Camera test: Sony SNC-VB-630
- 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 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 SNC-VB630 fixed network camera has a range of new functions on the basis of the new Exmor CMOS sensor. The image processing is improved by View-DR to provide clear images under strong backlighting or high-contrast conditions. XDNR technology (eXcellent Dynamic Noise Reduction) is used to reduce image noise. It provides clear, low-noise images at low light levels. The built-in video and audio analysis has been improved by additional functions such as face recognition and the recognition of unattended and removed objects. The SNCVB630 has a sensitivity level that is more than twice that of the cameras of the 5th Sony generation.
This day/night fixed camera from Sony's sixth product generation impresses with its good image quality even in low light level conditions and backlight situations. In addition the maximum frame rate of 60 images per second is also excellent. The device is supplied with power via PoE and has an SD card slot. The SNC-VB630 is ONVIF compatible (ONVIF Profile S) and provides camera-based video and audio analysis functions.
