High Resolution (1080p Full HD images up to 30fps)

Panasonic SmartHD 5 Series network cameras are equipped with a 3.1 megapixel high sensitivity MOS sensor, creating high resolution 3 megapixel JPEG (2048 x 1536) and Panasonic high profile H.264 compression Full HD (1920 x 1080) 30fps images to meet a wide range of surveillance requirements. JPEG/H.264 multiple streaming transmission is also supported.
A minimum illumination of 0.5 lx* allows color images even in minimal lighting.
The Electronic Sensitivity Enhancement and Day/Night features enhance this capability even further to 0.03 lx(Color)/0.004 lx(BW)* when filming in the dark, making these cameras ideal for 24-hour surveillance.

High Sensitivity Color Reproduction

Face Detection with Super Dynamic Technology

The Mega Super Dynamic function corrects illumination difference in images, making it easier to see objects in more natural conditions when monitoring and recording. It also detects human faces and makes them easy to identify.

LDC (Lens Distortion Compensation)

Image distortion caused by wide lens is compensated to display more natural images.

Fog and Smoke Reduction

Improved visibility of images in fog or smoke using Fog / Smoke reduction function

2-area VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified Area)

The data volume of the overall video can be reduced by filming sections with movement that needs to be monitored in high definition while filming unchanging sections in low resolution.
Two areas (total of up to 40% of the overall image) can be indicated as high-resolution monitoring sections.

Combination of Enhanced UniPhier ® and VIQS function

Data volume can be reduced by a total of 50%* by using Enhanced UniPhier® (up to 30%) and 2-area VIQS (up to 20%).
Reducing the data volume decreases the load on the network.
It also uses less space on the disc in the recorder, meaning that more images can be stored on a disc of the same size with the same image settings.

* Compared with WV-NP502. Reduction may vary depending on object and image quality settings.

Cropping features

The cropping function allows 1080p full HD (1920 x 1080) images and 360p (640 x 360) images to be sent simultaneously at 30fps.
The cropping function films close-up images of areas requiring monitoring while also recording the entire image with a high image quality (1080p), allowing for efficient use of the network. One camera does the work of two! Four cropping areas can be set in advance, and it is possible to switch between displays of those four areas. It is even possible to indicate and crop areas using CGI.

Various Transmission Modes

Select from four modes to suit conditions such as the image being filmed and the monitoring environment. This allows for optimal performance for image quality, movement, network load reduction, recording space and more.In addition to “Constant Bitrate”, which provides the best picture quality, “Frame rate”, which provides the best capturing of objects? movement, and “Best effort”, which changes the settings according to network conditions, a new function, “Advanced VBR (Variable Bitrate)” has been added. Advanced VBR secures recording space on the recorder while maintaining a constant image quality, and can even film complex scenes without decreasing image quality.

SDXC Memory card edge recording

An SD memory card can be installed in the camera to record images. The camera can be set to record images to the SD memory card if a network problem causes a loss of communication between the camera and recorder, or when an alarm is detected.

SDXC, SDHC and SD memory cards supported.

Smartphone, Tablet PC monitoring*

Monitoring can even be done from smart phones or tablet computers. The image is optimized to suit the screen. This makes it possible to monitor an area even while away or in transit.

Advanced Face Detection and Facial Recognition

Advanced face detection detects the position of human faces.
Eight faces can be detected at once.

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)

Vandal Resistant Mechanism

Extremely shock-proof ? will not break even under strong impact.
