Panasonic Introduces Integrated Thermal Imaging Cameras

14 Dec 2013

Panasonic Cameras To Bring True 24-Hour Surveillance With Enhanced Detection Abilities To The Security Line-Up

Today Panasonic System Communications Company Europe (PSCEU) is proud to announce the all new Panasonic integrated thermal surveillance camera solutions for true 24 hour day/night surveillance, with a high-performance specification, fast and easy installation and robust design. Panasonic thermal cameras come as an exciting development for high priority security applications within transportation, utilities, government, commercial and financial markets.

The announcement comes from the European R&D and Engineering Centre as the first thermal imaging cameras in the long heritage of Panasonic surveillance and security solutions.

Panasonic thermal cameras complement Panasonic’s already extensive range of surveillance and security solutions which includes full high definition 1080P cameras, monitors and recording solutions, cloud based recording and storage, business intelligence video analytics, IP and analogue cameras, 360 degree view cameras and infra-red cameras for low lighting conditions.

Panasonic thermal camera’s with inbuilt motion detection not only allows night time vision without illumination, but also complements Panasonic vision cameras during the daytime, giving the following enhancements;

* Ability to see people and vehicles through foliage and smoke

* Easily identify the presence of people who try to blend into the scenery through camouflage

* Detect person at up to 1.5km (640x480) and 1km (384x288)

* Detect vehicles at up to 4km (640x480) and 3km (384x288)

* Inbuilt motion detection enables the creation of effective virtual fences or areas to be monitored for intrusion with significantly reduced false triggers compared to vision cameras

* Enable clearer and easier monitoring of scenes by security personnel for people and vehicle movement

Powerful Specification, High Performance

Behind its high quality germanium window, Panasonic thermal cameras deploy a powerful uncooled silicon microbolometer thermal detector available in a choice of 384x288 and 640x480 resolutions with sensor frequency rates of below 9Hz or 25Hz and above. The 384x288 sensor has a thermal sensitivity of 50mK, whilst the 640x480 sensor has a thermal sensitivity of 70mK. A spectral sensitivity rating of 8μm to 14μm enables detailed clarity even on the darkest of nights or most difficult of scenes. Panasonic thermal cameras are a powerful electronic sensor and security measure for the most challenging operational circumstances. Available in a range of lens sizes from 15mm to 45mm with other sizes available on demand for special applications.

Connectivity is well covered with two H.264 and one JPEG network interfaces and smart features such as Motion Adaptive Interlace / Progressive Conversion enable clear viewing of moving scenes.

Video Motion Detection can also be programmed to trigger alarms along with Command Alarm and Video Loss depending on specific requirements, whilst it is possible to always display the camera title within the output image for faster identification of threat location and greater real time situational awareness.

Panasonic have also ensured ONVIF compliancy and the Panasonic thermal camera solution is set up for H.264 transmission by HTTP protocol with popular mobile terminals iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Android all supported.

Fast and Easy to Install

Intelligent PoE+ provides both network connectivity and power supply in a single cable, reducing the number of cable runs required and cutting setup time whilst Plug and Play compatibility with Panasonic recorders and software ensures additional speed of install.

Panasonic thermal camera units are also designed to be lightweight utilising a polycarbonate main body and to simplify cable management the housing swings away from the mount during installation.

Mounting options include wall, pole and 8 languages are supported through the multiple language user interfaces for maximum flexibility.

IP66 Rugged & Robust Reliability

Aluminium mountings and IP66 rated resilience means the Panasonic thermal camera offers signature Panasonic reliability, even in the most testing of conditions. Through the use of a blower and heater, continuous operation in a range of temperatures from -30°C to +55°C is possible and a sunshield further protects the unit from extreme sunlight.

Ready for a Range of Applications

Panasonic thermal cameras are designed to enhance the extensive existing range of Panasonic solutions in a broad range of high priority security and surveillance applications.

Particular areas include;

Transportation Airports, railways and sea ports

Utilities Power, water and gas facilities

Government Military and border security use

Commercial Research and data centres, manufacturing, financial and banking organisations where cash is frequently handled

With more models planned throughout 2014 to serve even more specialist market applications from marine to further extremes in temperature conditions, today’s announcement of the Panasonic Integrated Thermal Imaging Camera comes as an exciting landmark in the development of the complete Panasonic surveillance solution.
