Total System Quality
High quality cameras bring significant advantages to users, and when integrated into an i-Pro Network Surveillance System, can rise to the challenge of a demanding surveillance application.
The i-Pro Network Surveillance System offers a number of system-enhancing features to further enhance efficiency and reliability.
High image quality is vital for effective surveillance. With a number of innovative features made possible by Panasonic’s advanced technology,
engineering and manufacturing expertise, i-Pro offers Superior Image for accurate identification.
Megapixel
Super Dynamic III
High Image quality is vital to all surveillance cameras. The i-Pro megapixel
network cameras are equipped with a progressive scan 1.3 million pixels
CCD and proprietary DSP that delivers outstanding image quality.
The image is so detailed that it allows operators to identify subjects on a
whole new level when compared to existing analog TV standard systems.
Alternatively it can capture an area four times larger while maintaining the
same image quality of conventional cameras.
Applicable models: WV-NF302, WV-NP304, WV-NP1000 Series

Superior Image
ABF (Auto Back Focus), Focus Assist
When there is a high contrast between dark and
bright areas, it is difficult to reproduce an image
satisfying both dark and bright areas. Dark areas disappear if the camera
sets its iris to capture the bright areas. Conversely, if the iris is adjusted to
the dark areas, bright areas will be washed out. This has been a particular
problem with conventional surveillance cameras. Super Dynamic III uses
a double speed CCD and a proprietary DSP including Area Free (PixelBased) Natural Contrast Image Correction to optimize contrast and
faithfully reproduce objects in every area and every level of brightness.
Pixel-Based Super Dynamic III delivers smoother natural reproduction
regardless of position, size, shape or number of bright/dark areas.

Progressive Video Output
Interlaced video produced by an interline transfer CCD has motion blur
and tearing problems. This is caused by the timing difference between odd
fields and even fields, which gives the image a jagged appearance. This
has been a particular problem with conventional surveillance cameras.
The i-Pro network cameras provide progressive video output by using a
progressive scan CCD or Motion Adaptive Interlace-Progressive
conversion,* ensuring clear images with less motion blur and no tearing
even when the subject is moving.
DNR (Digital Noise Reduction)
All i-Pro network cameras combine high sensitivity design and electronic
sensitivity enhancement functions, enabling them to capture color images
even when the lighting is dim. If the situation is too dark, the Day/Night
Switching feature* automatically switches the camera from color to B/W,
perfect for 24-hour surveillance. * Except for WV-NP240 Series, WV-NF284
It is necessary to amplify the image signal when capturing images under
low light conditions. This, however, causes an increase in noise as well.
In the i-Pro Series, 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.

Real Time Monitoring
Multi Channel Decoding
Bi-directional Audio
The WJ-GXD400 Multi Channel High Definition Video Decoder can
decode 1x XGA (1,280 x 960) image with 2x VGA images or 6x VGA
images simultaneously so that it can take full advantage of a 1,920 x 1,080
high definition display depending on the requirements of the application.
Full duplex bi-directional audio allows interactive communication
between camera site and monitoring site. (Depending on the model)
User Friendly GUI
In contrast with PC-based networked recorders that use a conventional
OS, Panasonic recorders use an Embedded OS that takes full advantage
of Panasonic's many years of surveillance know-how, ensuring long-term
24/7 surveillance under even the harshest conditions.
User friendly GUI allows instinctive operation, reducing the burden on operators.
Conventional analog slip ring transmission requires a DA-AD conversion
and YC mix/separation process that causes image quality deterioration.
It was believed that slip ring throughput is not fast enough to send a digital
video signal, which requires 250 Mbps at VGA resolution. Panasonic has
solved this problem by using Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS)
technology allowing the slip ring to transmit a video signal of up to 500
Mbps. With this technology, Panasonic digital slip ring
transmission can transmit a digital video signal without
the DA-AD conversion and YC mix/separation.
Throughout the process, the signal remains digital
resulting in no loss of image quality.
The WJ-GXD400 Multi Channel High Definition Video Decoder is
equipped with a HDMI video interface and can provide 1x XGA (1,280 x
960) image with 2x VGA images in 3 split screen or 6x VGA images in 6
split screen allowing precise identification and multi-screen monitoring.
Each VGA image
can be displayed at

The i-Pro network cameras can transmit 30 images/second real time video
at up to VGA (640 x 480) image size in both JPEG and MPEG-4 mode.
They can also simultaneously transmit high frame rate MPEG-4 and high
quality JPEG images, making real time monitoring possible while
recording high-resolution images.
Network problems can be an issue with all IP
network systems. This is why the i-Pro network
cameras are equipped with an SD Memory Card
slot, so that when the network experiences a
problem, during the data transfer to a FTP
server or an i-Pro network recorder, images can
automatically be backed up. This prevents image
loss and makes it possible to playback and check
images captured while the network is down.

when the camera’s operation has been hampered with, such as a manual
change in the camera’s angle, removal of the camera lens, defocus,
blockage of the camera lens with cloth or paint. (Depending on the model)
Smart intelligence is also a key for the i-Pro Network Surveillance
System. The WJ-NT314 is equipped with a real time Video Analytic
feature including 8 detection
programs, each with three
intruder detection areas and one
object abandonment/removal
detection area. Up to 8 detected
objects can be traced in the
