Sony enhances video security line-up with new high sensitivity network cameras with Exmor R CMOS sensors


The eight new cameras provide cutting-edge image capture technology with minimum illumination of 0.006 lux

sony-logoSony has announces its latest line-up, the sixth generation (G6) network cameras, comprising eight new Full-HD video security cameras that deliver on the ever increasing demand for greater image clarity the video security market requires.

The new G6 cameras include:

  • V-series[1]: SNC-VB640, SNC-VB642D, SNC-VM641, SNC-VM642R
  • E-series[2]: SNC-EB640, SNC-EB642R, SNC-EM641, SNC-EM642R


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.


Further displaying Sony´s heritage in core technologies, the latest G6 cameras are equipped with high performance image sensors, lenses and image processors. They can capture images beyond the reach of conventional security cameras, providing security professionals with better visibility and greater accuracy.

This improved sensitivity is made possible with Sony’s Exmor R CMOS sensor and eXcellent Dynamic Noise Reduction (XDNR). The technologies offer optimum clarity with noise and ghost free images, allowing the new cameras to achieve the minimum illumination figure of 0.006 lux (30IRE), 0.01(50IRE)[3]. With the high sensitivity, colour integrity of images is maintained even in poorly-lit conditions allowing operators ease of identification. This low light capability is especially invaluable in applications such as city surveillance at night, which is increasingly common and a fast-growing area of demand in the security industry.

Security professionals can now capture objects in the dark from a distance of up to 100m with the V-series and up to 60m with the E-series network cameras. This extended range is possible thanks to the Exmor R sensor. Together with the powerful integrated IR illuminator, the cameras are able to capture high-quality IR images without overexposure. This industry-leading feature equips security personnel with more accurate and insightful imagery, encouraging swift and intelligent decisions.

Reacting to the increasing customer requirement for SD card recording and 2-way audio, Sony ensures that the new E-series is equipped with a stronger feature set. The SD card is a back-up option in the event of network outage where the camera loses connection. It can continue recording while the connection is being restored, providing security personnel peace of mind.

Further, the new E-series now supports 2-way audio features, providing users with remote intercom and audio recording functionality in a cost effective package, wherever it is needed.

These new features of Sony’s V and E-series range not only provide enhanced imaging technology, but also incorporate the same User Interface, usability and Network Video Management Software connectivity that is present in Sony’s existing solutions.

“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 they’re trying to capture,” said Riki Nishimura, General Manager, Business & Industrial Solutions Marketing Division, Professional Solutions Company (PSAP), Sony Electronics Asia Pacific. 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.”
