Panasonic Extends Lineup of HD Dome Network Cameras

Dynamic range takes a leap forward.

NEWARK, NJ –Panasonic System Communications Company, a manufacturer of video surveillance solutions, recently announced availability of the first four indoor dome network cameras in its 6 Series i-Pro camera line-up. Available in either 1080p or 720p HD are models with the choice of standard or vandal resistant housings. The two new cameras have enhancements to extend the dynamic range that that can be seen, including workable images in near darkness.

Engineered for high performance under any lighting conditions, the new dome network cameras capture and deliver clear high-definition image quality. Equipped with Panasonic’s next-generation UniPhier LSI processors, 6 Series cameras produce HD resolution at 60 frames per second, enabling the capture of exceptionally clear images of moving objects. The cameras can encode up to four simultaneous H.264 streams, while maintaining use of bandwidth via the UniPhier’s efficient Shadow Compression Engine.

Panasonic’s Enhanced Super Dynamic and Adaptive Black Stretch (ABS) technologies also provide up to 133dB of dynamic range compared to conventional cameras. Furthermore, MNR (Multi-process Noise Reduction) and Super Chroma Compensation (SCC) functions ensure both bright and dark areas are faithfully reproduced with minimum video noise and accurate color even under low illumination.

All cameras in the new 6 Series line-up offer exceptional sensitivity delivering detailed video images in low light at less than 0.01lx illumination. For zero lux situations, all 6 Series cameras include IR illumination capability providing clear images of human faces and clothing without the overexposure common in many other cameras. A newly developed precision dome cover maintains distortion free images through a wide range of tilt angles further preserving picture quality at the point of capture.

The 6 models feature Dual SDXC memory card slots that support high-capacity H.264/JPEG edge-recording with flexible record modes including alarm-recording and backup-recording upon network failure. Series 6 models are also capable of combining space on two cards for longer recordings or creating mirror copies for redundancy purposes.
