The Sony IPELA SNC-RZ50P network camera is a high-end pan-tilt-zoom unit featuring 26x optical zoom and intelligent functionalities such as motion detection, object detection and image anti-tampering.

This IP camera combines high image quality with dual encoding (JPEG and MPEG-4), selectable compression formats (JPEG, MPEG-4 and H.264), privacy masking, image flip and automatic day/night switching. The Sony SNC-RZ50P incorporates Dynamic Frame Integration optimising the resolution for both stationary and moving subjects, providing higher sensitivity than progressive scan. Furthermore, this camera includes two-way audio, an analogue video output for local monitoring and can be configured wirelessly using the optional SNCA-CFW1 wireless card.

The Sony SNC-RZ50P produces 25 images per second at 640x480 VGA and operates in light conditions down to 2.2 lux in colour and 0.3 lux in black and white. Like all IP cameras offered on, the Sony IPELA SNC-RZ50P has a built-in webserver and can be viewed over a Local Area Network (LAN), Wide Area Network (WAN) or via the Internet.

An outdoor version is available: Sony SNC-RZ50P Outdoor Bundle

Sony SNC-RZ50P - Key benefits:

  • High-performance feature-rich day and night pan-tilt-zoon camera with a 340 degree pan range, a 115 degree tilt range and 26x optical zoom for 24/7 hour monitoring of large areas with just one camera
  • Suited for high-level security surveillance

Sony SNC-RZ50P - Key features:

  • High speed Pan and Tilt movement
  • 26x Optical zoom (312x combined optical and digital zoom)
  • 1/4" Super HAD CCD provides high-contrast images even in low light conditions
  • Selectable compression formats (JPEG, MPEG-4 and H.264) for different bandwidth environments
  • Dual Encoding Capability - Allows a JPEG stream to be recorded and monitored locally and a MPEG-4 stream to be transmitted over the Internet for remote viewing with limited bandwidth availibility
  • Intelligent Motion Detection - Analyses movement over the last 15 frames to detect only significant motion. This reduces false alarms from environmental noise such as shaking trees, moving clouds, waves or random noise from AGC (Auto Gain Control)
  • Intelligent Object Detection - Any object which is not moved for over 40 seconds can be detected as an "unattended object". This function can also detect an object which has been removed from a scene
  • Anti Tamper Function - Digital signature that proves that a picture is original and that is was generated from a specific camera
  • Dynamic Frame Integration provides very high sensitivity (better than progressive scan)
  • Privacy Zone Masking - Allows masking of unwanted or prohibited areas within the camera's view to protect privacy
  • Image Stabiliser - Minimises the appearance of shaky images caused by low-frequency vibration so that stable and sharp images are provided
  • Pre- and post alarm image storage on removable media such as ATA memory cards when motion is triggered
  • Notification via e-mail with image attachment (JPEG) when an alarm event is triggered
  • Images can be sent to a remote server using FTP when an alarm event is triggered (JPEG only)
  • Network security is provided by IP filtering and password protection
  • Camera can operate wirelessly by using the optional Sony SNCA-CFW1 wireless card (PC card adaptor required) and, if required, the range extending Sony SNC1-AN1 antenna
