SONY has announced the release of 8 new Full-HD video security cameras into its latest line-up, the sixth generation (G6) network cameras.

Using advanced imaging technology, Sony’s G6 cameras offer security professionals clear detail and higher
visibility with excellent low-light sensitivity, ideal for a wide range of demanding applications, including city, transport and commercial surveillance.

The new G6 cameras include V-series (SNC-VB640, SNC-VB642D, SNC-VM641 and SNC-VM642R), which are reported to offer double the visibility at minimum scene thanks to the Exmor R CMOS image sensor and XDNR noise reduction algorithms, and can maintain colour integrity at 0.1 lux in colour and 0.05 lux in monochrome. 

The range has the same form factor as existing models, adds SD cards and audio interfaces in some models, video or audio data can be recorded based on alarm detection, while redundancy offers high availability even when operating on poor quality networks. V Series IR cameras now have 100m range, while E Series offer 60m. 
“High-quality imagery is at the heart of our business, which is why we continue to invest in new technologies to bring our customers the best possible images,” said Steve Charles, sales and marketing manager ANZ, Sony Video Security Solutions. 

“Investing in these technologies is all about meeting the changing needs of our customers, which is why these new solutions have been designed with features that help users improve accuracy and make quicker decisions, from improved visibility in low light to increased range.”

Sony’s latest G6 cameras are planned to be available in Asia Pacific from March 2017 onwards. ♦
