Panasonic, a leading company of video surveillance cameras and solutions, announced two fixed network cameras based on a new, versatile design. The new, innovative fixed cameras, WV-SPN631 and WV-SPN611, offer simplicity of choice, ease of management and a low total cost of ownership (TCO) as well as the benefits of exceptional video quality and advanced functionality. By attaching various extension units to these high-performance cameras, their versatility increases, allowing them to perform various roles for new uses. For example, an IR-LED extension unit turns a fixed camera into a fixed day and night camera.
The WV-SPN631 network camera features Full HD 1080p at up to 60fps, while the WV-SPN611 supports HD 720p at up to 60fps. Both WV-SPN631 and WV-SPN611 network cameras include Enhanced Super Dynamic (an industrial leading 133dB wide dynamic range), high sensitivity with the latest MOS sensor and Multi process Noise Reduction (MNR), a suite of advanced image processing technologies, an optional intelligent Video Motion Detection (i-VMD), dual SD memory card slots for local recording, two-way audio capability for remote control situations and more.
Two extension units are available. By attaching theWV-SPN6FRL1 IR-LED unit, the cameras acquire the ability to capture clear images in low light or complete darkness, illuminating around 30m (100 feet) with infrared (IR) light. The WV-SPN6R481 RS-485 Output unit enables the cameras to be installed on a 3rd party’s pan-tilt positioner, converting control signal from IP to RS-485.
Additionally, the WV-SPN631 and WV-SPN611 fixed cameras meet the latest ONVIF Profile G for storage and retrieval as well as ONVIF Profile S for IP-based video systems.
