The Panasonic WV-SW558 vandal-resistant dome is part of a series of 1080p network video surveillance cameras that simultaneously deliver both full HD images and 360p images. Enclosed in a IP66-rated water- and dust-resistant dome, the camera uses a 2.8-10mm 3.6x varifocal auto-iris lens. Panasonic's UniPhier® S newest generation LSI processor provides simultaneous cropping of whole and part images, lower bandwidth storage requirements, more VIQS zones, dual H.264 streaming capability and overall higher-level functionality. VIQS (variable image quality on specified areas), combined with efficient compression, enables network bandwidth reduction of 50 percent by decreasing the image quality for less important areas in a video frame (such as the sky), while retaining image quality for critical parts of the view. Face detection analytics detect the position of a human face and send the information by video stream. Face Super Dynamic Range ensures clear face images.

WV-SW558 features include:

  • 3.1 MP high-sensitivity MOS sensor delivers clear images of up to 1920 x 1080 pixels
  • Full frame (up to 30 fps) transmission at full HD resolutions of up to 1920 x 1080 (NTSC)
  • Super Dynamic technology deliver 128x wider dynamic range compared to conventional cameras
  • Adaptive Black Stretch technology improves the visibility of subjects in dark areas without compromising on image quality in brighter areas
  • Progressive scan ensures clear images with minimal blur even when the object is in motion
  • UniPhier LSI chip allows the camera to stream multiple H.264 videos and JPEG images for simultaneous real-time monitoring
  • 2 area VIQS technology is particularly useful in installations where a specific area in a scene is of high interest while the rest of the scene does not need to be captured at the same level of detail
  • High-sensitivity with simple day/night function: 0.5 lux (color), 0.3 lux (B&W) at F1.4
  • Face detection function ensures blur-free images of the human face
  • Cropping function enables simultaneous broadcast of full images (1920 x 1080) along with the cropped images (640 x 360)
  • Auto Back Focus adjusts the position of the MOS sensor to offer stable focus in both color and B&W modes
  • Combining UniPhier LSI platform and 2 area VIQS technology allows upto 50% decrease in the utilization of network bandwidth
  • Using the distinctive LDC (Lens Distortion Compensation) function, natural image without distortion can be monitored though using wide angle lens
  • Video Motion Detection feature triggers alarm when activity is detected in the 4 programmable zones
  • Electronic sensitivity enhancement function increases the quantity of light stored on the sensor, making the image brighter
  • 2x extra optical zoom at 360p resolution
  • Prioritized stream control allows one of the video streams to be prioritized when multiple recorders or client PCs are accessing the camera, so the prioritized recorder or client PC can maintain the frame rate
  • Privacy masking feature allows concealment of up to 2 private areas, such as entrances and exits
  • Integrated digital noise reduction ensures clear image reproduction by filtering signals that could result in grainy images
  • JPEG images can be viewed on smartphone via the internet
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability allows the camera to be installed almost anywhere without the need for an additional power supply
  • Vandal resistant mechanism for high reliability
  • IP66 rated water and dust resistant housing allows the camera to be installed outdoors even in harsh weather conditions
  • ONVIF compliant model ensures excellent interoperability
