The new 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 brilliantly, 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.
What all models have in common is the innovative 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® far 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. The multifocal sensor system thus offers a long service life and long-term investment protection.
