Introduction of WV-CS954 Color Dome And WV-CP480 Series Color Fixed Cameras.

New York, NY (March 9, 2005) – Panasonic Security Systems, a division of the recently re-structured Panasonic System Solutions Company (PSSA), showcased the company’s new line of Super Dynamic III (SDIII) cameras at an event staged in New
York City to introduce the revolutionary camera technology. The two new models include the WV-CS954 Color Dome Camera and the WV-CP480 Series Color Fixed Cameras.

“You will not find security cameras with more performance and feature versatility than Panasonic’s new line of SDIII cameras,” said Steve Surfaro, Director of the Enterprise
Project Group, Panasonic Security Systems. “Aside from the breakthrough levels of performance afforded by Panasonic’s exclusive SDIII technology, these new cameras incorporate the most extensive array of features available to deliver exceptional image definition and balance even in the most challenging security applications.”

SDIII offers numerous performance attributes including: 128x dynamic range; pixelbased digital contrast correction; Auto Image Stabilizer; Scene Change Detection; 30X optical zoom (300X electronically); Adaptive Digital Noise Reduction to minimize image streaking when viewing moving images; 540 lines of color resolution; and extreme low light sensitivity in color (0.5 lux) and BW (0.06 lux).

Panasonic’s new WV-CS954 Color Dome Camera sports a sleek new design that Panasonic is implementing across its wide range of security systems products. The new all-in-one color dome camera features Auto Focus to maintain image detail and clarity
across its extensive zoom range; Auto Tracking to follow an individual’s movements within the camera’s field of view; Day/Night operation; privacy zone masking; built-in digital motion detection; digital-flip for automatic 180º turning; 360º endless fine panning at a max speed of 400º/second; RS-485 communications; alarm inputs/outputs; VD2 internal synchronization; and 256 presets. It is the most feature-rich dome camera available.

The WV-CP480 Series Color Fixed Cameras feature Panasonic’s exclusive Auto Back Focus technology to assure sharp focus when the cameras switch from color to B/W operation and back to color again. A unique mechanism physically moves the CCD
within the camera to achieve the optimal focus in the prevailing light. Additional performance features include: Day/Night operation; built-in motion detection; electronic
shutter from 1/60 to 1/10,000 sec; electronic sensitivity enhancement; 2H vertical enhancement; and VD2 synchronization.
