  • Pan/Tilt/Zoom Capability: With a pan range of 340 degrees and a tilt range of 115 degrees, the monitoring of a wider area is possible. Additionally, with its powerful 26x optical and 12x digital (312x total) zoom, users can zoom in on small or distant objects with exceptional clarity
  • Image Stabilizer: Greatly minimizing the appearance of shaky images caused by low-frequency vibration this P/T/Z camera is able to produce stable and sharp images. When used for outdoor surveillance and traffic monitoring, this is tremendously beneficial.
  • Anti-tampering Function.  By incorporating digital signature technology using Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), the SNC-RZ50N (SNCRZ50N) allows users to verify the origin of images and helps prevent tampering
  • Intelligent Alarm Function: Intelligent Motion Detection-In contrast to conventional motion detection which typically detects luminance level differences, the SNC-RZ50N (SNCRZ50N) utilizes the last 15 frames to calculate motion detection information
  • Intelligent Object Detection-The SNC-RZ50N (SNCRZ50N) can detect objects that have been left in one place for a specified duration.  This feature is very useful in applications such as detecting suspicious objects left in public spaces, or for detecting stalled cars or accidents on the road
  • By employing a 1/4 type Exwave HAD CCD, outstanding picture quality is produced, and, with a minimum illumination level of 2.2 lx at F1.6, the camera captures high-contrast images even in low-light conditions
  • High Frame Rates: Supporting a maximum frame rate of 30 fps when the image size is VGA (640 x 480) in both MPEG4 and JPEG modes, the Sony SNC-RZ50N (SNCRZ50N) camera produces clear and smooth-moving images. The frame rate can be set to meet your network environment and system requirements.
  • Dual Codec (Dual Streaming) Capability: The SNC-RZ50N (SNCRZ50N) is supplied with dual encoding capability that enables the camera to produce both MPEG4 and JPEG images simultaneously.
  • VISCA Protocol: The SNC-RZ50 (SNCRZ50N) can interface with external control equipment using the Sony VISCA protocol. Utilizing this configuration allows for local control of Pan/Tilt/Zoom and for camera settings
  • Flexible Installation: The SNC-RZ50 (SNCRZ50N) can either be mounted to a ceiling or placed on a desktop. Because this camera incorporates an electronic “Image Flip” function, it displays images for proper upright viewing in either orientation in both the analog output as well as the browser view
  • Up to 20 users can simultaneously access the SNC-RZ50 (SNCRZ50N), and monitor images separately.
  • Bi-Directional Audio: With this feature, users can connect an external microphone to the SNC-RZ50 (SNCRZ50N), and pickup audio from a preferred location.  Also equipped with a speaker output, this enables users to send an active alert or make an announcement, which significantly expands the possibilities for remote monitoring applications.
  • Voice Alert makes it possible to upload a pre-recorded audio file that can be played back upon an alarm trigger, or a pre-determined time schedule
  • Weight: 2 pounds, 10 ounces, and 5-5/8” x 6-5/8” x 5-5/8” in size
