The Sony SNC-M1 Fixed IP Network Camera with Audio is an all-in-one mini network color video camera that allows you to monitor any room in your home from the convenience of your PC's browser. With an IP server and web page embedded in the camera itself, you don't need any special software, and a simple wizard makes set-up a breeze.

Sony's browser-based monitoring software is simple, yet powerful.

The camera unit can be easily installed on a wall or a ceiling using basic hardware and tools.
Featuring the MPEG-4 compression format, as well as the more widely used JPEG compression format, this camera provides smooth, streaming video and audio over networks, including those with low bandwidth.

Clear, Smooth Resolution
Featuring MPEG-4 data compression, as well as the widely-used JPEG compression formats, the Sony SNC-M1 offers clear, smooth reproduction of live moving images at frame rates up to 30 frames per second (fps) at 320x240 resolution. You can choose the compression format you prefer, as well as the image size. The 320 x 240-sized images offer a maximum frame rate of 30 fps, while 640 x 480-sized images provide clearer and more detailed viewing. What's more, the camera automatically adjusts the video bit rate to meet changing network conditions, allowing you to view your video images even at low bandwidths.

Audio Monitoring
Incorporating a built-in microphone, the Sony SNC-M1 also offers high-quality audio monitoring. For enhanced audio pick-up from the camera's location, the camera includes an external microphone jack, while a speaker output allows you to communicate with the remote site. This added feature greatly expands the capability of your monitoring abilities.

All-in-One Network Camera
The camera's built-in web server enables you to monitor live images and control cameras on any PC running a standard web browser without having to install any additional software. To begin monitoring your location, you simply connect the camera to a network, and you can immediately access the remote images on your networked PC.

Network Security Features
To enhance your monitoring options, the Sony SNC-M1 allows up to 20 simultaneous users (20 in JPEG mode and 10 in MPEG-4 mode) to monitor the images remotely. And when an alarm is triggered by the motion detection function (in MPEG-4 mode), a preset message can be sent to up to three e-mail addresses. This gives you the confidence of knowing that even when you're not viewing the images from your home directly, your home is still being closely monitored.

User-Friendly Controls and Flexible Installation
With the SNC-M1, Sony has made home monitoring as easy as possible, thanks to a user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI) on the PC monitor. In addition, the GUI background can be customized according to your preferences. Whether you mount the camera on a wall, a ceiling, or on your desktop using the supplied camera stand, you'll be assured of peace of mind any time of day or night.
