Panasonic unveils latest security surveillance technology cameras with 4K

The WV-SFV781L and the WV-SPV781L are weather and impact resistant

Helping security professionals to maximize their surveillance investment and meet the increasing demand for more effective security, Panasonic Marketing Middle East and Africa (PMMAF) has introduced 4K enabled WV-SFV781L and WV-SPV781L, a new line of high performance security surveillance cameras for vital infrastructure and environments.

The new cameras, equipped with 4K Ultra Engine with large diameter lens (F1.6) and a 6x optical zoom, provide a wide angle of view, delivering very detailed 4K images.

They enable clear identification of people and objects from the center to the edge, delivering very detailed sharp pictures at 0.0 lux with 4K resolution, capturing clear images in low light or complete darkness with a built-in IR LED.

“The latest 4K system is set to reduce overall surveillance costs,” states Yasuo Yamasaki, Director- System Solutions, Panasonic Marketing Middle East & Africa.

“We estimate that the cost of switching to 4K could reduce surveillance costs by as much as 50 per cent, as one Panasonic 4K camera offers the image quality and coverage of four full HD cameras and further taking into account a reduction in costs for installation, cabling, network and maintenance,” Yasuo added.

The network cameras are aimed at intersections, airports, railway stations, car parks, factories, warehouses and port facilities, or those places that require high pixel density surveillance, such as stadiums where a large number of cameras are usually required to provide full coverage.

“The 4K camera sensors offer strong low light performance and cover 16 to 100 degree field of view. This is significantly less hardware to manage and maintain,” Yamasaki added.

The WV-SFV781L and the WV-SPV781L are weather and impact resistant. The rain wash coating helps reduce maintenance costs and helps avoid the effect of water drops and dust. Virtual PTZ operation allows the user to focus on one smaller area in view whilst still recording the whole area, so every single event is captured in mission critical applications.

The 1/1.7 type sensor, in combination with Panasonic’s True 4K F1.6 lens, achieves low light performance at just 0.3 lux in colour or 0.03 lux in black and white mode, with HLC technology reducing strong light sources such as vehicle headlights to prevent camera being blinded and SCC (Super Chroma Compensation) function that realizes better color reproduction in low illumination, making it the best performing 4K class surveillance camera.
