Full HD 1,920 x 1,280 H.264 Weather Proof Dome Camera

The Panasonic WV-SW158 Vandal-Resistant Outdoor Full HD IP Dome Network Camera provides full HD quality images and features packed into a vandal-resistant housing. Using a high-sensitivity MOS sensor, the WV-SW158 Camera provides 1080p full HD images across multiple H.264 and JPEG streams. Using Super Dynamic technology to deliver 128x dynamic range, the day/night image quality of the camera is suitable in all conditions.

Face detection allows the camera to adjust product focus to capture the face of a person in the image and also use the XML data to trigger an alarm upon detection if using a compatible recorder. It features VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified Area), allowing the camera to have higher resolution only on specified areas of the image, meaning lower bandwidth.

WV-SW158 features include:

  • Finish of the main body of camera is light gray die-cast aluminum and the dome cover is clear polycarbonate
  • IP66 rated - water and dust resistant. It is compatible with IEC60529 measurement standard
  • Built-in microphone
  • Wide Coverage: Horizontal: 100°, Vertical: 81° (3 Mp (4:3))
  • Low-profile design for discrete installation
  • 1080p HD images up to 30fps
  • 3.1 Mp high sensitivity MOS Sensor
  • High resolution at full HD 1,920 x 1,080 created by 3.1Mp high sensitivity MOS 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 1,920 x 1080 image size
  • Super Dynamic and ABS (Adaptive Black Stretch) technologies deliver 128x wider dynamic range
  • Face Super Dynamic Range technology ensures clear face image
  • High sensitivity with Day/Night (Electrical) function: 1.2 lux (Color), 0.9 lux (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 (50Hz) / Indoor scene (60Hz) / ELC (maximum exposure time)
  • Indoor scene (50 Hz/60Hz): Flicker caused by fluorescent lighting will be automatically compensated
  • ELC (Maximum Exposure Time): The lighting control will be automatically performed by adjusting shutter speed in the range of ELC
  • 3x extra zoom at 640 x 360 resolutions
  • 2x, 4x digital zoom controlled by browser
  • VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified area) technology allows the designated 2 areas to retain higher image quality while the excluded area will have a decreased image quality, which enables a lower image file size and bit rate
  • Cropping function enables to provide whole image (1920 x 1080) and the part image (640 x 480) simultaneously
  • Up to 4 image capture areas can be specified, and it is also possible to control the sequence
  • Fog compensation
  • VMD (Video Motion Detection) with 4 programmable detection areas, 15 steps sensitivity level and 10 steps detection size
  • 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 SDXC / SDHC / SD memory recording, FTP image transfer, E-mail notification, Indication on browser, Alarm terminal output, and Panasonic alarm protocol output
  • 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
  • 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
  • SDXC / SDHC / SD Memory card slot for manual recording (H.264 / JPEG), alarm recording (H.264 / JPEG) and backup upon network failure (JPEG)
  • H.264 maximum 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)
