The Panasonic WV-SC588 Super Dynamic Full HD Indoor/Outdoor Day/Night PTZ Dome Network Camera features a 30x optical zoom lens that allows you to capture quality images that do not lose detail even when enlarged. This camera also features Ex optical zoom function that offers up to 90x optical zoom and up to 1080x zoom when using together with the digital zoom (12x)..


High Reliability and Smooth Pan/Tilt Mechanism
  • 360° endless panning and tilting between -25° and 205° are available, thanks to the high-performance pan/tilt mechanism
  • Wide range monitoring can be performed only with a single camera
  • Panning/tilting speed is widely adjustable between 0.065°/sec and 120°/sec when manually controlling the speed
  • Auto pan function allows you to keep the camera rotating horizontally when needed (lens direction)


Preset Position
  • Desired camera direction can be registered as a preset position and the camera will move to the registered preset position only by clicking the corresponding preset button
  • Up to 256 preset positions can be registered


Preset Position Map-Shot
  • Thumbnail images representing 8 preset positions can be displayed in another window
  • By clicking a thumbnail image, a live image from the corresponding preset position will be displayed


360° Map-Shot
  • Camera rotates 45° horizontally 8 times and 8 thumbnail images can be displayed in another window
  • By clicking a thumbnail image, the camera will move to a position corresponding to the selected lens direction and a live image from that direction will be displayed


Coverless Dome and Dust-Resistant Design
  • Thanks to the coverless dome structure, the camera can capture subjects directly and provide clearer images without any noise
  • With a dust-resistant design, the gears inside the camera are covered


30x Optical Zoom, 90x Ex Optical Zoom
  • 30x optical zoom lens allows you to capture quality images that do not lose detail even when enlarged
  • Ex optical zoom function offers up to 90x optical zoom, and up to 1080x zoom when using together with the digital zoom (12x)


Advanced Auto Tracking
  • Auto tracking function with simultaneous panning, tilting, and zooming is available
  • When a motion is detected in a registered monitoring area, the camera will track the motion (object) and capture the images


High Resolution (1080p Full HD Images up to 30 fps)
  • Equipped with a 2.4 Mp high sensitivity MOS sensor, this camera delivers high-resolution 2.4 Mp JPEG (1920 x 1080) and Panasonic high-profile H.264 compression Full HD (1920 x 1080) 30 fps images to meet a wide range of surveillance requirements
  • JPEG/H.264 multiple streaming transmission is supported
  • A minimum illumination of 0.5 lux allows you to capture color images even in minimal lighting
  • Electronic Sensitivity Enhancement and Day/Night features enhance the capability of capturing images in low light even further to 0.03 lux (Color) / 0.004 lux (B&W) when filming in the dark, making the camera suitable for 24-hour surveillance


High Sensitivity with Day/Night Function (IR)
  • Camera combines high sensitivity design and electronic sensitivity enhancement functions, enabling you to capture color images even in low light conditions
  • Day/Night Switching feature automatically switches the camera from color to B&W in low light conditions, making it suitable for 24-hour surveillance


Face Detection with Super Dynamic Technology
  • Mega Super Dynamic function corrects illumination difference in images, making it easier to see objects in natural conditions when monitoring and recording
  • Detects human faces and makes them easy to identify


Fog and Smoke Reduction
  • Improved visibility of images in fog or smoke using Fog / Smoke reduction function


2-Area VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified Area)
  • Data volume of the overall video can be reduced by filming sections with the movements that need to be monitored in high definition while filming unchanging sections in low resolution
  • Two areas (total of up to 40% of the overall image) can be indicated as high-resolution monitoring sections


Combination of Enhanced UniPhier and VIQS Function
  • Data volume can be reduced by using the Enhanced UniPhier and 2-area VIQS functions
  • Reducing the data volume decreases the load on the network and also uses less space on the disc in the recorder, allowing more images to be stored with the same settings


Various Transmission Modes
  • Allows you to select from 4 modes to suit conditions such as the image being filmed and the monitoring environment, allowing for optimal performance for image quality, movement, network load reduction, recording space, and more
  • Constant bitrate provides superior picture quality
  • Up to 30 fps frame rate lets you capture object’s movement, which changes the settings according to the network conditions
  • Advanced VBR (Variable Bitrate) secures recording space on the recorder while maintaining a constant image quality and can even film complex scenes without decreasing the image quality


Privacy Zone Masking of 32 Areas
  • Sections within the capture area that you do not want to capture or that must not be captured can be masked
  • Mask is applied to the camera so that the masked area does not appear on the monitoring screen and is also not recorded in the data stored on the recorder
  • Up to 32 privacy zones can be set


SDXC Memory Card Edge Recording
  • An SD memory card can be installed in the camera to record images
  • Camera can be set to record images on the SD memory card for situations where a network problem causes a loss of communication between the camera and the recorder, or when an alarm is detected


Smartphone, Tablet PC Monitoring
  • Monitoring can even be done from smartphones or tablet computers
  • Images are optimized to suit the screen, which makes it possible to monitor an area even while away or in transit
  • Supports iPad, iPhone, iPod touch (iOS 4.2.1 or later), and Android mobile terminals


Functions of Motion Detection, Sound Detection, and Alarm Detection
  • When a motion or a sound is detected in an area registered on the monitoring window or detected by a sensor connected to the external interface, it is possible to make the camera display the [Alarm occurrence indication] button on the Live page, notify the alarm occurrences to the device connected to an alarm output connector, save images on the SD memory card, automatically send images to an ftp server, notify the detections to the administrator by an email, and notify the alarm occurrences to the designated IP address (Panasonic alarm protocol notification)


Additional Features
  • Super Dynamic and ABS (Adaptive Black Stretch) technologies deliver 128x wide dynamic range
  • High sensitivity with Day & Night (IR) function: 0.5 lux (Color), 0.06 lux (B&W) at F1.6
  • VIQS function can be set on a preset position (1 to 8) (In order to configure a VIQS area outside of preset areas, select except the preset positions)
  • 3D DNR (Digital Noise Reduction) ensures noise reduction in various conditions
  • Progressive scan ensures clear images with less motion blur and no tearing even when the subject is moving
  • Selectable light control modes: Outdoor scene / indoor scene (50 Hz) / indoor scene (60 Hz) / fix shutter
  • Indoor scene (50 Hz / 60 Hz): Flicker caused by fluorescent lightning will be automatically compensated
  • PTZ operation can be managed smoothly on the user-friendly GUI with a 16-speed pan/tilt functionality and the intuitive Drag and Zoom operation, enabling finer control
  • Industrial-grade Pan / Tilt / Zoom mechanism for high reliability
  • VMD (Video Motion Detection) with 4 programmable detection areas, 15-step sensitivity level, and 10-step detection size
  • Camera Title Display: Up to 20 alphanumeric characters on the browser
  • Full duplex, bi-directional audio allows an interactive communication between the camera site and the monitoring site
  • JPEG image compression ratio can be changed by an alarm so that higher quality image can be delivered
  • Prioritized Stream Control: One of the video streams can be prioritized when multiple recorders or client PCs are accessing the camera, so that the recorder or the client PC can maintain the frame rate
  • SDXC/SDHC/SD Memory card slot for manual recording (H.264 / JPEG), alarm recording (H.264 / JPEG), and backup upon network failure (JPEG)
  • H.264 maximum bit rate / client and total bit rate control allow flexible network traffic management
