Panasonic Introduces Next Generation i-PRO 1 Series Network Dome Cameras at ISC West
New HD and FULL HD Indoor and Outdoor Compact Cameras Offer Enhanced Performance and Exceptional Value while Delivering 122dB Wide Dynamic Range in a Small, Unobtrusive Form Factor
Panasonic, a leading provider of integrated security and video surveillance solutions, today introduced its next generation 1 Series camera line consisting of six available models: four outdoor vandal resistant models (WV-SFV130, WV-SFV130M, WV-SFV110, and WV-SFV110M) and two indoor models (WV-SFN130 and WV-SFN110).
Built on the company’s latest high-performance UniPhier® camera platform, the new 1 Series dome network cameras deliver improved Super Dynamic HD and Full HD performance at an exceptional value in a compact form factor; ideal for areas where an understated, yet powerful camera is needed—including retail, shopping malls, hospitality, and transit applications.
The 1 Series cameras provide 1080p Full HD images up to 30fps (WV-SFV130/WV-SFV130M/WV-SFN130) and 720p HD images up to 30fps (WV-SFV110/WV-SFV110M/WV-SFN110), all with advanced image processing technologies for clear and easy identification in a wide range of lighting conditions.
“Panasonic continues the integration of our latest, high-performance features and functionality throughout our camera lines,” said Charlie Hare, Panasonic National Category Manager, Security & Evidence Management Solutions. “The new introductions in the 1 Series represents the final step in ensuing our complete camera line-up utilizes the UniPhier® Platform, which delivers superior image quality in the most challenging lighting conditions, as well as more effective image processing for efficient bandwidth utilization.”
Loaded with performance upgrades at a great value, the 1 Series now incorporates the same UniPhier Engine as all Panasonic new 3, 5 and 6 Series cameras. Featuring a high-sensitivity MOS sensor and Shadow H.264 Compression Engine, the powerful UniPhier Platform delivers sharp and natural color images with exceptional low-light performance capability (down to 0.04 lux in color [720p models]). In addition, its Codec Engine attains the best video compression to provide superb image quality while still yielding savings on bandwidth utilization and recording capacity. Finally, Panasonic Smart Coding Technology reduces the bit rate by removing unnecessary information from the video frame by up to 75% while maintaining high picture quality and full H.264 compatibility.
Image processing technologies featured in the 1 Series include:
• High sensitivity image sensor with 3D-MNR enables easy identification, capturing color images with low noise in low light conditions.
• Frequency Divided Filter (FDF) divides the images into multiple frequency ranges, removes the fine noise generated under low illumination for achieving a low bit rate without eliminating edge components.
• Face Super Dynamic enables clear identification of a person’s face, detecting a facial part in the picture and performing Super Dynamic automatically.
• Adaptive Black Stretch (ABS) enables clear identification of people and objects in dark areas or light levels by compensating the signal level automatically.
• High Light Compensation (HLC) produces clear images, reducing the effect from strong lights such as headlight glare.
• Fog compensation improves visibility in difficult weather conditions such as fog, sandstorms and more.
The 1 Series [WV-SFV130(M)/SFV110(M)/SFN130/SFN110] also features multiple H.264 compression streams and JPEG streams to ensure simultaneous real-time monitoring and high-resolution recording. With the latest bit rate reduction technology, Smart Coding, network bandwidth and recording space can be significantly reduced. In addition, Variable Image Quality on Specified area (VIQS) also saves network bandwidth and recorder disk space, capturing clear images of regions of interest.
With tough body construction, the Outdoor 1 Series [WV-SFV130(M)/SFV110(M)] have been built to withstand harsh environments. They can also withstand severe shock and vibration and are IK10-rated impact resistant, perfect for transit and railway applications with the M12 connector and compatible with EN50155-T3 standard. The WV-SFV130(M)/110(M) works in temperatures from -40 to +140 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 to +60 degrees Celsius). Both WV-SFV130 and WV-SFV110 models also feature a new water-resistant RJ-45 Ethernet connector eliminating the requirement for waterproof tape to protect the connections from water and moisture. The use of the new connector system ensure a watertight connection that can be connected and re-connected as needed for testing or maintenance.
Manufacturer Suggested Retail Pricing for the 1 Series cameras are:
WV-SFN110 - $320; WV-SFN130 - $520; WV-SFV110 - $520; WV-SFV110M - $560; WV-SFV130 - $720; WV-SFV130M - $760.
The 1 Series, new AeroPTZ and other security technologies will be on display at the Panasonic booth 14039 at ISC West 2016. To schedule a demo, please contact PanasonicSecurity@cohnwolfe.com.
