When You Can't Be There™
By sending images in both MPEG-4 and JPEG formats,
these cameras let you monitor with a variety of
environments - a PC in the office, a cell phone around
town, or a TV in a waiting room. Their PoE*1 capability
allows them to be installed in places where it is difficult
to provide power, like near an entranceway or elevator, or
in a factory or warehouse. The BB-HCM531 can also be
used outdoors*2 to further expand its range of application.
Using a network resolves many of the limitations that
exist for installing and using conventional analogue
cameras, to greatly expand your business opportunities
through Zero Distance Management*3.
*1 PoE (Power over Ethernet) supplies power through an Ethernet cable.
An optional AC adaptor can also be used.
*2 For details, see the information on the splash-resistant body on the
back of this page.
*3 For details, see the bottom of this page.

System Diagram
The PoE function supplies power through an Ethernet cable*. DDNS service and UPnP
compatibility make it easy for anybody to set up and use the system over the Internet.
Zero Distance Management is a new
business style made possible by
Panasonic network cameras.
It allows safe, smooth, economical
business management that is totally
free from conventional distance
and time limitations.

Audio 2-Way Communication*11
In accordance with preset settings*9, the
camera will automatically transfer images and
a data log by e-mail*2 to an e-mail address or
by FTP to a server. This allows you to check
images only when necessary, and also
prevents you from forgetting to check them.
Store
By using the built-in microphone and a
separately purchased speaker, you can
speak*12 to someone near the camera while
monitoring. This gives you more precise
communication to lessen the inconvenience of
being in a distant location.

A large number of images can be saved onto an
SD Memory Card inserted into the camera. The
images on the card can be checked over the
Internet, or if no network is being used,
monitoring is possible using only the camera by
simply storing the images onto the card.

Enjoy smooth communication.
Image Transfer Function
This function detects changes by reacting to a
camera threshold or sensitivity that is set in
advance on the PC. Captured images can also be
stored temporarily in the camera*1 or sent to you
by e-mail*2 or FTP data transfer*3.

Simultaneous MPEG-4 and JPEG
Remote Pan/Tilt and Zoom Control
Cameras simultaneously send MPEG-4 images
in three resolutions (VGA*7, QVGA, and SCIF), and
JPEG images in the same three resolutions in
favour motion, standard, and favour clarity
image-quality types. MPEG-4 is recommended
for viewing smooth motion images, and JPEG is
recommended for recording higher quality images.
The camera angle can be varied by remote
control to monitor large areas. You can also use
