Panasonic WV-SC387A overview

  • 1Description

The sail white Super Dynamic WV-SC387A 720p PTZ Network Dome Camera from Panasonic with 1/3” MOS image sensor offers high-quality imagery with high sensitivity. It offers 30x optical zoom with 12x digital zoom, allowing you to view remote objects without compromising image quality. Face Super Dynamic technology provides clear facial images at a minimum illumination of 0.1 lux (color) and 0.013 lux (B&W). The network camera also features Adaptive Digital Noise Reduction (3D-DNR) to deliver clear images by removing signals that could result in video noise (grainy images).

The camera allows you to change the JPEG image compression ratio during an alarm, while H.264/MPEG-4 maximum bit rate/client and total bit rate control enable flexible network traffic management. It comes with Smart Coding Technology that ensures bandwidth reduction without sacrificing image quality. This technology combines Group of Picture (GOP) control, 3D-Multi-Process Noise Reduction (3D-MNR), and Frequency Divided Filter (FDF) to provide a bit rate reduction of up to 70%.
