The Panasonic WV-CF344 Day/Night Indoor Fixed Dome Camera comes with advanced features such as Adaptive Black Stretch technology, color compensation, and Adaptive Digital Noise Reduction that make it a suitable solution for retail and healthcare applications. It features a 1/3" interline transfer CCD image sensor that captures clear images of the surveillance area at 650 TVL (976 x 494 effective pixels).

This highly sensitive WV-CF344 Fixed Dome Camera has a varifocal auto iris lens (2.8 to 10mm) for wider coverage of surveillance area. The camera can record footage at a sensitivity of 0.08 lux in color mode and 0.05 in B&W mode. Its built-in image stabilizer ensures that you will always get blur-free images despite vibrations, knocking or any other type of jerky movement.

WV-CF344 features include:

  • 1/3" interline transfer CCD offers 650 TVL in low-lit conditions (0.05 lux in B/W and 0.08 lux in color)
  • Adaptive Black Stretch technology increases the visibility of subjects in dark areas of a video scene without degrading image quality in the brighter areas
  • Auto-image stabilizer ensures clear and focused footage even in windy scenarios
  • Adaptive Digital Noise Reduction ensures clear images by removing signals that could make video footage grainy
  • Various adjustment features including BLC (Backlight Compensation), ATW (Auto Tracing White Balance), and ALC (Automatic Light Control)
  • Focus Assist function allows for accurate camera focus adjustment
  • Varifocal auto iris lens (2.8 to 10mm) for clear images
  • 2x digital zoom and electronic shutter from 1/100 to 1/120,000 sec
  • Adjustable PTZ angle functions for continuous viewing of the subject
  • 3-way hinge (horizontal, vertical and swivel rotation)
  • Over-the-coax cable data communication
  • Lens distortion correction and on-screen display menu
  • Internal / line-lock / multiplexed vertical drive (VD2) synchronization
  • 16-alphanumeric camera title display
  • Mounting options include surface mount and embedded ceiling mount
  • Monitor output and ELC mode for easier lens adjustment upon installation
  • Suitable for applications like such as shopping mall, hotels, and hospitals
