In 2002 Panasonic first introduced i-Pro Network cameras to the surveillance industry, that have been well accepted in the market. In 2009, with the market proven knowledge and experience, Panasonic proudly introduces new i-Pro, Mega SD Network Cameras, WV-NP502 standard model and WV-NW502S Vandal resistant fixed dome model.. It is equipped with a 2.6 million pixels CCD, Super Dynamic DSP and UniPhier LSI. These components made MEGA SD camera an unique and outstanding network camera, enabling Megapixel Super Dynamic, 2048x 1556 high resolution image and 1280x960 H.264 30 ips real time transmission.
Megapixel Super Dynamic
Megapixel Super Dynamic delivers 1280 x 960 image with superior dynamic range by fusion of 2.6 million pixels CCD and Super Dynamic DSP. It can reproduce more natural dark gradation and visibility around motion area.
2.6 million pixels CCD and Uniphier platform delivers 2048 x 1538 outstanding image quality, allowing precise identification. It can provides 10 times more precise image than the conventional VGA CCDs. Alternatively it can capture an area 10 times larger while maintaining the same image quality of conventional VGA cameras.
H.264 High Profile
H.264 High profile encoding with Panasonic Uniphier LSI enables 1280 x 960 real time video stream with smaller data size.
Progressive Video Output
Progressive Video Output ensures clear images with less motion blur and no tearing even when the subject is moving.
High sensitivity 1.0 lux allows color images even when the lighting is dim. When the situation is too dark, Electronic Sensitivity Enhansment and Day/Night feature further enhances the low light capability, ideal for 24-hour surveillance.
ABF and Day/Night
Day/Night feature automatically switches the camera from color to B/W depending on the illumination. ABF automatically adjusts back focus, allowing easy installation and accurate focus in both color and B/W mode. With moving IR cut filter and ABF, both high sensitivity and accurate focus are ensured.
2D-DNR for motion area and 3D-DNR for static area are effectively combined, realizing a clear low noise image with less motion blur and resolution deterioration.
Three different type of streaming modes including JPEG and H.264(2ch) or MPEG4(2ch) can be transmitted simultaneously, enabling both real time monitoring and high quality recording.
Notes: When motion stream 1 is H.264 or MPEG-4, motion stream 2 must be H.264 or MPEG-4 (same compression type). Total bit rate must be less than camera’s max performance.
SD Memory Backup
When the network experiences a problem, images can automatically be backed up in the SD/SDHC memory card. Images recorded in the SD/SDHC memory during a network failure can be transferred to the recorder automatically or manually when the recorder is in non-recording status.
i-Pro cameras can send motion meta data when used with WJ-ND400 so that motions in the specified area in the recorded images can quickly be searched. Sensitivity depends on the VMD setup of the camera.
Flexible Alarm Handling
Various alarm sources and actions are available for flexible alarm control. Alarm sources including 3 terminal inputs, VMD and Panasonic alarm command can trigger actions such as SD/SDHC memory recording, Image quality change (JPEG). FTP image transfer, E-mail notification, Indication on browser, Terminal output, and Panasonic alarm command output.
