An important addition to Sony's superlative range of network security systems, the SNC-CH180 is an HD camera that can see in the dark, with infra-red IR Illuminator. It captures clear pictures even without any visible light.
This feature-rich HD fixed security camera comes with Sony's image enhancement expertise. It includes View-DR for a very wide dynamic range in difficult lighting conditions, and XDNR for incredibly powerful noise reduction. Couple these with the SNC-CH180's IR Illuminator, and you have a powerful HD network security camera.
The SNC-CH180 projects infra-red light 15 metres from the lens and beyond, effortlessly capturing clear images where other devices would see only darkness*.
Sony's DEPA Advanced Intelligent Video and Audio Analytics means the SNC-CH180 delivers crystal-clear images and automatic alarm triggers and alerts - based on user-defined rules. The SNC-CH180 also offers excellent protection against vandals and the weather.
This is a camera that's ready for anything.
Captures images in complete darkness using IR illuminators.
Captures clear images in complete darkness, up to 15m from the lens, and often beyond. In low light, or even in no light, the SNC-CH180 still gets the picture
High Definition image capture
Resolve smaller details in images thanks to 720p 30fps capture resolution
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
View-DR (Visibility Enhanced Wide Dynamic Range) for extra dynamic range in images captured by the camera
With Sony's View-DR (Visibility Enhanced Wide Dynamic Range) innovation, you can achieve a high contrast ratio of 125dB. This ensures realistic tonal detail, and state-of-the-art image enhancement with a wide, dynamic range capability.
XDNR eXcellent Dynamic Noise Reduction to improve pictures in low illumination
XDNR (Excellent Dynamic Noise Reduction) technology virtually eliminates image blur in low-light conditions, enabling users to clearly capture images that have not been easy to portray in the past. It also overcomes the problems associated with many competitor camera models. What's more, when both XDNR and Visibility Enhancer are turned on, the cameras can achieve four times the sensitivity compared to when they are off. This technology is ideal for any outdoor surveillance monitoring, such as in a car park at night.
DEPA Advanced analytics triggers alarms and alerts based on user-created rules
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
Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability
Supporting Power over Ethernet (PoE), the SNC-CH180 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
Built-in heater for cold weather
With a built-in heater, the SNC-CH180 will work in temperatures from -20 to 50°C (does not work with PoE).
IP66 rating against water ingress/damage
The SNC-CH180 is rain and splash-proof – essential for serious outdoor use
ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) compliance
Compliance with ONVIF Open Network Video Interface Forum) ensures interoperability and maximum flexibility between a wide range of manufacturers' network video products.
