Panasonic has announced the availability of the Aero-PTZ (WV-SUD638), its new robust PTZ CCTV camera.
The WV-SUD638 debuted approx. a month ago and could be seen at Security Essen. According to the manufacturer’s announcement it will be available from October 2016. Aero-PTZ (WV-SUD638) provides Full HD 60fps imagery with a 30x optical zoom lens. The new CCTV PTZ camera has tough fibreglass body resistant to both erosion and salt corrosion. It can be suitable for all the circumstances from arctic to desert weather conditions. (Although, I wouldn’t test it in a volcano crater 🙂 )
Available in three colours, the camera is IP67 rated and vandal proof to IK10 standards. It has a sphere pan-tilt mechanism allowing endless 360-degree panning and a 90° to -180° tilt range.
The camera features hybrid image stabilisation technology and gyro-sensors to minimise the effect of external vibrations on imagery.
Besides, the super dynamic function ensures a wider dynamic range compared to conventional cameras.
Designed for applications at height, at sea and on ports, piers and bridges. The camera’s active sense technology responds to external conditions, initiating a built-in wiper, heater and defroster.
According to the marketing
Gerard Figols, Product Marketing Manager for Panasonic Security Solutions, said, “The Aero PTZ is the most rugged security camera on the market and is capable of withstanding more extreme conditions than ever before. It will reliably produce sharp, crisp images, whatever the weather.”
The 360⁰ aerodynamic spherical design minimises wind resistance. It allows the camera to operate successfully at wind speeds of up to 215km/h (135mph). A ‘radius bodyline’ helps deter snow and dirt build-up on the light-weight, fibreglass body. The hybrid image stabilisation feature is unique to Panasonic. It means that even when the camera is being moved significantly by the wind, the image produced remains of evidential quality, the manufacturer claims.
