  • Full frame (Up to 30 fps) transmission at 1,280 x 960 image size
  • 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.
  • H.264 and MPEG-4 are selectable for system migration.
  • High sensitivity with Day/Night(IR) function: WV-SW316L : 0.3 lx (Colour), 0 lx (B/W) at F1.3 (Wide) when the IR LED is lit
  • Motorized varifocal lens equipped: The zoom ratio can be changed and adjusted to an optional photographic area through the operation buttons on this unit and the setup menu.
  • IR LED equipped: The equipped infrared LED makes it possible to take pictures at zero lx.(WV-SW316L)
  • 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.
  • ABF (Auto Back Focus) ensures easy installation.
  • Digital Noise Reduction: 3D-DNR ensures noise reduction in various conditions.
  • Electronic sensitivity enhancement: Auto (Up to 16x) / OFF

WV-SW316L Description


HD IP66 IP static camera featuring Super Dynamic Technology with IR LED and 3,2 x zoom lens

The WV-SW316LE IP static camera provides high quality images and a wealth of features packed into a vandal resistant housing.

Using a newly developed MOS sensor, the SW316LE provides 720p HD images across multiple H.264 and JPEG streams. Using MEGA Super Dynamic technology to deliver 128x dynamic range, the true day/night image quality of the SW316LE in combination with the build in IR LED is ideal in all conditions.

Packed with features, the SW316LE 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. Auto back focus (ABF) allows easy installation, reducing installation time and ensuring perfect image. 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-SW316LE provides all the latest Smart HD innovations in an IP66 rated housing, fitted with dehumidification technology, ensuring is fit or all outdoor needs. Also, ONVIF compliant the dome is a must for a wide range of applications.
