Multifocal Sensor Technology Now Integrated
With the integration of the Dallmeier Panomera systems into the Genetec Security Center version 5.7 SR4 or higher, the special camera functionality is now available to users of the unified security platform for the first time. This provides completely new options for observing and monitoring expansive areas. The Panomera multifocal sensor systems have allowed customers all-encompassing monitoring of wide areas since 2011. The integration requires only a regular Genetec camera license. The camera system intelligently stitches the images of up to seven detail sensors and one overview sensor into an overall picture in a single camera system. In contrast to traditional solutions, such as combining megapixel and PTZ cameras or multi-sensor systems, all areas of the entire scene are comprehensively monitored in high resolution. Operators are able to zoom into multiple areas at the same time while the high-resolution display of the overall action continues to be maintained. This eliminates the need to switch between camera perspectives, and also eliminates unnecessary reference to building and area maps, while significantly reducing the number of cameras and screens to be monitored. This makes the camera operators’ work much easier. In addition, all views are recorded in high definition, which allows operators to perform any number of zooms at an extremely high resolution – in all detail areas of the overall action – at a later time. This is very important functionality for complex situations, for example, or for a successful forensic evaluation that would not possible with PTZ and single sensor solutions.
