Pixim's Orca Chipset Enables Dallmeiers' Picodome the World's Smallest Ultra-Wide Dynamic Range Minidome Camera

Dallmeier's Pixim-enabled Picodome Features Ultra Wide Dynamic Range To Deliver Excellent Image Quality In A Compact Form Factor

Mountain View, Calif.-June 27, 2007.... Pixim, Incorporated's award-winning Digital Pixel System® (DPS) technology is the foundation for Dallmeier's DDF3000APV Picodome, the world's first and smallest vandal-resistant IP66 weather-rated mini-dome to employ Ultra Wide Dynamic Range (UWDR) imaging technology. With the addition of the Picodome, Dallmeier now features twelve color surveillance cameras using Pixim technology, including a variety of box, minidome, composite, and TCP/IP offerings.

Dallmeier's Pixim-enabled Picodome is ideal for any applications that require high image quality and a small camera profile such as transportation systems (buses, transit, shipping, rail), elevators, bank teller lines, retail, cash registers, schools, and more.

The Picodome is a high-resolution UWDR color camera featuring Cam_inPIX technology - based on DPS technology - that delivers excellent image quality and color rendition 24/7 both indoors and outdoors, in hot and cold climates. Pixim's Orca chipset employs the industry's first digital image sensor that captures light and converts it to a digital signal directly in the pixel resulting in accurate information collection by reducing the noise in the acquired signal.

Pixim's Orca chipset achieves dynamic range of up to 120dB, capturing both dark shadows and bright highlights in the same scene at the same time easing camera installation and providing better data for downstream video analysis. Pixim's DPS technology also suppresses all smearing and blooming artifacts that are common with older analog image sensor technologies.

"Dallmeier's Pixim-enabled Picodome sets a new benchmark for enterprise-class security cameras, meeting the need for a small, IP66 weather proof, vandal resistant minidome, that delivers perfect pictures in any conditions 24/7," comments Kai Leuze, Director of Dallmeier Components. "Dallmeier continues to build on its award winning family of surveillance cameras with Cam_inPIX technology to bring to market the best and most innovative security cameras possible. Our decision to use the latest Pixim DPS technology as a basis for our own Cam_inPIX development has been proved wise."

The Picodome's factory presets result in natural color reproduction with both NTSC and PAL image transfer options. The Picodome supports remote Up-the-Coax (UTC) management of cameras via the video cable using a Dallmeier recorder, PView Station, or via a UTC control box. A push-and-lock rotating ball enables the user to easily configure the camera to point in any direction.
