A big change from Milestone Systems: with the release of Milestone XProtect 2014 last week comes a significant change to the number of licenses required when using video encoders to migrate from analogue to IP. Previously, a Milestone XProtect camera license was required for each encoded video channel. For example, a video encoder with say 16 analogue cameras connected to it would require 16 Milestone XProtect device licenses. This is no longer the case.
Take a look at the latest releases from Panasonic and Vivotek, now available for purchase.
Panasonic i-Pro WV-SC384
The WV-SC384 is a new addition to Panasonic’s pan-tilt-zoom SmartHD camera range and is very similar to the WV-SC385 model with the only difference being that it does not have a removable infrared cut filter, meaning the WV-SC384 is more suited to day-time operation only whereas the popular WV-SC385 is true day / night and can be used for 24/7 operation.
Both cameras benefit from features such as Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), on-board SD-card recording for backup and 18x optical zoom, which combined with the HD 720p resolution provides crisp, detailed footage of objects and activity at long distances. The WV-SC384 is available as an indoor unit as well as an outdoor bundle.
The odd thing is that Panasonic has launched the WV-SC384 at a higher price point than the WV-SC385, which you would not expect given the true day/night facility in the latter. We expect this will be corrected over time, at which point this camera will become very attractive indeed in the marketplace.

Both cameras offer a cost-effective solution to 24-hour security surveillance, while the IP66-rated weather-proof casing on the FD8134V makes it an ideal solution for outdoor IP security. Megapixel quality and H.264 video mean great image quality and low bandwidth use.
With built-in day/night filters, they are capable of recording both colour and monochrome footage, allowing them to adapt to varying light levels whilst integrated infrared lighting also allows the cameras to capture footage up to a distance of 10m – even in complete darkness.
With MPEG-4 and MJPEG compatibility also included, video streams can also be transmitted in any of these formats for application versatility. Their discreet form makes these cameras ideal for placement where inconspicuous monitoring or recording is required. A Micro SD card may also be used to record directly onto each camera, so there’s no need for separate recording applications.
These cameras are popular which is why we have secured an exclusive deal saving you £20 on the FD8134 and £55 on the FD8134V until the end of June 2012.
