Featuring a 3.1MP MOS image sensor, the WV-SF138 MP Network Dome Camera from Panasonic provides a maximum resolution of 2048 x 1536 at 15 fps, and it can also achieve 1920 x 1080 resolution at 30 fps for HD video in full frame transmissions. It uses a 1.95mm fixed focal lens to produce a maximum horizontal field of view of 100°, 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. A cropping function can simultaneously transmit a full image in 1920 x 1080 resolution and part of the same image in 640 x 480 resolution, enabling you to focus on a specific area within the larger image. 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 64GB 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. Variable Image Quality on Specified areas allows you to retain high image quality on 2 designated areas while decreasing the image quality on a third area, enabling you to use a low image file size and bit rate when transmitting the excluded area.

The camera's low-profie design enables discrete installation for inconspicuous monitoring. PoE technology allows you to run one wire for both power and data transfer, facilitating a simple and neat setup. This comprehensive system can support up to 14 simultaneous users, conveniently allowing multiple viewers to access the video feed at the same time. 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.
