· New 6 Series i-PRO Camera Platform: Demonstrating its dominance as an engineering and manufacturing powerhouse, Panasonic will be introducing its new 6 Series i-PRO camera line based on its next generation UniPhier LSI processors. 6 Series cameras feature 60 frames per second performance on both 720p and 1080p models and much improved compression efficiency via UniPhier’s new Shadow Compression Engine. The new platform features Enhanced Super Dynamic technology enabling an impressive 130db video dynamic range delivering outstanding performance even in the most dynamic and challenging lighting conditions. The new 6 Series cameras all have the ability to encode up to four H.264 streams simultaneously and feature super-high sensitivity in low light conditions generating usable color video at less than 0.1lx illumination. Dual SDXC memory card slots are also supported for high-capacity edge recording. 6 Series models on display at ASIS will include two outdoor weather- and vandal-resistant cameras that offer built-in infrared LED illumination – a Full HD 1080p/60p resolution model (SFV631L) and a 720p/60p resolution model (SFV611L). Additional 6 Series cameras are slated for introduction throughout 2014.
· New HD and Full HD Surveillance Cameras: New cameras on display include the WV-SC588 indoor domeless Full HD PTZ and WV-SW115 low-profile surface mount HD cameras. Available now, the WV-SC588 includes Panasonic’s advanced Mega Super Dynamic imaging technology, 360° endless panning, a 30x optical zoom lens and a high-sensitivity 2.0 megapixel MOS sensor for enhanced signal processing and performance. Also on exhibit and scheduled for release in spring 2014, the weather- and vandal-resistant WV-SW115 delivers a wide 104° view in a minimum profile package and offers Panasonic’s Super Dynamic Response, 720p resolution and H.264 compression. Both cameras are compatible with Panasonic’s FacePro™ facial search and recognition technology.
· ClearSight™ Rain-resistant Dome Coating: The industry’s first permanent, rain-resistant dome coating significantly increases the operational utility of outdoor cameras in wet weather. This innovative hydrophilic coating allows rain drops to flatten onto the surface of the camera dome, significantly reducing optical distortion and providing better visibility in rainy conditions. In addition, the coated surface resists the development of water stains and dust accumulation reducing dome maintenance. The ClearSight Domes are available now on select IP and analog outdoor PTZ dome cameras (WV-SW396A, WV-SW395A, and WV-CW594A) and the recently introduced Full HD 1080p outdoor PTZ dome camera (WV-SW598) on exhibit demonstrating the ClearSight coating in actual wet conditions.
Panasonic’s booth also features innovative technology solutions for specific markets.
