Overview of the Panasonic WV-SW316

The Panasonic i-PRO WV-SW316 is an outdoor IP camera which provides HD 720 video optimised for low light conditions and housed in an IP66-rated weather-proof casing. Ideal for a variety of outdoor locations, the camera features Adaptive Black Stretch, wide dynamic range and 3D noise reduction to produce high quality low light footage. Its integrated IR-cut filter produces highly sensitive monochrome video in low light, even in complete darkness, when combined with infrared lighting (0.3 lux in colour down to 0 lux in b/w).

The WV-SW316 is easy to install and has an automatic back focus system that adjusts the focus remotely through the web browser. The camera comes with a mounting bracket so no additional hardware is required for mounting.

This camera comes with 'Face Super Dynamic', a face detection system which automatically adjusts the camera exposure to make faces in view easier to identify clearly. The camera also has an on-board SD-card slot that provides a backup for recordings, storing video on-board the camera if recording systems are offline.

Please note: This camera does not come with a power supply. Should you require a Power over Ethernet midspan, please select one from the options above.
