This CCTV camera was awarded the iF product design award 2014 by the the International Forum Design, Hannover, Germany.

  • 1080p FULL HD images up to 30 ips
  • Newly developed 2.4 Megapixel MOS sensor
  • Multiple H.264 and JPEG streams combined with Panasonic 'UniPhier' technology
  • Face Detection Technology ensures clear face images
  • MEGA Super Dynamic technology delivers clear images and 128x wider dynamic range
  • True day/night capability, SDXC memory

The WV-SW598A IP PTZ dome provides FULL HD quality images and a wealth of features packed into a vandal resistant housing. 90 x extra optical zoom in 640x360 resolution mode. Fog and Sandstorm compensation, advantaged auto tracking and rainwash coat dome cover ensuring always a perfect image.

Using a newly developed MOS sensor, the SW598A provides 1080p FULL HD images across multiple H.264 and JPEG streams.  Using MEGA Super Dynamic technology to deliver 128x dynamic range, the true day/night image quality of the SW598A is ideal in all conditions.

"Packed with features, the SW598A is the most intelligent camera to date.  Face detection allows the camera to adjust product focus to capture a person in shot and also use the XML data to trigger an alarm upon detection if using a compatible recorder.  Auto back focus (ABF) allows easy installation, reducing installation time and ensuring perfect image.

VIQS (variable image quality on specified area) is the latest innovation to the Smart HD range, allowing the camera to have higher resolution only on specified areas of the image, meaning lower bandwidth."

The WV-SW598A provides all the latest Smart HD innovations in an IP66 rated vandal housing, fitted with dehumidification technology, ensuring that it is fit for all outdoor needs.  Also, ONVIF compliant the dome is a must for a wide range of applications.
