WV-SC384 Features

Wide dynamic range, HD PTZ dome IP camera

The WV-SC384 IP dome delivers everything you expect from a fully functional dome camera. Panning with auto flip ensures 360 degree coverage in 720p HD quality.

Fitted with a newly developed 1.3 Megapixel MOS sensor, the WV-SC384 delivers high quality images in HD 720p and up to 30ips. Multiple H.264 and VGA streams ensures real time recording and monitoring capability. The dome is fully functional with 360deg panning (with auto flip function) and has 18x optical zoom with further 12x digital zoom. In VGA mode this can increase to 36x optical zoom.

The WV-SC384 is packed with features ensuring 24/7 monitoring. Wide dynamic range technology ensures clear images, even in the darkest of condition, by automatically switching between colour and B/W mode. Face detection technology adjusts image on face detection and focus to ensure best possible capture of intruder possible. The detection also sends data to supporting recorder for face matching functionality.
