Sony 4K IP Camera

sony-4k-logoSony’s latest 4K IP cameras provide very high resolution, and excellent low light performance.  They use very large sensors, and the latest high performance image processors.

There are two models available, the SNC-VM772R IP dome camera and the sensational SNC-VB770 box IP camera.  The SNC-VM772R dome camera tested very well against the competition, while the latest SNC-VB770 box camera far exceeded the competition for clarity, and low light performance.

SNC-VM772R Features and Specifications:

SNC-VM772r 4K Dome IP Camera

With four times the resolution of Full HD, Sony’s first 4K network security camera brings industry-leading clarity and sensitivity to critical video monitoring and surveillance applications.

Thanks to the camera’s large, highly sensitive 1.0-type back-illuminated Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor, high-speed image processing engine and high-quality zoom lens, the SNC-VM772R captures detail-packed 4K/30 fps video footage with a minimum illumination of 0.06 lx – even in near darkness.

Features include:

  • Excellent low-light capabilities are further enhanced with in-built IR illuminators for true night-time coverage.
  • Edge Storage (onboard recording with memory cards) safeguards recordings during network outage.
  • The camera’s outstanding image performance is enhanced with features, including Optical Image Stabilisation for steadier pictures.
  • Quick, simple installation and setup (SNC toolbox mobile).
  • The discreetly styled mini dome camera features a ruggedised vandal and weather resistant design that is ideal for tough round-the-clock video security and surveillance assignments, indoors or outside (IK10, IP66).

SNC-VB770 Features and Specifications

Sony-SNC-VB770 4K IP Camera

Features include:

  • Thanks to ultra-high sensitivity, the SNC-VB770 4K network camera operates at a very minimum illumination of less than 0.004 lx – to capture exceptionally detailed 4K/30 fps color video.  This camera is excellent for low light applications.
  • The SNC-VB770 uses the 35 mm full-frame Exmor sensor, which is developed based on Sony’s most advanced image processing technology. The sensor captures significantly more incident light than conventional camera sensors to bring drastic improvements to the sensitivity.
  • E mount lenses maximise the performance of the 35 mm full-frame sensor, keeping high resolution across the entire image area from the centre to fringe.
