Panasonic will also be previewing the new WJ-NX400 i-PRO Extreme H.265 Secure System Recorder (available in December 2016), the much anticipated successor of the long standing WJ-ND400 i-PRO recorder. The new WJ-NX400 recorder features H.265/H.264 recording, increased throughput and recording channel capacity as well as an integrated GUI for PC-Less applications enabling a complete Camera/Recorder/Viewing solution without the need for a separate PC client.
Also on preview will be the new WV-ASM300 i-PRO Extreme H.265 Secure Video Management Software application (available in December 2016), a major new update of Panasonic’s popular WV-ASM200 software.  The ASM300 is a powerful Windows® application that enables a secure, scalable H.265 ready, multi-camera, multi-recorder surveillance management environment and is compatible with Panasonic’s legacy i-PRO line of H.264 cameras, recorders and encoders.

Aero PTZ (WV-SUD638): On exhibit and now available for delivery is Panasonic newest and most durable PTZ camera, the Aero PTZ.  Designed for a wide range of extreme environments, the Aero PTZ provides Full HD surveillance images at 60fps and includes a 30x optical zoom lens. The Aero PTZ is ideal for a variety of applications including ports, transit yards, airports, city surveillance, highways or any area or location prone to severe natural weather conditions or other factors that might wreak havoc on the operation and reliability of a typical video surveillance camera. First unveiled at ISC West 2016 earlier this year, the Panasonic Aero PTZ network camera provides reliable and sustainable operation for mission-critical and other applications under severe weather conditions, from rain and snow to extreme temperatures and hurricane force winds. Its highly rugged, 360-degree aerodynamic spherical surface design minimizes drag for heightened mechanical stability in high winds and the camera features built-in image-stabilization capability to maintain crisp images in the presence of mechanical vibration.  Aero PTZ’s incorporates a strong but lightweight fiberglass body enabling the camera to be resistant to salt-air corrosion conforming to ISO14993. Further, the cameras wide operating temperature and rugged construction means it is resilient in arctic-to-desert climate ranges.

Enhancements to Video Insight VMS: The latest version of VI’s open-platform video management software VI Monitor version 6 (v6) offers increased functionality and now supports H.265  / HEEVC Streaming for Panasonic and other H.265 cameras. Video Insight v6 is now bundled VI’s powerful access control solution MonitorCast v3.5, which will also be on exhibit. 

Additional new VI Monitor features include:

•    Failover Edge Recording - Automatically upload and manage recorded video from camera via IP Server
•    Support for Intelligent Joystick
•    Panasonic AeroPTZ Integration

Panasonic continues to distribute the Video Insight VMS solution to the systems integrator channel with a bundled camera license for virtually all recent model i-PRO and all Advidia cameras providing wide camera compatibility and an excellent value proposition.

Panasonic will showcase these and many other security solutions, analytics and software at this year’s ASIS International. To schedule an on-site demo, please contact PanasonicSecurity@cohnwolfe.com.

Panasonic, a leading provider of integrated security and video surveillance solutions, has announced availability of its rugged Aero PTZ (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) camera — the latest addition to its comprehensive camera lineup. The Aero PTZ (WV-SUD638) is a rugged PTZ camera designed for a wide range of extreme environments, providing Full HD surveillance images at 60fps and 30x optical zoom lens. The Aero PTZ is ideal for a variety of applications including ports, transit yards, airports, city surveillance, highways or any area or location prone to severe natural weather conditions or other factors that might wreak havoc on the operation and reliability of a typical video surveillance camera. 
First unveiled at ISC West 2016 earlier this year, the Panasonic Aero PTZ network camera provides reliable and sustainable operation for mission-critical and other applications under severe weather conditions, from rain and snow to extreme temperatures and hurricane force winds. Its highly durable, 360-degree aerodynamic spherical surface design minimizes wind drag for heightened visual stability in high winds, and its special lightweight fiberglass body enables the camera to be especially resistant to salt-air corrosion conforming to ISO14993. Further, the cameras wide operating temperature and rugged construction means it is resilient in arctic-to-desert climate ranges. The Full HD Aero PTZ incorporates a Hybrid Image Stabilization system for exceptional image stabilization, virtually eliminating camera shake and vibration transmitted through mounting structures applications near heavy traffic. It provides an exceptional high-wind load durability, up to 135mph, and can yield clear imagery with its optional long-range IR LED illuminator for superior performance in low -to no-light conditions of up to nearly 500 feet.

Featuring a high quality 30X optical zoom lens, the Aero PTZ camera’s integrated image stabilization and gyro-sensor dampens out external vibrations form 1-30Hz, such as those found in ports, piers and bridges. It also conforms to IP67 Ingress Protection (IP), which means the camera can sustain submersion in water for a short period of time. Aero PTZ’s built-in wiper keeps the lens clean in rain and snow and it also includes an integral heater to keep internal electronics operating at optimal temperatures, as well as a defroster to keep the viewing lens clear.  

“With factors as unpredictable as weather, there’s no better way to reassure customers that their mission-critical surveillance solution will survive severe weather or extreme climates than to let the product speak for itself,” said Charlie Hare, Panasonic’s National Category Manager, Security and Mobile Video Solutions. “The Aero PTZ performs at its best despite the harshest environments and weather extremes, while reliably producing sharp, crisp images, stabilized from high winds and vibrations.”

Other key features of Aero PTZ include:

  • •    Multi-stream H.264 Encoder with Smart Coding
  • •    Super Dynamic function ensures a wider dynamic range compared to conventional cameras
  • •    Sphere Vision 3D viewing provides 360-degree continuous panning up to 200-degrees per second and +/- 90-degree tilt range
  • •    Flexible power options include 100 to 240 volts AC or PoE (60w)
  • •    Wind load durability, up to 135 mph (operation) to 180 mph (non-destructive)
  • •    Fully water and dust proof conforming to IP67, NEMA -4X compliant and IK10 environmental specifications
  • •    Operates in extreme hot and cold conditions from -58 °F to +140 °F (-50 ºC to +55 ºC) 

The Aero PTZ, now available for delivery, will be on display at ASIS International 2016 with mounting brackets and power boxes, showcasing solutions for a variety of applications.
