The WV-SC384, a feature rich PTZ i-Pro SmartHD dome camera from Panasonic

Panasonic announces the introduction of the WV-SC384 to the i-Pro SmartHD line-up. The feature rich network dome camera includes advanced control functions and intelligent GUI that allows complete unhindered surveillance. The new dome camera provides multiple H.264 (High profile) and JPEG video streams for simultaneous real-time monitoring and high-resolution recording. Pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) control features include a 360-degree map shot that provides the full 360-degree field of view, separated into eight thumbnail images taken at 45-degree intervals - clicking on any thumbnail easily directs the PTZ camera. "Putting customers first compels Panasonic not only to develop new and advanced technologies, but also to design for market needs," said Stephen Gerrard, Country Marketing Manager, Panasonic System Networks Europe "Bringing together high definition and PTZ functionality lets the user capture the essential details, which is at the core of video surveillance and security." The new i-Pro SmartHD WV-SC384 dome camera uses Panasonic UniPhier® LSI chip (H.264 high-profile format) to combine HD video and real-time video streaming at a lower data size. A new 1.3-megapixel MOS image sensor enables high sensitivity and lower power consumption. To increase user system options, the camera is Open Network Video Interface (ONVIF) compliant, while system migration is more easily facilitated with the H.264 or MPEG-4 selectable format. Super Dynamic and Adaptive Black Stretch (ABS) technologies combine to deliver 128x wider dynamic range than conventional cameras. Face Super Dynamic ensures clear images of faces, and a face-detection function detects the position of human faces and sends the information by XML or video. The dome model's industrial grade PTZ mechanism features up to 64 preset positions. Auto-tracking enables automatic pan and tilt to follow a moving subject and keep it in the centre of the image. An auto-flip function enables panning from 0 to 360 degrees. A new "Drag and Zoom" operation and 16-speed user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI) provide enhanced PTZ control. There are 256 speeds available when using the camera with Panasonic's WV-CU950 Universal System Controller (with video management software WV-ASM100). Video Motion Detector (VMD) has four programmable detection areas, 15 steps of sensitivity and 10 steps of detection size. Privacy zone can mask up to eight private areas. Full duplex bi-directional audio allows interactive communication between the camera and monitoring site. An 18x optical zoom combines with a 12x digital zoom to enable 216x zoom (in VGA resolution, 36x extra optical zoom combines with 12x digital zoom for 432x zoom.) Day/night function provides low-light sensitivity of 0.5 lux in colour and 0.06 lux (B/W) at f1.6 (wide). Adaptive Digital Noise Reduction (2D-DNR and 3D-DNR integration) ensures reduced noise and motion blur in various conditions. Progressive scan delivers clear images without motion blur or tearing, and H.264 full-frame-rate video can be recorded using an SD/SDH Memory Card. Panasonic's addition to the i-Pro SmartHD line-up, the WV-SC384 dome camera, covers your back with 360-degree field of view ensuring organisations an unhindered security solution.

Panasonic WV-SW400 and WV-SF400 i-Pro SmartHD MEGA Super Dynamic vandal resistant 360 degrees domes bring unsurpassed reliability and image quality to the Panasonic surveillance range

The latest range of i-Pro Smart HD 360 degree network dome cameras from Panasonic, the WV-SW400/WV-SF400 series, are designed with the signature Panasonic reliability and feature Mega Super Dynamic technology that delivers 128x broader dynamic range. These series are composed of the WV-SF438, WV-SF448 and WV-SW458 and 548M. All of the series has 360 degree monitoring capability with a variety of transmission modes including Wall Panorama, Double Panorama and Quad PTZ ensuring precise recording in decided areas. They also have a number of features to enhance image quality, improve the operational efficiency and reduce the burden on the network through enhanced “UniPhier” and 2 areas VIQS. The entire series provides 1080p HD images at up to 30 IPS[1] and because the camera is powered by Panasonic UniPhier®[2] technology, concurrent H.264 and JPEG streams are transmitted, enabling simultaneous real time monitoring and FULL HD recording.  Further, Prioritised Stream Control enables a priority video stream so that when multiple recorders and client PCs are simultaneously accessing the camera, frame rates are continuously maintained and quality of service is ensured for total security continuity. Additionally, face Detection and Mega Super Dynamic range technologies ensure clear and focussed facial images are captured for identification purposes. Face Detection functionality also means that when a registered suspect’s face is observed by the camera, it can automatically be sent and an alarm can be triggered through a compatible network video recorder, alerting security personnel. This effectively adds another set of eyes in a surveillance monitoring team, increasing efficiency and significantly reducing costs. The advanced SW400/SF400 series also feature VMD[3], which can be programmed to trigger email alerts and other alarm outputs when movement is detected in one of the 4 pre-selected areas.  VMD enables security personnel to automatically be notified of possible security concerns and reduce their response time. What's more, with the selectable light control modes in an indoor scene, 50Hz / 60Hz fluorescent lighting has no effect on image quality meaning setup times and costs are significantly reduced and end user satisfaction is maximised. The combination of these features with the Privacy Zone that covers up to 4 private areas such as windows or entrances / exits makes SW400/SF400 ideal where surveillance is needed in complicated site locations.  In addition to the fore-mentioned features, the WV-SF448 and WV-SW458 and 458M have Vandal Resistant capabilities and are designed to fit a variety of unique applications. The WV-SF448 features a vandal resistant mechanism for high reliability as well as a mechanical shutter. The mechanical shutter is situated above the lens and can be opened and closed as necessary. The WV-SW458 and 458M are suited for external applications as well as internal as they possess a dehumidification device as well as an Ingress Protection Rating certified at IP66, taking extreme resistance to the elements to the next level, guaranteeing total dust tightness, and the protection of the camera against even the most powerful jets of water blasted at it from any direction. This means that when located in highly inhospitable positions, even in violent storms, the WV-SW458 will provide the continuity of service needed to meet the highest expectations in the security industry. The ‘M’ version also features an M12 connector which is specifically designed to firmly secure machine-to-machine connections so that cables screw on tightly and lock in place. This enables system implementers to easily link controllers, multimedia devices and surveillance equipment. This element makes the WV-SW458M ideal for the transport vertical. With the latest addition to the Panasonic surveillance range possessing unprecedented intelligent functionality, end users have greater peace of mind and confidence that security objectives can be achieved and installers will guarantee added value for their clients.
