Panasonic WV-SFV781L overview

  • 1Description

The Panasonic WV-SFV781L 4K H.264 Vandal-Resistant IR Dome Network Camera uses a 1/1.7" sensor and the Panasonic True 4K F1.6 lens to deliver images in 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution at 30 fps. It achieves a minimum illumination of 0.3 lux (color) and 0.04 lux (B&W). The camera provides a 96° (Wide) to 17° (Tele) horizontal angular field of view with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 100° (Wide) to 17° (Tele) view with a 4:3 aspect ratio. Equipped with Smart IR LEDs that auto-adjust according to ambient lighting, the camera can capture clear images in complete darkness (0 lux) up to 98' (with IR LED setting at auto-high). It offers virtual PTZ operation that allows the operator to crop certain areas in the camera view while still recording the whole area, so no event is missed.

The camera's rain wash coating allows visibility even in rainy conditions by ensuring that the water is sheeted from the surface of the camera rather than forming droplets which can scatter light and impair visibility. This weather- and impact-resistant camera comes with IP66, NEMA4x, and IK10 ratings, making it suitable for a range of outdoor applications. It can be installed for city surveillance at intersections, squares, prisons or parking spaces at airports, stations, or hub terminals, and in industrial environments like port facilities and plants.

Camera attachment bracket allows easy camera installation with the possibility to adjust the camera in multiple directions to achieve the desired viewing area
VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified area) technology allows the camera to retain higher image quality in eight designated locations, while the excluded areas will have decreased image quality, ensuring efficient use of storage space and bandwidth
