Key Features
• 720p HD images up to 30 fps
• Super high resolution at HD / 1,280 x 720
• Multiple H.264 (High profile) streams and JPEG streams ensure
simultaneous real time monitoring and high resolution recording.
• Full frame (Up to 30 fps) transmission at 1,280 x 960 image size
• 45x HD extra optical zoom at 1,280 x 720 (30x optical zoom)
90x extra optical zoom at 640x360 resolution with 12x digital zoom enabling 1080x zoom.
• Super Dynamic and ABS (Adaptive Black Stretch) technologies deliver
128x wider dynamic range compared to conventional cameras.
• Face Super Dynamic technology ensures clear face image.
• High sensitivity with Day/Night (ICR*) function:
0.3 lx (Color), 0.04 lx (B/W) at F1.6
*ICR: IR Cut filter Removal
• VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified area) technology allows the
designated 2 areas to retain higher image quality while the excluded
area will have a decreased image quality, which enables to use lower
image file size and bit rate.
VIQS can be set on preset position (1 to 8) and except preset.
• Digital Noise Reduction: 3D-DNR ensures noise reduction in various conditions.
• Progressive scan ensures clear images with less motion blur and no
tearing even when the subject is moving.
• Electronic sensitivity enhancement: Auto (Up to 16x) / OFF
• Selectable light control modes:
Outdoor scene / Indoor scene (50 Hz) / Indoor scene (60 Hz) / Fix shutter
Indoor scene (50 Hz / 60 Hz): Flicker caused
by fluorescent lightning will be automatically compensated.
• 360 degrees endless Panning
• Advanced auto tracking: The camera automatically pans and tilts to
follow a moving subject and keep it in the center of the image.
• PTZ control can be taken very smoothly on the user friendly GUI with 16
speeds pan/tilt and “Drag and Zoom” operation enabling finer control.
256 speeds available for system with WV-CU950 system controller.
• Up to 256 preset positions
• 360 map shot: 8 thumbnail images at 45 deg. intervals make it simple
to direct the camera easily by clicking on a thumbnail.
• Industrial grade Pan / Tilt / Zoom mechanism for high reliability
• VMD (Video Motion Detection) with 4 programmable detection areas,
15 steps sensitivity level and 10 steps detection size
• Privacy Zone can mask up to 32 private areas, such as house
windows and entrances/exits.
• Camera title display: Up to 20 alphanumeric characters on the browser
• Alarm sources including 3 terminal input, VMD and Panasonic alarm command can trigger
actions such as SDXC/SDHC/SD memory recording, FTP image transfer, E-mail notification,
Indication on browser, Alarm terminal output, and Panasonic alarm protocol output.
• Full duplex bi-directional audio allows interactive communication
between camera site and monitoring site.
• JPEG Image compression ratio can be changed by alarm so that
higher quality image can be provided.
• Prioritized stream control: One of the video streams can be prioritized
when multiple recorders or client PCs are accessing the camera so
that the recorder or the client PC can maintain the frame rate.
• SDXC/SDHC/SD Memory card slot for manual recording (H.264 / JPEG),
alarm recording (H.264 / JPEG) and backup upon network failure (H.264 / JPEG)
• H.264 max. bit rate / client and Total bit rate control allows flexible
network traffic management. Frame rate priority mode controls bit
rate and compression ratio to provide the specified frame rate.
• Internet mode: H.264 images can be transmitted over HTTP protocol.
• Multi-language: English / Italian / French / German / Spanish /
Portuguese / Russian / Chinese / Japanese
• IPv4/IPv6 protocol supported
• Supports SSL, DDNS (viewnetcam, RFC2136)

measurement standard compliant.
• Dehumidification device for use in various weather conditions
• Rain wash coating dome cover
• Ambient Operating Temperature : -50 °C to +55 °C ( -58 °F to 131 °F )
• Fog compensation function equipped as standard.
• AEM (Auto Eyelid Mechanism) offers images that are more natural
and easy to watch reducing doubled images when direction of the
lens moved above the horizontal.
