These two IP camera systems belong to Sony’s line of high performance 1.3 megapixel dome cameras. Both of them offer a sophisticated set of tools that make them ideal for surveillance in low-light conditions. They also come with zoom and focus lenses that can be adjusted manually or remotely, from a computer. These systems work best in indoor locations that do not require a wide field of vision, like offices or hallways.
The SNC-EM600 represents a more economical camera system, offering a basic but sophisticated surveillance option to fit a budget. The SNC-VM600 costs more, but gives you a wider range of features.
Intelligent Surveillance Software
DEPA Advanced Intelligent Video Analytics allows you to trigger alarms based on your own preset rules. These analytics include face detection, to recognize when a human face has entered the field of vision, line crossing, to detect when a set boundary is breached, object removal, to detect when something has been taken from the field of vision, or object left behind, to detect when something new has been left in the field of vision.
Both of these cameras offer a 1.3 megapixel image, with a maximum resolution of 1280 x 1024. The EM600 offers a frame rate of 30fps, while the VM600 gives you a sharper image with 60fps. The true day/night function allows it to adapt to lower or higher levels of light, delivering the best image throughout the day.
XNDR noise reduction technology helps to clear up images with little motion blur under low illumination. Image stabilizers serve to minimize the effect of camera shaking upon the captured image.
Extras and Peripherals
Either camera can be paired with indoor wall mount brackets, pole mounts, and gooseneck wall mounts to accommodate various needs.
The SNC-VM600 gives you extra functionality, including two-way audio, IO connections, alarm output, and an SD card slot to allow for video storage within the camera itself for when the network is down.
Each camera system is available in alternative outdoor or vandal-resistant versions, with optional features for defending against the elements and against tampering.
