WV-SW172 Key Features

  • 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-SW172)
  • 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-SW172)
  • 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.
  • 2x extra zoom at VGA resolution
  • 8x digital zoom controlled by browser
  • VMD (Video Motion Detection) with 4 programmable detection areas, 15 steps sensitivity level and 10 steps detection size
  • Face detection function detects the position of human face and the information is sent by XML or video stream.
  • Meta data for VMD works with the WJ-ND400 playback VMD function.
  • Privacy Zone can mask up to 2 private areas, such as house windows and entrances/exits.
  • Camera title display: Up to 20 alphanumeric characters on the browser
  • Alarm sources including VMD and Panasonic alarm command can trigger actions such as FTP image transfer, E-mail notification, Indication on browser, and Panasonic alarm protocol output.
  • 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.
  • SDHC/SD Memory card slot for manual recording (H.264 / JPEG), alarm recording (H.264 / JPEG) and backup upon network failure (JPEG)
  • H.264 max. bit rate/client and Total bit rate control allows flexible network traffic management. Frame rate priority mode controls bit rate and compression ratio to provide the specified frame rate.
  • Internet mode: H.264 images can be transmitted over HTTP protocol.
  • Multi-language: English / Italian / French / German / Spanish / Russian / Chinese / Japanese
  • IPv4/IPv6 protocol supported
  • Supports SSL, DDNS (viewnetcam, RFC2136)
  • Still images (JPEG) can be viewed on mobile phones via Internet.
  • Onvif compliant model
  • Panning/tilting and Preset Map Shot function realizes wide range monitoring. Horizontal angle:180° Vertical angle 123°)
  • Easy installation: Easy to adjust directions.
  • Interactive communication with audio: By using the audio output connector and the microphone in connector, receiving audio from the cameras on a PC and transmitting audio from the PC to the cameras is available.
  • IP55 rated water and dust resistant. Compatible with IEC60529
  • Best effort on Transmission priority: In accordance with the network bandwidth, H.264 images will be transmitted with the bit rate varying between the maximum and minimum bit rates that are set for “Max bit rate (per client)”.


WV-SW172 Description


SVGA / 800 x 600 H.264 Pan-tilting Network Camera

SVGA network camera with Pan/Tilt/Digital zoom, H.264 monitoring and PoE capability IP55

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.
