The Sony SNC-RX530P network camera is a professional IP dome camera with endless 360° rotation, 18x optical zoom, automatic day/night switching, bi-directional audio support, image stabilisation and intelligent video features based on Sony’s DEPA platform.

The entry point to Sony’s professional SNC-RX series, the SNC-RX530P is suitable for high-end security surveillance live image monitoring and recording applications for any large/medium sized business or organisation. High quality images are delivered using the cameras ¼-type Exwave HAD CCD sensor at a maximum resolution of 640x480 (VGA) at a frame rate of up to 30fps. The camera also supports multiple video compression formats including H.264 so output can be optimised based on storage/bandwidth requirements. Automatic day/night switching allows the camera to adjust automatically between colour daylight viewing and infrared sensitive black and white video producing usable images down to 0.15 lux. The camera also features fully controllable pan-tilt-zoom control with 360° endless rotation and 18x optical zoom (216x combined) for monitoring of distant objects. The Sony RX-530P is also part of Sony’s DEPA technology family. This enables intelligent video applications to run in the camera which will pass data to DEPA-enabled recording devices to record images based on a series of rules and protocols. An example of which is Intelligent Object Detection which records footage and alerts a user if an object has been left unattended in a scene for a set period of time or conversely, if an object is removed from a scene. Advanced features include anti-tampering function, image stabilisation, bi-directional audio communication and image transfer by email/FTP when alarms are triggered by intelligent motion detection, external sensor input or by intelligent functions. Like all IP cameras offered on, the Sony SNC-RX530P has a built-in web server and can be viewed over a Local Area Network (LAN), Wide Area Network (WAN) or via the Internet as a streaming IP webcam.

Sony SNC-RX530P - Key features:

  • 18x optical zoom (216x combined with 12x digital zoom) provides close-up monitoring of distant objects
  • Industrial grade pan-tilt-zoom mechanics provides precise control at speeds of up to 300° per second to allow moving subjects to be monitored easily and efficiently

  • True day/night capability allows the camera to provide useable colour images during the day and infrared black/white video in periods of low-light giving 24 hour surveillance
  • Intelligent motion detection reduces the amount of false alarms you may find generated by conventional motion detection routines in other camera models
  • A DEPA technology, Intelligent object dectection will notify the user if an object has been left unattended or removed from a scene for a set period of time
  • Anti-tamper function provides authentication for the images produced by the camera. Using digital signature technology the integrity of the images recorded can be proven to be authentic and unique to the camera they were taken from
  • Image stabilisation provides clearer images by reducing the effect of blurring you would expect to be caused by vibrations or high wind
  • Pre-/post-alarm images can be stored on internal removable media using the camera’s PCMCIA or Memory Stick slots

  • Alarms can be triggered by external sensor input (x2) such as a door bell, magnet sensor. Also, two alarm outputs can be used to control output relay devices
  • Privacy zone masking allows sensitive areas of an image to be masked to protect privacy. This mask will dynamically reposition in accordance with the pan-tilt-zoom mechanism so the area remains covered
  • Analog video output for monitoring using traditional analog CCTV monitoring equipment
