The sail white 3 Series WV-SFN311A Super Dynamic HD Dome Network Camera from Panasonic comes with a 1/3" MOS image sensor and captures images in 720p resolution at up to 60 fps. Enhanced Super Dynamic and ABS (Adaptive Black Stretch) ensure a 133 dB wide dynamic range. Featuring Day/Night functionality with removable IR filter operation, the camera switches between color and B&W in response to changes in the ambient lighting, ensuring accurate color reproduction in daylight and enhanced B&W images at night. It also features Auto Back Focus (ABF) that re-adjusts the back focus when switching from color to B&W, ensuring optimal picture quality and reducing post-installation adjustments.


The camera comes integrated with Smart Coding Technology that ensures bandwidth reduction without sacrificing image quality. It combines three advanced signal processing technologies, Group of Picture (GOP) control, 3D-Multi-Process Noise Reduction (3D-MNR), and Frequency Divided Filter (FDF), together to provide a bit rate reduction of up to 70%.
