Panasonic WV-SC385 overview

  • 1Description

Featuring a 1.3MP MOS image sensor, the WV-SC385 MP Network Dome Camera from Panasonic provides a maximum resolution of 1280 x 960 at 30 fps for HD video in full frame transmissions. It uses a 4.7-84.6mm varifocal lens with an 18x optical zoom to produce a 55.2 to 3.2° horizontal field of view, and full duplex bi-directional audio allows for interactive communication between the camera and monitoring sites. Furthermore, still images can be viewed on your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet via internet for mobile on-the-go updates of the area you are monitoring.

This camera features Super Dynamic and Adaptive Black Stretch technologies for wide dynamic range, enabling you to capture clear images with multiple lighting conditions in the same frame. Additionally, Face Super Dynamic technology ensures clear face images for identifying individual people. You can pan the camera up to 350° and tilt it -30 to 90°, enabling you to easily adjust the camera's view angle. There are up to 16 pan/tilt speeds which can be controlled from the camera's GUI, and there are up to 64 preset positions for additional convenience. Motion detection can be programmed for four separate detection areas with up to 15 sensitivity levels and 10 steps of detection size. Additionally, privacy masking in up to 2 different zones allows you to customize your field of view.

Alarm sources such as motion detection can trigger alarm actions, including SD memory card recording, FTP image transfer, email notifications, and an indication on your browser. The integrated SD memory card slot supports up to 32GB of on-site storage for manual, alarm, or backup recording. H.264 bit rate/client and total bit rate control allows for flexible network traffic management, and frame rate priority mode controls bit rate and compression ratio to provide a specified frame rate. PoE technology allows you to run one wire for both power and data transfer, facilitating a simple and neat setup. ONVIF compliance provides compatibility with a wide range of surveillance devices, such as an NVR or NAS, and the camera's GUI has multi-language options for further versatility.
