Code: IMZ-NS109M
The demand for surveillance systems is growing, and
the adoption of IP as a transport mechanism for video
is ever increasing. Sony recognized this trend early
on, and has been focused on developing products and
solutions aligned with it.
Now Sony is pleased toannounce the introduction of
the IMZ-NS100 Series Intelligent Monitoring Software,
which can be installed on your own Microsoft ® Windows ® server to monitor and control 1, 4, 9, 16 or
32 network cameras (IMZ-NS101, IMZ-NS104, IMZNS109, IMZ-NS116, and IMZ-NS132, respectively).
The IMZ-NS100 Series is easy to use and free from
complicated operation - users find it simple to set up
connected cameras and to set frame rates for recording. They can also easily monitor, search, and play
back events with intuitive manipulation. A scalable security system can be set up in client/server configuration using more than one server installed with the
IMZ-NS100 Series and/ or using the NSR-1000 Series
Video Network Surveillance Server from Sony (which
is perfectly compatible with the IMZ-NS100 Series).
check the storage area in your PC or calculate the
frame rate yourself.
Intuitive Main GUI
With the user-friendly GUI, you can use various monitoring functions with intuitive operation, such as
drag-and-drop. You can also run a quick search, and
playback recorded images, while monitoring.
Drag-and-drop Operation
All connected cameras are shown in a tree configuration in the Camera Pane. By dragging a camera icon
and dropping it onto a Monitor Frame, you can easily
view live images from a camera.
Easy-to-use Monitoring Functions
Each Monitor Frame shows the status of the video
(live or recorded), and the name of the camera,
above each video image. Up to 8 x 8 Monitor Frames
can be used. By double clicking a specific Monitor
Frame, the display is switched to Single Monitor
Frame mode as below.
This system can be controlled by a common user
management interface, which allows the administrator
to freely set up the access level of each user. With the
IMZ-NS100 Series, you can start an HD-ready video
network surveillance system in the scale and configuration that’s ideal for current conditions, and expand
this system in the future.
Hot Spot Monitoring/Dual Monitor Support
Features
Camera Pan/Tilt/Zoom Control
Automatic Camera Registration
Defined and set by the user, these filters set parameters to trigger alarms or perform preset actions if a
’virtual environment’ is violated against prescribed
conditions.
Simple Recording Setup
The settings for recording are also easy. If you select
"Automatic Schedule Record", for example, you only
need to input the recording duration (i.e., the number
of days that data is left in the storage area). The IMZNS100 Series checks the HDD storage area and sets
the best frame rate for recording. You do not need to

A specific window in a multi-camera view (i.e., a larger window within the multi-camera window) can be
assigned as the Hot Spot area, or a second monitor
may be used for this purpose. The Hot Spot area is
used to display an image of interest to get a more detailed view. This image can be manually selected or
triggered by an alarm.
PTZ network cameras from Sony and other supported
brands can be controlled by the Camera Control pane.
In PTZ Direct Control mode, when a point in the image is clicked, the camera automatically pans and tilts
to make that point the centre of the image. You can
also zoom into the image simply by dragging out the
specified area of the image with a mouse.
Audio Monitoring
The sound from a microphone connected to the camera can be monitored at the IMZ-NS100 Series.
Quick Search and Playback While Monitoring
If you click PLAYBACK in the Monitor Control pane,
you can play back the images recorded a certain

