Samsung introduces new H.264 network speed dome camera range
Samsung has introduced a new series of network speed dome cameras which are collectively
designed to provide a solution for airports, ports, car parks, industrial estates and retail parks, as well
as a wide range of other environments where high performance PTZ functionality is required.
All four new ONVIF compliant models, which incorporate Samsung’s highly acclaimed SV-5 DSP
chipset, are able to capture 4CIF resolution images at 25 frames per second and feature Progressive
Scan to optimise the high quality video capture of moving objects, making it possible to read car
number plates, for example, without a motion blur effect.
The SNP-3371 is equipped with a powerful 37x optical zoom as is its weatherproof counterpart the
SNP-3371TH, which has an object Auto-Tracking feature and is supplied in an integrated housing for
easy installation. The SNP-3302 has a 30x zoom capability and the housed version, the SNP-3302H,
is IP66 rated.
“These new speed dome cameras offer a number of significant additional features compared to
previous models including Power over Ethernet (PoE+ and hPoE) which can power a device without
the need for a local power supply and thereby reduce installation time and costs,” said Tim Biddulph,
IP Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. “They also utilise H.264 compression to
minimise bandwidth requirements with the option of using MPEG-4 or MJPEG compression. This
means that customers have the flexibility to choose to simultaneously transmit up to ten different
streams of images to multiple locations at various frame rates, including real time, at different
All four models incorporate true Day/Night cameras with an infra-cut filter and, with the benefit of a
high end 600 TVL CCD, work extremely well in low light applications, The cameras are equipped with
Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology which compensates for backlight problems 160 times more
effectively than standard BLC. They also feature an Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) capability that
includes an Appear/Disappear function which can detect the movement of objects, as well as optical
tripwire and enter/exit direction detection.
As well as those features Samsung users have come to expect, such as third generation Samsung
Super Noise Reduction (SSNRIII), polygonal privacy masking, multi-language on-screen display
(OSD) and Bi-directional audio support, all of the models can be controlled by video management
software developed by leading third party developers such as Exacq, Griffid, Ipronet, Milestone and
An extensive full range of accessories and brackets provide the option of wall, pole, parapet, pendant,
corner and in-ceiling mounts.
Available from all Samsung distributors, the new speed domes are offered with full support services
from Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd, including free system design, free technical support and a full
