Panasonic 360-degree Super Dynamic Vandal Resistant Dome Network Camera


WV-SF448E Key Features


360° monitoring with a wide variety of transmission modes: Panorama, Double Panorama, Quad PTZ, Single PTZ, and Quad streams (H.264/VGA)
1080p Full HD images up to 30 fps.
Combining enhanced “UniPhier®”, Panasonic’s proprietary System LSI platform and 2 areas VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified area) function can decrease maximum 50%*1 network bandwidth.
Multiple H.264 (High profile) streams and JPEG streams ensure simultaneous real time monitoring and high resolution recording by enhanced “UniPhier®”.
Smooth PTZ operation without mechanical action
Built-in distortion correction function
A fisheye lens control function realizes intelligible screen operation intuitively.
Smartphone monitoring : Direct camera control from smartphone
Super Dynamic and ABS (Adaptive Black Stretch) technologies deliver 128x wider dynamic range compared to conventional cameras.
High sensitivity with Day/Night (Electrical) function: 1.5 lx (Colour), 1.2 lx (B/W) at F2.4
Digital Noise Reduction: 3D-DNR ensures noise reduction in various conditions.
With the Intelligent Resolution technology, 3 areas - outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas - are automatically detected and optimum signal processes are performed to each area. Apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness, the innovative technology Intelligent Resolution precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in the most effective way for it. As a result, images are naturally clear and crisp suitable for all surveillance applications.
Progressive scan ensures clear images with less motion blur and no tearing even when the subject is moving.
Superior colour reproduction by primary (RGB) colour filter.
Electronic sensitivity enhancement: Auto (Up to 16x) / OFF
Selectable light control modes: Indoor scene (50 Hz) / Indoor scene (60 Hz) / ELC (maximum exposure time) Indoor scene (50 Hz/60 Hz): Flicker caused by fluorescent lightning will be automatically compensated.
ELC (maximum exposure time): The lightning control will be automatically performed by adjusting shutter speed in the range of ELC.
VMD (Video Motion Detector) with 4 programmable detection areas, 15 steps sensitivity level and 10 steps detection size
Privacy Zone can mask up to 4 private areas, such as house windows and entrances/exits.
Camera title display: Up to 20 alphanumeric characters on the browser
Alarm sources including 3 terminal input, VMD and Panasonic alarm command can trigger actions such as SDXC/ SDHC/SD memory recording, FTP image transfer, E-mail notification, Indication on browser, Alarm terminal output, Panasonic protocol output, and HTTP notification.
Full duplex bi-directional audio allows interactive communication between camera site and monitoring site.
JPEG image compression ratio can be changed by alarm so that higher quality image can be provided.
Prioritized stream control: One of the video streams can be prioritized when multiple recorders or client PCs are accessing the camera so that the recorder or the client PC can maintain the frame rate.
SDXC/SDHC/SD Memory card slot for manual recording (H.264 / JPEG), alarm recording (H.264 / JPEG) and backup upon network failure (JPEG)
H.264 max. bit rate/client and Total bit rate control allows flexible network traffic management. Frame rate priority mode controls bit rate and compression ratio to provide the specified frame rate.
Internet mode: H.264 images can be transmitted over HTTP protocol.
Multi-language: English / Italian / French / German / Spanish / Russian / Chinese / Japanese
IPv4/IPv6 protocol supported
Supports SSL, DDNS (viewnetcam, RFC2136)
Still images (JPEG) can be viewed on mobile phones via Internet.
Vandal resistant mechanism for high reliability
Operating temperature –10 °C ~ +50 °C (14 °F ~ 122 °F)
Low profile design for discrete installation
Privacy Mode:
The lens unit can be moved and hidden so that images cannot be displayed.
When the Privacy mode is used, a black image is transmitted to protect privacy.

*1 Compared with WV-NP502, reduction effect is decreased by object and image quality setting conditions


WV-SF448E Description


The WV-SF448 IP dome provides FULL HD quality images and a wealth of features packed into a vandal resistant housing.

Using a newly developed 3.1 MOS sensor, the SF448 provides 1080p HD images across multiple H.264 and JPEG streams. Using Super Dynamic technology to deliver 128x dynamic range, the simple day/night image quality of the SF448 is ideal in all conditions.

Packed with features, the SF448 is the most intelligent camera to date. Face detection allows the camera to adjust product focus to capture a person in shot and also use the XML data to trigger an alarm upon detection if using a compatible recorder. VIQS (variable image quality on specified area) is the latest innovation to the Smart HD range, allowing the camera to have higher resolution only on specified areas of the image, meaning lower bandwidth.

The WV-SF448 provides all the latest Smart HD innovations in a vandal proof housing, Ensuring is fit for all indoor needs. Also, ONVIF compliant the dome is a must for a wide range of applications.
