Panasonic has introduced an elite range of security products, representing the best of its camera technologies. The specially selected premium range incorporates advanced features, with the cameras including smart coding compression and secure communication encryption. All the cameras in the range also offer a minimum resolution of Full HD, with a selection delivering 4K streams.
In addition, vandal resistance, weatherproofing and the rain wash coatings ensure the cameras can be deployed in challenging conditions.
Gerard Figols, European Product Marketing Manager, stated, ‘The Elite Range demonstrates the excellence of Panasonic security cameras. It’s a small selection of our wider camera portfolio. The beauty of the embedded technology is that it helps to reduce the overall cost of ownership. For instance, Panasonic’s 4K technology has efficient compression software which means recordings are typically 1/7th of the usual size of a 4K recording. For end users, that means a high quality security system doesn’t necessarily need to involve higher storage costs.’
As well as 4K box, dome and 360 degree camera technology, the range includes an HD weatherproof bullet camera (WV-SPW532L), which has the ability to automatically detect and optimise video quality within a given image, prioritising disk space for the areas where movement is detected, helping to save network bandwidth and improving the cost effectiveness of the system.
Meanwhile, Panasonic’s iPro Extreme camera platform builds on the efficiency already offered by H.265. With the addition of the company’s own smart coding technology, bandwidths can be decreased by up to 75 per cent, compared to H.264.
