SNC-RH164 (SNCRH164)Discontinued

Outdoor Unitized 720p/30 fps Rapid Dome Camera


With IP66 protection, an impact resistant dome cover and a unique integrated sunshine ventilation system, the SNC-RH164 HD PTZ dome camera is specifically designed for heavy duty outdoor monitoring applications. The SNC-RH164 HD PTZ dome camera delivers excellent picture quality at HD resolution (1280x720, 30 fps) in 16:9 aspect ratio. This level of clarity combined with state-of-the-art image processing and a high speed panning capability makes the RH164 one of the most effective CCTV cameras on the market. With a total tilt range of 210° and a 360° endless high-speed panning capability, it can cover a wide monitoring area quickly and in a high level of detail. This capability makes it an obvious choice for mission critical CCTV applications including airport/border and traffic surveillance.

Installation and servicing time is reduced by a newly developed base, with a Quick Release Mechanism, which means the camera can be installed or detached quickly.

SNC-RH Series Cameras also feature ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) compliance for easy interoperability with IP monitoring products from a variety of manufacturers.

Please note: accessories are not included.
Enhanced viewing range
An extended tilt range provides greater viewing flexibility, especially when viewing in zoom.
Simple to install, easy to maintain
The camera can be installed or detached quickly and easily thanks to its newly developed base, which greatly reduces installation and servicing time and costs.
Highly flexible network capability
Enjoy extraordinary operational flexibility using the ideal compression format for differing image and network types (JPEG for high-quality still images)
ONVIF compliance offers the optimum in system flexibility
Compliance with ONVIF Open Network Video Interface Forum) ensures interoperability and maximum flexibility between a wide range of manufacturers' network video products.
The perfect solution for use in all outdoor monitoring applications
IP66 protection and impact resistant dome cover technology combine with an integrated sunshine ventilation mechanism to deliver the optimum in all weather protection in arduous outdoor monitoring conditions.


High Definition Picture Quality
Sony's HD CMOS image sensor provides excellent picture quality at HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels) in 16:9 aspect ratio. The full potential of sharp, clear HD images is ensured thanks to XDNR noise reduction and visibility enhancer systems.
Improved performance in challenging lighting conditions
Sony's Visibility Enhancer technology improves performance in challenging lighting conditions, for example high-contrast environments, such as casinos and highways, that had previously been difficult to monitor. The Visibility Enhancer's advanced system suppresses extreme whites and boosts dark areas in a scene simultaneously and dynamically, to produce clearer images on the screen.
Clear low-light images
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.
Powerful optical zoom
10x high quality optical zoom delivers greater flexibility in finding and tracking targets.
Wider vertical viewing range
A 210° tilt angle allows a wider vertical viewing range, whilst 400°/sec pan/tilt speed and 360° continuous rotation allows users to find and track targets quickly and easily. The E-flip feature provides seamless viewing through the full tilt swing.
Quick Release Mechanism
A new base design, incorporating a Quick Release Mechanism, makes installation and servicing faster and easier.
Triple Codec Network Operation
This multi-codec camera supports three compression formats: JPEG, the best choice of high-quality still images
ONVIF Compliant
The ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) defines a common protocol for the exchange of information between network video devices including automatic device discovery, video streaming and intelligence metadata. Allows interoperability between network video devices.
Tamper Alarm
When an attempt is made to tamper with the camera, such as spray-painting the lens, the SNC-RH Series detects this and triggers an alarm. This event can also be used to activate the camera relays, or even to start the Voice Alert function.
Advanced Audio Detection
Unlike conventional audio detection where an alarm is triggered based on a preset audio level, the SNC-RH Series triggers its alarms based on ambient sound conditions as the threshold. The camera stores and updates ambient audio levels and frequencies, and when the threshold level based on this data, is surpassed, an alarm is triggered. (Available with version 1.1 or later software.)
Audio Message Alert
The camera can store up to three pre-recorded audio alert messages which may be played via an active speaker upon manual or automatic initiation.
Audio Echo Cancellation
This feature removes the echo frequently encountered between the operator and remote site audio systems when speakers and microphones are used.
Support for IPv6
The SNC-RH Series supports Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6).
Local Storage / Wireless Capability
The SNC-RH Series has a Compact Flash (CF) slot. This can be used either with a CF memory card for local video storage, or for wireless capability. The SNCA-CFW5 (802.11b/g) CF type wireless LAN card is supported.
