Security Watch: Panasonic Australia launches new ‘True 4K’ security camera range

Panasonic claims their new 4K cameras can effectively cover a field of view four times larger than 1080p cameras and a view nine times larger than 720p cameras. They can also cover two and three times the distance of 1080p and 720p cameras respectively. This has the potential to reduce the overall cost of a surveillance system by up to as much as half, when the reduction in installation, cabling, network costs and maintenance are taken into account.

There are two new cameras in the range.

The WV-SF781L dome camera and WV-SPV781L box cameras are aimed at applications where a large number of cameras are required to provide full coverage - such as stadiums, car parks, intersections, airports, railway stations, factories, warehouses and port facilities.

The WV-SFV781L is an outdoor vandal proof dome camera. The WV-SPV781L outdoor is a vandal proof box (fixed) camera. Both feature a 12 megapixel 4K ULTRA HD sensor that produces a 12MP image at 15fps and a 4K2K image at 30fps. The optical system includes a 1/1.7-inch high-sensitivity image sensor, Panasonic large diameter lens (F1.6), and a 6x optical zoom for installation flexibility.

They can operate in low-light conditions - 0.3 lux in colour or 0.03 lux in black and white mode. Smart IR-LED achieves clear and sharp pictures at 0.0 lux across the whole 4K image. Both cameras are weather and impact-resistant with IP66, NEMA4x and IK10-ratings and they can record directly to SDXC memory cards as well to a dedicated recording appliance over an IP network.

The cameras are available now from Panasonic Security distributors and resellers.
