The patented Panomera Multifocal Sensor System is a completely new camera technology particularly developed for the extensive video surveillance of large scale areas. Enormous expanses and areas are captured in a completely new resolution quality in real time. This results in significantly lower infrastructure requirements. Where previously several megapixel cameras would have been necessary, a single Panomera® Multifocal Sensor System is now sufficient.
The Panomera 360° Multifocal sensor system has been designed with a focus on securing large rooms from a single location. The innovative combination of high-resolution sensors offers an outstanding dynamic range of 130 dB UWDR effectively and allows the unique recording of a complete half-space (half-sphere) in real time. This offers a resolution of more than 125 px/m up to a distance of 17 m, making it possible to recognize people on an area of 929 sqm. The observation with 62 px/m is even supported on an area of 3,778 sqm, which corresponds to more than half a football field.
The innovative lens sensor concept of the Panomera 360° multifocal sensor system is based on precisely measured and pre-focused lenses that are optimally matched to the extremely high-resolution image sensors. The individual lens sensor units are automatically calibrated over the network using the Panomera AutoCalibration software.
Video Content Analysis
The optional Video Content Analysis (VCA) detects movements and objects in the uncompressed image and analyzes them in real-time (depending on the analysis resolution) with highly developed analysis functions such as Intrusion Detection or Line Crossing. The detected events can be used to trigger the recording of a SMAVIA recording system. Together with the detected objects and the corresponding metadata, they are stored in a database. This allows the targeted search and evaluation of the recordings by SMAVIA Viewing Client with the SmartFinder function.
The latest variants of the multifocal sensor system are equipped with encoder technology that enables Video Content Analysis supported by AI (Artificial Intelligence) functions based on neural networks in the camera. This provides a significantly more powerful object classification. After a short training phase, the system finally allows an even more targeted evaluation of the recordings and more effective use of automatic functions such as lossless and multiple auto-tracking.
The multifocal sensor system captures and stores all areas of the object space in maximum detail resolution. It does not matter whether the operators in live mode concentrate on a certain area (multiple detail zoom) or whether interesting areas are displayed in detail on the basis of video content analysis (multiple auto-tracking). The Panomera recordings always contain the entire action and allow for the evaluation of each incident.
The sophisticated image processing algorithms of the Panomera 360° multifocal sensor system allow a geometrically correct and almost undistorted display of the monitoring area (linearly scaled in horizontal and vertical direction). This allows the operator a completely integrated object tracking on the monitor as well as a unique overview for the evaluation of finest details even on long distances.
