Camera test: Samsung SNB-7000
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 SNB-7000. Let us have a look at the results:
The SNB-7000 is a true day/night ONVIF compliant 3 Megapixel box camera that incorporates Samsung's WiseNet2 DSP chipset. This camera is capable of displaying multiple resolutions from CIF (320 x 240) through to 16:9 format 1080p full HD and up to 3 megapixel (2048 x 1536). The SNB-7000 Series cameras feature Smart Compression where a predefined Region of Interest or faces (face detection) are compressed differently than the rest of the image making them clearer while maximizing bandwidth and storage efficiency.
This day/night fixed-focus camera is an all-round device, which is characterised by its high resolution (3 megapixel). It is equipped with a slot for SD cards and is supplied with power via PoE. In addition it also supports 2-way audio transfer and simple onboard video analysis algorithms.
