About Panasonic WV-SW174W

The Panasonic WV-SW174W HD Outdoor Pan/Tilt Wireless Network Camera 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 HD resolution of 1280 x 960 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.

The wireless LAN function (IEEE802.11 n/g/b) allows the captured images to be monitored over a wireless router. Furthermore, Wi-Fi Protected Setup enables the camera to automatically obtain the connection and security configuration settings of the wireless router. 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. Furthermore, the IP55 rated water and dust-resistant housing allows this camera to be installed outdoors even in harsh weather conditions.
