SNC-CH280 (SNCCH280)Discontinued

Outdoor IR Bullet 1080p/30 fps Camera - V Series


The SNC-CH280 is an outdoor high definition (1080p, supporting H.264 at 30fps) 3 Megapixel bullet camera with True Day/Night function, IR Illumination, DEPA Advanced and ONVIF compliance. It supports dual streaming, e-PTZ and triple codec encoding.

Sony's Exmor CMOS sensor provides excellent pictures and event detection for effective evidence gathering.

Sony's V-Series cameras have outstanding picture quality and a range of features at an affordable price.


DEPA Advanced
DEPA Advanced Intelligent Video and Audio Analytics can analyse images to detect whether pre-selected objects have moved, raising an alarm if an event is detected. Users create a set of rules that determine exactly how and when this happens.
XDNR utilises advanced signal processing to remove noise and image ghosting, and eliminates the motion blur normally associated with the capture of moving images in low light. Delivering superior image quality in low light, Sony's XDNR offers the optimum in noise reduction performance for IP CCTV solutions.
EXMOR® and CMOS Sensor®
High resolution CMOS sensor® with low noise characteristics for improved image acquisition. Derived from Sony's broadcast product range, EXMOR® is one of the highest quality image sensors available.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability
Supporting Power over Ethernet (PoE), the camera can be powered using the same Ethernet cable it uses for data transfer. This feature greatly reduces the physical infrastructure costs and speed of deployment.
ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) compliance
The ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) defines a common protocol for the exchange of information between network video devices including automatic device discovery and video streaming. Allows interoperability between network video devices.
Solid State PTZ
Allows users to electronically pan, tilt, and zoom within the camera's field of view.
CF card slot
Compact Flash card slot for onboard recording or wireless networking (with optional SNCA-CFW5 card)
Full HD (1920x1080p) resolution
Detailed Full HD progressive images. Progressive acquisition (as opposed to interlace) means that images are more stable to view, contain more information and compress more efficiently - without "interlace artifacts".
Supports multiple industry standard codecs: H264, MPEG-4 and JPEG with dual streaming capability
This multi-codec camera supports three compression formats: JPEG, the best choice of high-quality still images
True Day/Night
Optimises sensitivity in day and night conditions. As night falls, an infra-red filter is automatically removed and the camera switches to monochrome. In this mode, the camera can acquire images extremely low light conditions.
IR Illuminators
Built-in IR (Infrared) illuminators provide assistance to the camera when capturing objects in the dark.
Easy Focus/Easy Zoom
Easy Focus/Easy Zoom simplifies installation by making it easy to set up the focus and zoom settings of the camera.
Built-in heater
Ensures that the camera will operate correctly in cold weather.
Analogue Monitor Output
This allows an analogue video monitor to be connected directly to the camera.
