Intelligent Network Camera with
DynaView and 432x zoom- Black
High-Performance Network Camera With 360
Degree Endless Rotation
The SNC-RX570 is our flagship Network Camera with
several advanced features. For example, it is particularly
suited for use in high-contrast environments thanks to
Sony’s DynaView technology, which helps to reproduce
clear and accurate images no matter what the lighting
conditions. It also features a new digital signal processing
(DSP) unit for enhanced picture quality and has an amazing 36x optical zoom, providing a maximum 432x zoom
when combined with the 12x digital zoom.
All SNC-RX Series Network Dome Cameras feature builtin Intelligent Object Detection and Intelligent Motion
Detection. They can also freely and endlessly rotate 360
degrees, allowing users to monitor the area surrounding
the camera without interruption.
Advanced image processing technology offers a choice of
three compression formats - JPEG, MPEG-4, and H.264 so that users can choose the appropriate format to match
their network environment and monitoring applications. A
newly-developed "Dual Encoding Capability" also allows
simultaneous streaming in JPEG and MPEG-4, further improving workflow flexibility.
Designed for 24/7 operation, the SNC-RX Series incorporate a Day/Night function, providing clear images even
in 0.15 lx lighting conditions.
The SNC-RX Series is the right choice for a wide variety
of surveillance and monitoring applications, delivering efficient 24/7 monitoring - anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
300 degree per second, you can move the sight to the desired position quickly. Up to 16 preset positions can be
set with return accuracy of ±0.2 degree.
"Day/Night" function
With the combination of Day/Night function and Exwave
HAD CCD, the SNC-RX550P offers high sensitivity
(Minimum illumination 0.15lx) and excellent visibility in
poor and varying light conditions.
Multiple compression formats (JPEG, MPEG4,
Depending on application and available bandwidth on a
network, you can select your optimum codec from above
three codecs. Typically, the compression ratio of MPEG4
is approximately four times higher than JPEG, while
H.264’s compression ratio is approximately twice that of
the MPEG4.
MPEG4 and JPEG dual encoding capability
The SNC-RZ50P can generate MPEG4 and JPEG images simultaneously. While JPEG stream can be recorded and monitored locally, where available bandwidth is
sufficient, MPEG4 can be transmitted over the Internet
even under limited bandwidth.
Intelligent motion detection
Different from the conventional motion detection scheme,
the SNC-RZ50’s motion detection analyzes movement
over the last 15 frames to detect only significant motion. It
reduces false alarms from environmental noise such as
shaking trees, waves or random noise from AGC (Auto
Gain Control).
360 degree endless pan, tilt and 26x zoom
Intelligent object detection
The SNC-RX550 incorporates 360 degree endless pan,
tilt and 26x optical zoom capability to provide full visibility
of the camera’s surrounding. With a pan and tilt speed of
An object that newly appears and stays more than 40
seconds in the selected scene can be detected as an
"unattended object". This function can also detect an
object which has been removed from the scene. There
are three time settings for this function.
Wide Dynamic Range With DynaView
The camera incorporates DynaView technology, which
dramatically improves camera dynamic range by 128
times when compared to conventional cameras. This results in clear image reproduction, even in extreme highcontrast environments.
The camera captures the same image twice - first with a
normal shutter speed, and then with a high shutter speed.
The dark areas captured at normal shutter speed and the
bright areas captured at high shutter speed are then combined into one image using an advanced DSP LSI.
Additionally, as these high-contrast scenes may have different lighting conditions, two white balance circuits are
employed - one for normal shutter speed and the other for
high shutter speed. This advanced technique reproduces
high-contrast images with proper colour.
High-Quality Images and High-Sensitivity
Employing the latest 1/4-type Exwave HAD CCD, the
SNC-RX550 delivers exceptional picture quality for your
remote monitoring applications. And with a minimum illumination level of 1.0 lx at F 1.6 in color, the camera captures high-contrast images even in low-light conditions.
verify the origin of images and ensure the integrity of images against tampering*. This is done by creating a digital
certificate for each camera manufactured and applying digital signatures in the form of metadata to all images produced by that camera; this combination assures that an
image produced by a camera is unique only to that
Sensor IN/Alarm OUT ports
Equipped with two sensor inputs, the SNC-RX550 can receive triggers from external sensors. Also, two alarm outputs can be used to trigger other devices to perform a
variety of actions.
Pre-/Post-Alarm Image Storage
The SNC-RX550 is capable of storing both pre-and postalarm images on removable media such as ATA memory
cards and Memory Stick media when an alarm is
Image Transfer Using FTP/SMTP
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. Also, a still image at the time of an alarm event
can be sent to a designated e-mail address*.
Simultaneous Access
Up to 20 users can simultaneously access the SNCRX550 and monitor images separately.
Multicasting Capability
High Frame Rate
The SNC-RX550 supports a maximum frame rate of 30
fps when the image size is VGA (640 x 480) in both
MPEG-4 and JPEG modes, producing clear and smoothmoving images. The frame rate can be set to meet your
network environment and system requirements.
Dual Encoding Capability
Cette fonction permet de masquer des zones non
désirées ou proscrites afin d’éviter toute atteinte à la vie
privée. La fonction de masquage verrouille les zones
désignées même lorsque le mode PTZ est activé, grâce à
une reconnaissance tridimensionnelle de la position de la
caméra en fonction des mouvements PTZ. Il est possible
de configurer jusqu’à 8 masquages à l’aide de l’Outil de
Masquage de Zone, fourni avec le CD-ROM du logiciel
version 1.1.
The SNC-RX550 has a built-in multicasting capability for
MPEG-4 and H.264 video. When configured with a multicast router, the unit can efficiently stream video and audio
to a large number of users.
IP Filtering
With IP filtering, access to the SNC-RX550 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 five
levels of access. The administrator has complete access/
control of the cameras; while the other four levels of access can be set to limit user privileges to functions such
as PTZ control, viewing, and trigger control.
Anti-tampering Function
Incorporating a digital signature technology using Public
Key Infrastructure (PKI), the SNC-RX550 allows users to
