Market demand for HD products is growing but until now there has not been the breadth of products to provide the means or the motivation to move from analogue to IP. But Sony's innovation in the surveillance space is changing this. Sony maintains its commitment to providing a true hybrid offering and the solutions on display at Stand J10 in Hall 4 will include Sony's hybrid video security technologies. Aiding and bridging the migration to IP, Sony will demonstrate how hybrid technology is enabling more businesses to access benefits of HD without replacing their existing technology infrastructure.
Sony develops its security offerings:
New technology features from Sony will also be a significant focus at IFSEC. Committed to delivering superior image quality, the majority of new HD cameras from Sony have been equipped with Sony's unique View-DR Wide Dynamic Range technology, allowing users to see normally in extreme light conditions. The increased use of sound recording technology in Sony's surveillance solutions is another area of investment and new products with this capability will also be on display.
Sony's security product portfolio is also enhanced through the company's vertical sector expertise and consulting services. The transport sector, in particular rail businesses, has heavily adopted HD security technology. This trend is on the increase and as Sony moves into its new financial year, rail innovation will also be a key highlight of the show.
