Panasonic launches Elite CCTV series

Bracknell, Berkshire (UK)

The latest specially selected premium range from Panasonic incorporates features that are designed to go far beyond simple surveillance, with the cameras all including smart coding compression and secure communication encryption. All the cameras in the range also offer a minimum resolution of full HD, with a selection at 4K.

In addition, vandal resistance, weatherproofing and the rain wash coating, unique to Panasonic, ensure the cameras can continue to acquire useful evidence even in challenging conditions.

Gerard Figols, European Product Marketing Manager, said, “The Elite range demonstrates the excellence of Panasonic security cameras. It’s a small selection of our wider camera portfolio. The beauty of the embedded technology is that it helps to reduce the overall cost of ownership. For instance, Panasonic’s True 4K technology has efficient compression software which means recordings are typically 1/7th of the usual size of a 4K recording. For end users, that means a high quality security system doesn’t necessarily need to involve higher storage costs.”

As well as 4K box, dome and 360 degree camera technology, the range includes Panasonic’s full HD weatherproof bullet camera (WV-SPW532L), which has the ability to automatically detect and optimise video quality within a given image, prioritising disk space for the areas where movement is detected, and overall helping to save network bandwidth and improving the cost effectiveness of the system for operators.

Meanwhile, Panasonic’s new Ipro Extreme camera platform builds on the efficiency already offered by H.265. With the addition of the company’s own smart coding technology, bandwidths can be decreased by up to 75 per cent, compared to H.264.

Slow up take of biometrics in access market

Ever since the first fingerprint readers came to market more than a decade ago, access control industry stakeholders have eagerly anticipated the prospect of finally eliminating cards from their systems.  However, as of 2015, biometric reader sales accounted for just 30 percent of access control reader sales in the Americas. Meaning they ranked third, still behind both 125 kHz proximity and smart card readers in popularity. "Hardly the credential revolution that manufacturers were hoping for." says Jim Dearing, analyst at research company, IHS Markit.

Smart parking solution meets the challenge

In the last two decades, global economic growth has led to a tremendous increase in vehicles in almost every corner of the world. Reports have shown that in cities, most high rise apartment buildings have had difficulties managing their parking spaces. ID card issuing, billing, entrance control and payment made the entrance procedure very inefficient. Traditional smart card management systems limit the access to those who hold an allocated smart card. However, cards could be stolen and the processing of a lost card is inconvenient.

Nedap’s Sensit was installed to offer real-time occupancy information of all individual bus parking spaces at the station. This real-time information enables easy guidance of buses to the nearest available parking space. The implementation was realised by Eaglevision.
