October 19th, 2015 by Network Webcams

Sony SNC-VM772R with other 4K IP cameras in the backgroundNearly every major IP camera manufacturer now has a 4K IP camera offering but it is the Sony SNC-VM772R that truly breaks new ground because Sony have tackled three fundamental technology challenges that are holding others back, thus far anyway.

Q61 Series – Axis’ Lightfinder technology in PTZ dome cameras for the first time

October 1st, 2015 by Network Webcams

Q6115-EWe like it when there is something new and exciting to talk about. The new bit is that the latest Q6114-E PTZ camera from Axis incorporate the much-appreciated Lightfinder technology. It’s a first. The exciting bit is that this ‘enabler’ opens up a whole range of new opportunities for the use of PTZ cameras, a camera type that has been suffering from the inherent problem that it is near impossible to adequately illuminate a large 360° scene – a scenario in which PTZ cameras tend to be used. With Lightfinder now available in the Q6114-E camera the need for additional illumination has been vastly reduced.


Sony 4K comparison video tells its own story

September 16th, 2015 by Network Webcams

Sony 4K camera />In the last few years HD 720p and full HD 1080p network cameras have been dominating the higher end of the CCTV market, and they still are. But no doubt you will have heard and read about 4K resolution as the next big thing. The first 4K CCTV cameras came to market in the second half of 2014 and we have been selling a fair few – to the so-called ‘early adopters’. But 4K relies on other <a href=technologies to catch up before we can all enjoy its benefits.

June 23rd, 2015 by Jessica Brooks

Sony IP cameras have always offered great image quality and even more so since the launch of their 6th generation cameras over the last twelve months or so. However, many of the Sony cameras in the range look very similar on paper, making it difficult for people to choose the right one for their requirement. We thought to offer some help by listing the top sellers, of which there are five and they really do stand out.

The Husky M10 NVR delivers a very similar feature set to Milestone’s XProtect Essential software, whilst the more advanced M30 and M50 units are comparable to XProtect Professional.

Sony launch new lens options for popular X-series cameras

May 19th, 2015 by Jessica Brooks

Sony SNC-XM636The Sony X-series outdoor mini-dome cameras offer excellent quality and have been very popular. Now, Sony has launched a number of additional lens options, ranging from very wide to cover large areas to narrow for pinpointing specific details in a scene.

The new lenses significantly increase the installation possibilities of this affordable range, making the X series look attractive for many locations. With choice from horizontal viewing angles of 113°, 83°, 51° and 25°, and Sony’s new e-Varifocal technology, which allows you to adjust the exact focal length remotely, there are few locations where a X-series mini-sized IP camera would not suit. All three additional lens options can be used with any of the Sony X series mini dome cameras: SNC-XM631, SNC-XM632, SNC-XM636 and the SNC-XM637.


Mobotix thermal imaging and MxActivity Sensor provide optimal detection solution

April 17th, 2015 by Jessica Brooks

Mobotix M15D-Thermal cameraMuch has been said about how good thermal cameras are for detection purposes, particularly when it comes to perimeter protection or monitoring large sites at night.

However, it only works well and is worth spending the money if the analytics software processing the thermal image is powerful (or intelligent) enough to detect activity and separate false alerts (noise) from real alarms that require action.
