Panasonic Announces Availability Of New 3 Series Dome Network Cameras

Next-Generation 720p Dome Cameras Offer Premium Performance and Exceptional Value, Delivering High Definition Images at 60 frames-per-second and up to 133dB Enhanced Video Dynamic Range

Panasonic System Communications Company of North America, a leading provider of integrated security and surveillance solutions, recently announced the availability of its next-generation 3 Series camera platform. Built on the same high-performance UniPhier LSI platform as its flagship 6 Series line,the new 3 Series cameras provide the latest in high definition surveillance capabilities at a price point that is ideal for small to mid-sized enterprises, government and public safety applications.

The new 3 Series cameras deliver high definition video images in 720p resolution and an up to 133dB of dynamic range thanks to its Enhanced Super Dynamic and Adaptive Black Stretch (ABS) technologies, making the 3 Series cameras ideal for low-lighting conditions. The 3 Series cameras produce high definition resolution at 60 frames per second, enabling the capture of exceptionally clear images of moving objects, and feature the ability to encode up to four simultaneous H.264 streams while maintaining use of bandwidth via the UniPhier’s very efficient Shadow Compression Engine.

The entire 3 Series line offers outstanding video images in low-light at less than 0.01lx illumination and its 3D Noise Reduction (3DNR) and Multi-process Noise Reduction (MNR) ensure both bright and dark areas are reproduced to deliver best-in-class performance with minimum video noise and accurate color reproduction even under low illumination. The new 3 Series models also feature an SDXC memory card slot offering high-capacity H.264/JPEG edge-recording with flexible record modes including alarm-recording and backup-recording in the event of network failure.

Customers in markets such as healthcare, hospitality, education and retail are expanding their video surveillance systems and looking for advanced IP-networked devices that deliver premium quality without sacrificing performance. Panasonic’s new 3 Series cameras are the ideal choice for customers seeking to adopt enterprise-grade video surveillance technologies that deliver the right level of performance and value to meet their specific needs.
