• WV-SF438


360-degree Super Dynamic Dome Network Camera

The WV-SF438 IP dome provides FULL HD quality images and a wealth of features packed into a compact housing.

Using a newly developed 3.1 MOS sensor, the SF438 provides 1080p HD images across multiple H.264 and JPEG streams.  Using Super Dynamic technology to deliver 128x dynamic range, the simple day/night image quality of the SF438 is ideal in all conditions.

Packed with features, the SF438 is the most intelligent camera to date.  Face detection allows the camera to adjust product focus to capture a person in shot and also use the XML data to trigger an alarm upon detection if using a compatible recorder.  VIQS (variable image quality on specified area) is the latest innovation to the Smart HD range, allowing the camera to have higher resolution only on specified areas of the image, meaning lower bandwidth.

The WV-SF438 provides all the latest Smart HD innovations in a compact housing. Ensuring is fit for all indoor needs.  Also, ONVIF compliant the dome is a must for a wide range of applications.


Offering a wide range of image modes

・Double Panorama Mode
When the camera is installed on the ceiling, the entire area under the camera is displayed as two 180° panoramic images.

・Panorama Mode
When the camera is installed on a wall, the 180° area in front of the camera is displayed as a panoramic image. Blind spots that occur at the left and right sides of the image when using a 104° horizontal wide-angle camera (WV-SW155) are captured clearly.

・Quad PTZ Mode
4 VGA size (640 x 480 dot) images can be displayed on one screen whereas Images in all four directions from the camera installation location are displayed on one screen. You can click on areas within images that you want to see, display a 360° fisheye image at the side of the display, and move to positions that you want to see simply by clicking.

・Single PTZ Mode
Displays one quad VGA size (1280 x 960 dot) image where the display area can be changed by clicking the area you want to see in the image.

・Fisheye Mode
Displays full 360° fisheye images, enabling monitoring without blind spots. Shooting in all directions means that the path of everyone walking beneath the camera can be monitored. Images can be displayed in 3Mbps or 1.3 Mbps modes.

・4 Stream Mode
Four VGA size (640 x 480 dot) images are transmitted. The operator sets the orientation beforehand.

Intelligent Resolution Technology

With the Intelligent Resolution technology, 3 areas - outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas - are automatically detected and optimum signal processes are performed to each area.
Apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness, the innovative technology Intelligent Resolution precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in the most effective way for it. As a result,images are naturally clear and crisp suitable for all surveillance applications.

Smooth PTZ operation without mechanical action

You can change the display area within the 360° image captured by the lens to achieve the same effects as those obtained by a pan or tilt function. But because these operations are not performed mechanically, the image operation is far smoother than conventional mechanical pan or tilt functions. Additionally, changing the orientation of the lens on conventional pan and tilt cameras affects the recorded images and areas displayed for other users, whereas such operations on this camera do not affect the monitoring images of other users and enable continuous recording.
In the Quad PTZ Mode, you can set one of the screens to auto pan mode for “endless panning” (displaying the full area while rotating the shooting range). You can also set up to 16 preset positions for rotational patrolling.
