The compact body with the diameter of 109mm and the height of 47mm blends in to walls and ceilings.
Even when installing the camera in a store/shop with atmosphere, the installation can be made without destroying the atmosphere.
Wide Angle View but Very Low Lens Distortion
Though adopting wide angle lens, very low lens distortion on the edges to provide more natural image reproduction.
High Resolution (1080p Full HD images up to 30fps)
WV-SW158 is equipped with a 3.1 megapixel high sensitivity MOS sensor, creating high resolution 3.1 megapixel JPEG (2048 x 1536) and Panasonic high profile H.264 compression Full HD (1920 x 1080) 30fps images to meet a wide range of surveillance requirements. JPEG/H.264 multiple streaming transmission is also supported.
A minimum illumination of 1.2 lx allows color images even in minimal lighting.
The Electronic Sensitivity Enhancement and Day/Night features enhance this capability even further to 0.075 lx(Color)/0.056 lx(BW) when filming in the dark, making these cameras ideal for 24-hour surveillance.
Face Detection with Super Dynamic Technology
The Mega Super Dynamic function corrects illumination difference in images, making it easier to see objects in more natural conditions when monitoring and recording. It also detects human faces and makes them easy to identify.
Fog and Smoke Reduction
Improved visibility of images in fog or smoke using Fog / Smoke reduction function.
2-area VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified Area)
The data volume of the overall video can be reduced by filming sections with movement that needs to be monitored in high definition while filming unchanging sections in low resolution. Two areas (total of up to 40% of the overall image) can be indicated as high-resolution monitoring sections.
Combination of Enhanced UniPhier® and VIQS Function
Data volume can be reduced by a total of 50%* by using Enhanced UniPhier® (up to 30%) and 2-area VIQS (up to 20%). Reducing the data volume decreases the load on the network.
* Compared with WV-NP502. Reduction may vary depending on object and image quality settings.
Cropping and Modes
The cropping function allows 1080p full HD (1920 x 1080) images and 360p (640 x 360) images to be sent simultaneously at 30fps. Four cropping areas can be set in advance, and it is possible to switch between displays of those four areas. It is even possible to indicate and crop areas using CGI.
SDXC memory card edge recording
An SD memory card can be installed in the camera to record images. The camera can be set to record images to the SD memory card if a network problem causes a loss of communication between the camera and recorder, or when an alarm is detected.
Smartphone and tablet PC monitoring
Monitoring can even be done from smart phones or tablet computers. The image is optimized to suit the screen. This makes it possible to monitor an area even while away or in transit.
* iPad, iPhone, iPod touch (iOS 4.2.1 or later), Android™ mobile terminals.
