Camera dome packs a compact punch

April 2006 Surveillance

Pelco is proud to announce the newest member of the Spectra family, the Spectra Mini.

With this product announcement, Pelco introduces the world's smallest, full-featured dome. It is a system that provides the popular functionality of the Spectra III in a miniature, cost-effective package. A small 4,1" dome houses a powerful high-resolution colour integrated optics package with 10X Optical Zoom and an 8X Digital Zoom. Keeping with Spectra tradition, the Spectra Mini utilises Pelco's famous Proportional Pan and Tilt technology for precise camera control at full zoom. Spectra Mini can continuously track subjects, even as they move directly below the camera's location. The familiar Spectra family on-screen menus allow set-up of the Mini's 64 presets, single pattern and window blank features.

The Spectra Mini mounting options are flexible and can be recessed or surface mounted right out of the box with no additional hardware requirements. Standard on-board UTP circuit and 24 V power make installing the Spectra Mini simple. Additionally, the Spectra Mini is visually similar to Pelco's ICS090 Camclosure series, which enables users to deploy both systems for an aesthetically seamless application.

"Consumers have consistently asked for a smaller, cost-effective alternative for their indoor camera needs," says John Dolan, senior product manager for Pelco. "The Spectra Mini's powerful feature set makes it the perfect choice for many applications that require pan/tilt/zoom functionality but not the size and cost of larger domes." Retail, banking, office and healthcare are just a few of the markets that will benefit dramatically from this product.

Pelco products are distributed locally through Reditron.
