Panasonic’s new software assists automatic tracking of a person shot by a Panasonic Remote Camera. With the ability to track a single person, this software is well suited to such environments as education and video conferencing.

With a PC connected to the same network as your camera system, the software automatically detects a person in front of a PTZ camera and makes the camera follow that person to allow for easier control operations.

The use of "motion detection" technology makes it possible to track the subject with minimum tracking error regardless of where the person is facing. This allows to keep the lecturer tracked even when is writing on a blackboard showing his/her back to the camera.

The sensitivity of the tracking function can be adjusted to the amount of movement of the tracking target, therefore increasing accuracy. 

All current Panasonic PTZ software is PC-based only.

- Enhanced User Authentication Function
- AW-UE150 series was added to supported cameras.
- New “Human Body Detection” with “Deep Learning” (64-bit Version only)
- New stream support with H.264 & NDI|HX. 
- New “Use Face Data from Library” feature
- Pre-set GUI Improvement 
- Improvement of Face Recognition GUI


GDPR Information:

With the optional feature of Facial Recognition for Auto Tracking, GDPR can be a concern in public spaces.

When installed and using AW-SF100/200, all personal information is managed on your local Network, PCs and Servers.
Panasonic does not have any access to the facial recognition stored and AW-SF100/200 does not connect to the internet to share any information and operates offline.
The only time AW-SF100/200 is required to be online is the first time trial or license activation.

In addition, the acquisition of any face data is not performed automatically, but is planned and performed manually by the user.

Panasonic also has no influence on any other legal requirements with regards to data security, copyrights, etc.

These requirements will have to be checked by the implementing authority who is using the AW-SF100/200.

You are given the option to select either a full, full body or upper body view of the tracked target when setting up. In addition to this, the auto-tracking software also includes the option to mask specified areas of the camera view to ensure that surrounding objects are not accidentally or unnecessarily detected. It is also possible to completely exclude an entire area to minimise the space that is tracked.

It is also very simple to set up a low-cost tracking system by installing the auto-tracking Software onto a PC and connecting to an integrated camera. New installation of sensors and other equipment are not necessary.

This software is available in two versions:  the Stand-alone version that is to be used on a single PC, and the Web application version that enables control from a tablet, smartphone or desktop PC. Users may install either of these according to their operating environment.

AW-SF200G is chargeable software. Panasonic offers a 30-day trial period, during which customers can use it for free. After the trial period has expired, it must be activated by means of a key code (license) that customer can purchase from any Panasonic dealer.

“Motion Detection” and “Face Recognition” used for high-precision auto tracking with minimum tracking error

The use of high-performance “Motion Detection” and high-accuracy “Face Recognition” enables high-precision auto-tracking of the subject with minimum
tracking error, regardless of the direction the person is facing.

GUI for intuitive setting

The auto-tracking settings can be easily made with an intuitive GUI, showing only the necessary icons to minimize labor and assist smooth operation.
Tracking adjustment tools, such as masking, limiters, tracking disable zone and sensitivity level adjustment, are also available.

Using IP-based software to support remote operation

Adoption of IP-based software brings system flexibility and provides IP connection (IP streaming/IP control), installation/operation of camera in classroom or remote location.

Simple, low-cost installation to easily migrate to the existing system without additional devices

If auto-tracking software is installed on a PC*1 or Server, it is possible to easily set up an auto tracking system by connecting an AW-UE70W/K 4K, AW-HE40 Series or AW-HE130W/K HD integrated cameras. Since the system configuration is simple and
new devices do not need to be added, the initial cost can be reduced.

AW-SF100 has standalone and Web application versions to choose from; AW-SF200 operates on a server

You can choose to use AW-SF100 as a Web application, so it also supports control from a tablet, smartphone, desktop PC, etc. Providing centralized control of multiple cameras, AW-SF200 uses a floating license for flexible operations matched to the user environment.
