A business-use digital camera for use at worksites, featuring enhanced intranet data management, wireless communications and security functions

G900SE

TOKYO, February 22, 2019 -RICOH COMPANY, LTD. and RICOH IMAGING COMPANY, LTD. are pleased to announce the launch of the RICOH G900SE, a business-use digital camera designed to be highly resistant to water, dust, shock and chemicals. It's ideal for use in demanding worksites subject to rain, dust and dirt, and in industries such as construction, disaster relief and healthcare. It supports Bluetooth® and wireless LAN connections, and is compatible with NFC (Near Field Communication) cards (FeliCa-, Mifare- and ISO1443-standard, Type A/B non-contact IC cards).

Introduced as the successor to the popular RICOH G800SE (launched in November 2014), the RICOH G900SE has been designed as the function-expanded sister model of the RICOH G900, a camera also being released today. It will be marketed mainly through RICOH's OA products sales channels.

While upgrading the compatibility of Camera Memo functions and security features, the camera also incorporates a host of new data management functions requested by G800SE users, including: (1) use of a computer-encrypted digital certificate compatible with the Enterprise Wi-Fi system; (2) export of original XML data files; and (3) upgraded camera management features, such as firmware updates and camera setting changes via intranet.

The RICOH G900SE is a digital image-capture, image-management tool highly effective at high-security worksites, infrastructure facilities engaged in electricity, gas and water supplies and road maintenance, disaster relief sites, and public institutions such as local governments, police, fire stations and hospitals.

Main Features

1.Enhanced Bluetooth® and wireless LAN functions, and compatibility with NFC cards

・Since the G900SE supports Bluetooth® (versions 3.0/4.2 BLE) and wireless LAN (IEEE802.11 a/b/g/n/ac 2.4/5GHz) connections, it assures wireless, high-speed data transmission of captured images to a broader choice of devices, ranging from PCs and smartphones to intranet systems.

・When coupled with an external GPS unit, barcode reader or laser distance meter supporting Bluetooth® (versions 3.0 and 4.0) connection, the G900SE lets the user attach acquired data to images.

・The G900SE supports security-enhanced Enterprise Wi-Fi systems. It also supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup™) for easy setting of wireless LAN protocols.

・The G900SE is compatible with NFC (Near Field Communication) cards (FeliCa-, Mifare- and ISO1443-standard, Type A/B non-contact IC cards). Simply by holding an NFC card in front of the camera, the user can activate or release the Camera Lock function.

・By creating a user list on the camera in advance, the G900SE allows the user to link the Camera Memo function with data stored on an NFC card. For instance, users can attach their personal names contained in the user list to their images, simply by holding a corporate identification card in front of the camera.

2.Upgraded data management functions in connection with intranet systems

・When using multiple cameras connected to an intranet system, the user can update all of them automatically and simultaneously by loading each camera's firmware version update information, camera menu settings and Camera Memo list files onto an intranet server. This setup can also be performed using an SD card.

・The user can automatically synchronize the camera clock with the server's time.

3.Enhanced security features, such as Camera Lock function

・The G900SE lets the user restrict use of the camera's operations by locking some of functions from a list of menu items, including camera access, menu access, internal memory viewing, USB connection, SDWO card usage, and WEB service access. The camera can be unlocked using the camera's onscreen keyboard or barcode reader, or an NFC card.

・Two separate passwords can be set -- one for the user, and another for the administrator -- to restrict camera operations. The administrator, for instance, can create a personal password to lock the menu access to restrict the use of certain functions at worksites and prevent the user from accidentally changing camera settings during shooting; the user can create another password to lock camera access to prevent a third party from using the camera.

・The G900SE also allows the user to set a password for each SDHC- or SDXC-type memory card. Even when an SD card is lost or stolen, this password protection prevents the disclosure of images stored on the card to outsiders.

4.Enhanced Camera Memo function to greatly reduce the workload needed for post-shooting data management

・The G900SE's Camera Memo function lets the user attach a text (100 items max.; up to 128 letters per item) or an audio file (30 seconds max.), which has been previously created on the camera or computer, to a captured image. The user can also browse reference images compatible with the Camera Memo function, such as plans or blueprints, on the LCD monitor, after selecting the desired subject from a list of as many as 999 memo contents.

・In combination with the barcode scanning function, the Camera Memo function makes it effortless to attach barcode information to camera memo data.

・Using the included EX-2 application software, the user can integrate image categorizations and file names into camera memo data, making it possible to greatly reduce the post-shooting workload. The camera also allows for the output of data stored as an XML file in the desired format, to improve the interface with databases.

5.Heavy-duty, business-use construction (identical to the base model RICOH G900) for use in demanding worksites

・Despite its compact, lightweight design, the G900SE incorporates a protective reinforced glass element to the front surface of its lens and a number of protectors at crucial parts of the body. Its rugged body is shockproof against a fall from heights of up to 2.1 meters,* dustproof (equivalent to IPX6 or JIS Class 6), cold-resistant to temperatures as low as -10°C, and crushproof against weights of up to 100kgf (kilogram force).** Thanks to this heavy-duty construction, the G900SE performs superbly and dependably in harsh, demanding conditions of various worksites.
* Measured using RICOH-original testing standards (from a height of 2.1 meters, onto a surface of 5cm-thick plywood, and with the camera's power on), conforming to Method 516-5-Shock of the MIL-Standard 810F.
** Measured using RICOH-original testing standards.

・This business-use model is also designed to be highly resistant to chemicals, such as ethanol or the sodium hypochlorite chlorine dioxide solutions used as fungicidal food additives.

・The G900SE incorporates a GPS module which receives signals from Japan's quasi-zenith satellite system Michibiki and Russia's GLONASS (global navigation satellite system) in addition to U.S. GPS satellites, and an electronic compass which covers 360 degrees in 16 directions.

・Positioned around the circumference of the lens barrel, a six-LED Ring Light unit is useful for capturing well-defined, close-up images of such miniscule subjects as microscopic components, scratches and cracks.

・The G900SE's CALS mode handles all reporting needs, by providing functions conforming to a range of electronic submission guidelines, including those proposed by Japan's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.*
* A pixel count (approx. one million pixels) sufficient to legibly render writing on a whiteboard.

・The camera's transparency guide allows the user to recall a previously captured image on the LCD monitor, and use it as a template for the effortless capture of a new image with the identical composition.

・The Image Clipping function allows the user to check two related images -- such as a worksite photo and an image of survey data -- on a computer screen.

・The G900SE features a large, high-resolution 3.0-inch LCD monitor with 3:2 proportions and approximately 1,040,000 dots.

・By selecting specific outline fonts,* the user can print the text displayed on the monitor at optimal size and in a legible typeface.
* RICOH RT fonts.

・The G900SE has 6.5GB of built-in memory, which allows for the capture of as many as 856 images at the largest image size. This is convenient when the user forgets a memory card, or when the memory card has reached its full capacity.

・The G900SE provides 4K-resolution movie recording capability (3840 x 2160 pixels, 30fps frame rate) in the H.264 format.

・The Electronic Level provides for a high-precision check on the LCD monitor of the camera's horizontal and vertical inclination.

・The G900SE is compatible with FlashAir™ SD memory cards, and allows the user to activate or disengage wireless LAN communications.

・By mounting the optional DW-5 Wide Conversion Lens (currently available on the market), the user can expand the camera's focal length to 22mm (in the 35mm format) at wide-angle end.

・The G900SE accepts the O-RC1 Waterproof Remote Control (currently available on the market).
