Sony SNC-RZ25P IP Network Camera

By vljuson • March 27th, 2009

The SNC-RZ25P is equipped with a 100Base-TX/10Base-T network interface and a built-in web server. The SNC-RZ25P is PTZ-capable with a pan range of 340°, a tilt range of 120°, plus an 18x optical zoom capability.

snc-rz25pEmploying a 1/4-type ExwaveHAD CCD, the SNC-RZ25P delivers exceptional picture quality for your remote monitoring applications. Furthermore, because the minimum illumination level is 0.7 lx at F1.4, the SNC-RZ25P operates extremely well even in low-light conditions.

A built-in expansion slot for Compact Flash cards is integrated into the SNC-RZ25P, enabling you to store additional images on CF media as required. You can also opt to install the SNC-RZ25P in a wireless network to avoid unsightly wires, as the CF type card slot can accept the optional SNCA-CFW1 Wireless Card. This card is IEEE 802.11b compliant.

The SNC-RZ25P offers a ‘Day/Night’ function to provide optimised sensitivity in both day and night environments. As the scene darkens, the infrared cut-filter is automatically replaced with a clear filter and the camera switches to B/W mode, requiring a minimum illumination of less than 0.01 lx. Three modes can be set: automatic, manual, or a timer mode.

The SNC-RZ25P uses the MPEG-4 compression format to achieve high-compression ratios without sacrificing image quality. MPEG-4 allows smooth moving images to be streamed over a wide range of bandwidths so users can monitor high-quality moving images with minimal delay – even over limited bandwidths. The SNC-RZ25P supports variable bit rates up to 2 Mb/s. Transmission protocols (TCP or UDP) and image size can be selected to meet your network environment and application requirements.

The SNC-RZ25P produces images at a maximum frame rate of 25 fps when the image size is 320 x 240 in both MPEG-4 and JPEG modes, producing clear and smooth-moving images. The frame rate can be fixed or set to a variable rate that automatically adjusts to the available bandwidth.

The SNC-RZ25P supports both ITU-T G.711 and G.726 audio compression standards. Equipped with an external microphone jack, the SNC-RZ25P can be configured with a microphone so that audio, including sound from distant objects, can be monitored at the camera site. The unit is also equipped with an audio line output for active speakers. Using these speakers, users can send an alert or make an announcement.
