The Panasonic i-PRO SmartHD WV-SC386 is an indoor, dome network pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera that combines full-frame 1,280x960 H.264 images, Super Dynamic image processing and 36x optical zoom. Suitable for high-end applications such as casinos, airports, transportation and correctional facilities, this dome camera provides 720p High Definition (HD) images (1280x960 pixels) at 30 frames per second (fps) in addition to features such as auto-tracking, smooth PTZ control with 360-degree endless panning, and face detection

WV-SC386 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: 0.5 lux (color), 0.06 lux (B&W) at F1.4
  • 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 identifies the position of any human face and this information is sent via XML or video stream
  • Prioritized Stream Control allows one of the video streams to 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
  • JPEG images can be viewed on a phone via the Internet
  • Privacy masking to protect up to 8 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 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
