Outdoor surveillance takes on futuristic features

December 2004 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

High in performance, futuristic in design, easy to install and weatherproof - that is the all-new Panasonic WV-CW370 Series Colour Outdoor Surveillance Camera, launched on the South African market mid-2004 by NPC (Electronics) Limited (Panasonic).

Housed in a stylish, streamlined, silver metallic body, the WV-CW370 comprises a Super Dynamic II camera with an 8x variable-focal lens and a 1/3"-type CCD that delivers high-resolution 510-line colour (High mode) or 570-line black-and-white images, making it perfect for all day, all night surveillance (pre-programmable or manual switching). Clear, full-colour images are captured in lighting as low as 1 lux (0,15 lux in black-and-white mode) with up to 32x electronic enhancement enabling crisp images even in dimly lit spaces.

Ideal for outdoor surveillance of high-rise office buildings, suburban office complexes, movie theatres, stadia, museums, shopping malls, airports, terminals and parking lots, the WV-CW370's housing meets the IP66 international standard for dust and moisture protection. The unit also has a built-in fan/heater that turns on automatically when temperatures fluctuate; and a built-in sun-shield, which allows the WV-CW370 to be located in direct sunlight.

Best of all, the WV-CW370 comes with everything required for installation. Step-by-step instructions are provided for three installation options, depending on the application. Once installed, all cabling is concealed to leave a clean finish.

"The WV-CW370 offers high performance capabilities and is aesthetically pleasing, too," says Mags Anthony, director, Panasonic Broadcast and Closed Circuit Video Equipment. "Now outdoor surveillance is futuristic in both functionality and appearance."
