The Panasonic WV-SC384 HD Dome Network Camera 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. The powerful 18x optical zoom brings distant objects into close view for better identification.

Designed for day/night surveillance, the camera captures clear images even in locations with minimum illumination of 0.5 lux (B&W) at F/1.6 (wide). Advanced imaging features such as Adaptive Black Stretch and Face Wide Dynamic Range make the WV-SC384 camera suitable for installation in buses, trains, subways, ambulances, taxis and armored cars, where detailed images are required.

WV-SC384 features include:

  • 1.3 MP high-sensitivity MOS sensor delivers 720p HD images up to 30 fps
  • Full frame (up to 30 fps) transmission at resolutions of up to 1280 x 960
  • Super Dynamic and Adaptive Black Stretch technologies deliver 128x wider dynamic range
  • Progressive scan ensures clear images with minimal blur even when the object is in motion
  • High sensitivity with Day & Night (electrical) function: 0.6 lux (color), 0.5 lux (B&W) at F1.6
  • Multiple H.264 (high profile) and JPEG streams ensure simultaneous real-time monitoring
  • Full-duplex bi-directional audio allows interactive communication between the camera and the monitoring site
  • Face detection function automatically detects and focuses on human faces so that you capture clear and crisp images
  • Multiple video streams can be provided simultaneously either in full frame rate or individually optimized for different quality needs and bandwidth constraints
  • JPEG images can be viewed on a phone via the Internet
  • Privacy masking to protect up to 2 private areas, such as entrances and exits
  • Industrial grade pan/tilt/zoom mechanism provides high reliability
  • PTZ control via the user-friendly GUI with 16 speeds of pan/tilt, while the Drag and Zoom operation enables finer control
  • Integration of 2D and 3D-DNR (noise reduction) delivers clear images by removing signals that could result in grainy images
  • Metadata for VMD is supplied to work with the WJ-ND400 playback VMD function
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE) compatible means the camera can be installed almost anywhere and not necessarily close to a power supply
  • SD/SDHC memory card slot provides an easy way to archive short term event footage. It can also be used as a means of backup in case of network downtime
  • ONVIF compliancy ensures interoperability between IP-based security products of various manufacturers
