The latest addition to the Samsung varifocal dome range, the SCD-2080R, is an internal dome with built-in IR LED illuminators. It is designed to provide a stylish and competitively priced option for a wide range of applications including offices, retail outlets, petrol stations and hotels.
In cooperation with Seetec, GIT SECURITY tests current and new video cameras under standardised conditions in the test laboratory of the SeeTec Hardware Competence Center. The Hardware Competence Center was set up because the data and performance specifications of network cameras as stated by manufacturers are often measured under different conditions and are not always reliable in practice. The results provided a sound basis for planning IP video projects and help to avoid unpleasant surprises.
The SNP-3370 high-resolution network PTZ dome camera, which is part of the Samsung iPOLiS range, is equipped with a powerful 37x optical zoom which captures high resolution 550TVL images to allow operators to observe the detail of far away objects. At the same time Samsung has also launched the SNP-3301 which has a 30x zoom capability and shares the same features as the SNP-3370.
Samsung has introduced the SCP series of speed domes, a new high specification range with up to 43x optical zoom capability to allow users to monitor a wide area and if required, zoom in on far away objects to observe them in fine detail. The SCP series incorporates Samsung's A1 DSP chipset that enables the capture of clear and vivid colour images at 600TV lines resolution.
Samsung announces that four Samsung 1.3-megapixel high-definition (HD) network camera models conform to Open Network Video Interface (ONVIF) standards to ensure interoperability with other network components in system-wide solutions.
The SCB-3001 true day/night camera capitalises on the advanced technology built into Samsung's SV-V DSP chipset to capture superb high resolution 650TVL colour images by utilising the new 960H SuperHAD CCD.
The latest addition to the Samsung DVR range, the SVR-470, which utilises "network-friendly" H.264 compression to minimise storage and bandwidth requirements, is able to simultaneously record video in real time across all its four channels.
Samsung's new SCD-2020, SCD-2021 and SCD-2040 fixed focal domes are designed to replace the highly successful SID-47, SID-48 & SID-49 domes.
It is almost a tradition that very early in the year Samsung Techwin is inviting its partners to the annual Vision Day conference. This year the conference took place in Antalya, Turkey on February 18th and 19th. The Vision Day conference is always a good opportunity for the company to inform their partners about the latest products and the strategy for the upcoming months. The delegates used the opportunity to be among the first to see and have hands-on demonstrations of many of the new products to be launched this year.
