Panasonic WV-SFV631L surveillance camera NEWARK, NJ – Panasonic System Communications Company recently announced the immediate availability of two new HD fixed-dome network cameras to its security solutions portfolio. The IP66 rated outdoor weather- and vandal-resistant 1080p model (WV-SFV631L) and 720p model (WV-SFV611L) are the first additions to Panasonic’s new high-performance 6 Series i-Pro camera platform.
Engineered for high performance under any lighting conditions, the new network cameras capture and deliver crisp high-definition image quality. Utilizing Panasonic’s new next-generation UniPhier S2 LSI processors, 6 Series cameras shoot at 60 frames per second, enabling the capture of exceptionally clear images of moving objects and feature the ability to encode up to four simultaneous H.264 streams while maintaining use of bandwidth via the UniPhier’s efficient Shadow Compression engine.
Panasonic’s enhanced super dynamic and adaptive black stretch technologies also provide up to 133 dB of dynamic range compared to conventional cameras, delivering identifiable images in highly variable lighting conditions. Furthermore, multi-process noise reduction and super chroma compensation functions ensure both bright and dark areas are faithfully reproduced with minimal video noise and accurate color reproduction.
“Panasonic is committed to developing state-of-the-art security and video surveillance solutions that deliver unmatched performance and flexibility to our reseller partners and customers,” said Charlie Hare, Panasonic’s national category manager, Security and Mobile Video Solutions. “And with the new 6 Series cameras, Panasonic again raises the bar for surveillance video quality, with their ability to produce exceptional high definition images, even in the most dynamic and challenging low light conditions.”
All cameras in the new 6 Series line-up offer high sensitivity and deliver detailed video images in light at less than 0.01lx illumination. For zero lux situations, all 6 Series cameras include advanced IR illumination capability providing clear images of human faces and clothing. A newly developed precision dome cover maintains distortion free images through a wide range of tilt angles.
The 6 models feature Dual SDXC memory card slots that support high-capacity H.264/JPEG edge-recording with flexible record modes including alarm-recording and backup-recording upon network failure. Series 6 models are also capable of combining space on two cards for longer recordings or creating mirror copies for redundancy purposes. A new mechanical design, Auto Back Focus and Motorized Zoom (2.8-10mm) lenses allow for easy installation and a newly developed lens with aperture control function ensures that both models will achieve the best focus in any environment.
