WiseNet2 DSP From Samsung
The chipset includes a wide dynamic range operation designed for poor lighting conditions. Capable of displaying multiple resolutions from CIF (352 x 288), through to 16:9 format 1080p full HD, and up to three-megapixel, all three models support dual-streaming of video using H.264 and MPEG compression.The cameras can be set up to simultaneously be used for real-time monitoring, mobile monitoring, high quality or high-efficiency recording, SD memory recording and email notification, Samsung said. Samsung’s Smart Codec compression technology also allows specific areas of interest within a scene to be captured at a higher resolution than the rest of a scene. “This means that areas such as doorways, human faces, or windows are transmitted or recorded at full resolution,” Samsung said, “while other areas within the scene are reduced to save file sizes and put the user firmly in control of bandwidth management.”Four point polygonal privacy zones, bi-directional audio support and Power over Ethernet have also been built into the models, while lens focusing can be controlled via the network using the cameras’ manual and one-shot auto focus function incorporated into the SND-7080(F) and SNV-7080.Other features include progressive scan technology, designed to provide sharper edges on moving subjects and vehicles in order to enhance image quality. It is most noticeable on paused images, providing picture-perfect stills of, for example, number plates without any blurring, Samsung said.Third generation Samsung Super Noise Reduction technology has also been added, designed to allow a colour image to be captured in much lower lighting conditions than traditionally possible and also to eliminate image noise in low light conditions without creating blur or ghosting. According to Samsung, this can save up to 70 per cent recording space on a recording device. The cameras are also compatible with Samsung’s licence-free NET-i viewer software, which allows remote viewing, control and administration of single or multiple site security systems via a PC worldwide, users can also access applications through iPOLiS iPhone and Android devices.
