Camera test: Samsung SND-6084-R

In cooperation with Seetec, GIT SECURITY tests current and new video cameras under standardised conditions in the test laboratory of the SeeTec Hardware Competence Centre. The Hardware Competence Centre 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.


The SND-6084 is a dome camera for use indoors, from the new Samsung camera series equipped with the WiseNetIII- chip set. The Full HD network camera delivers high resolution 2 megapixel images and is equipped with a whole series for modern functions, e.g. 100dB WDR for difficult lighting conditions such
as backlight. It promises clear colour images even in poor light down to 0.1 lux (F1.2, 50IRE) and has an integrated, motorised varifocal lens for simple
focussing. The camera power supply is via PoE. There are simple image analysis algorithms directly on the camera. Further features are De-Fog (guarantees clear images, even under misty conditions), Face Detection (detects faces, but does not classify them), Smart Codec (division of the recorded image into areas with different quality) Audio Event- Detection.

In all of the tested areas, the Samsung SND delivers very good results. The only restriction is the relatively long compensation time in backlight situations.
The infra-red light ring integrated into the camera should be mentioned; however for reasons of comparability, this was not taken into account in the
test. The test run was performed at 30 fps, although the camera can deliver 60 fps in Full HD.
