The new solutions provide wireless remote access to both live and recorded

users to wirelessly access their video surveillance network no matter where
their work takes them – including outdoors or in warehouses, commercial
kitchens, machine rooms or other harsh environments. Each Toughpad features
802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and optional embedded 4G LTE or 3G mobile broadband,
providing for near-limitless mobility. Solution options include:

    powerful, full-featured mobile surveillance management platform. Utilizing
    Panasonic’s WV-ASM200 video management software, users can control and
    view live feeds from up to 256 directly connected network cameras, and
    access recordings from up to 100 recorders, directly from their Toughpad
    tablets. The Toughpad FZ-G1 is a fully-rugged, 10-inch tablet featuring
    the Windows® operating system and a 3^rd Generation Intel® Core™ i5-3437U
    vPro™ 1.9GHz processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology.
  *Toughpad FZ-A1 - WJ-NV200 i-PRO SmartHD Network Disk Recorder Solution:
    Designed for remote viewing and full control of up to 16 network cameras,
    this solution connects wirelessly to Panasonic’s WJ-NV200 Network Video
    Recorder offering an easy-to-use, economical method for mobile
    surveillance management. The fully-rugged, 10-inch Toughpad FZ-A1 can be
    equipped with Panasonic’s special Android Remote Control app, available in
    June, to control camera recording and viewing functions of the WJ-NV200
    Network Video Recorder which enables full remote pan/tilt/zoom camera
    control and live viewing. The app also allows users to remotely search
    recordings by date and time for playback, and can register and access up
    to 50 recorders. The Toughpad FZ-A1 runs on a Marvell® ARMADA PXA2128
    1.2GHz Dual-Core Processor with an embedded hardware security processor,
    making it FIPS140-2-(Level 2) compliant for U.S. government use.

“This new solution is a great example of Panasonic’s longstanding commitment
to helping our customers become more productive, more connected and more
innovative,” said Greg Peratt, Panasonic video solutions integration team
senior director. “By providing remote access to surveillance monitoring and
control via our new rugged, enterprise-grade Toughpad tablets, we’ve put the
security operations center in the palm of our customers’ hands, providing the
mobility that today’s business environments demand while maximizing the
flexibility and efficiency that keep facilities protected and secure.”

Panasonic offers a range of easy-to-integrate, IP-based network security
cameras with advanced technologies and superior features such as, H.264 high
efficiency video compression, multiple simultaneous video IP streams, super
wide dynamic range (MEGA Super Dynamic), and advanced Auto Back Focus Cameras
among others. Along with a full line of analog cameras, network and digital
recording solutions, encoders and decoders, server-based systems and displays,
Panasonic’s comprehensive security solutions are made for numerous vertical
market applications such as food services, education, healthcare, gaming and
public safety.

Introduced in 2011, Panasonic’s Toughpad line of rugged, enterprise-grade
tablets feature MIL-STD-810G all-weather IP65 dust- and water-resistant
designs, and are able to survive a drop of 4 feet or more – assuring reliable
performance under circumstances that render typical consumer-grade tablets
non-operational. Specifically designed to meet the needs of mobile workers,
they include daylight-viewable touchscreens, heightened device security and
long-life batteries.

Panasonic’s Mobile Security Control Room solution, along with its additional
security solutions and technologies for vertical markets, is available for
viewing at the Panasonic booth (booth # 14035) at ISC West in Las Vegas, April
9–11, 2013.
