Sony's SNC-Z20N fixed-view network color video camera combines a ? type, EXwave HAD CCD with a built-in web server and 18x AF zoom lens that provides high-resolution images to up to 50 simultaneous online viewers. In addition to incorporating the latest networking standards and protocols, the SNC-Z20N IP camera can be controlled by PC or certain handheld devices.Ideal for remote monitoring of distant locations over TCP/IP networks, the SNC-Z20N camera features a 10/100 Base-TX (RJ45) interface, an assignable IP address and a PCMCIA Type II slot for 802.11b wireless networking or flash memory storage. These features coupled with the camera's built-in firmware allow the user to view live images and to control the camera by PC or select handheld PDAs over a network.The SNC-Z20N's embedded web server allows up to 50 simultaneous viewers to monitor remote sites through a powerful auto-focus 18x optical zoom lens with 12x digital zoom. It produces high-quality motion JPEG images and offers a wide choice of resolution rates, including 736x480, 640x480, 320x240, and 160x120 at a maximum resolution at up to 30 frames per second at VGA resolution (640x480). The EXwave HAD CCD features a day/night view mode and slow shutter option that increases low light performance to a minimum illumination of .01 lux. The motion detector/activity detection/alarm trigger operates through dedicated I/O ports with a single input and dual outputs.The web server connects through a RJ45 Ethernet port and supports numerous networking protocols, including TCP/IP, ARP, ICMP, DNS, NTP, HTTP, DHCP, File Transfer Protocol (FTP), Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), and Simple Messaging Transport Protocol (SMTP). An RS-232C port provides transparency while a PCMCIA type II slot is available for wireless networking or flash memory storage. Power can be provided through the standard RJ45 Ethernet cable.
The Sony SNC-Z20N Fixed Network Color Camera combines a high-resolution, auto focus, low-light sensitivity, and a powerful zoom camera, with a network connection and IP capability, making it ideal for surveillance and remote monitoring applications that require orientation and focus on details. With the addition of its compact design and advanced feature set, the Sony SNC-Z20N is perfect for a wide range of surveillance applications including the monitoring of people and property in buildings, offices, warehouses, retail outlets, and shopping centers.
The Sony SNC-Z20N Color Network Camera is a digital network camera that distributes live images or video over an intranet or the Internet via a built-in web-server. The Sony SNC-Z20N allows high-quality remote surveillance from any browser on the network, and provides full Web-based control of its various management and configuration functions. Connecting via 10/100 Base T/TX Ethernet for both networking and power, the SNC-Z20N achieves up to 30 fps (frames per second).
This camera utilizes a 0.25-inch color Exwave HAD CCD (charge-coupled device) image sensor and provides up to 640-by-480 effective pixels at high resolutions. With an extraordinary 18x optical and 12x digital zoom that allows you to clearly pick out even the most distant objects, the Sony SNC-Z20N features a PCMCIA slot for 802.11b wireless networking or flash memory, good nighttime sensitivity with a minimum illumination of 0.7 Lux, and a clever E-flip function for correct image presentation in ceiling-mount applications.
The Sony SNC-Z20N surveillance camera is a reliable, economical and high-quality solution for demanding interactive surveillance and is designed primarily for indoor use. User's should note, however, that the CCD sensor in the camera may become permanently damaged if exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or halogen light, so the camera should not be mounted or pointed directly at the sun or other bright-light sources. This camera also requires a PC that is not included in this package in order to take advantage of the Internet functionality.

About Surveillance Camera Technical Features
Lux rating is the measurement used to indicate how sensitive a camera is to light, and stands for the level of light reflected off a piece of paper by a candle from one meter away. Thus a sensitivity of three Lux would mean a camera could generate an acceptable picture of a piece-of-paper-sized object that was illuminated by the equivalent of three candles from one meter away. The lower the Lux level, the better the camera's ability to work in low-light conditions. The camera's resolution should be greater than or equal to the resolution supported by the system's recorder or monitor. The S/N, or signal to noise ratio, is an important measure of a camera's quality. A poor camera, low-light conditions or poor wiring causes "noise" which consumes processing power and disk space. A camera with a wide dynamic range is ideal, especially for recording areas in which both indoor and outdoor light are present. CCD (charge-coupled device) sensors provide high-quality images that are less susceptible to noise. CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors offer less image quality, but are usually more cost-effective and energy efficient.
About IP Cameras
An IP camera can be used to project images and video directly through a computer's Web browser for remote monitoring. An IP camera, unlike a web cam, contains the IP and Web page within it and can often be added to a network without additional configuration or software. Combined with a network video recorder, an IP camera can be used to construct a reliable video surveillance system.
About Pan/Tilt Cameras
A Pan/Tilt Camera has the ability to pan ("move" horizontally), or tilt ("move" vertically). IP cameras often have pan/tilt capability. A pan/tilt camera is ideal for monitoring of situations that need a continual real-time adjustment of the views.
