    Sony of Canada Ltd., Canada's leading supplier of
    electronic and computer products for consumers and business, today unveiled
    seven new IP (Internet Protocol) cameras with such features such as MPEG-4
    compression, two-way audio, wireless technologies and day/night capability,
    thereby extending its leadership in the transition to IP-based surveillance.
    Sony also introduced new technologies in analog cameras, digital
    recorders and third-party enhancements to its Real Shot(TM) Manager video
    monitoring software as the result of a new open platform offering for security
    software developers.
    "IP-based surveillance brings a fundamental advance in security systems,
    and Sony continues to set the pace with our new network cameras that, together
    with our successful existing products, make for a comprehensive lineup," said
    Carlos Varela, Product Manager, Surveillance Products, Broadcast Communication
    Solutions Group, Sony of Canada Ltd. "At the same time, we continue to support
    the analog market with significant improvements brought by the latest digital

    SNC-M Series:
    Debuting one of its most versatile camera lines to date, Sony is
    introducing the SNC-M Series, an affordable range of four all-in-one, network
    cameras that incorporate built-in Web servers, network interfaces and built-in
    microphones with dual-audio capabilities in a sleek, stylish form factor. The
    M Series supports both JPEG and MPEG-4 compression formats. MPEG-4 compression
    can be used to facilitate smooth video and audio streaming over limited
    bandwidth, without compromising the quality. (320 X 240 pixel sized images
    offer a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second).
    Ideal for use in venues ranging from private residences to corporate
    settings, the M Series cameras are designed to be simple to install and
    operate -- and select models support the IEEE 802.11b standard for wireless
    operation. The cameras can be wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted or placed on a
    desktop -- and two models are equipped with pan/tilt capabilities.
    The M Series camera settings, controls and monitoring can be easily
    accomplished via an intuitive GUI (graphical user interface) on a personal
    computer using standard web browsers. Select models allow the assignment of
    user names and passwords to up to ten different user groups to permit control
    of the cameras. All models ship with plug-and-play DDNS viewer/recorder
    software for surveillance management.
    The SNC-M1, SNC-M1W, SNC-M3 and SNC-M3W are planned to be available in
    December at manufacturers suggested retail prices of $400, $475 and $600,

    As a follow-up to its successful SNC-RZ30N pan-tilt-zoom camera, Sony is
    introducing the SNC-RZ25N, which offers the option of MPEG-4 compression in
    addition to JPEG to optimize bandwidth resources. The MPEG-4 option will make
    this camera a viable solution for an even broader base of academic, corporate
    and institutional environments who want to use their existing IP networks.
    The SNC-RZ25N also offers an optimized level of sensitivity, further
    enabled by the new "Day/Night" function. During daylight hours, the camera
    acquires images in colour. As the surveillance scene darkens, the infrared
    cut-filter is automatically replaced with a clear filter and switches to
    Users will also benefit from exceptional picture quality through 1/4 type
    Exwave HAD(R) technology, audio monitoring capabilities, and a slot for
    Compact Flash or wireless networking capabilities.
    Sony's SNC-RZ25N network video camera is planned to be available in
    December at an MSRP of $1,668.

    SNC-DF Series:
    Sony's unobtrusive mini-dome cameras, popular in high-traffic areas such
    as building entrances, transportation hubs and shopping malls, are now being
    offering as IP network cameras. Like the analog versions, the SNC-DF40N and
    SNC-DF70N offer a 1/4-inch Super HAD(TM) CCD producing 480 TV lines of
    resolution. They come with a built-in CS mount, 3-8 mm auto iris vari-focal
    lens to offer a broad range of viewing options, and day/night functions for
    optimized sensitivity in light or dark environments.
    The SNC-DF40N is planned to be available in October at an MSRP of $1,233,
    and the SNC-DF70N is planned to be available in December at an MSRP of $1,475.

    SSC-E Series:
    Sony continues to make significant investments in enhancing its analog
    product offerings. The SSC-E Series colour video cameras featuring the new
    SuperExwave(TM) CCD combined with the latest advances in digital signal
    processing for day/night monitoring and surveillance applications. The new
    SuperExwave sensor extends viewing into a wider range of lighting scenarios.
    The E Series' stylish design and features such as cord covers enable the
    cameras to blend in well with the existing room décor, and a specially
    designed lens cover discreetly protects the lens from dust.
    The SSC-E453 and SSC-E473 video cameras are planned to be available in
    November, at suggested list prices of $326 and $370, respectively.

    HSR-X206 Multi-channel Recorder:
    Analog systems can add powerful IP Security capabilities by replacing
    legacy multiplexers and analog time lapse VCRs with the HSR-X206 multi-channel
    hard disk recorder, a drop-in digital upgrade for tape-based closed circuit
    security systems that adds real-time remote video monitoring and reviewing
    while lowering maintenance costs typically associated with analog VCRs.
    Sony's HSR-X206 digital recorder will be available in October at an MSRP
    of $3,625.
    Sony has opened the application program interface (API) for its Real Shot
    Manager video management software platform, building on its success by
    offering it as a common development platform for the security industry. With
    this, innovative software from across the industry can integrate seamlessly
    and easily with the Real Shot Manager platform, creating custom installations
    without the need for custom programming.
    Leading software developers ObjectVideo, Vidient, Systems and MATE
    Technologies are supporting the new platform.
