Sony X Series Camera Overview

Author: John Honovich, Published on Nov 08, 2010

Sony's latest addition to its network camera portfolio, the X series, provides HD 720p and HD 1080p models at lower price points, smaller form factors, and less features than Sony's premium V-series and the mid-tier E-series.

The X-series consists of 6 unique models including box, dome and vandal dome form factors. Like the V- and E-series models, the X-series provides a maximum resolution of 1.3MP (4:3) for its 720p models and 3.0MP for 1080p models. No X series models support IR cut-filters nor WDR functionality. Additionally, no built in IR nor IP66 options are offered.
