Panasonic Introduces New i-PRO Extreme PTZ Camera with Advanced Analytics
New Camera Delivers Ultra-Long 40X Zoom with Intelligent Zoom Stabilization and Optional Traffic Analytics Capabilities
Panasonic, a leading provider of integrated security and video surveillance solutions, today announced two new i-PRO Extreme X-series PTZ (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) cameras with optional Vehicle Incident Detection analytics. Featuring a completely new imaging system based on Panasonic’s recently introduced high-performance i-PRO Extreme platform and integrating an enhanced optics package, the new H.265/H.264 compatible outdoor PTZ cameras feature high-quality Full HD (WV-X6531N) and HD (WV-X6511N) video resolution with outstanding low light sensitivity of 0.015lx. Offering full 360° continuous panning and an ultra-long 40x optical zoom lens with integrated gyro-senor, the new PTZ provides Intelligent Zoom Stabilization (IZS) that produces remarkably stable images even at longer zoom distances. A highly durable mechanical design ensures a superior quality surveillance solution for outdoor applications and the new X-Series PTZ is covered by a limited 5-Year i-PRO Preferred Warranty.*
Debuting at ISC West 2017 in booth 23057, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America’s latest i-PRO Extreme PTZ outdoor cameras take road and traffic monitoring to a new level of efficiency by providing enhanced situational awareness at longer distances and enabling security professionals to detect road and traffic incidents more quickly. Its gyro-sensor-based Intelligent Zoom Stabilization effectively detects and nulls out heavy mechanical vibration, a common issue that compromises image quality especially for PTZ cameras with high zoom ratios when installed on highways and bridges.
The Extreme PTZ cameras’ ultra-long 40x high-power zoom lens covers 1.3X the distance of standard models, allowing a single camera to be installed at up to one mile intervals. In addition, its ClearSight® Dome coating prevents rain drops and dust from collecting on the dome surface, keeping surveillance viewing clean and clear and reducing field maintenance costs that are inherent with conventional domes.
Optional Vehicle Incident Detection software (WV-XAE100W) provides easy and intuitive intelligence and traffic monitoring capabilities, enabling the cameras to detect unusual activity such as a stopped vehicle on a highway or a vehicle traveling in the wrong direction. Once an incident has been detected, camera alarms are automatically sent to Traffic Management Systems to enable a quick and appropriate response.
“As customer needs change, we continue to evolve the capabilities of our hardware and software to best meet those needs and our I-PRO Extreme technology platform is the result of those efforts,” said Charlie Hare, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America’s National Category Manager, Security and Mobile Video Solutions. “This includes consistent enhancements to image quality and low-light performance, advanced compression technologies that reduce streaming and storage requirements as well as new analytics capabilities. These advancements ensure our cameras and systems continue to raise the bar of performance that our partners and customers expect from Panasonic.”
Other key features of the i-PRO Extreme PTZ cameras include:
• Full HD 1080p (WV-X6531N) and HD 720p (WV-X6511N) resolution at 60fps with a 40X optical zoom lens
