Panasonic System Communications Company of North America, a leading provider of integrated security and surveillance solutions, today announced a new Full HD 1080p outdoor vandal resistant and waterproof Fixed Dome Network Camera (WV-SFV631LT). As the latest addition to its 6 Series i-PRO camera line, the new Fixed Dome Network Camera is IP66 rated water and dust resistant and features a built-in long-focus variable-focal lens providing advanced functionality.
The WV-SFV631LT with its variable focal length of 9mm to 22mm is ideal for applications where the camera needs to produce an exceptional image but be located some distance from the subject, such as on a high ceiling in a large lobby.
Leveraging Panasonic’s advanced, next-generation UniPhier® LSI processors, the new 6 Series camera delivers high definition video images in 1080p resolution and an up to 133dB of dynamic range thanks to its Enhanced Super Dynamic and Adaptive Black Stretch (ABS) technologies, making it ideal for challenging lighting conditions. The 6 Series camera produces high definition resolution at 60 frames per second, enabling the capture of exceptionally clear images of moving objects, and features the ability to encode up to four simultaneous H.264 streams while maintaining use of bandwidth via the UniPhier’s very efficient Shadow Compression Engine.
The SFV631LT, and Panasonic’s entire 6 Series camera line, offers outstanding video images in low-light at less than 0.01lx illumination and its 3D Noise Reduction (3DNR) and Multi-process Noise Reduction (MNR) ensures both bright and dark areas are reproduced to deliver best-in-class performance with minimum video noise and accurate color reproduction. The new 6 Series models also feature dual SDXC memory card slots offering high-capacity H.264/JPEG edge-recording with flexible record modes including alarm-recording and backup-recording in the event of network failure.
“As a leading provider of integrated security solutions, we continue to focus our efforts on developing products that offer more flexibility to meet the real needs of our customers,” said Charlie Hare, Panasonic’s National Category Manager, Security and Mobile Video Solutions. “With the new long-focus fixed dome camera we give our reseller partners and security systems operators more choices to ensure they are able to capture the highest quality video possible.”
Additionally, the new WV-SFV631LT, along with all 6 Series Fixed Dome Network Cameras, support advanced image processing technologies such as a wide-range built-in IR LED to capture crystal clear images in low light conditions or complete darkness, optional intelligent Video Motion Detection (i-VMD) such as intruder detection, and two-way audio capability for remotely controlled situations.
The new mechanical design is automatically adjustable leveraging high-speed Auto Back Focus (ABF) and Motorized Zoom (9-22mm) lenses controls image sensor position automatically, streamlining installation and ongoing maintenance.
Pricing and Availability
The WV-SFV631LT will be available in August through authorized Panasonic resellers at an MSRP of $1,767.
Additional 6 Series cameras and optional accessories are slated for introduction throughout 2014.
