Overview
• You should keep in mind that the images or audio
you are monitoring may be protected by privacy
and other legal rights, and the responsibility for
making sure you are complying with applicable
laws is yours alone.
• Access to the images and audio is protected only
by a user name and the password you set up. No
further authentication is provided nor should you
presume that any other protective filtering is done
by the service. Since the service is Internet-based,
there is a risk that the image or audio you are
monitoring can be viewed or used by a third-party
via the network.
Overview
Image transmission using an e-mail or
FTP
You can send a still image from the camera as an e-mail
or FTP server, attachment by setting off a trigger using
an external sensor input, built-in object detection
function or manual trigger button. You can also send still
images sequentially for a determined period before and
after the trigger to an FTP server, or send them
periodically.
Preset positions and Tour programs
You can save up to 16 preset positions (pan, tilt and
zoom positions) of the camera, and up to 5 tour
programs composed from the preset positions. You can
activate the preset positions by synchronizing them with
an external sensor input or built-in object detection
function.
Intelligent object detection function
Features
High-quality monitoring via the network
You can monitor a high-quality live image from the
camera using the Web browser on a computer connected
to a 10BASE-T or 100BASE-TX network. The
maximum frame rate is 30 fps for SNC-RX550N and 25
fps for SNC-RX550P.
Up to 20 users can view an image from one camera at the
same time.
The camera supports JPEG and MPEG4 image modes
(video codecs) and can operate in either the “Single
codec” or “Dual codec” mode. The “Single codec”
mode allows monitoring in one of the two video codecs,
and the “Dual codec” mode allows monitoring in JPEG
and MPEG4 simultaneously.
Remote-controllable high-speed pan/tilt
mechanism and high magnification autofocus zoom lens
The camera is provided with a high-speed (300°
rotation/second) pan/tilt mechanism, which allows 360°
endless panning and –90° to 0° tilting. The camera is
also provided with a high-magnification zoom lens with
optical zoom of 26 magnifications and digital zoom of
12 magnifications, for a total of 312 magnifications.
Wireless LAN
Inserting the optional SNCA-CFW1 wireless card into
the PC card slot enables you to transmit images from the
camera via wireless LAN (802.11b).
6
Features
The camera is provided an intelligent object detection
function to watch images. This function combines
“Moving object detection” that detects moving objects
in camera images with “Unattended object detection”
that detects objects that do not move for a specified
period in camera images.
Alarm output
The camera is equipped with two sets of alarm outputs.
You can use the alarms to control peripheral devices by
synchronizing them with the external sensor inputs,
built-in object detection function, manual trigger button,
Day/Night function or timer.
Direct panning/tilting
Clicking on a desired point in the viewer allows you to
pan and tilt the camera in the direction of that point.
Dragging a desired area in the viewer allows you to
zoom in the dragged area as well as pan and tilt the
camera.

• If you are using Windows XP Service Pack 2, disable
“Windows Firewall” (see page 9).
TCP: This is normally selected.
When TCP is selected as the communication port,
HTTP communication is adopted for video/audio
communications.
HTTP is the protocol used for reading the usual
Web page.
In an environment capable of reading Web pages,
you can watch or listen to the video/audio by
selecting the TCP port.
UDP (Unicast): When UDP (Unicast) is selected
as the communication port, RTP (Real-time
Transport Protocol) is adopted for video/audio
communications. Since RTP is the protocol for
running video/audio data, the video/audio playback
is smoother than when TCP (HTTP) is selected. If
a firewall is installed between the camera and the
computer, or depending on the network
environment, the video/audio may not play back

case, select TCP.
UDP (Multicast): This protocol is selectable when
Multicast streaming (page 40) is On. When UDP
(Multicast) is selected as the transmission port,
RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol) and UDP
multicast techniques are adopted for video/audio
transmission. By selecting it, the network
transmission load of the camera can be reduced. If
a router that does not correspond to the multicast or
a firewall is installed between the camera and the
computer, the video/audio may not play back
properly. In that case, select TCP or UDP
(Unicast).

What is unattended object
detection ?
The unattended object detection function of this unit
compares the reference background image with the
current image to detect an unattended object. The unit
can perform “Abandoned object detection” of an object
that did not exist and appears now as an unattended
object. The unit can also perform “Removed object
detection” of an object that existed before and now has
disappeared as an unattended object.
Abandoned object detection
The camera first stores in memory the background
image for reference. If an object that did not exist before
appears on the background and stops, the camera detects
the object as an unattended object. If the unattended
object stays in camera image for more than the specified
time, it is marked with a red frame and an alarm linked
to unattended object detection is output. you can activate
alarm sending of the FTP client function, alarm
recording of the image memory function and playback
of an audio file in synchronization with the alarm.

Assigning the IP Address to the Camera Using ARP Commands
If you do not receive a reply, check the following:
– Did you enter the ARP commands within 5 minutes
after it was turned on?
If not, turn off the camera and restart the operation.
– Is the NETWORK indicator on the camera flashing?
If the indicator goes off, the network connection has a
problem. Connect the network correctly.
– Did you enter the IP address previously used for
another device?
Assign a new IP address to the camera.
– Do the computer and the camera have the same
network address?
If not, set the same network address on the computer
and the camera.
Using the SNMP
This unit supports SNMP (Simple Network
Management Protocol). You can read MIB-2 objects
and write some MIB-2 objects using software such as
SNMP manager software. This unit also supports the
coldStart trap which occurs when the power is turned on
or the unit restarts, and the Authentication failure trap
which informs of an illegal access using SNMP.
Using CGI commands, you can set community name
and access limitation, reading/writing right, host to send
traps, and some MIB-2 objects. To allow these settings,
you need authentication by the camera administrator.
1. Inquiry Commands
You can check the SNMP Agent settings using the
following CGI commands.
With the above inquiry, you can obtain the following
setting information. The following explains the setting
information using the inqjs=snmp (JavaScript
parameter) format.
var sysDescr=“SONY Network Camera SNC-RX550”
...1
var sysObjectID=“1.3.6.1.4.1.122.8501”
...2
var sysLocation=“”
...3
var sysContact=“”
...4
var sysName=“”
...5
var snmpEnableAuthenTraps=“1”
...6
var community=“public,0.0.0.0,read,1”
...7
var community=“private,192.168.0.101,write,2” ...8
var trap=“public,192.168.0.101.1”
...9
1 describes the case of “mib-2.system. sysDescr.0”.
You cannot change this parameter.
2 describes the case of “mib-2.system.
sysObjectID.0”. You cannot change this parameter.
3 describes the case of “mib-2.system.
sysLocation.0”. This field is used to describe
information on the location of this camera. Nothing
is set at the factory.
5 describes the case of “mib-2.system. sysName.0”.
This field is used to describe administration node of
this camera. Nothing is set at the factory.
6 describes the case of “mib-2.snmpEnable
AuthenTraps.0”. This example shows when “1”
(enable) is set. With this setting, a trap occurs when
there is an Authentication failure. When “2”
(disable) is set, no Authentication failure trap
occurs.
7 describes the community name and the reading/
writing attributes. This example shows the
identification number “ID=1”, the community
name public, and enables read from any IP address
(0.0.0.0).
8 describes the community name and the reading/
writing attributes, similarly to 7. This example
shows the identification number ID=2, the
community name “private”, and enables “read/
write” by the SNMP request packet from the host
“192.168.0.101”.
