Dallmeier launches DOMERA

Issue 2 2022 Surveillance

With the DOMERA 6000 camera series, Dallmeier presents a completely new generation of dome cameras. The multi-talent camera delivers top notch video analysis results even under the most demanding light conditions.

This is supported by AI-based edge analytics as well as image capture with the latest generation of sensors in four and eight megapixels. With a theoretical total of well over 300 conceivable combinations, the modular DOMERA housing and mounting system is usable for most indoor and outdoor video applications.

Rapid installation and adjustment to changed surroundings is assured by the ‘Dallmeier RPoD’, with remote-controlled, motor-driven lens adjustment in three axes, the PTRZ (pan, tilt, roll, zoom) function. For lighting, the first ever ring of IR and white light LEDs located outside of the bubble is used. The system thus eliminates lighting problems that beset traditional dome cameras.

Bold claim in the premium segment

Particularly when specifications in terms of image quality, security and analytics performance are high, end customers and installers often have difficulty finding the right solution for their requirements among the wide range of available cameras: How good are image quality and analytics? How easy or difficult is it to set the camera up and how difficult is it to adjust viewing angles or image sections afterwards? Are there any lighting problems, e.g., from scratches in the bubble or reflecting walls? And finally, questions on all aspects of quality and durability and of course, cybersecurity and privacy, are becoming increasingly important. With the new DOMERA 6000 camera series, Dallmeier makes the bold claim that it has the right answers to these requirements.

Edge analytics with AI for a wide range of analysis applications

Fitted with a high-performance SoC, the DOMERA cameras can perform latest generation AI-based edge analytics. The reliable detection and classification of objects such as people or vehicles thus enables a whole range of basic analyses such as people counting, loitering or intrusion. Users can then depict many possible analysis applications from these for their specific requirements using various parameters via the web-based user interface. By activating relays and by supporting standard protocols such as MQTT, it is possible to automatically trigger various related actions, e.g., activating third-party lighting or alarm systems.

In addition, the loudspeaker available as an option allows manual or automatic audible communication. Regular updates serve to guarantee that the neural networks are always up-to-date and undergoing constant training. Upon request, the Dallmeier experts will also develop or train neural networks for customer-specific requirements.

Highest image quality and rapid, web-based setup

The 6000 series offers high image quality with four or eight MP resolution, HDR functionality and extreme light sensitivity and the cameras are consequently ideally suited for indoor and outdoor use under difficult light conditions. A further special highlight is the completely new adaptive IR and white light lighting system, for which a registered design application has already been filed. Here, the lighting is integrated in the housing ring, which means it is mounted outside the bubble. This design guarantees a long service life, as it eliminates the problems associated with conventional IR dome cameras, in which tiny scratches in the bubble cause interfering reflections. Being adaptive, it also minimises effects such as reflection from walls.

The motor-driven, triaxial adjustment with the Dallmeier ‘Remote Positioning Dome’ (RPoD) saves setup time. Its PTRZ (pan, tilt, roll, zoom) function enables users to adjust the image section and the area to be captured and even to change them later from anywhere via web interface. Thus, a 90-degree rotation for corridor mode can be set up in no time. The initial configuration and setup for the camera is browser-based and does not require any additional software.

Over 300 variants with just 18 components

An especially useful feature for installers: Theoretically, the DOMERA components can be combined to create well over 300 different products. This is made possible by a modular system of 18 components: four camera base models, various lighting rings and several housing and mounting variants. Moreover, support for ONVIF S and T profiles means that the cameras can be integrated in any VMS system. Consequently, 90% of all typical video applications can be implemented easily and with utmost quality and security, with minimal training and low warehousing requirement on the part of the installer.

"The customer's perspectives were central to the development of the DOMERA 6000 series from the very beginning. For end customers we offer maximum image quality and through the AI analytics a user advantage that far exceeds pure video functionality," says Dieter Dallmeier, Founder and CEO, Dallmeier Electronic. "In turn, the installer is able to offer end customers real added value, with minimal outlay for configuration, installation and setup. Combined with the quality for which we are known and the correspondingly low support burden, excellent commercial options for installers present themselves in this area too."
