  • HD (720p) resolution

    Detailed 720p HD progressive images. Progressive acquisition (as opposed to interlace) means that images are more stable to view, contain more information and compress more efficiently - without "interlace artefacts".

  • Exmor™ CMOS Sensor

    High resolution CMOS sensor with low noise characteristics for improved image acquisition. Derived from Sony's broadcast product range, Exmor™ is one of the highest quality image sensors available.

  • Triple Codec Network Operation

    This multi-codec camera supports three compression formats: JPEG, the best choice of high-quality still images

  • Intelligent Motion Detection

    The built-in IMD function can trigger a variety of actions, such as the storage and transfer of images or the activation of an external device through its output relays. False alarms caused by noise and repeated motion patterns are minimized thanks to an advanced Sony algorithm. Plus, when used in conjunction with DEPA-enabled recorders or software, a multitude of filter functions are available. These allow you to initiate alarms based on more specific movements, such as passing a virtual borderline.

  • Stream Squared function

    An incredibly useful function that allows simultaneous streaming of two 4:3 aspect ratio videos in user-selectable SD resolutions. You can select the entire image or a portion of the image from the original view and resize to SD resolution. With this feature, the SNC-DH120 can replace two SD cameras installed in the same line of view.

  • DEPA

    The SNC-DH120 offers intelligent video analytics, based on the Sony DEPA platform. DEPA is a combined function of the intelligence built in to the camera and rules/filters that determine which images should be recorded or when an alarm should be triggered. Using the network camera Intelligent Motion Detection (IMD) function, 'tagged' objects and their associated metadata, including object position, are sent either to the NSR Series recorder or the IMZ-RS400 Series software. These products then use the metadata, together with filters, to analyze object movement and to perform a predefined action, such as image recording or alarm triggering. This method of distributed processing minimizes server workload, network bandwidth, and storage requirements.

  • Power Over Ethernet (PoE) capability

    Supporting Power over Ethernet (PoE), the SNC-DH120 can be powered using the same Ethernet cable it uses for data transfer. This feature greatly reduces the physical infrastructure costs and speed of deployment.

  • ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) compliance

    The ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) defines a common protocol for the exchange of information between network video devices including automatic device discovery and video streaming. Allows interoperability between network video devices.
