Panasonic BL-VT164WP overview

  • 1Description

The Panasonic BLVT164WP Pan-Tilt Network HD Camera (Wireless) with a 1 MP CMOS image sensor offers high-quality imagery with high sensitivity. This network camera allows dual streaming of real-time imagery in H.264 and JPEG formats at a resolution of 1,280 x 720p and up to 30 fps. Transmission for 2 streams can be individually set in the same compression method.

720p HD images up to 30 fps
1 MP high sensitivity CMOS sensor
Multiple H.264 (High profile) and JPEG streams ensure simultaneous real-time monitoring and high resolution recording by "UniPhier," Panasonic's proprietary System LSI platform
Full frame (Up to 30 fps) transmission at 1,280 x 720p resolution
High sensitivity with Day & Night (Electrical) Function: 0.9 lux (Color) and 0.6 lux (B&W) at F2.8
DNR (Digital Noise Reduction): 3D-DNR ensures noise reduction in various conditions
Progressive scan ensures clear images with less motion blur and no tearing even when the subject is moving
Electronic Sensitivity Enhancement: Auto (up to 16x) / off
Selectable light control modes: Indoor scene (50 Hz) / Indoor scene (60 Hz) / ELC (maximum exposure time)
Indoor scene (50 Hz / 60 Hz): Flicker caused by fluorescent lighting will be automatically compensated
ELC (maximum exposure time): Lighting is controlled automatically by adjusting the shutter speed in the range of ELC
1.5x extra zoom under VGA resolution
8x digital zoom controlled by browser
VMD (Video Motion Detection) with 4 programmable detection areas, sensitivity level of 15 steps, and detection size of 10 steps

Camera Title Display: Up to 20 alphanumeric characters on the browser
Alarm sources including VMD and Panasonic alarms command can trigger actions such as FTP image transfer, email notification, indication on browser, and Panasonic alarm protocol output
JPEG image compression ratio can be changed by an alarm so that higher quality image can be provided
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
H.264 maximum bitrate/client and total bitrate control allows flexible network traffic management. Frame rate priority mode controls bitrate and compression ratio to provide the specified frame rate
Internet Mode: H.264 images can be transmitted over HTTP protocol
Multi-Language: English / Italian / French / German / Spanish / Russian / Chinese / Japanese
IPv4 / IPv6 protocol supported
Supports SSL, DDNS (viewnetcam, RFC2136)
Still images (JPEG) can be viewed on mobile phones via Internet
ONVIF-compliant model
Low-profile design for discrete installation
Pan / tilt and Preset Map Shot functions enable wide-range monitoring (Horizontal angle 139°; vertical angle 76°)
Easy installation: Easy to adjust directions
Interactive Communication with Audio: By using the audio output connector and the microphone in the connector, receiving audio from the cameras on a PC and transmitting audio from the PC to the cameras is possible
Smartphone Monitoring : Direct camera control from smartphones
Wireless LAN Function (IEEE802.11 n/b/g): Camera images can be monitored over a wireless router
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) Function: WPS enables the camera to automatically obtain information pertaining to connection and security configurations of the wireless router. WPS can be configured by pressing the WIRELESS button (WPS indicator) (PBC method) or entering an 8 digit pin code (Pin code method)
