC-FM560 has true D/N capabilities. These are all also available in PAL versions.

The SSC-FB530 and SSC-FB560 Series Fixed-type Cameras: Sharper, Cleaner Images

The SSC-FB530 and SSC-FB560 cameras include the technological achievements of the new dome cameras, but are a CS mount, fixed type design (lenses are not included). This allows for flexibility on lens choices depending on the field of view requirements.
