Panasonic Introduces Two Highly Cost Effective, I-Pro SmartHD Security Cameras - The WV-SP105 And WV-SP102

Product Profile

Panasonic System Networks Europe (PSNE) announced the introduction of two highly cost effective i-Pro SmartHD security network cameras - the WV-SP105 & WV-SP102. The new cameras record 720p HD images at up to 30 frames-per-second (FPS) with multiple H.264 (High profile) and JPEG video streams.

Both cameras employ Panasonic's UniPhier® LSI (Large-Scale Integrated circuit) chip and H.264 High Profile format to deliver real-time video streaming at a lower data size. These affordable cameras are packed with Panasonic features such as Adaptive Black Stretch (ABS) technology for wide dynamic range, Digital Noise Reduction (3D-DNR), and Video Motion Detection (VMD) with four programmable detection areas, 15-step sensitivity levels and 10-step detection sizes. Metadata for the VMD works with Panasonic's Model WJ-ND400 playback VMD function. Privacy Zone can mask up to two private areas, such as house windows and entrances/exits.

"We need to offer options for our customers looking for greater cost-efficiencies," said Stephen Gerrard, Head of Marketing for PSNE UK. "Our new cost-effective cameras provide superior image quality and ensure we have solutions for every application."

The flagship i-Pro SmartHD model WV-SP105 incorporates a newly developed 1.3-megapixel high sensitivity MOS sensor for full-frame 1,280x960-pixel image size. In VGA resolution mode, the camera offers a 2x extra zoom in addition to the 4x digital zoom controlled by the browser. The camera provides automatic electronic sensitivity enhancement (up to 16x) with light sensitivity levels of 0.8 lux (colour) and 0.4 lux (B&W) at F2.2.

The new i-Pro SmartHD model WV-SP102 is equipped with a 0.32 megapixel high sensitivity MOS sensor that offers full frame (640x480-pixel) transmission at 30 fps. Automatic electronic sensitivity enhancement is 8x, with light sensitivity levels of 2.0 lux (colour) and 1.3 lux (B&W) at F2.0.

For both network cameras, progressive scan ensures clear images with less motion blur and no tearing, even when a subject is moving. A primary (RGB) colour filter provides superior colour reproduction. For organizations that need to secure both personnel and property but also face the challenge of economic constraint, WV-SP105 & WV-SP102 provide a highly specified security solution at a cost efficient price.
