At 720p Full-HD resolution, progressive scan images are produced at no less than 30 frames per second, enabling security professionals to see every detail and movement necessary to provide the best possible surveillance recording and monitoring and resulting in better delivery of total security management.
MEGA SuperDynamic Range and a Host of Intelligent Features
With Panasonic MEGA SuperDynamic Range and ABS (Adaptive Black Stretch) technology on board, SW316 delivers 128x wider dynamic range compared with conventional surveillance cameras.
