Overview of the Panasonic i-Pro WV-SF138

Sleek and low profile the Panasonic WV-SF138 indoor full HD 1080p IP dome camera with 3.1 megapixel sensor, face detection and super dynamic technology offers excellent image reproduction for high quality monitoring.

The camera's highly sensitive 3.1 megapixel progressive scan MOS sensor captures full HD 1080p video footage at 30 frames per second, with the 100° horizontal and 81° vertical viewing angles enabling wide scene monitoring. This in combination with the camera's compact design is ideal for surveillance in small indoor spaces, such as elevators, whilst highly sensitive electronic day/night functionality and digital noise reduction enables clear image capture in low light conditions and at night. The built-in microphone enables the camera to capture audio recordings from the surrounding area to complement video footage. The WV-SF138 is EN50155 and EN50121 rated for use in railway applications. Support for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch (iOS 4.2.1 or later) and Android™ mobiles enables viewing of still images via the Internet.

The Panasonic WV-SF138 network camera provides image enhancement technologies that deliver high quality video under a wide range of light conditions. Super Dynamic and Adaptive Black Stretch (ABS) enable the camera to cope well with stark contrasts within a scene when for example very bright and dark areas may exist simultaneously. Fog compensation technology enhances image visibility in fog, haze and smoke whilst progressive scan reduces motion blur and 3D-DNR noise reduction maintain clarity when it becomes darker.

Configurable video motion detection enables the user to define 4 detection areas, choose 15 different sensitivity steps and 10 detection sizes for creating an effective detection system tailored to a specific application. The built-in video motion detection (VMD) can trigger recording (locally on the camera and / or to a central recording device), email notification and FTP image transfer. VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified area) allows 2 designated areas to be viewed in a higher resolution for more in-depth analysis whilst conserving bandwidth and reducing file size. Edge storage provides local storage space for alarm recording and also provides failover protection in case of network failure. Power over Ethernet (PoE) support enables faster installation.

Please note: this camera does not come with a power supply included, please select a PoE midspan from the above drop down menu if required.

this camera is also available in an outdoor version.

Key features & benefits

  • 3.1 megapixel progressive scan MOS sensor captures crisp HD 1080p video footage at 30 fps
  • 100° horizontal and 81° vertical view provides wide area coverage with little distortion for optimum monitoring
  • EN50155 and EN50121 rated for railway applications
  • Low profile, sleek dome form factor blends in seamlessly with surroundings and ideal for small spaces
  • Built-in microphone provides audio capture capability for improved event analysis
  • Electronic day/night enables image capture in low light and at night-time
  • Super Dynamic and Adaptive Black Stretch provide 128x wider dynamic range compared to conventional cameras for better performance in scenes with simultaneous bright and dark areas
  • Digital noise reduction enhances images captured under low illumination and reduces blur
  • Fog compensation improves visibility of footage captured in environments filled with haze, fog or smoke
  • Progressive scan provides less motion blur when the camera is capturing a moving subject
  • VIQS (Variable Image Quality on Specified area) technology allows 2 designated areas to retain higher resolution than the excluded area for more in depth viewing whilst also using lower file size and bit rate
  • Privacy zones enable specific areas of the cameras view to be blocked out so they are not viewed or recorded
  • Video motion detection provides reliable monitoring of an area with 4 configurable zones, 15 sensitivity steps and 10 detection sizes and can trigger alarms to start SD card recording, FTP image transfer and email notification
  • SD card recording provides local storage space for alarm recording (SD card not included)
  • PoE enables quicker, more cost-effective installation as a single cable feeds both power and data rather than 2 traditional cables

Compatible recording platforms

  • Milestone XProtect
  • Panasonic network video recorders

Typical applications

The sleek, low profile form factor of the Panasonic WV-SF138 network camera and its wide angle view make it ideal for use in small indoor spaces such as elevators, entrances, offices and salons. The EN50155 and EN50121 certifications make this camera specifically suitable for use in railway applications such as inside train station waiting rooms and within train carriages.
