WV-SP305 Key Features


720p HD images up to 30 fps
Newly developed 1.3 Megapixel high sensitivity MOS Sensor
Multiple H.264 (High profile) streams and JPEG streams ensure simultaneous real time monitoring and high resolution recording by “UniPhier®”, Panasonic’s proprietary System LSI platform.
Full frame (Up to 30 fps) transmission at 1,280 x 960 image size
Wide Dynamic Range and ABS (Adaptive Black Stretch) technologies deliver wider dynamic range compared with conventional cameras.
Face Wide Dynamic Range technology ensures clear face image.
H.264 and MPEG-4 are selectable for system migration.
High sensitivity with Simple Day/Night function: 0.3 lx (Colour), 0.2 lx (B/W) at F1.4
VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified area) technology allows the designated area 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.
Focus Assist ensures easy installation.
Digital Noise Reduction: 3D-DNR ensures noise reduction in various conditions.
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: Outdoor / Indoor / ELC / Fixed electronic shutter
Outdoor / Indoor: Electronic shutter and ALC lens iris control are automatically controlled depending on the mode and luminance level. ELC: Up to 1/10,000 Electronic shutter is automatically applied for a fix iris lens.
Fixed electronic shutter: Up to 1/10,000 fixed electronic shutter can be selectable.

Alarm sources including 1 terminal input, VMD and Panasonic alarm command can trigger actions such as SDHC/SD memory recording, FTP image transfer, E-mail notification, Indication on browser, Alarm terminal output, and Panasonic protocol output.
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.

WV-SP305 Description


The WV-SP305 High Definition H.264 Network Camera uses a high sensitivity 1.3 Megapixel MOS Sensor, and allows multiple H.264 (High Profile) streams to ensure simultaneous real time monitoring and high resolution recording via “UniPhier”, Panasonic’s proprietary System LSI platform.

Full frame (up to 30fps) transmission is available at 1280x960 images sizes, with 16:9 aspect ratio H.264 streams available at up to 720 / 30p resolution.

Optimum image quality is assured through the use of advanced technologies such as Face Wide Dynamic Range for clear face images, and Adaptive Black Stretch (ABS) to deliver wider dynamic range than conventional camera. The 3D-DNR Digital Noise Reduction system ensures noise reduction in a variety of environmental conditions, while progressive scan ensure clear images by minimising motion blur, even with moving subjects.

A simple browser control interface gives the user easy access to zoom controls, alarm notifications and image transfer.

Setup and configuration is made as effortless as possible through the use of focus assist, and a simple multi-language GUI and setup menu, along with an analogue monitor output for easy installation.
