Sony Wireless Card Compatibility Guide

June 19th, 2008 by Greg

One feature of Sony cameras which we think is rather unique is their optional wireless support for some of the key IP cameras in their product line-up.

This support allows wireless connectivity for high-end domes such as the SNC-RZ50N or the SNC-RX series, something not found in any of the other ranges we support.

The way they offer this support is by using a wireless Compact Flash card. This card needs to be inserted directly into the camera’s Compact Flash card slot or into the camera’s alternative data slot using an appropriate adapter.

The card comes in two models. The SNCA-CFW1 or the SNCA-CFW5. The main difference is in the wireless speeds. The SNCA-CFW1 works to IEEE802.11b 11Mbps speeds while the SNCA-CFW5 works to IEEE802.11g 54Mbps. Although the SNCA-CFW5 card is only supported by multi-codec cameras. See compatibility tables below for information.

NOTE

Two other Sony cameras are currently marked as wireless compatible, the SNC-RZ30N and the SNC-Z20. Currently these cameras cannot use either the Sony SNCA-CFW1 or the SNCA-CFW5 cards, instead they used to use a third-party card which has since been discontinued. We are working to find a solution and will update the Resource Center when this is available.

Sony SNC-CFW5 wireless cardA great selling point when it comes to Sony IP cameras is that they offer wireless connectivity in their high-end PTZ and dome models, something which is lacking from all other ranges.

This feature is not built-in to the camera but is offered as an optional extra with the purchase of a wireless compact flash card. The card has an internal antenna and will slot into the camera directly (or indirectly using an adaptor) and this will provide wireless connectivity. The range can also be extended by using an optional external antenna which connects to the wireless card.

Confusingly Sony has two wireless cards which appear identical apart from the wireless speeds but they aren’t. We will discuss compatibility in a future article.

This guide is suitable for the following:

SNC-P5
SNC-Z20
SNC-CS50
SNC-RZ25N
SNC-RZ30N
SNC-RZ50N
SNC-RX530N
SNC-RX550N
SNC-RX570N
