Starting from September 14th over 75,000 readers of GIT Security voted and Panasonic are delighted to announce that the super dynamic weather resistant full HD PTZ Dome Network Camera, WV-SW598, was chosen for the award for the ‘CCTV’-Category at the GIT Security Awards 2014.

A Range of Features to Suit Surveillance Requirements
The WV-SW598 IP PTZ dome provides full HD quality images, a wealth of features packed into a vandal resistant housing and the largest zoom in the security industry with 30 times Full HD zoom (90 x extra optical zoom in 640x360 resolution mode). The exclusive rainwash coating dome cover prevents dirt and water droplets from sticking to the surface providing constant clear images without expensive cleaning and maintenance costs. In addition, the fog and sandstorm compensation and advantaged auto tracking ensure a perfectly clear image.

Using a newly developed MOS sensor, the SW598 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 SW598 is ideal in all conditions.

Packed with features, the SW598 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) ensures easy operation and quality images in all light and weather conditions.

Unique Panasonic Technology
Thanks to our unique dehumidification technology, the WV-SW598 can easily installed and used in all weather conditions without any condensation affecting the image quality.
