WV-SC386 Description


HD/1,280 x 960 H.264 Camera featuring Optical 36x zoom and Super Dynamic

The WV-SC386 IP dome delivers everything you expect from a fully functional dome camera. Endless panning ensures 360 degree coverage in 720p HD quality.

Fitted with a newly developed 1.3 Megapixel MOS sensor, the WV-SC386 delivers high quality images in HD 720p and up to 30ips. Multiple H.264 and VGA streams ensures real time recording and monitoring capability. The dome is fully functional with 360deg panning with advanced auto tracking and has 36x optical zoom with further 12x digital zoom. In VGA mode this can increase to 72x optical zoom.

The WV-SC386 is packed with features ensuring 24/7 monitoring. Wide dynamic range technology ensures clear images, even in the darkest of condition, by automatically switching between colour and B/W mode. Face detection technology adjusts image on face detection and focus to ensure best possible capture of intruder possible. The detection also sends data to supporting recorder for face matching functionality.
