Panasonic System Networks Company of America has announced an outdoor, weatherproof version of the company’s Super Dynamic HD network dome camera. The new i-PRO SmartHD WV-SW395 dome camera is designed for outdoor use and features a built-in fan/heater/sun shield for temperature ranges of -40°C to +50°C (-40°F to 122°F). It is IP66 rated for water and dust resistance and is also equipped with a dehumidification device.

The new weather-proof WV-SW395 dome camera, as with the indoor version, provides feature-rich pan-tilt-zoom control (PTZ), auto-tracking of 720p high-definition (HD) images and full-frame 1280x960-pixel images at up to 30 images per second.

It also provides multiple H.264 (high profile) and JPEG video streams for simultaneous real-time monitoring and high-resolution recording.

“The new outdoor WV-SW395 dome camera gives end-users, designers and integrators the ability to fashion a fully intelligent HD system with consistent design and functionality,” said Bill Taylor, president, Panasonic System Networks Company of America.
