Dallmeier has introduced new models of the Panomera multifocal sensor technology, the “Baseline”, “Topline” and “Nightline” series which 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 the option for well-lit scenes. Topline, with a light sensitivity of 0.1 lux and a frame rate of 30 fps is for good to moderate illumination. Nightline, with a light sensitivity of 0.002 lux and a frame rate of 30 fps, is ideal for night-time applications.
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. What all models have in common is the lens and sensor concept; with Panomera a huge area can be surveyed from a single location, for the multifocal sensor technology supplies an 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.
