Panasonic System Communications Company of North America’s True 4K cameras feature a 12MP 4K ULTRA HD imaging sensor that produces a 12MP image at 15fps and a 4K2K image at 30fps for incredibly high resolution at standard frame rates, the company described. The enhanced resolution of True 4K can, in theory, cover a four times wider view compared with a 1080p full HD camera, and a nine times wider view compared with a 720p HD camera. Models include outdoor vandal dome (WV-SFV781L) and outdoor vandal fixed (WV-SPV781L) units available through authorized distribution. The lineup delivers high sensitivity in color at less than 0.3 lux illumination. Further, a built-in smart IR-LED and true day/night function ensures low-light performance in 0 lux environments. The line features a custom, 4K-ready 6X optical zoom lens featuring a 17- to 100-deg. field of view. Other features include IK10 vandal-resistant housing for both models as well as Panasonic’s ClearSight coating to ensure better visibility and viewing even in rainy and dusty conditions. True 4K cameras meet IP66 standards for outdoor applications. The series’ on-board processor has the ability to encode two H.264 recording streams simultaneously. The cameras have an SDXC memory card slot for edge recording.
