Sony is well known and respected in the consumer market for its electronic products. The question, though, is how well does that carry over into their security products?
In this test of the Sony SNC-CH140, we tested their H.264 720p stream integrated with Milestone's Enterprise VMS 7.0 with device pack 4.7. Additionally, we tested their advanced lighting filters: View-DR (filter that compensates light under a wide dynamic range scene) and Visibility Enhancer (filter that automatically adjusts the gain of dark objects in a scene).
Our key findings include:
- Exceptional picture quality in wide dynamic range scenes
- Integrators should appreciate trade-offs in image optimization options
- Limited third party VMS support
A close comparison is the Panasonic WV-NP502. Also, review against other cameras in our megapixel camera test directory.
