Terminology

  • * SNR1s is a proprietary index tailored to quantitatively evaluate image quality at low illuminance, which Sony has developed specifically for CMOS image sensors for security applications. See What’s SNR1s? for more details.
  • ** HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a feature that uses finer chromatic gradation for image rendering to depict more details in the over- and under-exposed regions that occur in the same image. See “High Dynamic Range (HDR) Feature” to learn about the difference between DOL HDR and Clear HDR.
  • *** NIR stands for the capacity to capture images in the near infrared spectrum. This feature realizes image capturing even in a pitch-dark location by the use of near-infrared light. Sony offers NIR imaging in all of the models below, meeting the needs in diverse applications. Furthermore, NIR technology has recently seen remarkable improvement. The identifier “NIR Enhanced (Yes)” indicates that the product is mounted with the enhanced version of NIR functionality. For more descriptions about NIR, see “Imaging Performance in the Near-infrared (NIR) Spectrum”.

SNR1s

What's SNR1s ?

Sony is introducing SNR1s [lx] as an index used to quantitatively evaluate picture quality at low illumination. SNR1s [lx] is a proprietary index advocated by Sony, and is limited to CMOS image sensors for security camera applications.
A smaller value indicates better picture quality at low illumination.
SNR1s [lx] is an acronym consisting of "SNR" (Signal-to-Noise Ratio), "1" (represents that the signal level when noise = 1 is 1), and "s" (for Security).

SNR1s [lx] Prescribed Conditions
Application Security Camera
Light Source 3200 [K]
Target Object 18% Grey
F number 1.4
Exposure time 1/60 [s]
Linear Matrix without
Signal G [e-] (Sensor Raw Output)
Noise √Shot Noise[e-]2 + Dark Noise[e-]2
Signal : Noise 1 : 1

Note:SNR1s is a new index proposed by Sony for picture quality at low illumination, and is limited to CMOS image sensors for security applications.

Schematic of SNR1s Measurement Method

  • Figure 1 shows a schematic of SNR1s measurement.
    Two 3200 [K] light sources illuminate an 18% gray chart from different directions, and dimming is performed to 100 [lx]. A camera is placed so that the distance from the gray chart to the imaging surface of the image sensor is 1 m, the sensitivity [e-] and dark noise [e-] are measured, and SNR1s [lx] is calculated using the relational equation (1). The luminance when equation (1) equals 1 is SNR1s [lx].
    For further details, contact your local Sony's sales company.

SNR1s Values of CMOS Image Sensors for Security Applications

  • SNR1s [lx] : A smaller value indicates better picture quality at low illumination.
注:
  • SNR1s is a new index proposed by Sony for picture quality at low illumination, and is limited to CMOS image sensors for security applications.
  • Sony reserves the right to change SNR1s values without prior notice.
  • Sony cannot assume responsibility for any phenomena occurring as a result of using released SNR1s values.
