What other products or offerings would you like to highlight, and what are some of their unique qualities?
There are several other core imaging products that we are featuring at ISC West that feature exclusive technologies from Pelco. Perhaps the most trending imaging solution is multisensor panoramic cameras, and our enhanced series of Optera panoramic multisensor cameras are truly best-in-class in this category. They feature Pelco’s exclusive SureVision 3.0 technology that delivers exceptional Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) performance for the most challenging lighting environments, as well as superior intelligence via a suite of built-in analytics. They also feature Pelco’s exclusive Smart Compression technology, which reduces bitrate usage, resulting in up to 70% savings on storage.
Optera panoramic multisensor cameras are available in 360Â°, 270Â° and 180Â° 12MP form factors, all of which provide completely stitched, seamless and blended panoramic views with electronic pan/tilt/zoom (p/t/z) capabilities to put viewers in the middle of a scene while enabling them to focus on areas of interest.
Another imaging exclusive from Pelco being demonstrated at ISC West is our series of ExSite Enhanced Explosion-Proof Cameras. They feature the best in HD surveillance performance for the most hazardous locations and applications. ExSite Enhanced Explosion-Proof Cameras’ unique patent-pending direct drive pan-tilt system is devoid of belts, gears or pulleys to eliminate stray electrical discharge while providing the highest levels of physical integrity. And they’re truly engineered to survive with robotically welded water- and corrosion-resistant stainless steel housings that meet the NEMA Type 4X standard for use in extreme environments, including oil and gas facilities, chemical plants, manufacturing and more.
Last but not least, Pelco is showcasing our line of Sarix Enhanced IP Cameras. They deliver outstanding low-light performance and bandwidth utilization by combining Pelco’s exclusive SureVision™ 3.0 and Smart Compression Technologies.
