Scene

Warehouse

- 360-degree Monitoring without Blind Spots
The 360-degree Network Camera can capture images in all directions.
Available modes include Fisheye, Double Panorama, Panorama, Quad PTZ, and 4-stream, and the camera can output video images based on the selected video mode for reduced loads on the viewing system.
- Providing Smooth Images with High Image Quality Exceeding 4K
Panasonic network cameras use the newly developed LSI platform and highly sensitive MOS sensors to provide video with high image quality and smooth and natural color tones. Clear and easy to view images of the location you want to monitor can be provided in various locations, both indoors and outdoors. The maximum resolution is 4,000 x 3,000 pixels (WV-SFV781L / WV-SPV781L). The Maximum frame rate of 60fps at 2,048 x 1,536 pixels can be captured to support locations where fast cars and trains pass by. JPEG/H.264 multiple streaming transmission is also supported.
- Clearly Capturing Images in Locations with a Large Difference in Illumination
In installation environments with differences in brightness, the Super Dynamic (SD) function brightens dim areas with low visibility and reduces the brightness of areas where blown-out highlights can occur due to over-brightness, providing a natural image that is easy to view. In warehouse entrances, this enables the capturing of sharp images of people’s faces as they enter from the outside when exposed to direct sunlight. With the Super Dynamic (SD) function, the camera can be installed without worrying about lighting conditions that vary based on the time of day and season.
- Strong Low Light Performance in Color
Even in dark locations, color images with low noise can be reproduced to clearly view the movement of people. This is effective for not only parts of the warehouse that are constantly dim, but also normal locations after the lights are turned off.
- Day/Night Automatic Mode Switching
In locations where it is bright during the day but dark at night, the camera can automatically determine the brightness of the area and record video under the optimum conditions.
During nighttime hours, the camera automatically switches to black-and-white video for providing footage with high visibility.
- 0 lux Pitch Dark Locations
Cameras with an IR LED can be used to monitor environments that are completely dark. This enables areas without the level of illumination required to be monitored to detect intruders.
The IR LED can illuminate a wide area so that monitoring is not limited to a specific part of the image.
The built-in IR LED can capture subjects up to 30 meters away. The lens design also has a wide angle of view to allow monitoring over a wide area.
- VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified Area)
Moving areas that must be monitored are captured at high resolution, and areas where the video remains unchanged
are captured at low resolution for reducing the total amount of image data.
Up to eight locations can be specified as high-resolution monitoring areas.
- Mobile Monitoring
Locations such as loading sites and sorting lines can be checked in real time even when moving to the warehouse from the office by using a tablet PC or smartphone.
Also, you can check video data stored on the recorder or an SD memory card installed in the camera.
If problems occur, you can look at the video and check on the situation even when away from the actual location.
- Monitoring a Wide Area and Playing Back Audio for a Specific Area
With a combination of a 360-degree Network Microphone and a 360-degree Network Camera, the audio of a specific location in the video can be heard by itself.
For example, a single 360-degree Network Microphone with 360-degree Network Camera can be installed on the ceiling, enabling the separate conversations at each area to be heard in detail.
This enables the cause to be immediately identified when a problem occurs.

Outside

- PTZ Camera for Wide Range Monitoring and a High Zoom Ratio
Normal fixed lens cameras can only monitor a certain direction, but the lens of a PTZ camera can be operated remotely to switch to the direction you want to view. Detailed areas can also be zoomed in to a maximum of 90x. Since the cameras can be infinitely rotated 360-degree at a high speed of 300 degrees/sec, you will not miss the subjects you want to monitor.

  Preset Sequences --------------------------------------------------------------------
If the locations you want to monitor are fixed, you can register them in advance to move to them with a single touch or automatically patrol the registered locations. Data can be saved to a recorder by automatically patrolling the registered locations, without intervention by an operator.
Ranges that cannot be covered with a single fixed lens camera can be covered by patrolling.
- Rain Wash Coating
- Fog and Smoke Reduction
Water droplets from rain can adhere to the dome cover of the camera and hinder the shooting of clear images.
In our Rain-wash coated models, a special coating is applied so that water droplets are repelled allowing clear images to be recorded even during rainfall.
This coating is also effective at repelling dirt so that cleaning of the dome cover is required less frequently.
* WV-SFV781L / WV-SPV781L / WV-SW598A
Video can be corrected to provide clearer images by removing elements that obstruct the camera's field of vision, such as fog or sandstorms.
- Vandal Resistant
When installed in locations that are prone to vandalism and tampering, measures are required for preventing damage to the camera.
Models featuring the Vandal Resistant mechanism are ideal for installation in these types of locations.
- Waterproof and Dustproof
Waterproofing and dustproofing function compliant with IP66.
Can be installed outside in an area that receives direct wind and rain without special housing. Compliant with IP66 (IEC60529)

Intelligent function

- Privacy Protection for the Employees
The MOR (Moving Object Removal)*1 function masks moving objects, and lets you black out areas that you definitely want to conceal. In contrast, you can remove the MOR function for areas you want to monitor with high precision. In addition, you can protect privacy in scenes that you want to monitor, allowing the monitored area to be captured while protecting the privacy of employees.
- Heat-map*1
This provides visualization of the traffic patterns by people and how long they stay in one place. For example, you can analyze the movements of employees and forklifts and consider repositioning objects and passages to make it easier to perform work.
*1 Extension software(optional) is required.
- GoP (Group of Pictures) control
H.264 codec is comprised of I-Frame, which records all video information, and other frames that depict the difference. Although information encoded at regular
intervals with I-Frame is necessary, collecting all the data will increase the size of the data file.
While maintaining smooth, high quality video, Smart Coding reduces the size of the file by cropping the motionless I-frame scenes. Reducing the size of the
data file extends the recording duration and reduces the load on the network.
- Intelligent Video Motion Detection (i-VMD)*1
The camera itself features intelligent functionality for notifying the administrator about changes to situations or dangers using a variety of methods. This eliminates the need to constantly watch the screen in the control room for reducing the TCO.
*1 Extension software(optional) is required.
