Panasonic WV-SFV781L Overview

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.

Captures 4K (3840 x 2160) images up to 30 fps, 12MP (4000 x 3000) images up to 15 fps

Multiple H.264 (High Profile) and JPEG streams ensure simultaneous real-time monitoring and high-resolution recording
Smart DoF (Depth of Field) feature automatically optimizes the DoF to enhance focus for objects within camera view that are both near and far
3D-DNR (Digital Noise Reduction) ensures noise reduction in various conditions
Day & Night function with ICR filter allows the camera to offer a high sensitivity of 0.3 lux (color) and 0.04 lux (B/W) at F1.6
Equipped with Smart IR LEDs that are controlled to match the environment, and allow the camera to capture clear images of human faces without white blur in complete darkness (0 lux)
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
Cropping function allows the operator to view the entire image, as well as the selected area, simultaneously
Up to 4 image capture areas can be specified, and it is also possible to control the sequence

SDXC/SDHC/SD memory card slot for manual recording (H.264/JPEG), alarm recording (H.264/JPEG), and backup upon network failure (H.264/JPEG)
Fog compensation function
HLC (High Light Compensation) reduces effect of strong light sources such as vehicle headlights to prevent the camera being blinded
SCC (Super Chroma Compensation) function achieves better color reproduction even in low illumination
