The latest i-Pro Smart HD network dome camera from Panasonic, the WV-SF138 is designed with signature Panasonic high reliability and features Mega Super Dynamic technology that delivers 128x broader dynamic range. Face Detection and Mega Super Dynamic range technologies ensure clear and well focusssed facial images are always captured for consistently intelligible IDs. A further capability of SF138’s Face Detection functionality means when a registered suspect face is observed by the camera head, XML data can automatically be sent to trigger an alarm in a compatible network video recorder alerting security personnel. The advantage this functionality brings to a security operation team is by effectively adding another set of eyes in a surveillance monitoring team, efficiencies are increased and costs are significantly reduced.
The ONVIF compliant SF138 provides 1080p HD images at up to 30 IPS and because the camera is powered by Panasonic UniPhier technology, concurrent H.264 and JPEG streams are transmitted meaning simultaneous real time monitoring and HD recording is possible. 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.
The advanced SF138 also features VMD, which can be programmed to trigger FTP image transfers, email alerts and other alarm outputs when motion images are detected in 4 areas with 15 sensitivity and 10 detection size levels. VMD enables security personnel to automatically be notified of possible security concerns and this take faster responsive action. 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.
SF138’s Wide Coverage capability ensures precise recording in targeted areas with a horizontal range of 100 and a vertical of 81. This in combination with the Privacy Zone that covers up to 2 private areas such as windows or entrances / exits makes SW158 ideal where surveillance is needed in complicated site locations. 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.
