“We can do 4K IP Surveillance End to End”: Sony Europe at IFSEC 2016

Sony Europe showcased its 4K video management system on a ‘city-themed’ stand at this year’s IFSEC.

I went to their stand to see their range of 4K IP surveillance kit and spoke to their product solutions manager, Roger Lawrence, about their latest VMS. “It adjusts the exposure to see better than the eye, with sufficient detail that a person can be identified. It diminishes shades and highlights.

“The screen has an embedded app so there is no need for a decoder. It can manage 16 cameras, so you don’t need a PC.”

Sony also displayed the company’s latest IP network camera, the SNC-VB770, which captures ‘extraordinary’ detail in low light, with a sensitivity of 0.004 lux.

Sony Europe’s 4K and low-light cameras are ideal for smart city, critical infrastructure and transport markets.

“With our hardware and software, we can do 4K end-to-end. Our smart bandwidth management system is unique,” Roger Lawrence told me.

The UMC-S3C, which offers ultra-low light sensitivity with 4K video recording, was also on show. It allows users to capture details even in challenging low-light conditions. The camera offers mobility features, long-duration video recording and 12 megapixel still images.

Sony Europe is planning to launch another video management system in September.
