With a vandal-resistant rating of IK10, the SNC-ZM551 Network Minidome camera features IPELA Hybrid – Sony's IP over-coax technology – allowing customers to migrate easily to HD IP video surveillance systems, utilising existing analog infrastructure, such as cables, power supplies, switchers, controllers and monitors, thus minimising investment in new infrastructure. IPELA Hybrid offers a cost effective and environmentally friendly installation.

The SNC-ZM551 offers Dual Streaming, which can feature any combination of three industry-standard compression formats – JPEG, MPEG-4 and H.264 – meaning that the camera uses the best compression format for every kind of data. The cameraalso offers a built-in variable focus lens, 1280x1024 maximum HD resolution, as well as the 1/3 type "Exmor" CMOS sensor for high image quality and low noise.


Dual streaming with any combination of industry-standard codecs
The SNC-ZM551 supports dual streaming with any combination of three industry-standard compression formats – JPEG, the best choice for high-quality still images, MPEG-4, the format that provides clear moving images efficiently over limited-bandwidth networks, and H.264, the alternative for severely limited-bandwidth networks, providing twice the efficiency of MPEG-4. This means that the camera can use the best compression format for every kind of data.
Exmor® CMOS® Sensor yields improved image acquisition
Derived from Sony's broadcast product range, the "Exmor" CMOS sensor is one of the highest quality available, meaning high resolution images with low noise characteristics for improved image acquisition.
Minimum Illumination enables surveillance even in poor lighting
The SNC-ZM551 can operate at 0.50 lx for colour and 0.30 lx for black and white, delivering surveillance performance even under very dark conditions.
Day/Night function for optimised images in all light conditions
The Day/Night function switches the camera between Day (colour) and Night (B/W) modes, so that in Night mode the camera becomes sensitive to near-IR light and can reproduce images not visible to the naked eye.
