Panasonic WV-SC385 Dome Camera Specifications
Panasonic System Networks Europe is delighted to announce the release of the i-Pro SmartHD WV-SC385 Network Dome Camera, an all-new feature-packed 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 functions include a 360 degree map that provides a full 360 degree field of view, separated into eight thumbnails taken at 45 degree intervals – a click on any thumbnail easily directs the PTZ camera.
“Putting customers first requires Panasonic not only to develop new and advanced technologies, but also to design for market needs.” said Stephen Gerrard, Country Marketing Director, Panasonic System Networks Europe “The combination of high definition and PTZ functionality allows the user to capture essential details, which is at the heart of video surveillance and security.
The new i-Pro SmartHD WV-SC385 dome camera uses the Panasonic UniPhier® LSI (H.264 High Profile Format) chip to combine HD video and real-time video streaming at a smaller data size. A new 1.3 mega-pixel MOS image sensor provides high sensitivity and low power consumption. To increase the user’s system options, the camera is compatible with the Open Network Video Interface (ONVIF), while system migration is more easily facilitated with the selectable H.264 or MPEG-4 format. Super Dynamic and Adaptive Black Stretch (ABS) technologies combine to provide a dynamic range 128 times wider 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 via XML or video.
The industrial-grade PTZ mechanism of the dome model has up to 64 preset positions. Auto Tracking allows automatic panning and tilting to follow a moving subject and keep it in the center of the image. An automatic flip function allows a pan from 0 to 360 degrees. A new “Drag and Zoom” operation and a user-friendly 16-speed graphical user interface (GUI) provide improved PTZ control. There are 256 speeds available when using the camera with the Panasonic WV-CU950 Universal System Controller (with WV-ASM100 Video Management Software).
The Video Motion Detector (VMD) has four programmable detection zones, 15 stages of sensitivity and 10 stages of detection size. The privacy zone can hide up to eight privacy zones. Full duplex two-way audio enables interactive communication between the camera and the surveillance site. An 18x optical zoom combines with a 12x digital zoom to provide a 216x zoom (at VGA resolution, an additional 36x optical zoom combines with a 12x digital zoom for a 432x zoom.) The day / night function provides low sensitivity. brightness of 0.5 lux in color and 0.06 lux (B / W) at f1.6 (wide). Adaptive digital noise reduction (2D-DNR and 3D-DNR integration) ensures reduction of noise and motion blur under various conditions. Progressive scan provides clear images without motion blur or tearing, and full H.264 frame rate video can be recorded using an SD / SDH memory card.
Panasonic’s addition to the i-Pro SmartHD line, the WV-SC385 Dome Camera, covers your back with a 360-degree field of view, ensuring organizations have an unhindered security solution.
