WV-NS954E Description


Dome Network camera featuring 30x zoom and Super Dynamic III

Featuring the Auto Tracking function the camera realises high accuracy detection of individuals by memorising the characteristics of the subject including any colours, shape and contrast. Featuring not only Pan and Tilt operation, but also the new “drag and zoom” operation finer control with smooth gearing, the camera can capture subjects more clearly and it is possible to operate the tracking lock to identify individuals on screen at the push of a button on the optional System Controller. The highly intelligent camera also features an adaptive digital noise reduction facet with 2D-DNR and 3D-DNR integration, ensuring reduced noise in various conditions.

The Panasonic WV-NS954 indoor colour dome camera features an IR cut filter which switches on & off to ensure optimal picture quality in both colour and black and white providing excellent image quality at all times

Another key feature of the WV-NS954 is the progressive output with motion adaptive interlace/progressive conversion, allowing every frame to be clear when the object is moving. Auto image stabiliser is also integrated for applications where vibration or wind is a concern.

Alongside the host of reliable practical features, the WV-NS954 also guarantees continuous 24 hour surveillance. When darkness falls, the camera automatically switches to B/W mode for greater sensitivity. In daylight, it automatically switches to colour mode. With a minimum illumination of 0.04lux in B/W mode and 0.5lux in colour, a clear surveillance image can be captured in poorly lit, dim conditions.

The WV-NS954 features the new pixel based 128x Dynamic range with area free natural contrast image correction. This enables the camera to adjust its settings to handle any movement-to-movement changes effectively in order to view subjects accurately in all areas and positions.

Optimised filtering and broadband digital signal processing are also incorporated, enabling the nifty dome to get up close and personal with the subject and observe even the finest detail. There are 540 TV lines of horizontal resolution in colour and 570 TV lines in B/W and due to the Auto Focus tool the result is super-sharp focus.

The high specification, intelligent WV-NS954 IP camera realises highly reliable surveillance around the clock. Panasonic’s newest colour dome camera delivers outstanding performance for indoor surveillance applications and can be adapted to suit a wide range of applications, large or small.
