Sony claims to have raised the bar in the 4K market. Here are the technical specs that it believes back up this claim as well as the launch date for the SNC-VB770.
Sony has announced the launch of a network camera with what it claims is the highest sensitivity of any 4K camera yet.
Boasting low-light sensitivity of less than 0.004lx (ISO 409600) the SNC-VB770 will appeal to security professionals who need to capture details in nearly pitch-black environments.
The new bullet camera has a full-frame 35mm Exmor sensor, which Sony has developed to capture significantly more light with low noise than conventional sensors.
The SNC-VB770 supports Sony’s high performance E-mount lens series, with lens options ranging from wide angle to telephoto. The camera can be integrated into a variety of surveillance environments such as urban, transportation, police, ports and utilities.
“The SNC-VB770 builds on Sony’s image sensor strengths and applies this expertise to new applications in the commercial video capture realm,” says Roger Lawrence, video security product manager at Sony Professional Europe. “Low-light conditions don’t only occur at night. They exist 24/7 in museums, zoos and any number of municipal and commercial areas.
“This new camera and our expanding line of 4K network models give users more options for meeting their demanding capture requirements.”
The new camera harnesses area-specific noise reduction to selectively divide images into pattern-based areas (such as edges, textures and evenly coloured areas like blue skies) to efficiently reduce noise. Detail reproduction technology enhances image quality further.
