Sony further showcased how it’s leading the way in HD video security innovation by unveiling its Detektor International Award winning new range of IP video security solutions, featuring its IPELA ENGINE platform, at Security Essen, Europe’s largest security show in Germany.

The six new IPELA ENGINE EX cameras and one Unitised PTZ camera, represent a new breed of security cameras designed to deliver advances in dynamic range, frame capture speed and low-light performance for demanding imaging applications, in the mid-to-high level video surveillance marketplace. Each of these cameras is well fitted for applications on transportation as well as monitoring traffic, casinos, banks and factories. In addition to setting new standards for camera performance, the unique IPELA ENGINE EX™ architecture allows for unprecedented flexibility.

Six new models are using the engine

The six new IPELA ENGINE EX series cameras include the fixed-angle SNC-VB600 and SNC-VB630 Box cameras; the SNC-VM600 and SNC-VM630 Mini Dome cameras, and the SNC-VM601 and SNC-VM631 Vandal-Proof Indoor Mini Domes. These incorporate improvements in core camera functionality, designed to provide extraordinary imaging even in the most challenging security scenarios.

View-DR has been improved

With the newly improved View-DR dynamic range enhancing technology, each IPELA ENGINE EX series model provides astounding detail even when imaging brightly backlit figures. Noise reduction is significantly enhanced and low light sensitivity is tremendously improved to more than twice that of Sony’s previous pace-setting cameras. Maximum frame rates are doubled from 30 fps to 60 fps at both HD and full HD resolution.

Combining signal processing and video analytics

The IPELA ENGINE EX is Sony’s integrated signal processing system for high picture quality which combines the company’s unique signal processing and video analytics technologies. This signal processing system provides four unique features:

  1. High frame rate of 60 frames per second (fps) – provides smooth moving pictures
  2. View-DR – realises high-contrast images with a wide dynamic range equivalent to 90 dB for Full HD (1080p) and 130 dB for HD (720p)
  3. XDNR – realises excellent dynamic noise reduction
  4. Enhanced DEPA Advanced – provides state of the art video image analytics such as face detection

The Detektor Jury were impressed with IPELA ENGINE, commenting that; “IPELA ENGINE is the outstanding highlight of video surveillance products in 2012. A sensational improvement of picture quality and an essential contribution to image usability”.

Platform for the development of new solutions

Commenting on the announcement, Ryan Kawashima, Strategic Marketing Manager, Sony Europe said: “The IPELA ENGINE platform will play a central role for all of Sony’s indoor and outdoor security cameras for years to come. It delivers the best image quality, which when combined with the robustness and design features that Sony’s security cameras are known for, only strengthens our positioning in the market. This is a significant milestone in Sony’s technological advancement of IP-based security video and will ensure we can provide a cost-effective platform for not only developing new applications, but also refining and customising existing ones.”
