  • 720p HD images up to 30 fps (WV-SW155)
  • 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 (WV-SW155)
  • Super Dynamic and ABS (Adaptive Black Stretch) technologies deliver 128x wider dynamic range compared to conventional cameras.
  • Face Super Dynamic Range technology ensures clear face image.
  • High sensitivity with Day & Night (Electrical) function: 0.8 lx (Colour), 0.6 lx (B/W) at F2.2 (WV-SW155)
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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/60Hz): 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.

WV-SW155 Description


HD, vandal resistant IP fixed HD dome featuring Super Dynamic Technology

The WV-SW155 IP dome provides HD quality images and a wealth of features packed into a vandal resistant housing.

Using a newly developed MOS sensor, the SW155 provides 720p 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 SW155 is ideal in all conditions.

Packed with features, the SW155 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-SW155 provides all the latest Smart HD innovations in an IP66 rated vandal housing, fitted with dehumidification technology, ensuring is fit for all outdoor needs. Also, ONVIF compliant the dome is a must for a wide range of applications.
