Overview of the Sony SNC-EM631

Sony SNC-EM631 indoor network camera with 105° horizontal viewing angle, DEPA advanced intelligent video analytics and smartphone viewing

Full HD 1080p at 30 frames per second and advanced imaging technologies of the Sony SNC-EM631 provide a high performance, IK10 rated vandal resistant indoor surveillance camera suitable for location in areas of at high risk of vandalism attempts. The SNC-EM631 offers a round-the-clock monitoring solution, producing accurate, high quality images during daylight, automatically switching to monochrome at night through an infrared cut filter. The compact mini dome design of this Sony IP camera makes it unobtrusive and ideal for discreet surveillance operations.

Sony XDNR noise reduction technology improves images captured under low illumination, giving the SNC-EM631 good low light capability whilst View-DR wide dynamic range (WDR) ensures detail is maintained when images are captured in severe backlight conditions. These advanced imaging features enable the Sony SNC-EM631 to produce high quality images in a variety of changing lighting environments.

Easy focus and easy zoom features make installation of the SNC-EM631 quick and simple. This is made easier further through PoE support, which only requires one cable for power and network connectivity. Selectable bit rate enables users to choose a bit rate suitable for specific network conditions, therefore giving flexibility regarding bandwidth usage.

Sony's smartphone viewer is also supported, giving a remote video management option and the user flexibility on where data is managed from.

Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply, please select from the above drop down menu if you require a PoE midspan.
