Regensburg, 30 July 2020 – Dallmeier electronic, one of the world's leading manufacturers of video security technology, introduces an interactive simulator for comparing megapixel, PTZ and multifocal sensor technology. This enables end users, installers and those who are interested to compare the different camera technologies and experience the “Panomera®“ effect themselves.

The task of delivering maximum overview together with excellent image definition presents a significant challenge for many common camera technologies such as megapixel, PTZ or multi-sensor cameras. Particularly during zoom operations, something must be sacrificed: either the essential detail resolution (megapixel and multi-sensor cameras) or the overview (PTZ). Accordingly, the camera images are often not usable or pertinent scenes are simply not recorded at all.

Experience the difference yourself
In the new and interactive Panomera® simulator, users can now see for themselves how the patented multifocal sensor technology Panomera® from Dallmeier addresses this problem: Up to eight sensors with different focal lengths (“multifocal“) capture both nearby and distant image areas in high resolution. An intelligent “stitching“ software then runs in the background, merging the individual images from the camera lenses so that users can capture even large expanses or long distances in a constant, precisely definable minimum resolution.

The customer benefits are a much better overview of the situation, simultaneous access capability for many operators in high resolution, and better analysis capabilities due to the high-resolution display of spatial contexts, even over very large areas. One Panomera® camera system thus replaces many conventional cameras and significantly reduces both the infrastructure expense required and the operating costs. Besides many industrial enterprises worldwide, for example 14 of 20 clubs in the English Premier League, more than 19 German cities and many airports around the world rely on Panomera®.

About Dallmeier

Dallmeier: Turn images into assets.
With pioneering video technology from Germany.

In 1984 Dieter Dallmeier founded what is now Dallmeier electronic – not in the proverbial garage, but in a garden shed in Regensburg, Germany. Today, the company, which can justifiably call itself a hidden champion for video information technology "Made in Germany", has several hundred employees worldwide, more than 250 of them at the company headquarters in the centre of Regensburg alone.

Our customers: From commercial enterprises to World Cup stadiums
Dallmeier's camera, recording, software, and analysis solutions optimise security and processes for B2B end customers in a wide range of industries in over 60 countries. The focus is on users from the casino, smart city, airports, logistics, stadiums, and industrial sectors. But also, banks, critical infrastructure facilities as well as medium-sized companies from all sectors.

Low total cost of ownership "Made in Germany"
With pioneering innovations, Dallmeier has succeeded time and again in placing itself at the forefront of technology: From the world's first digital image storage system with motion analysis in 1992, the patented "multifocal sensor technology" Panomera® with its "Mountera®" mounting system, to the latest Domera® camera family, which allows up to 300 camera variants with only 18 components. These and many other innovations provide real, tangible customer benefits. And with a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and a high Return on Investment (ROI) they can easily compete with systems produced and supplied from low-wage countries.

Cybersecurity, data protection and ethical responsibility through maximum vertical integration
With 100% "Made in Germany", we also guarantee our customers the highest standards in data protection, cybersecurity, and ethical responsibility. With high quality and short supply chains, we also ensure – almost incidentally – sustainability and environmental protection. From our prestigious headquarters in the centre of Regensburg, Dallmeier not only carries out its own research and development but also the complete manufacturing process – from component to product to solution.
