Panasonic IP Cameras
Panasonic has provided IP cameras that attach to your network for many years. They are a well known brand that provides excellent quality and performance cameras for surveillance.
The latest Super Dynamic cameras feature excellent wide dynamic range (WDR) of 144dB. The image processing in the IP camera provides sharp and natural color images. The new image processor offers incredible features like high-definition resolution at 60 frames per second and Enhanced Super Dynamic Range (144 dB), delivering extraordinary low-light performance even in the most dynamic and challenging lighting conditions. The high speed processor allows the cameras to encode up to four H.264 streams which provides simultaneous real-time monitoring and high resolution recording. Some of the cameras support the latest H.265 compression.
Select from box or bullet, dome, fish-eye, and PTZ cameras.
You can still get the older low resolution VGA type cameras, but the megapixel cameras provide such great price-performance it’s best to select the higher resolution cameras.

Panasonic IP Camera Overview – Box and Dome Cameras
Fixed Box and Bullet IP Cameras:
This group of cameras is excellent for applications where you need flexible solutions. These IP cameras are available with 1.3, 2.0 and 12 megapixel resolution. The IP box cameras can be used indoors or select the bullet IP cameras for outdoor applications.
There are a number of Panasonic lenses that can be selected for the box cameras so always ask us for help selecting the right one. These IP cameras have very good low light performance and include very wide dynamic range (WDR). more …
Dome IP Cameras:
Dome cameras are nicer looking than the box type IP cameras, but you can’t change the lens. The latest Panasonic IP domes include impressive low light capability of 0.012 lux (in color), and excellent wide dynamic range (up to 144dB).
They are available with 1.3, 2.0 and the latest 4K 12-megapixel resolution. Many of the dome cameras include an IR Illuminator so you can operate in total darkness.
There is even a 360 degree (fish-eye) dome camera that provides panoramic awareness and has built in image and distortion correction.
There are indoor standard dome models, vandal resistant models and outdoor ready models. The latest 2 megapixel domes provide up to 144 dB of WDR which is similar to the capability of the Sony and Samsung dome cameras, and exceeds the performance of the Axis IP dome cameras. more …
Panasonic PTZ IP Camera Overview
The series-5 pan, tilt, zoom (PTZ) IP cameras provide 2 megapixel resolution with 30X of zoom, which is about the same as the Sony and Samsung PTZ IP cameras. Select indoor or outdoor ready cameras that are all powered using PoE.
The Panasonic PTZ cameras include a very nice “fog compensation” mode, but don’t have the same wide dynamic range (WDR) as the newest Sony and Samsung PTZ cameras. You can select the 1.3 or the 2.0 megapixel resolution model.
The 30X optical zoom and 2 megapixel sensor, allows you to recognize a person’s face from about 800 ft away. For comparison Axis provides a maximum of 20X zoom while Sony has a 30X zoom lens on its PTZ camera. Samsung beats them all with the 32X optical zoom lens.

WV-SW598: Outdoor ready 2 megapixel dome with 30X optical zoom, 1,920 x 1,080 resolution

Why Select Panasonic IP Cameras?
Panasonic is well known for camera technology. Panasonic has been providing surveillance cameras for 50 years. The latest image processing computer provides improved performance at up to 60 fps. These professional IP cameras come with a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Very good performance in all lighting conditions: Panasonic only has WDR in the latest 6-series cameras, but many of the older cameras include “adaptive black stretch” which improves the visibility of scenes that contain very dark and light areas. The cameras all have very good low light sensitivity and reduced noise that allow you to see video in color at lower light levels.
Built in analytics include “object removed” and “object left”. The newer cameras also include “line crossing” detection, camera tampering, and detection of abnormal audio sounds (in cameras with audio support).
