Multifocal images in the dark

June 2016 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

The Panomera lines differ primarily in light sensitivity and frame rate. Baseline, with a frame rate of 12.5 fps and a light sensitivity of 0.5 lux is an excellent choice for well-lit scenes. Topline, with a light sensitivity of 0.1 lux and a frame rate of 30 fps is an all-round talent for good to moderate illumination. Nightline, with a light sensitivity of 0.002 lux and a frame rate of 30 fps, is ideal even for night-time applications. Thus any situation at all can be mastered, including those where lighting is poor.

The models within the individual series differ by the number of sensors they have and thus by their aperture angle and the distance up to which persons can be recognised or identified. Despite the large variety, it is still easy to choose the most suitable Panomera model: As soon as the appropriate line has been selected on the basis of illumination, the right Panomera can quickly be found based on the expanse of the scene and the desired recognition range.

The multifocal sensor systems of the Nightline series are equipped with the latest image sensor and encoder generation with an extremely high light and infrared sensitivity. They are equipped with an ambient light sensor and a removable IR cut filter and can switch automatically between Day and Night modes. The cameras of the Nightline series are suited if contrast, clarity and colour fidelity are required even in low light conditions, or IR sensitivity is required in night mode.

What all models have in common is the lens and sensor concept: With Panomera, a huge area can be surveyed from a single location, for the multifocal sensor technology supplies a unique overall view of the entire scene even while capturing the finest details, including those at large distances. The result is a significant reduction of infrastructural demands: In places where, in the past, several HD or megapixel cameras would have had been required, now, one Panomera multifocal sensor system is sufficient.

Panomera exceeds the conventional Full HD 1080p standard and megapixel resolution. Regardless of which part of the area under surveillance an operator concentrates on and no matter when, with Panomera all events are entirely covered at all times. Therefore, an incident can always be re-constructed to be used as evidence in court, no matter where it took place and even at a later point in time, and individuals involved can be identified. Panomera provides for a full overall view with minimum wear and almost no maintenance.

Dallmeier will take a tour through South Africa for some live demonstrations of the Panomera multifocal sensor camera technology. If you want to experience the Panomera effect for yourself, watch out for the Panomera trailer or request your personal live demo.

Besides the MFS technology, a series of other IP cameras including dome cameras or box cameras with integrated infrared IR illumination as well as different Dallmeier recording servers, workstations and video management software will also be displayed live.

The Panomera trailer will start its tour in Johannesburg and then move on to Pretoria, Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and many more South African areas. Between fixed show days there will be enough time for personal live demonstrations on request.
