Z3 Technology, a leading provider of embedded video compression systems, and Sony Electronics Inc., an international leader in image sensors camera technology, announce the availability the Z3Cam-4K™ a 4K H.265 IP camera leveraging Sony’s FCB-ER8300 4K camera. The Z3Cam-4K will be demonstrated live at ASIS 2016 September 12th through 15th.
The Z3Cam-4K captures stunning video with 20x optical zoom with integrated auto focus and Sony’s 4K noise reduction algorithm. It provides crystal clear images for security, industrial, medical, broadcast, corporate, virtual reality and high detail data analytics applications. Electronics-only development kits are also available for custom PTZ or fixed camera applications.
The innovative Z3Cam-4K is the first video system capable of encoding and streaming both H.265/HEVC and H.264 video over IP in 4K resolutions. It can also send a simultaneous HD stream. ONVIF integration provides simple camera management, and it mounts easily to a tri-pod or mounting bracket.
“Sony is privileged to work with Z3 on providing the 4K optics and image capture subsystem integrated into the Z3Cam-4K. With fast auto focus, 20x optical zoom and electronic image stabilization we expect this new camera to be deployed widely in demanding commercial and industrial 4K applications,” said John Monti, Director, Sony Visual Imaging Solutions.
“The Z3Cam-4K camera provides high quality, low bit rate video to be streamed over IP networks at 4K resolutions,” Aaron Caldwell, CEO, Z3 Technology said. “In the past the bandwidth requirements were too high for many of our customers to make the switch to 4K. The Z3Cam-4K solves this dilemma by taking advantage of H.265 compression technology that uses low power and bandwidth.”
Z3 Technology is demonstrating the Z3Cam-4K at ASIS 2016, a security solutions trade show, in Orlando, Florida September 12 – 15, 2016. Schedule a private meeting with Z3 by contacting [email protected].
