Panasonic WVST162E Pan-tilting Network Camera


Quick Overview

Pan-tilting Network Camera. H.264, MPEG-4 and JPEG images are simultaneously sent. Progressive scanning provides better image quality than the interlace. Controllable remote operation of pan and tilt functions (horizontal 108°). 1/4 inch MOS sensor and colour night view mode (minimum 0.6 lx). PoE (Power over Ethernet) allows easy install with no power construction. Audio 2-way communication capability (walkie-talkie type conversation).

WV-ST162 Key Features

  • SVGA / 800 x 600 H.264 Pan-tilting Network Camera (WV-ST162)
  • 1.3 Megapixel high sensitivity MOS Sensor
  • Super high resolution at SVGA/800 x 600 created by 1.3 Megapixel high sensitivity MOS Sensor (WV-ST162)
  • 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 SVGA (800 x 600) image size (WV-ST162)
  • 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.
  • High sensitivity with Day & Night (Electrical) function: 0.6 lx (Colour), 0.5 lx (B/W) at F2.2
  • 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(60Hz) / 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-ST162 Description


SVGA network camera with Pan/Tilt/Digital zoom, H.264 monitoring and PoE capability

Camera simultaneously sends H.264 images in different resolutions (SVGA,VGA, QVGA, and CIF), and JPEG images in the same three resolutions in favour motion, standard, and favour clarity image-quality types. H.264 is recommended for viewing smooth motion images, and JPEG is recommended for recording higher quality images.

Power is supplied through the Ethernet cable, so the network camera can be easily installed and added to the ceiling or the wall, since no additional work is required for a power outlet. (compatible with IEEE802.3af )

A large number of images can be saved onto an SD/SDHC Memory Card inserted into the camera. The images on the card can be checked over the Internet, or if no network is being used, monitoring is possible using only the camera by simply storing the images onto the card.

In accordance with preset settings, the camera will automatically transfer images and a data log by e-mail, FTP, or HTTPS. This lets you check images only when needed, and helps prevent you from forgetting to check them.

Still images from the camera can be checked on any cell phone that is capable of Internet access. The pan, tilt, and zoom functions can also be operated by using the cell phone.
