H.265 Smart Coding

Panasonic is introducing a new network camera range with special coating to protect against salt corrosion; combining Full HD resolution with the latest Smart Coding technology, capable of significantly reducing storage and network bandwidth.  

This weatherproof and salt-damage resistant bullet camera is part of the i-PRO Extreme CCTV camera platform belonging to our new H.265 eco system. Its unique anti-salt air corrosion protection makes the camera ideal for seaside operations in ports, on ships or bridges and many more applications, extending tradiional city surveillance towards coastal operations.

The WV-S1531LNS captures the highest quality images automatically even in very challenging and fast-changing surveillance environments. Intelligent Auto (iA) monitors scene dynamics and motion to adjust key camera settings automatically in real-time reducing distortion such as motion blur on moving objects.

New industry-leading 144dB dynamic range delivers balanced scene exposure in dynamic and extreme-backlit lighting environments.In addition, colour night vision provides outstanding low-light performance with accurate colour rendition and saturation from i-Pro's 1/3" sensor, rivaling the performance of costlier 1/2" sensor cameras in the market. Adopting H.265 Smart Coding technology, intelligently reduces bandwidth efficiency of up to an average 75 percent over H.264 for longer recording and less storage. Cameras out-of-the-box, supporting full data encryption streaming and being compliant to FIPS 140-2 Level 1 standards to keep your video secured.

Rain Wash Coating

Moreover, the application of ClearSight Coating provides clearer visibility, allowing optimum security to be maintained even when the camera is installed in an environment subject to rain or water splashing. This application makes sure good visibility is kept even when water droplets splash on the dome cover; in addition the coating resists the attachment of dirt, therefore allowing the dirt to easily wash when exposed to water enabling a clearer view.

Extreme Data Security

  • Full encryption SD card edge recording to keep your data safe
  • FIPS 140-2 Level 1 compliant
  • Full end-to-end system encryption with supported NVR/VMS and devices to protect from IP snooping/spoofing and detect data alteration

The camera comes packed with a variety of high quality features typically found in high specification models, such as: 

  • Salt-air corrosion Resistance
  • Extreme Super Dynamic technologies deliver 144 dB wide dynamic range
  • Intelligent Auto (iA) feature provides increased discernibility even in environments with poor visibility
  • High sensitivity with Day/Night (ICR*2) function : 0.012 lx (Colour), 0.006 lx (B/W) at F1.6
  • H.265 compression and Smart coding technology realize high image quality streaming at low bit rates
  • Intelligent Face Compression provides high picture quality at “Face best shot area” while reducing other non-important areas to save the network bandwidth and the disk space of recorder
  • Encryption and alteration detection functions enhance the security
  • ClearSight Coating: Special coating applied to the surface of the transparent cover that makes it difficult for water droplets to adhere to the dome cover
  • Easy Kitting Package making setting camera easy
