The Panasonic WV-SW458 360° Super Dynamic Outdoor Network Vandal-Resistant Camera (Base Cover & Mount Bracket) provides full HD quality images, Smart HD innovations, and a wealth of features packed into a compact housing, ensuring that it is fit for all outdoor applications. This dynamic IP camera can be connected to a network (LAN) or the Internet, and images and audio from the camera can be monitored on a PC via the network. In addition, this IP camera comes with base cover and mount bracket. 

Using its advanced 3.1 MOS sensor, the camera provides 1080p HD images across multiple H.264 and JPEG streams. Super Dynamic technology features a 128x dynamic range and can be used under varying light conditions. The face detection feature allows the camera to automatically identify a human face and this data can be sent via XML notifications or embedded in the video stream. Variable Image Quality on Specified Area (VIQS), which is an innovation to the Smart HD function, allows the camera to have a higher resolution for specified areas of the image, thus ensuring lower bandwidth usage. In addition, this ONVIF compliant dome camera is suitable for a wide range of outdoor surveillance applications.


Available Configurations Include:


WV-SW458 features include:
