Samsung Techwin has further strengthened its product range with the addition of a 360-degree high definition camera.
The SNF-7010 360-degree 3 megapixel camera provides users with the option of selecting from a number of display options including 360-degree fisheye, single and double panorama, quad, rectangle or user selectable region.
“360-degree cameras are increasingly being specified for projects where there is a requirement to monitor activity 24/7 in environments such as banks, offices, retail and warehouses,” said Tim Biddulph, IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “The advantage they offer is that a single 360-degree camera is all that might be needed to efficiently and cost effectively cover a whole area where a much larger number of standard cameras might normally be required to avoid any blind spots. With no moving parts, savings can also be achieved on maintenance costs.”
The ONVIF compliant SNF-7010, which features a digital PTZ, utilises Progressive Scan technology to provide sharp edges on moving subjects and vehicles. It supports up to six streams of videos using either H.264 and MJPEG compression formats, providing the option to simultaneously transmit images to multiple locations at various frame rates. A number of different users, if authorised, are therefore able to monitor live images at one location, record video evidence at another or view live.
A built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC memory slot provides the opportunity for authorised users to remotely access and download video that has been recorded onto a memory card. Other key features include four polygonal motion detection zones, privacy masking, tamper alert and bi-directional audio. When combined with on-board video analytics, the built in microphone provides an audio detection capability.
