The latest addition to Panasonic’s security camera range is set to offer a significant improvement in operability as well as a reduction in the cost of storage and maintenance for city CCTV surveillance.
Available from October 2016, the Aero-PTZ (WV-SUD638) provides Full HD 60fps imagery with a 30x optical zoom lens within a tough fibreglass body resistant to both erosion and salt corrosion and suitable for everything from arctic to desert weather conditions.
The camera features hybrid image stabilisation technology and gyro-sensors to minimise the effect of external vibrations on imagery. In addition, the super dynamic function ensures a wider dynamic range compared to conventional cameras.
Panasonic has introduced a new network camera range at Security Essen 2016, combining Full HD resolution with the company’s latest software, capable of reducing storage and network bandwidth by as much as 80 per cent beyond H.265.
Panasonic Business is developing drone finding technology that can help mitigate the threat of drone accidents and terrorism.
Research by Oxford Research Group, describes the threat of high street drones as ‘a game changer in the wrong hands’, the Group’s report The Hostile Use of Drones by Non-State Actors Against British Targets goes on to say, ‘drones will be used as simple, affordable and effective airborne improvised explosive devices’.
