Panasonic BB-HCM527A Network Camera

See There When You Can't Be There™
Meet our new dome-shaped, ceiling-mounted network camera with a zoom lens. The 4.6 zoom makes it possible to check places in detail. Its 73° wide viewing angle allows you to recognize much broader range at the single sight. Thanks to its Power Over Ethernet (PoE)1 capability, the camera can be installed in places where it is difficult to provide power, like on factory and warehouse ceilings, or near a building entranceway or elevator hall. This lets you grab every business possibility by breaking distance and time barriers with Zero Distance Management2.

Wide-Angle Lens
The use of a 73° wide-angle lens lets you monitor a wide area in a single view. The coverage can be increased even more by combining pan and tilt operation.

Simultaneous MPEG-4 and JPEG
Cameras simultaneously send MPEG-43 images in three resolutions (VGA4, QVGA and SCIF), and JPEG images in the same three resolutions in favor motion, standard and favor clarirt image-quality types. MPEG-4 is recommended for viweing smooth motion images, and JPEG is recommended for recording higher quality images.

Progressive Scan
Progressive scanning eliminates the blurring that oftern occurs with interlaced scanning, to produce high-quality images.

SSL Support
Recorded data is sent in encrypted form, making it very difficult for someone else to "eavesdrop" on the network.

Motion Detection Function
This function detects changes by reacting to a camera threshold or sensitivity that is set in advance on the PC. Captured images can also be stored temporarily in the camera5 or sent to you be email6 or FTP data transfer7.

Recording Program8
Video data can be downloaded to a PC using optional software. In stores, this allows for more detailed monitoring of customer behavior, and of employee attitudes toward customers, information that cannot be obtained from still images alone.

Easy PoE Supply
The power is supplied through the Ethernet cable, so the network camera can be installed on the ceiling very easily since the additional work for the power outlet is not required.

Optional Ceiling Flush Mount Bracket
Using the optional bracket9, you can mount everything except the lens neatly inside the ceiling space.
