New from Panasonic: Two indoor vandal resistant dome cameras extend the award winning i-Pro SmartHD range

Product Profile

PSNE launches the WV-SF346 and WV-SF342 vandal-resistant indoor network dome cameras to broaden the i-Pro SmartHD range of options for installers.

Panasonic's Uniphier® technology maximises network traffic management enabling simultaneous H.264 (High-profile) and JPEG video streams over IP for real time monitoring and high-resolution video recording. SDHC and SD memory card slots make manual recording in H.264 or JPEG possible with automated backup recording upon alarm or network failure, which assures piece of mind.

Both cameras allow for VMD (Video Motion Detector) technology, which has 4 programmable detection areas, 15 steps sensitivity level and 10 steps detection size with up to two privacy zones for masked windows or doorways. Progressive scan technology ensures clear images with reduced image tearing and motion blur and Face Wide Dynamic Range technology ensures a clear face image even during movement.

Stephen Gerrard, Country Marketing Manager PSNE, stated: "Both network dome cameras are designed with a range of indoor applications in mind. Panasonic's new technology and intelligent features ensure that the best possible image quality is achieved with specific focus on optimising facial recognition for security operatives on the floor."

The WV-SF346 also comes with ABF (Auto Back Focus), which adjusts sensor positioning to ensure an easy installation while Focus Assist aids set up in the WV-SF342. The Digital Noise Reduction feature, 3D-DNR, ensures noise reduction in various conditions whilst the vandal resistant polycarbonate dome structure is designed to survive a free fall drop from a 5kg weight; making both domes the ideal indoor security package.

The WV-SF346, supports the newly developed 1.3 megapixel high sensitivity MOS sensor with simple day/night function enabling superb low light performance at 0.3 lux (colour) and 0.2 lux (B/W). A full frame transmission up to 30fps at HD 1,280 x 960 image size means the WV-SF346 certifies precise video quality and subsequent subject recognition. The WV-SF342 also supports simple day/night function, with high 0.2 lux (Colour), 0.13 lux (B/W) and a full frame rate of up to 30 fps transmission at super high resolution SVGA/800 x 600 created by 1.3 megapixel high sensitivity MOS sensor.

These two new indoor, vandal resistant network dome cameras strengthen the Panasonic i-Pro SmartHD range and come equipped with all the attributes needed for a flexible indoor installation.
