BGWT’S Robert Meachem says the company is pushing further into the Tier 1 video surveillance segment with Panasonic cameras, including the latest 5MP H.265 Extreme range.
“While others in our industry are focused on volume and driving down price in the camera segment, Panasonic has remained focused on innovation and brilliant build quality,” Meachem said. “The facts are that the government and enterprise segments that managed huge infrastructure, assets, risk and maintenance programs can’t afford to take short term views on the returns on its capital investment.
“In many cases products are required to be operational in the field for 7+ years and the notion of failure within that time frame is simply an unacceptable risk and cost. The cost of failure is far beyond the product cost alone and this is why Panasonic and a few other Tier 1 brands are growing their market share.”
As part of Panasonic’s strategic push into the key verticals of public safety, safe city, corrections, logistics and transport, Panasonic Australia has just released through BGW Technologies its new 5 Mega Pixel H.265 Extreme range of cameras capable of capturing images at up to 30 frames per second. The 5MP models come in 3 types – S1550L Outdoor Box Camera, S2250L Indoor Dome Camera, and S2550L Outdoor Dome Camera.
All models come with iA (intelligent Auto), Super Dynamic 120dB, Colour night vision (0.0044 to 0.07 lux), IR LEDs to 40 metres, H.265 & Smart Coding, FIPS 140-2 Level 1-compliance, and native integration to Milestone Systems and other VMS solutions.
“This new 5MP range adds to the ongoing expansion of the Panasonic camera range in the last few months with more product releases planned in the 2nd half of this year,” Meachem said. “We have the 5MP cameras in stock now and we are happy to talk to anyone about doing shoots outs and demonstrations.”
