The Panasonic WV-SW598 Weather Proof Outdoor Full HD IP Dome Network Camera provides full HD quality images and features packed into a vandal-resistant housing. It also provides 90x extra optical zoom in 640 x 360 resolution mode. The fog and sandstorm compensation, advantaged auto tracking, and rain-wash coat dome cover help ensure a suitable image under most, if not all, conditions. Using a newly developed MOS sensor, the WV-SW598 provides 1080p full HD images across multiple H.264 and JPEG streams. Using MEGA Super Dynamic technology to deliver 128x dynamic range, the true day/night image quality of the camera is suitable in all conditions.
Face detection allows the camera to adjust product focus to capture the face of a person in the image and also use the XML data to trigger an alarm upon detection if using a compatible recorder. Auto back focus (ABF) allows easy installation, reducing installation time and ensuring suitable images.
VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified Area) is the latest innovation to the Smart HD range, allowing the camera to have higher resolution only on specified areas of the image, meaning lower bandwidth.
The camera provides Smart HD in an IP66 rated vandal-resistant housing, fitted with dehumidification technology, ensuring it is fit for all outdoor needs. Also, ONVIF compliant, this dome camera is a must for a wide range of applications.
Finish of the main body is natural silver aluminum die cast, sunshield is natural silver ASA resin coating, and the dome section is clear polycarbonate resin
