Network cameras/microphone Panasonic offers a wide range of network cameras which are categorized into Fixed, Fixed dome, 360-degree and PTZ/PT types. Each type may have indoor, indoor vandal-resistant and outdoor models. Types of network cameras and network microphone.
The pictures above show major examples of each type. 4.1 Indoor/Outdoor cameras Panasonic outdoor network cameras are ready for mounting outdoors, saving installation time and costs.
Integrated with weather- and/or impact-resistant housing with IP66-, IK10- and/or NEMA 4X-ratings, external housing is no longer required for outdoor installation. Built-in electrical dehumidification keeps the cameras in good running order for many years by removing moisture from inside the housing. Panasonic indoor vandal-resistant cameras have impact-resistant housing with an IK10 rating. Most outdoor/indoor vandal-resistant fixed dome cameras maintain fine focus even when they are subjected to external mechanical shock. IP ratings - The Ingress Protection (IP) rating classifies and rates the degree of mechanical casing protection provided.
IP66 indicates no dust ingress. The enclosure protects the camera against harm from powerful water jets projected from any direction. IK ratings - The IK code is an international numeric classification for the degree of protection that enclosures provide for electrical equipment against external mechanical impact. IK10 is the top grade.
NEMA ratings - The NEMA rating classifies and rates the grades of electrical enclosures against environmental hazards. Type 4X indicates corrosion resistance in addition to the 8 waterproof performance equivalent to IP66. Built-in shock absorber - In case the camera is subjected to mechanical shock, the built-in shock absorber protects the optical system from the impact by moving the lens system backward. The energy absorbing mechanism consisting of springs and a decelerator effectively diminishes the impact.
Dehumidification - The built-in electrical dehumidification keeps the camera dry inside, using electrolysis to remove any moisture from the camera. This anti-humidity technology is safe and green due to low power consumption and no heaters or mechanical fans being used. Heater and cooling fan - The built-in power-saving heater and long life cooling fans protect the camera from ambient temperatures.
The outdoor cameras are also designed to cancel out effects from thermal expansion and shrinkage. Hydrophilic Coating - The hydrophilic coating on the camera dome keeps visibility in rainy weather, sheeting water off instead of forming droplets that scatter light.
Sun shield - The shield protects the cameras lens from direct sun light. 4.2 Types of cameras Fixed Network Camera - A fixed network camera is box-shaped and points in a fixed direction to monitor a specific area once the camera is mounted. Due to the visible form, the fixed network camera is often installed where effective deterrence and prevention are required. Indoor fixed network cameras may have exchangable lenses and a suitable lens can be selected for the desirable field of view. Panasonic also offers stylish cylindrical fixed network cameras that have built-in lenses for easy installation. The indoor/outdoor fixed network cameras may have built-in or optional infrared (IR) illumination to produce clear monochrome images in low light or complete darkness.
Fixed dome cameras - A fixed dome camera is a dome-shaped fixed camera. Due to its stylish and less obtrusive design, the fixed dome camera is ideal for unobtrusive installation for discreet monitoring.
An optional smoke dome cover makes it hard to see which direction the camera is pointing; fixed dome cameras are usually mounted on a ceiling or wall. Panasonic also offers compact, wide view fixed dome cameras that can be installed in vehicles including buses and trains, as well as on ceilings and walls. Some indoor/outdoor fixed dome cameras are equipped with built-in infrared (IR) illumination to produce clear monochrome images in low light or complete darkness. 360-degree network cameras - 360-degree network cameras provide a 360°/180° field of view with wide area coverage from wall to wall and ceiling to floor. In camera dewarping delivers clear fisheye, panoramic and dewarped images with an electrical pan-tilt-zoom. 360-degree cameras are ideal for surveillance that requires wide area coverage such as at shopping malls, retail stores, airports, railway stations, parking lots, factories, warehouses and offices.
Camera Sd Card
With the latest 4K HD video technology, 9 MP 360-degree network cameras deliver very detailed 9 megapixel images, enabling easy and clear identification of people and objects in its 360° wide view. Pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) / PT network cameras - The PTZ cameras, which pan from side to side, tilt up and down and zoom in and out, enable conducting video surveillance over a large area and zooming in to check details. Some PTZ cameras offer 360-degree continuous panning. Advanced auto tracking enables the cameras to automatically track a person or object; the network camera tracks the moving object until the target passes from its view. When the target leaves its view, another camera uses Panasonic inter-camera notification protocol to resume the tracking.
4.3 Key features and benefits The main components of a network camera are a lens unit, image sensor, system LSI, Ethernet (LAN) interface and input-output interface. The system LSI integrated with AV processors (DSPs) and a high-speed CPU on a single chip provides image processing, compression, networking and intelligent video. Panasonic network cameras may have SD memory card slot(s) for local recording, and audio and I/O interfaces. Electrical power can be supplied through Ethernet cable (PoE) or 12V DC. Capturing - Advanced optical system Clear images need clear input. The optical system including lenses and an image sensor is precisely designed and manufactured for superior imaging performance.
Aspheric lenses have many advantages such as less spherical aberration, less distortion and smaller lens size, but manufacturing aspheric lenses was difficult due to their high precision requirements. Panasonic lens technology including ultra-precision machining and measurement achieves superior imaging performance, now clearly capturing every square inch of the view area. Auto Back Focus (ABF) maintains a fine focus, automatically controlling the precise image sensor position. The built-in shock absorber also protects the optical system from vandalism. Capturing - High-sensitivity image sensor Panasonic MOS image sensors with the latest semiconductor technology catch the incoming light effectively with large micro-lenses and photo diodes, resulting in clear, low-noise images even in difficult lighting conditions. The 120 fps-capable high speed image sensor and the powerful UniPhier processor produce clear Full HD 1080p / HD 720p images even at a 60 fps high frame rate. Processing - Powerful System LSI UniPhier is a high-performance chipset in which Panasonic integrates its audio and video processing technology.
UniPhier packs a high-performance AV processor (DSP) and high-speed CPU on a single chip and provides high-quality audio and video, efficient data compression and intelligent video with low power consumption. Imaging - Smooth 60 fps video 60 fps video provides non-jumpy, smooth monitoring. Analog video is smooth compared with 30 fps digital video due to the scanning difference: interlaced and progressive. Interlaced analog video scans the display twice, using two fields, to complete a single frame. The interlaced NTSC/PAL video scans around 60/50 fields per second, creating a perceptual illusion of smooth movement.
The 120 fps-capable high speed image sensor and the powerful UniPhier processor produce a smooth and flickering-free 60 fps video. Imaging - Advanced image processing Coupled with the powerful processor and Panasonic image processing technology, the network cameras provide a suite of advanced image processing such as Enhanced Super Dynamic, resulting in clear images in difficult lighting. The major features are as followings: Enhanced Super Dynamic, the latest Super Dynamic technology, enables clear and easy identification in a high contrast situation, delivering an industrial-leading 133dB wide dynamic range. High contrast is commonly found in video surveillance, which has very bright and dark areas to cover. The 120 fps high-speed, high-sensitivity image sensor captures four images per frame with short and long exposures.
The short exposures capture the bright areas well and the long exposures capture the dark areas well. By combining them into one frame, the Enhanced Super Dynamic results in clear images.
Multi-process Noise Reduction (MNR) increases visibility in low light, effectively reducing the noise from images. The electrical gain level is increased to amplify the video signal in low light but the increase causes grainy video. Panasonic MNR produces clear images, applying optimum noise reduction according to the brightness of the part of the image. Super Chroma Compensation (SCC) recovers colors when the built-in IR cut-filter is removed in low light, eliminating the effect of infrared light.
