Panasonic 6 Series dome network cameras
Panasonic has introduced six new fixed dome network surveillance cameras which offer high-resolution images with clear motion and improved low-light capabilities while resisting vandalism.
Each 6 Series camera is available in a 1080p/60p Full HD model or a 720p/60p HD model. They include an IP66 rated outdoor weather and vandal-resistant camera; an indoor vandal-resistant camera; and a standard indoor dome model.
Top features of the range include: video capture at 60 frames per second, for very clear images of moving objects; up to 133dB of dynamic range, for improved performance in highly dynamic lighting conditions; and the ability to encode up to four simultaneous H.264 streams, and 6 JPEG outputs, while maintaining efficient use of bandwidth.
Low-light performance is enhanced through MNR (Multi-process Noise Reduction) and Super Chroma Compensation (SCC) technologies, which ensure both bright and dark areas are faithfully reproduced with minimum video noise and accurate colour reproduction.
The 6 Series cameras deliver detailed colour video images in low light at less than 0.01lx illumination. For night recording or other zero lux situations, all the cameras include an advanced IR (infra red) illumination capability, which Panasonic says “provides clear images of human faces and clothing without the overexposure that is common in other IR security cameras”.
