The Panasonic WV-SW172 SVGA Outdoor Pan/Tilt Network Camera with Face Detection offers high-quality 24-hour video surveillance in both day and night time lighting conditions. It is 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 180deg., Vertical 123deg.). 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.
