WV-SFV781L Key Feature


4K (3,840 x 2,160) images up to 30 fps, 12M pixel (4,000 x 3,000) images up to 15 fps
Newly developed 1/1.7 type high sensitivity MOS image sensor
Ultrawide x6 zoom lens with the newly developed 3-drive lens system (Horizontal Angle: 100.0°(wide) to 17.0°(tele)) [4 : 3 mode]
Multiple H.264 (High profile) streams and JPEG streams ensure simultaneous real time monitoring and high resolution recording.
Smart DoF (Depth of Field): Automatically optimizes DoF to enhance focus both for near and far objects within camera view.
Digital Noise Reduction: 3D-DNR ensures noise reduction in various conditions.
High sensitivity with Day & Night (ICR*) function: 0.3 lx (Colour), 0.04 lx (B/W) at F1.6 * ICR: IR Cut filter Removal
Smart IR LED equipped: The equipped infrared LED makes it possible to take pictures at zero lx. The IR LED is controlled to match the environment, thereby the camera provides clear images of human faces without white blur.
Camera attachment bracket allows an easy camera installation toward all four directions.
VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified area) technology allows the designated eight locations to retain higher image quality while the excluded area will have a decreased image quality, which enables to use lower image file size and bit rate.
Cropping function enables to provide whole image and the part image simultaneously. Up to 4 image capture areas can be specified, and it is also possible to control the sequence.
Electronic sensitivity enhancement: Auto (Up to 16/30s) / OFF
Selectable light control modes: Outdoor scene, Indoor scene (50 Hz) / Indoor scene (60 Hz), Fix shutter

WV-SFV781L Description

Introducing Panasonic’s brand new ultra-high-definition WV-SFV781L 4k security camera, which provides the crisp and clearest images ever experienced. It is vandal proof and packed with a multitude of ground breaking features. This outdoor 4K security camera offers extremely high picture quality, with 1/7th the file size of other 4K cameras thanks to our compression technology. We understand the importance of wide angle viewing through HD cameras, and have ensured that our True 4K security cameras maintain crisp clarity in any area of their view, whether it is the centre or the corners of the image.

The 1/1.7” sensor located within the camera, in combination with the Panasonic True 4K F1.6 lens achieves low light performance at just 0.3lx in colour, 0.03lx in black and white mode or 0lux through the smart IR-LED function, being highly sensitive compared to competing 4K class surveillance cameras.

Virtual PTZ operation allows the user crop certain areas in the camera view whilst still recording the whole area, so no event is missed in mission critical applications.

The WV-SFV781L 4K camera also provides 17° to 96° horizontal angular field of view with a 16:9 aspect ratio and 17.0° to 100° horizontal angular of view with a 4:3 aspect ratio. The WV-SFV781L and WV-SPV781L are also weather and impact resistant with IP66-, NEMA4x- and IK10-ratings.

The camera's rain wash coating allows for continued high visibility in rainy conditions, ensuring that the water is sheeted from the surface of the camera rather than form droplets which can scatter light and impair visibility.

This camera is ideal for a range of outdoor applications. The environments that it would flourish in are, but not limited to:

Public safety, e.g. City surveillance at intersections, squares, prisons or parking spaces. Transportation, e.g. at airports, stations or hub terminals Industrial environments, e.g. Port facilities, plants
