Panasonic WV-SW172 overview

  • 1Description

The Panasonic WV-SW172 H.264 Outdoor Pan/Tilt Network Camera (NTSC) offers high-quality 24-hour video surveillance in both day and night time lighting conditions.

Designed for day/night surveillance, this network camera captures clear images at F/2.2 even in locations with a minimum illumination of 0.5 lux (B&W). The Adaptive Black Stretch technology increases visibility of subjects in dark areas of a video scene without compromising the image quality of brighter areas. The face wide dynamic range technology offers blur-free images of the human face. The pan & tilt functionality and preset map shot function allow wide area monitoring (Horizontal 180°, Vertical 123°). Furthermore, with the progressive scan technology, you can be sure to obtain blur-free images even when the object is in motion. In addition, the UniPhier LSI chip enables this network camera to simultaneously stream real-time imagery in SVGA resolution of 800 x 600 at 30 fps. The electronic sensitivity enhancement function Auto (up to 16x) increases the quantity of light stored on the sensor, making the image brighter.

Equipped with Digital Noise Reduction technology, the camera filters signals that could result in grainy images. When any movement is detected, alarm sources, including VMD and Panasonic alarm command, trigger actions such as FTP image transfer and e-mail notification. The camera comes with an SD/SDHC memory card slot that provides an easy way for data backup upon network failure. As the WV-SW172 camera is Power over Ethernet (PoE) compatible, it can be installed almost anywhere without the need for an additional power supply. Furthermore, the IP55 rated water and dust-resistant housing allows this camera to be installed outdoors even in harsh weather conditions.

    Panasonic WV-SW172 reviews

    WV-SW172 H.264 Outdoor Pan/Tilt Network Camera (NTSC) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from B&H customer service is tops. The Panasonic SW-172 was intended as an exterior security camera. Unfortunately, I had to return the camera to B&H. The camera did not connect or work with Windows 7 x64 and Internet Explorer 11 and it flat out does not work with Firefox. Unable to connect to the camera to perform the most basic settings, ID and password, I returned the camera. The B&H Customer Service is superb. The return and full refund went smoothly. It is very surprising and disappointing that Panasonic only supports Internet Explorer 6-9. An otherwise (according to the spec sheet) useful camera is rendered useless on modern computers. From what I have read, there is no MAC support at all.
    Date published: 2013-12-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Explorer Settings The Panasonic cameras do use Explorer 11 but you have to add them to the compatibility view settings. I have a bunch of them and they all work.