number of seconds before (this is initially set in the
GUI Setting menu). You can also quickly search for
the recorded image by date/time search in the Monitor Control pane.
in different colours depending on the type of recording. You can easily playback video just by clicking on
a specific part of the timeline, or on the list.
Alarm List Playback
There are two types of alarm-triggered recording.
Alarm and Event (i.e., Activity) Recording. While it is
important to initiate recordings based on video motion
detection or alarm signal input, it is also helpful if the
user can define what is considered an alarm. For example, a camera may be looking at an area where
there are people moving about during office hours,
but the recording of such motion should not be considered a true alarm; it is rather a normal event or
activity. However, such motion out of office hours
should be considered a true alarm, and an action or
alert needs to be initiated. The former is performed
by Event Recording and the latter by Alarm Recording. The date/time of Alarm Recording is listed in an
Alarm List in the main GUI (but this does not occur
with Event Recording). Having this capability accomplishes two things. it saves on storage (with motion/
alarm recording only), and reduces seek times when
searching Alarms and Events.
When an alarm recording is executed, the date, time,
and the camera name are noted in the Alarm List.
Simply by double-clicking a line in the alarm list, you
can play back the recorded image.
Playback Control and Data Export
With the Playback Control pane, you can control the
playback functions such as slow and reverse/forward.
You can also export the still or moving images of your
specified date and time to external media, such as
CD-R, DVD-R, and USB Flash Memory.
Customised Layouts
The Layout Editor is a powerful feature that creates
customized site layouts and allows the user to insert
backgrounds (e.g., a floor plan or campus layout),
camera icons, and company logos.
Normal Search
You can search for specific images by setting search
conditions such as the camera name, date, time, and
the type of recording
Object Search
You can search for specific images in the recorded
video using intelligent functions. There are two types
of search. Post VMD (Video Motion Detection), and
VMF (Video Motion Filter). With Post VMD, you can
search for images in the recorded video with search
conditions that are set after the recording, such as
specific object movements. With VMF, you can search
for images in the recorded video using DEPA
(Distributed Enhanced Processing Architecture) system features. With a VMF search, you should record
metadata with DEPA-enabled cameras during the
video recording. For example, you can count the
number of people who passed a line that is set on the
screen. (Please refer to "DEPA")
DEPA
In conventional video analytic systems, the camera
only sends video images to recorders, and video image analysis is processed solely on the recorder side.
In Sony’s DEPA system, the DEPA-enabled camera
sends to the DEPA-enabled recorder not only video
images but also related metadata such as the camera
ID, date/time, and information about the shot object
(size and position). The recorder checks this metadata
with a search filter called a VMF (Video Motion Filter),
to send an alarm signal when the metadata matches a
preset condition of the VMF. Since the partial image
processing is done on the camera side, the system
can be configured in a much simpler manner, and can
be expanded more easily.
Search Results by Timeline or List
The search result is displayed either by timeline or
list. In a timeline chart, search results are displayed

Alarm/Event Recording
Schedule Recording with Alarm Marking
While using Schedule Recording, the time when the
alarm is detected can be marked in the timeline. This
function enables images to be searched quickly.
Flexible User Management Setting
All access to the IMZ-NS100 Series is managed by
user authorization, which is set by the system administrator. The administrator can simply provide each
user with a permission level selected from the five
ready-made levels of operational permission, or set
the accessibility in a more customized way. The accessible cameras for each user can be set for each
camera, or for each IMZ-NS100 Series. When the system is configured with more than one IMZ-NS100
Series and/or with one or more NSR-1000 Series of
network servers, all user information is shared
throughout the whole system.
MPEG4/JPEG Dual Stream
Connected with Sony’s major network cameras *1,
the IMZ-NS100 Series can accept both JPEG and
MPEG4 from cameras at the same time. With a limited
storage capacity, for example, you can monitor live
video via MPEG4 at frame rates as high as 30 fps, and
record video via JPEG at frame rates as low as 1 fps.
*1 SNC-RX570/RX550/RX530, SNC-RZ50, SNC-DF85/
DF80/DF50, SNC-DM160/DM110, SNC-CS50/CS20,
SNC-CM120, and later models.
Light Funnel Control for Higher Sensitivity
Light Funnel is a technology in Sony’s megapixel network cameras to provide higher sensitivity. By combining the information of four pixels and handling
them as a single pixel, this type of camera provides
sensitivity four times higher than conventional cameras. With the IMZ-NS100 Series, there is a menu to
control the Light Funnel settings of applicable

RealShot Manager Advanced
cameras; this simplifies control. (Please note that
when Light Funnel technology is applied to a 1280 x
960 image, its size becomes 640 x 480.)
Benefits
Open Platform
The IMZ-NS100 Series can be used not only with
Sony’s network cameras but also with other major
brand network cameras.
Quick Setup & Easy Operation
With the set-up wizard, you can set up the cameras in
a simple and straightforward manner. With Sony’s IP
cameras, for example, the IMZ-NS100 Series instantly
recognizes the IP addresses of connected cameras
and registers them automatically. You do not need to
check the IP addresses or go into multiple menus.
The settings for recording are also easy. If you select
"Automatic Schedule Record", for example, you only
need to input the recording duration (i.e., the number
of days that data is left in the storage area). The IMZNS100 Series checks the HDD storage area and sets
the best frame rate for recording. You do not need to
check the storage area in your PC or calculate the
frame rate yourself.
Intuitive Main GUI
With the user-friendly GUI, you can use various monitoring functions with intuitive operation, such as
drag-and-drop. You can also run a quick search, and
playback recorded images, while monitoring.
Scalability and Flexibility
The IMZ-NS100 series can be installed on your own
Microsoft Windows server to monitor and control 1, 4,
9, 16 or 32 network cameras, respectively. As your
surveillance requirements grow, you can simply add
new servers with the IMZ-NS100 Series installed and/
or the NSR-1000 Series, Sony’s video network surveillance server which is perfectly compatible with the
IMZ-NS100 Series. You can easily set up a scalable
security system in client/server configuration.
