Panasonic WV-SW115 overview

  • 1Description

The 1.3MP Outdoor Dome Camera from Panasonic is equipped with a 1.3MP progressive-scan MOS sensor that captures 720p video at 30 fps. It offers high-quality day/night surveillance even in locations with a minimum illumination of 0.6 lux (B&W) via software. This camera allows dual streaming of real-time imagery in H.264 and JPEG formats with the UniPhier system LSI platform.

The Super Dynamic, Adaptive Black Stretch technologies, and 128x wider dynamic range, ensure the visibility of subjects in dark areas of a video scene without compromising the image quality of brighter areas. The Face Super Dynamic technology ensures clear images of the human face. Furthermore, the progressive-scan sensor ensures blur-free images even when the subject is moving. Variable Image Quality on Specified Area (VIQS) technology allows the camera to have higher resolution only on specified areas of the image, which enables optimum bandwidth and storage utilization thanks to images with lower file size and bit rate.

Equipped with 3D-DNR (Digital Noise Reduction) technology, the camera filters signals that could result in grainy images. The camera also offers selectable light control modes including indoor scenes (50/60 Hz) and ELC (maximum exposure time). When movement is detected, alarm sources including VMD and Panasonic alarm command, trigger actions such as FTP image transfer and email notification, indication on browser, and Panasonic alarm protocol output. The camera has an SD/SDHC memory card slot that allows for data backup during network failure.
