ISC West provides showcase for new Sony high-definition PTZ network cameras
Sony is showing off its new line of pan-tilt-zoom network cameras this week at the IFC West conference in Las Vegas. Sony SNC-RH series cameras are able to pan a full 360-degrees while capturing and streaming high-definition (HD) video at up to 30 frames per second using H.264 compression. H.264 is a new compression standard that enables the transmission and storage of high-quality video using far less bandwidth and storage space than previous compression technologies.
The newest models in the Sony SNC-RH series include the SNC-RH124N network camera which is designed for indoor use, and the outdoor SNC-RH164N IP camera. These cameras are the first in their class with the ability to transmit high-definition images using H.264 video compression. Another key attribute of the cameras, which is somewhat uncommon for PTZ cameras, is their support for Power over Ethernet (PoE). PoE allows for flexible installation, with the cameras and their PTZ features powered via standard Ethernet cable without the need for an additional power supply.
The new lineup of Sony network cameras also includes the Sony SNC-RS series of standard-definition PTZ cameras. Models include the Sony SNC-RS44N, SNC-RS46N, and the Sony SNC-RS86N.
