New Network Video Recorder Delivers High-Performance and Scalability in an All-in-One, PC-less Security Solution for Small to Mid-Sized Businesses

MISSISSAUGA, ON (July 8, 2014) – Panasonic Canada Inc., an industry leader in providing integrated video surveillance systems, today announced the Canadian availability of the WJ-NV300 network video recording solution, as part of its portfolio of video recorders.

Panasonic's new WJ-NV300 system is ideal for small to medium-sized businesses in industries such as retail, food service and healthcare looking for the simplicity and reliability of an embedded platform with the scalability and expandability of more sophisticated systems.

"As decision makers continue to adopt more robust security technologies, the need for reliable, embedded video surveillance solutions is essential to safeguard people, property and assets," said Mike Reynolds, Marketing Manager, Security Products, Business Solutions, Panasonic Canada Inc.

The new NV300 system, which builds on the success of Panasonic's popular WJ-NV200 recorder, adds field upgradeable camera expansion, additional video storage capacity and an enhanced dual screen user interface.

"For over 55 years Panasonic has been providing reliable security solutions that feature unsurpassed image quality at competitive prices to the small to medium-sized business," said Reynolds. "With our next-generation WJ-NV300 recorder, Panasonic has enabled security systems operators to achieve advanced quality and scalability without sacrificing performance or enduring undue system complexity."

The NV300 is a standalone network video recording solution designed to deliver an all-in-one, PC-less surveillance solution out of the box. The system delivers full camera viewing, control and recording capabilities through a built-in mouse-driven graphical user interface, and supports dual screen HDMI outputs. Featuring a standard 16 channels of Full HD recording, and the ability to expand up to 24 or 32 channels* with the WJ-NVE30 Additional Camera Kit, the NV300 supports a total recording bandwidth of up to 128 Mbps – twice the rate of its predecessor, the NV200. Support for the optional WJ-DE400 hard disk RAID capable expansion unit can also extend the system's local video storage up to 80TB**.

Additionally, the NV300 features built-in video de-warping processing to leverage the full power of Panasonic's line of 360-degree video surveillance cameras, and integrates seamlessly with Panasonic ASM200 and ASM970 video management clients, allowing integration into larger Panasonic systems.

The NV300 makes managing and sharing surveillance content simple by supporting flexible network configurations via its dual gigabit Ethernet interfaces and offering remote access camera control, viewing, and recording playback and management. Users can even secure faster transfer of video recordings via the NV300's SD or USB memory card slots, or access live monitoring and video playback using Panasonic's Security Viewer 2.0 app, now available on Apple and Android-based tablets and smartphones for remote viewing capabilities.

The WJ-NV300 is now available through authorized Panasonic Canada authorized sales channels. To learn more about Panasonic’s portfolio of integrated security and video surveillance technologies visit:
