Samsung has introduced a new series of 3 Megapixel network cameras and domes.
The models in the 7002 Professional series, which are upgraded versions of previous high definition megapixel Samsung cameras and domes, include a long list of new innovative features and functions.
All models are able to capture images at a broad range of resolutions from 320 x 180 to 2048 x 1536 and include Full HD 1080p resolution displayed in 16:9 format. An advanced Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) feature ensures that everything in a scene can be clearly seen, even when images contain both very bright and very dark areas, whilst Progressive Scan technology negates motion blur and ensures sharp edges on moving subjects and vehicles.
“The specifications for the new 7002 Professional series take into account the requirements of end-users who want a lot more from a high definition camera other than evidence grade images, and they also reflect the needs of installers,” said Tim Biddulph, IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “A Simple Focus feature, for example, 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. This will obviously result in reduced installation time. However, there is an additional advantage offered by this very clever feature in that when the camera mode changes from colour to monochrome with the help of the camera’s true Day & Night function, the Simple Focus automatically optimizes the back focus required for clear sharp images.”
The 7002 Professional series is supported by many of the leading Video Management Software (VMS platforms as well as Samsung’s Centralised Monitoring Software. Other key features which are common to all models include facial detection and audio detection with the use of an external microphone. Also included is Intelligent Video Analytics which provides Motion Detection, Appear/Disappear, Virtual Line/Enter/Exit detection and a camera tampering alarm function.
The new cameras and domes support multi-streaming of video using either H.264 and MJPEG compression and can therefore be simultaneously used for real-time monitoring, mobile monitoring, high quality or high-efficiency recording, SD memory recording and for E-mail notification purposes.
“With the launch of the 7002 Professional series and our LiteNet range of ‘affordable’ megapixel and HD cameras and domes earlier in the year, we can now truly claim to be able to offer customers a high definition video surveillance solution for virtually any type of project,” said Tim Biddulph. “Customers can also take advantage of the fact that both series are compatible with our recently introduced SRN-1000 network video recorder which has been designed to offer a ‘building block’ approach to the process of specifying a video storage solution.”
The new models in the 7002 Professional series are:
- SNB-7002 box camera with built-in microphone
- SND-7082 dome camera
- SND-7082F flush dome camera
- SNV-7082 vandal resistant dome camera
- SNO-7082R weatherproof IR camera
As is the case with all Samsung professional security products, the 7002 Professional series is supplied with full support services from Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd, including free system design, free technical support and a full three-year warranty.
