HDR and GDPR ready, with edge-storage

Issue 2 2021 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

The capabilities of miniature surveillance cameras are growing constantly. With the new Dallmeier Picoline 5050 series, users in various industries can enjoy the benefits of a camera system which delivers 5  MP performance in an exceptionally compact format.

Intelligent functions offer further added value. The cameras are available in in-ceiling mounted, surface-mounted and box housings. The external diameter of the surface-mounted variant is barely 93 mm.

The cameras in Dallmeier's Picoline series are developed and manufactured entirely in Germany and are equipped with H.265 encoding and a high-resolution image sensor with excellent light sensitivity. They are able to deliver detailed colour images with optimal memory and network efficiency even in low light conditions.

The high dynamic range (HDR) function offers significantly more details in images with high dynamics than the classic digital WDR (wide dynamic range). Other features include the combination of video analysis and search functions, SmartBackfill technology to compensate for network outages without an extra SD card, and a portfolio of features and functions for data protection and data security.

The in-ceiling variant is designed especially for discreet installation in suspended ceilings. Meanwhile, the surface-mounted variant can also be installed inconspicuously with a tiny footprint on ceilings or walls. Because of its particularly compact construction, the box version is also ideally suitable for discreet or unobtrusive installation (e.g. at cash machines) and in weatherproof housings for use outdoors. The 5050 series box camera is available in two variants, with a varifocal lens having a focal length of either 3-10 mm or 12-40 mm.

Capturing fast movement in high resolution and HDR

The high resolution of the sensor and the sophisticated image processing technology enable image capturing in realtime with a frame rate of 60 fps at 1080p, or up to 30 fps with a resolution of 4 MP. The HDR function captures each image with two special settings, which are combined in realtime to produce a well-balanced image that provides much greater detail in both bright and dark areas.

The integrated realtime video analysis uses advanced analysis functions such as intrusion detection or line crossing to detect movement and objects in the uncompressed image. When used with Dallmeier recording systems and client software, the SmartFinder function also enables semi-automated searching for events through the rapid analysis of stored objects and metadata. As ONVIF-compatible systems (Profile S and Profile T), the cameras can also be incorporated in many different third-party video management systems.

Automatic compensation for outages

The camera is equipped with a RAM memory (Dallmeier SmartBackfill memory) which is activated in the event of a brief network outage (e.g. spanning tree, bursts). The video stream is transmitted and then integrated automatically and seamlessly in the recording as soon as the connection is restored.

The cameras of the Picoline series include comprehensive security features which can be adjusted flexibly to reflect the requirements of each customer. Like all Dallmeier systems, when used with Dallmeier software and recording systems, the Picoline series also offers a full portfolio of data protection and data security functions, from privacy masking to authentication procedures, end-to-end encryption or security gateway functions. When used with third-party systems, the cameras operate on the basis of the functions offered by those systems.
