The Panasonic AW-HE40S is a full HD remote camera that can be controlled from a remote location to view the surveillance area. Although this Panasonic ptz camera is commonly used for closed circuit (CCTV) functions, it can be connected to the Internet to manage PTZ actions using a Web browser.
This functionality is extremely important as it saves operating costs by negating the need for many location systems and also lowers integration costs. The primary use for this remote camera is security surveillance but it can serve other purposes like documenting wildlife, time lapse video, sports, lecture recording etc. Whether you are a store clerk manager, a security operations manager or a wildlife photographer you can benefit from this HD camera.
Panasonic AW-HE40S features the latest 1/2.3-type MOS full HD image sensors from Panasonic as well as Digital Signal Processors (DSP) to capture stunning video resolutions in different conditions. The Panasonic AW-HE40S ptz camera has Power over Ethernet+ (PoE) capability where power is supplied by a LAN cable and IP-live video monitoring for Internet use.
It has 30X optical zoom that includes 16X digital zoom and a digital extender. Video output is produced in HDMI format although an IP Image output function is used for IP-live monitoring. HDMI output formats include; 720/59.94p, 720/50p, 1080/29.97psF, 1080/25pF, 1080/29.97p, 1080/25ΰ, 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 1080/50p and 1080/59.94p formats. An audio input is inclusive along with RSN/A232C, IP and RS-422 in/out interfaces for remote control.
As for the recording quality, it uses High Dynamic Range (HDR) recording for capturing objects in motion. Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) is incorporated to reduce blocked shadows and overexposed highlights by synthesizing two images that have different exposure times. Another perk is the automatic Night Mode function that switches to monochrome when it gets too dark. Freeze during Preset enables you to stop video when the camera is swiveling in preset movements that can be set up to 100 positions.
