The Sony SNC-CS3N, fixed IP network camera is the latest addition to the company’s growing range of network cameras, which are well suited for surveillance, remote monitoring and web casting.

The camera has been designed specifically to meet the demand for a high-quality and affordable network camera, which combines high performance with other valuable features, such as choice of lenses and built-in motion detection in a compact package. 

This Sony network camera incorporates a 1/3 type IT CCD with Exwave HAD technology for superb picture quality and high sensitivity with a minimum illumination of 0.5 lx (at F1.0, 50 IRE).The high maximum frame-rate transmission of 30 fps at VGA resolution (640 x 480) allows for clear viewing of high-quality images.

The SNC-CS3N uses the industry-standard JPEG compression format for efficient distribution over a network and features analogue output for local monitoring and recording.It comes equipped with an auto iris, vari-focal lens (f=3.0 to 8.0 mm, F1.0) and also features a CS mount that enables the user to change the lens to suit different viewing requirements.

In addition, the integrated web server allows images to be viewed and controlled from a PC running a standard web browser.With its high performance and network capability, the Sony SNC-CS3N network video camera is an ideal choice where sensitivity and lens choices are required and makes remote monitoring easy and affordable.


  • Remote Monitoring or Control Over Networks The SNC-CS3N is equipped with a 100Base-TX/10Base-T (RJ-45) interface and a built-in web server, which permits a PC running a standard web browser to monitor live images and control the camera, without the need for additional software or plug-ins. Up to 50 simultaneous users can access and monitor the images of a single camera.
  • High Frame Rate The network camera produces images with a maximum frame rate of 30 fps, allowing for clear quality images to be viewed.The frame rate can be fixed or set to a variable rate that automatically adjusts to the available bandwidth.
  • Network Security Features Using the IP-filtering feature, access to the camera can be restricted to one or more groups of selected users. Up to ten different groups can be programmed by defining an IP address range for each group. Setting these groups restricts access to this IP network camera to the defined IP-address range, while denying access to all other addresses.
  • Password Protection User names and passwords can be assigned to allow four levels of access. The administrator has complete access/control of the camera, while the other three levels of access can be set to limit user privileges to functions such as viewing, trigger control, etc.
  • High Picture Quality The SNC-CS3N incorporates a 1/3 type IT (Interline Transfer) CCD with Exwave HAD technology that offers superb high picture quality with excellent sensitivity. The SNC-CS3N achieves a horizontal resolution of 480 TV lines and a minimum illumination of 0.5 lx (at F1.0,50 IRE). The image size can be selected from four modes: 736 x 480, 640 x 480, 320 x 240, and 160 x 120.
  • A High-Performance Vari-Focal Lens Is Provided The SNC-CS3N comes fitted with a CS-mount and a vari-focal lens with auto iris function, which covers the frequently used horizontal viewing angle of 91 to 36 degrees. The maximum aperture of F1.0 provides very good image quality even in low-light conditions.
    While this viewing range should cover a majority of application requirements, the user has the option of using a specific focal length to suit his or her viewing requirements using the CS mount.
  • Alarm Function If a change in luminance level is detected in the field of view, an alarm is automatically triggered. In addition, the SNC-CS3N is equipped with an alarm-input port that can receive a trigger from an external sensor.
  • Image Transfer using FTP/SMTPThe pre-/post-alarm images stored at the time of an alarm event can be transferred to an FTP server. A still image can also be sent as JPEG attachments to a specified e-mail address, enabling the user to see what happened when the alarm occurred.

The Sony SNC-CS3N network camera is affordable and excellent for use in remote monitoring, providing superb picture quality in a compact package.
