Robust housing with all-round vision

The SNC-HMX72 is an outdoor 360-degree Hemispheric-view Camera. The camera's fixed lens and high-resolution 12 megapixel CMOS sensor offer full 360-degree panoramic surveillance with excellent image quality and complete area coverage - providing full situational awareness plus simultaneous Electronic pan/tilt/zoom (ePTZ) views in high resolution.

The camera lens captures a circular image that can be transformed using in-camera dewarping into several different distortion-free rectangular views.

Built-in Essential Video Analytics can trigger relevant alerts and quickly retrieve data on full hemispheric overview, making the SNC-HMX72 ideal for applications such as people counting, wrong way detection or smart data for other use cases.

The camera is suitable for outdoor installation where movement is a constant, such as parking lots, school areas and shopping mall.


High resolution 12 megapixel sensor

The camera's high resolution CMOS sensor captures smooth, detailed panoramic video images at 30fps.

Electronic pan/tilt/zoom (ePTZ) and Regions of Interest

Remote Electronic pan/tilt/zoom (ePTZ) allows selection and monitoring of specific Regions of Interest (ROI) at high resolution, ensuring that important details aren't lost even when using electronic zoom. Wide area situational awareness is still retained even when zoomed in on a particular object of interest.

Choice of view modes

Enjoy greater monitoring flexibility with choice of Panoramic, Quad, ePTZ and Corridor viewing modes.

Great pictures in any environment

Nine configurable scene modes optimise exposure settings for wide range of daytime or night applications.

In-camera dewarping

In-camera edge dewarping provides three simultaneous video channels (full image circle, dewarped view, ePTZ).

Essential video analytics

Built-in analytics allow the camera to reliably detect, track and analyse objects, providing alerts in response to predefined alarm rules. Since the camera continuously monitors the full image circle, alarms are still generated even when the viewer is zoomed in on a different region of the image.

Support Detect, Observe, Recognize and Identify

Complies with Detect, Observe, Recognize and Identify specifying the camera's ability to distinguish parking in a no parking zone or restricted area.

Record exactly what you want

The full resolution circular image is always recorded, even if only a portion of the scene is being viewed. Retrospective dewarping can be performed on the entire area, with zooming in on any region of interest. Alternatively, only relevant parts of the scene can be recorded to reduce bitrates significantly.

Intelligent Dynamic Noise Reduction

Intelligently distinguishes between noise and relevant image information, reducing bitrate without compromising video quality.

Area-based encoding

Adjust compression for user-definable regions, prioritising bandwidth for important parts of the scene.

Outstanding dynamic range

Wide 92dB dynamic range (plus additional 16dB combined with Intelligent Auto Exposure) captures crucial image detail, even in high-contrast scenes with extreme lighting levels.

Priority exposure control

Optimise image quality by prioritising exposure calculation on selected image areas.

Intelligent Auto Exposure

Get perfect pictures in every situation, with front light and backlight compensation that adapts to changing light conditions.

Ideal for outdoor installation

The camera's robust design is ideal for outdoor installation. It gives a single solution for outdoor environments with an integrated IP66 and IK10 design. Multiple mounting accessories are available for fitting on the wall, pipe or eave. Power-over-Ethernet connection simplifies integration.

Edge recording

Insert an optional memory card and store up to 2TB of local alarm recording. Pre-alarm recording reduces network bandwidth.

Secure access

Supports password protection with three levels and 802.1x authentication.

Seamless system integration

Conforms to ONVIF Profile S, ONVIF Profile T, ONVIF Profile G specifications, guaranteeing interoperability with other network video. Third-party integrators can directly access the camera's internal features.
