Overview of the Panasonic WV-SC588

High-end and feature packed indoor coverless PTZ dome network camera with true day/night, 2.4 megapixel sensor, PoE, edge storage, advanced imaging technologies including 3D-DNR and Super Dynamic WDR and video motion detection with advanced auto tracking for effective large area indoor surveillance for aplpications such as shopping centres

Sleek and modern looking, this unique cover less PTZ dome from Panasonic delivers a diverse range of advanced features designed to deliver clear surveillance of large indoor areas. With a 2.4 megapixel MOS sensor, the Panasonic i-Pro WV-SC588 PTZ dome network camera is able to produce HD 1080p video footage at up to 30 frames per second for high quality monitoring. 360° endless panning and a tilt range of -25° to 205° provides effective coverage of a large area and the 30x optical zoom lens offers display or enlarged images with maintained high image quality for detailed close-up viewing of areas of interest. Electronic Sensitivity Enhancement with true day/night enables colour image capture even in minimal lighting (down to 0.03 lx). If the situation is too dark, the day/night switching function automatically switches the camera from colour to black and white mode for clear 24-hour surveillance. Images are optimised for smartphone and tablet viewing so monitoring can be done whilst away or even in transit.

The i-Pro WV-SC588 dome features high-end imaging technologies to optimise video footage. Panasonic Super Dynamic technology corrects illumination differences in images to make objects appear in more natural conditions for easier viewing. The technology also detects human faces and makes them easier to identify. 3D digital noise reduction ensures noise captured in low light environments is prevented to produce clearer, polished images whilst fog and smoke compensation improves detail visibility in images captured in haze, fog and smoke. Progressive scan technology prevents blur when the camera captures movement, so video data is smooth and clear.

The Panasonic WV-SC588 dome has the ability to provide reliable and effective security monitoring through full duplex bi-directional audio which can enable interactive conversation between the camera site and monitoring site to give instructions or warnings to intruders (microphone and speaker required, sold separately); this feature also enables audio recording for enhanced video data. Further secure monitoring is made possible through the video motion detection system which consists of 4 detection areas, 15 sensitivity steps and 10 detection sizes to detect activity which can trigger alarms to alert the user. Using the PTZ features of the camera, advanced auto tracking effectively tracks motion to ensure relevant video is captured.

Power over Ethernet (PoE) support provides quick and easy camera installation and enables cabling over longer distances than traditional methods. Local storage onto an SD card (not included) can record images when an alarm is detected or if network issues cause a loss of communication between the camera and centralised recording device.

Key features & benefits

  • Industrial grade 360° endless panning, -25° - 205° tilt, 30x optical zoom and 60x digital zoom provide hard-wearing and accurate coverage of large areas
  • Coverless dome structure enables the camera to capture subjects directly without noise and is dust-resistant to cover inside gears
  • 2.4 megapixel MOS sensor captures high quality HD 1080p video footage at up to 30 fps
  • Smartphone and tablet monitoring with optimised images to suit the screen makes it possible to monitor an area while away or in transit
  • True day/night capability with an IR-cut filter enables the camera to capture black and white images at night-time, providing 24/7 monitoring
  • Two-way audio allows interactive communication between camera site and monitoring site when a microphone and speaker are connected (not included)
  • Super Dynamic wide dynamic range enables detailed image capture even in challenging lighting conditions and face detection technology detects human faces and makes them easier to identify
  • Digital noise reduction improves low light image capture by preventing noise for crisper video footage
  • Fog and smoke compensation corrects foggy, hazy or smoky images for clearer video capture
  • Progressive scan allows fast movement capture without blurring
  • VIQS enables up to 40% of the overall image to be designated high resolution monitoring sections so only movement is recorded in high detail, reducing data volume and decreases the load on the network (see videos tab)
  • Video motion detection with advanced auto tracking detects movement in a registered area and then tracks the motion to capture all activity, this can trigger alarms which can alert the user via methods including email, automatically send images to an FTP server, start SD card recording
  • Various transmission modes enable monitoring to be tailored to suit specific conditions, allowing for optimal performance for image quality, network load reduction, movement, recording space and more
  • Privacy zones for up to 32 areas can be applied so certain areas do not appear on the monitoring screen and are also not recorded
  • An SD card can record images locally either when an alarm is detected or if a network problem causes loss of communication between camera and recorder
  • PoE provides a simpler method for installation as only one cable is required

Compatible recording platforms

  • Milestone XProtect
  • Panasonic network video recorders

Typical applications

The Panasonic i-Pro WV-SC588 PTZ dome IP camera is an ideal security solution for large indoor areas such as shopping centres, cinemas and restaurants as it provides effective large area coverage 24 hours a day, in high quality.
