Panasonic WV-SFN480 overview

  • 1Description

The WV-SFN480 i-PRO ULTRA 9 MP 360° Indoor Network Dome Camera from Panasonic is built on Panasonic's 12MP 4K ULTRA HD engine. The camera produces a 9MP 3K x 3K fisheye image at 15fps and a 4MP fisheye image at 30fps in H.264 for high resolutions at standard frame rates, ensuring bright images under any lighting condition. In addition, its Ultra 4K HD engine allows multiple levels of zooming without resolution loss. The camera's 1/2" 12MP image sensor and F1.9 large diameter lens provides sharp and natural color reproduction with strong low light performance, less than 0.3 lux in color and black-and-white.

The ULTRA 360 camera is designed to be highly flexible supporting various display modes such as fish-eye, single panorama, double panorama, single PTZ, quad PTZ, and quad stream modes. The camera supports simultaneous streaming of both fish-eye and dewarped images so that the system can allow the full image to be recorded while concurrent users can utilize additional streams with different display configurations. The camera supports multi-user virtual pan, tilt, and zoom in quad PTZ mode. This means that multiple users can pan, tilt, and zoom different views of the full image at the same time on live streams or while playing back recorded video further increasing flexibility.

The camera's advanced analytics capabilities providing business owners with valuable insights into the movements of their customers and employees. Its heat mapping capabilities can aggregate a history of movement in a scene and overlay a color heat map indicating both traffic patterns and dwell time in a single easy-to-understand view. Additional analytics include a 12-virtual-line, bi-directional people counting function to assist in quantifying the movement of people in a scene. The camera's MOR (Moving Object Removal) video analytics can mask moving objects to identify a background change. This Intelligent Video Motion Detection software is suitable for locations where privacy is a concern.
