Best in class: the new Samsung SNC-B2315

The era of super-performance surveillance has dawned with the arrival of the new Samsung SNC-B2315, a dual codec D1 real-time network camera.

Referring to it as the “ultimate high-performance, high-resolution camera for security professionals” Zane Greeff, Technical Director of Elvey Security Technologies, says its wireless robustness makes it ideal for use on a wide range of sites including mines, factories, high-rise buildings and isolated power stations.

Suitable for both indoor surveillance and remote outdoor monitoring, the Samsung SNC-B2315 blends simultaneous Motion JPEG and advanced MPEG-4 video streams. This allows for infinitely flexible integration into existing and new networks with image transfer of up to 720 x 480 (D1) resolution at 30 fps (frames per second). Designed to meet growing demand for superior integrated alarm management, the camera offers pre- and post-alarm buffers, bi-directional audio support and video motion detection.

Another of state-of-the-art feature is its Wide Dynamic Range (WDR). This, says Greeff, is in essence a more sophisticated version of Back Light Compensation (BLC), which allows it to detect differences in illumination. “This means that rather than showing the viewing area at a single luminance level, it is able to increase the range of the luminance in order to prevent any noticeable differences in the pictures. This effective function provides the best image quality in its class with regard to indoor lighting conditions.”

In addition, the camera features true Day\Night capabilities able to intelligently alternate between Black and White at night and Colour in the day time, and making surveillance possible under the harshest of conditions.

Greeff adds “The B2315 has a vital role to play in terms of protecting families, staff members and property as well as preventing or reducing work-place theft and violence, verifying liability and workers' compensation claims, and apprehending dishonest employees and customers.”
