360-degree Super Dynamic Dome Network Camera

The Panasonic WV-SF438 is part of the 360-degree camera line-up that delivers full HD images, while providing 360-degree view of surveillance.

  • 360° monitoring with a wide variety of transmission modes:Panorama, Double Panorama, Quad PTZ, Single PTZ, and Quad streams (H.264/VGA)
  • 1080p Full HD images up to 30 fps
  • Combining enhanced “UniPhier®”, Panasonic’s proprietary System LSI platform and 2 areas VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified area) function can decrease maximum 50%*1 network bandwidth
  • Multiple H.264 (High profile) streams and JPEG streams ensure simultaneous real time monitoring and high resolution recording by enhanced “UniPhier®”
  • Smooth PTZ operation without mechanical action
  • Built-in distortion correction function
  • A fisheye lens control function realizes intelligible screen operation intuitively
  • Smartphone monitoring : Direct camera control from smartphone
  • Super Dynamic and ABS (Adaptive Black Stretch) technologies deliver 128x wider dynamic range compared to conventional cameras

 

Wide range of image modes
(Select the ideal image mode based on what you want to monitor and where the camera is installed.)
Double Panorama Mode
When the camera is installed on the ceiling, the entire area under the camera is displayed as two 180° panoramic images.

Panorama Mode
When the camera is installed on a wall, the 180° area in front of the camera is displayed as a panoramic image. Blind spots that occur at the left and right sides of the image when using a 104° horizontal wide-angle camera (WV-SW155) are captured clearly.

Quad PTZ Mode
4 VGA size (640 x 480 dot) images displayed on one screen.
Images in all four directions from the camera installation location are displayed on one screen.
You can click on areas within images that you want to see, display a 360° fisheye image at the side of the display, and move to positions that you want to see simply by clicking.

Single PTZ Mode
Displays one quad VGA size (1280 x 960 dot) image. You change the display area by clicking the area you want to see in the image.

Fisheye Mode

Displays full 360° fisheye images, enabling monitoring without blind spots.
Shooting in all directions means that the path of everyone walking beneath the camera can be monitored. Images can be displayed in 3Mbps or 1.3 Mbps modes.

 

4 Stream Mode
Four VGA size (640 x 480 dot) images are transmitted. The operator sets the orientation beforehand.

 

Intelligent Resolution Technology

With the Intelligent Resolution technology, 3 areas - outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas - are automatically detected and optimum signal processes are performed to each area.
Apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness, the innovative technology Intelligent Resolution precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in the most effective way for it. As a result,images are naturally clear and crisp suitable for all surveillance applications.

 


 

Smooth PTZ operation without mechanical action

You can change the display area within the 360° image captured by the lens to achieve the same effects as those obtained by a pan or tilt function. But because these operations are not performed mechanically, the image operation is far smoother than conventional mechanical pan or tilt functions. Additionally, changing the orientation of the lens on conventional pan and tilt cameras affects the recorded images and areas displayed for other users, whereas such operations on this camera do not affect the monitoring images of other users and enable continuous recording.
In the Quad PTZ Mode, you can set one of the screens to auto pan mode for "endless panning" (displaying the full area while rotating the shooting range). You can also set up to 16 preset positions for rotational patrolling.
