Visitors to IFSEC 2017 will have the opportunity to experience a number of new and innovative cameras from Pelco by Schneider Electric. Headlining is the range of ExSite enhanced explosion-proof cameras which have been engineered to survive in demanding environments. Also on show will be the Optera panoramic multi-sensor cameras which deliver panomersive HD imaging.
‘Where Pelco imaging technology was perhaps a step behind the competition, we are clearly taking the lead once again with new solutions like our ExSite and Optera cameras,’ claimed Kevin Saldanha, Director Product Management, Pelco by Schneider Electric. ‘ExSite cameras are engineered to survive like no other with a virtually indestructible housing built to eliminate the possibility of electrical discharge which can cause explosions in some environments. Optera panoramic cameras make multi-sensor panoramic cameras ideal for mainstream use with the right combination of performance, reliability, cost-efficiency and now VMS compatibility.’
ExSite cameras’ robotically welded water- and corrosion-resistant stainless steel housing meets the NEMA Type 4X standard for use in extreme environments such as oil and gas facilities, chemical plants, manufacturing and more. Its patent-pending direct drive pan-tilt system does not use belts, gears or pulleys while providing the highest levels of physical integrity. The cameras also feature SureVision technology to capture images in difficult lighting conditions where highly contrasted lighting sources exist within the same scene. Other features include an enhanced WDR of 130 dB, advanced low light performance with a claimed sensitivity of 0.05 lux, anti-bloom technology, 3D noise filtering and enhanced tone mapping.
Optera cameras provide stitched and blended 360°, 270° and 180° panoramic views with electronic PTZ capability across the entire image for wide area surveillance and forensic scene analysis. Featuring SureVision technology, Optera cameras feature smart compression technology, which reduces bitrate usage, resulting in up to 70 per cent savings on storage according to the manufacturer. Additionally, the cameras are integrated with over 20 VMS solutions including exacqVision, Genetic, Milestone, OnSSI, Vista, Verint and Qognify.
