Panasonic introduces the new WV-SC385 i-Pro SmartHD megapixel dome camera

Panasonic System Networks Europe is excited to announce the release of i-Pro SmartHD WV-SC385 network dome camera, an entirely new feature rich Super Dynamic HD model with advanced control functions. The new dome camera provides multiple H.264 (High profile) and JPEG video streams for simultaneous real-time monitoring and high-resolution recording. 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-SC385 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-SC385 dome camera, covers your back with 360-degree field of view ensuring organisations an unhindered security solution.

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.

Panasonic introduces the WV-SP509 full HD network camera
Panasonic introduces the WV-SP509 full HD network camera

The WV-SP509 IP static camera provides high quality images and a wealth of features. Using a newly developed MOS sensor, the SP509 provides high quality full HD images across multiple H.264 and JPEG streams. Using MEGA Super Dynamic technology to deliver 128x dynamic range, the day/night image quality of the SP509 is ideal in all conditions. Packed with features, the SP509 is the most intelligent camera to date. Face detection allows the camera to adjust product focus to capture a person in shot and also use the XML data to trigger an alarm upon detection if using a compatible recorder. Auto back focus (ABF) allows easy installation, reducing installation time and ensuring perfect image. VIQS (variable image quality on specified area) is the latest innovation to the Smart HD range, allowing the camera to have higher resolution only on specified areas of the image, meaning lower bandwidth. The WV-SP509 provides all the latest Smart HD innovations, ensuring is fit for all in and outdoor needs*. Also, ONVIF compliant this camera is a must for a wide range of applications. Key features: Progressive scan 3.1 Megapixel MOS Sensor.
