HD Network Camera With True D/N, Auto Back Focus

The Panasonic WV-SP306 HD True Day/Night Auto Back Focus Camera (NTSC) offers high-quality 24-hour video surveillance in both day and night lighting conditions. The UniPhier LSI chip allows the network camera to simultaneously stream real-time imagery in H.264 and JPEG formats at a resolution of 1280 x 960 at 30 fps.

Designed for day/night surveillance, the camera captures clear images even in locations with a minimum illumination of 0.05 lux (B&W) at F/1.4 (wide). The Auto Back Focus (ABF) feature automatically adjusts the cameras CCD position when changing from color to B&W mode to ensure optimal focus and sharp images. Advanced imaging features such as Adaptive Black Stretch and Wide Dynamic Range make the WV-SP306 camera suitable for installation in buses, trains, subways, ambulances, taxis and armored cars, where detailed images are required.

WV-SP306 features include:

→ 720p HD images up to 30 fps.
→ Newly developed 1.3 Megapixel high sensitivity CMOS Sensor.
→ 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 1,280 x 960 image size.
→ 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.
→ H.264 and MPEG-4 are selectable for system migration.
→ ABF (Auto Back Focus) ensures easy installation and stable focus in both color and B/W modes.
→ Progressive scan ensures clear images with less motion blur and no tearing even when the subject is moving.
→ Superior color reproduction by primary (RGB) color filter.
→ VMD (Video Motion Detector) 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 is supplied to work with the WJ-ND400 playback VMD function.
→ Privacy Zone can mask up to 2 private areas, such as house windows and entrances/exits.
→ 2x, 4x digital zoom controlled by browser.
→ Full duplex bi-directional audio allows interactive communication between camera site and monitoring site.
→ JPEG Image compression ratio can be changed by alarm so that higher quality image can be provided.
→ SDHC/SD Memory card slot for manual recording (H.264 / JPEG), alarm recording (H.264 / JPEG) and backup upon network failure (JPEG).
→ H.264/MPEG-4 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.
→ Alarm log, Manual REC log, FTP error log saved in the SDHC/SD memory card is displayed on the browser GUI and can be downloaded to the client PC. Playback or Image data download through the log is also available.
→ IPv4/IPv6 protocol supported.
→ Analog Monitor output for easier installation.
→ Alarm sources including 1 terminal input, VMD and Panasonic alarm command can trigger actions such as SDHC/SD memory recording, FTP image transfer, E-mail notification, Indication on browser, Alarm terminal output, and Panasonic protocol output. Lens: optional.
