Six New PTZ Cameras Released by Sony

Sony SNC-EP580Sony Electronics has just recently announced the new EP and ER series of network cameras. These new cameras are PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) and rapid dome models each feature three different units that cater to diverse customer needs. Each of these new cameras is also compatible with full HD 1080p output, HD 720p output or standard definition output and the six new network cameras also represent the most comprehensive lineup of full featured, wide-area surveillance units in Sony's HD security camera series. All of these cameras are rich with features and are integral for high-definition, wide-area video surveillance. These cameras can serve a multitude of services and are recommended for peripheral surveillance for large buildings, factories and parking lots. They are also good for monitoring roads, highways and transportation hubs. They are also good for public utilities like power and water purification plants or for surveillance on city streets.

They provide the video coverage on the perimeter and peripheral locations in most security solutions from Sony." These new high speed cameras are capable of full PTZ functions of up to 360-degrees per second and can also utilize Sony's DynaView technology in order to facilitate wide-dynamic range, even in backlit environments. Both the EP and ER series of network cameras also receive power via Ethernet (POE) which makes installation simple and increases the flexibility of where the cameras can be mounted. These full HD cameras, utilizing an optical block developed by Sony, feature a high magnification zoom functionality. The SNC-EP580 and SNC-ER580 models feature 20x optical zoom while the SNC-EP550 and SNC-ER550 feature 28x optical zoom with a minimum rotation radius of 340-degrees. Some models even feature endless (360-degree) rotation for the widest area surveillance possible. Other special features include:
