Sony introduced new line of mini dome security cameras at Security Essen 2010

Sony Professional announced new additions to its X series security camera range, further enhancing its powerful line-up of solutions. At Security Essen 2010 Sony Professional showcased five new models from its X series of cameras, as well as its new Plug and Play NSR-S20 recording solution for X series cameras.The latest additions to the X series camera range are compact in size but boast excellent full HD and HD picture quality by incorporating Sony's Advanced Distributed Enhanced Processing Architecture (DEPA). New models include a fixed camera, the SNC-CH110; two mini dome cameras, the SNC-DH110 and SNC-DH210; and two impact-resistant mini dome cameras, the SNC-DH110T and SNC-DH210T.X series cameras are some of the world's smallest HD cameras, allowing them to be fitted into the smallest of spaces for discrete use. The cameras' ultra compact size and a compelling price point are attained with no compromise on the power or performance available. Moreover, the cameras are extremely energy-efficient; consuming an estimated 75% less energy than a conventional 11.2w full HD fixed box camera. An innovative design for quick installation, variety of colours including silver, black or white, and full HD quality means that the new cameras are particularly suited to use in retail applications. The innovative Stream Squared function of the X series in particular allows simultaneous streaming of two 4:3 aspect ratio videos in user-selectable SD resolutions. An entire image or a part of an image can be selected from the original view and resized to SD resolution. This means it can stream a wide-angle view and a close-up shot at the same time. It is perfect for keeping a close eye on high-risk spots while keeping the wider picture in sight simultaneously. With this feature, the 720p X series cameras can replace two SD cameras installed in the same line of view - saving on costs. Bruno Winnen, Head of Video Security, Sony Professional commented: "HD remains a key focus for Sony and Security Essen 2010 is the ideal platform to demonstrate Sony's understanding of the security market and the needs of our customers. The latest line up of cameras creates easy migration to IP and the Plug and Play NSR offers a versatile and reliable recording solution. The full HD family of cameras across the X series combine cost-effective, entry level cameras with fixed and mini dome versions to create a truly innovative portfolio."   See images with captions
