Dallmeier’s HD Picodome is not only impressive for its small size and elegant design, but above all for its high performance capability.
Hybrid Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) dome camera
The Picodome DDF4220HDV provides real-time HD video (720p/30) using the H.264 codec, currently the most advanced standard for high-efficiency video compression, and supports resolutions up to 1.3 megapixel. In addition to HD video over IP, the hybrid camera provides for a simultaneous analogue SD (PAL/NTSC) video output via BNC (CVBS).
The HD Picodome is characterised by its Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and allows to capture images with highest colour fidelity and superb detail reproduction even in scenes with a wide range of contrast and strong backlighting. The excellent low-light performance also provides for clear and low noise images even in low light conditions.
Besides a comprehensive set of automatic and manual image optimisation functions, the camera features many other setting options in order to meet even the most demanding of surveillance conditions.
Easy alignment and commissioning
For the easy alignment of the lens/camera unit, the HD Picodome is equipped with a PPL ball joint (Push, Point & Lock). At a resolution of 720p, the Digital Image Shift function additionally provides for a subsequent digital fine alignment of the image section.
Depending on the requirements, the camera can be conventionally supplied with 12V DC or conveniently operated via Power over Ethernet which allows for an easy, quick and cost-effective cabling and commissioning.
Compact and elegant
The vandal-resistant (IK10) HD Picodome is available as in-ceiling mount variant or as surface mount variant in an IP66 rated enclosure. Both housing variants are characterised by a highly compact construction and the wide range of particularly elegant designs that are available on request.
