Panasonic Releases new IP network Security Cameras

pic3Full-featured cameras are easy to install and deploy in a variety of locations Panasonic Australia today announced its new network-friendly 5 Series security cameras. Suited for both indoor and outdoor applications, the 5 Series provides outstanding images and wide dynamic range performance, incorporating Enhanced Super Dynamic capabilities for clear and easy identification in high contrast scenes and backlight situations.

The new 5 Series Network Cameras include the WV-SFV531 Outdoor Vandal Resistant Dome, the WV-SFR531Indoor Vandal Resistant Dome, the WV-SFN531
Indoor Dome and the WV-SPN531 Indoor Fixed.

Robert Wensing, Group Manager, Security, Panasonic Australia, said: “The new 5 Series dome cameras deliver great performance and a dramatically reduced cost of ownership. They offer high sensitivity and provide clear images in low lighting conditions. With Full HD 1080p resolution at up to 60 frames per second, they are capable of capturing rapidly moving objects from bills in banking environments to vehicle licence plates on the road, or moving chips and cards in casinos.”

“All of our fixed network cameras are designed to withstand harsh conditions both outdoor and indoor which make them highly durable and reliable. They are very network-friendly, with technologies that save bandwidth, maintain quality and allow quick review of footage.”

Panasonic’s new 5 Series Dome and Fixed Network cameras also provide advanced features such as 133dB Enhanced Super Dynamic Range, and day/night functionality with a built-in removable infrared (IR) cut filter. The 5 Series uses Panasonic’s latest image sensor technology combined with Multi-process Noise Reduction (MNR), resulting in high sensitivity of 0.07 lux in colour images, and the ability to deliver clear images with minimum ambient light.

The 5 Series conserves network bandwidth by sending out multiple H.264 and JPEG streams, sized appropriately for each device requirement (monitors, recorders, mobile applications). Higher H.264 compression algorithms included in the powerful UniPhier® Shadow Compression Engine LSI processors save network bandwidth and recorder disk space while maintaining high image quality. Finally, supporting four transmission modes of constant bitrate, frame rate, best effort and advanced VBR, the new 5 Series cameras enable a flexible and effective network design for any application. For local storage options, the 5 Series cameras come equipped with an SDXC memory card slot for on-board recording.

The cameras are available now from Panasonic Security distributors and resellers. For more information visit or call 132 600.
