Panasonic launches 4K surveillance camera

Panasonic has launched a 4K surveillance camera, the WV-SFV781L dome camera delivers 4K image quality and resolution at both the centre and the corners of the image.

It is aimed at usage in airports, railway stations, car parks, factories, warehouses and port facilities, where a large number of cameras are required to provide full coverage.

The camera’s sensor covers a 16-100 degree field of view, with no lens exchange required.

The 4K camera can cover a view four times larger than 1080p cameras, and a view nine times larger than 720p cameras. It can also cover two and three times the distance of 1080p and 720p cameras respectively.

The camera also has Smart IR-LED making it possible for clear and sharp pictures at 0.0 lux across the whole 4K image. The rain wash coating helps reduce maintenance costs and helps avoid the effect of the drops and dust.

Virtual PTZ operation allows the user to focus on one smaller area in view whilst still recording the whole area, so no event is missed in mission critical applications.
