Sony Network Camera
www.sonybiz.net/networkvideo
To meet the growing demand for high quality,
affordable remote monitoring systems,
Sony has introduced a new addition to its
line-up of Network Cameras – the SNC-P5.
Incorporating a built-in web server and a
network interface this camera allows users
to control cameras and monitor images
from a networked PC running a standard
web browser, with no need for any additional software. Supporting both JPEG
and MPEG-4 compression formats, the
camera provides high-quality still images
and smooth moving images, even when
bandwidth is limited, responding to your
application demands and network environment. The camera's pan/tilt feature offers
wide area coverage, providing efficient
monitoring with a single unit.
What's more, the SNC-P5 incorporates an
optical zoom lens, enabling users to monitor small or distant objects with exceptional
clarity.
The SNC-P5 is packed with convenient
features such as a built-in Compact Flash™
(CF) Type card slot, wireless capability*1,
audio monitoring, and alarm functions.
Boasting a compact and unique body, the
SNC-P5 is an ideal choice for monitoring
applications both indoors and outdoors,*2
providing remote video and audio monitoring, webcasting and more.
*1 The optional SNCA-CFW1 Wireless Card is required.
*2 The optional SNCA-HP5 Housing Kit is required for use in an outdoor environment.
Stunning video and audio brought to you by “IPELA” fashions the novel reality
for the modern business person. Sharing ideas and dreams as if you are
collocated when your counterpart is half-way around the world, experiencing
images as if you are actually there, this is “IPELA”. Real audiovisual
communication over networks – this is business communication of the future,
brought to you today. This is “IPELA”.
The SNC-P5 represents a cost-effective solution for a broad range of remote monitoring
applications – combining state-of-the art technology, great functionality and sleek design
in one powerful plug & play package.
MPEG-4 PAN TILT ZOOM NETWORK CAMERA
■ Wide Area Coverage with a Single Unit
■ Monitor Small or Distant Objects with Exceptional Clarity
■ Built in Web-Server Allows Viewing and Control from a
Standard Web Browser
■ All-In-One Network
Camera
Features
■ Network Features
The SNC-P5 includes a built-in web server
and a 100Base- TX/10Base-T network interface, allowing users to configure the unit
in any TCP/IP network. Just connect the
cameras to a network and access the
images from a remote location on a PC running a standard web browser. No additional
software is required.
■ Pan/Tilt/Zoom Capability
The SNC-P5 is pan/tilt-capable with a pan
range of 120 degrees and a tilt range of
75 degrees allowing users to monitor a relatively wide viewing area with a single camera.
What's more, the SNC-P5 employs a 3x
optical zoom lens, enabling users to zoom in
on small or distant objects with clarity.
■ Selectable MPEG-4 or
JPEG Compression
The SNC-P5 supports both MPEG-4 and
JPEG compression formats. The high-compression ratio of MPEG-4 provides smooth
moving images over networks, even when
bandwidth is limited. If higher quality still
images are preferred, then the industry standard JPEG compression format is
selectable. The SNC-P5 also supports variable bit rates up to 2Mbps. The image size
can be selected from six modes to meet your
network environment and application
requirements.
Image size: 640 x 480 ; 480 x 360 ;
384 x 288 ; 320 x 240 ; 256 x 192 ;
160 x 120.
Viewer
■ High Frame Rate
The SNC-P5 produces images at a maximum frame rate of 30fps3, when the image
size is 320 x 240 in both MPEG-4 and JPEG
modes, providing clear and smooth moving
images. The frame rate can be fixed, or set to
a variable rate that automatically adjusts to
the available bandwidth.
*3 In order to view images at the maximum frame rate,
adequate PC processing power and network bandwidth
are required.
■ Audio Monitoring
Incorporating a built-in microphone and an
external microphone input, the SNC-P5
allows for audio as well as video monitoring.
The use of an external microphone greatly
enhances the ability to pickup the desired
sound from the preferred location. The unit is
also equipped with a speaker output,
enabling users to send an alert or make an
announcement, significantly expanding the
possibilities for remote monitoring applications.
3 x Optical Zoom (simulated images)
ADAPTIVE RATE CONTROL
In order to control QoS (Quality of Service)
levels over a network, the SNC-P5 employs
an adaptive rate control function. This automatically varies the video bit-transfer rate to
meet changing network conditions and
selects the most appropriate frame rates,
preventing audio and video breakup.
SIMULTANEOUS ACCESS
Up to 20 users in JPEG mode (10 users in
MPEG-4 mode) can simultaneously access
the SNC-P5 and monitor images separately.
MULTICASTING
The SNC-P5 has a built-in multicasting capability. When configured with a multicast
router, the unit can efficiently stream video
and audio to a large number of users.
■ Network Security Features
IP FILTERING
With IP filtering, access to the SNC-P5 can
be restricted to one or more groups of selected users. Up to ten different groups can be
established by defining an IP address range
for each group.
PASSWORD PROTECTION
User names and passwords can be assigned
to allow four levels of access. The administrator has complete access/control of the
cameras. The other three levels of access can
be set to limit user privileges to functions
such as PTZ control, viewing, and trigger
control.
■ Compact Flash (CF)
Type Card Slot/Wireless
Capability
A built-in expansion slot for CF cards is integrated into the SNC-P5, enabling you to
store additional images on CF media as
required. In addition, the SNC-P5 supports
the SNCA-CFW1 Wireless Card, which is
IEEE 802.11b compliant; just insert the card
into the slot and the camera can be configured in a wireless network.
■ Flexible Installation
The SNC-P5 provides flexible installation to
meet your specific application needs, it can
be wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted, or placed
on a desktop using the supplied camera
stand.
What's more, with the optional SNCA-HP5
Housing Kit, the SNC-P5 can be used in an
outdoor environment, expanding your monitoring applications.

■ Alarm Functions
4
MOTION DETECTION* /ALARM TRIGGER
The SNC-P5 is equipped with a built-in
motion detection function that can generate
an alarm through its alarm-output port,
or trigger another device to perform a variety
of actions.
The motion-detection function uses vector
information so that unwanted noise components do not accidentally trigger the alarm.
In addition to these features, the SNC-P5 is
equipped with a sensor-input port that can
receive a trigger from an external sensor.
*4 Motion detection function can be used when a
monitoring image is set to a MPEG-4.
PRE-/POST-ALARM IMAGE STORAGE
With its built-in buffer memory, the SNC-P5
can store several seconds of pre-alarm and
post-alarm images when the motion detector, the sensor input, or both trigger an alarm.
IMAGE TRANSFER USING FTP/SMTP*5
All of the pre-/post-alarm images stored
at the time of an alarm event can be transferred to an FTP server for later viewing.
Furthermore, a still image at the time of an
alarm event can be sent to a designated
e-mail address.
*5 All transferred images are in JPEG format. MPEG
images are converted to JPEG before being transferred.
■ Analogue Composite
Video Output
The SNC-P5 can output an analogue
composite video signal via the BNC connector. This feature is ideal for sending signals to
a local recording device or monitor.
■ User-Friendly Controls
Camera settings, controls, and monitoring
can be easily accomplished with a userfriendly graphical user interface (GUI) on the
PC monitor.
