Camera test: Samsung SND 5080
- Read Whitepaper
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. For the testing procedure, video sequences are produced under defined lighting scenarios and are then evaluated. Here, movements in the picture as well as night and backlight situations are taken into consideration.
GIT SECURITY and Seetec did test the IP camera Samsung SND 5080. Let us have a look at the results:
Samsung SND 5080
The SND 5080 is part of the new HD network camera series from Samsung and provides images in various CIF formats up to 16:9 HD with 1.3 megapixels. Like the Samsung SNB-5000 model (box camera), the SND-5080 also conforms to ONVIF standards, which guarantee interoperability between IP systems regardless of manufacturer. The model uses the newly-developed WiseNet transceiver, which enables the parallel output of multiple image streams (H.264, MPEG-4 and MJPEG). The SND 5080 surface-mount dome camera is a day/night camera that also supports the recording of images on an SD memory card. The camera is available in various designs.
The SND 5080 fixed dome camera is suitable for indoor use and provides resolutions up to 1.3 megapixels and can receive power over a network cable (PoE). The recording of image data on an SD card and the parallel output of multiple image streams are standard. Different designs are available on request, thus in addition to the basic version there is also a version for in-ceiling installation as well as a vandal-proof version.
