In contrast to single-sensor cameras, the MFS technology works with several sensors ("multisensor"), each operating with different focal lengths ("multifocal"). That way, a huge area can be surveyed in exceptional detail with very few Panomera® systems.
In addition to a vastly improved overview and better control of any large spatial context, Panomera® helps customers to significantly reduce infrastructure and operating cost.
... but about minimum resolution density (MDR). The minimum resolution density according to the global standard DIN EN 62676-4 is defined as "pixel per metre" (px/m).
For accurate analysis results and court usability, it is not the resolution of a camera that is decisive, but how many pixels per meter are achieved in which image areas.
Panomera® can display distant objects with the same resolution as objects in the foreground and the minimum resolution density can be planned precisely in each area. This allows a uniform minimum resolution density to be achieved over the entire surface (or section).
These values must be met, no matter how far away a particular person or object may be.
Panomera® works with several sensors, each of which selects its own exposure strategy in order to achieve ideal saturation. While with other cameras an average value is determined, Panomera® exposes bright areas shorter and dark areas longer.
The multifocal sensor system Panomera® was specially developed for the all-encompassing surveillance of expansive areas. With Panomera®, enormous widths and also areas with large distances are displayed in a completely new resolution quality. Depending on the customer’s needs, the resolution can be scaled nearly limitlessly.
In addition, the minimum resolution density can be precisely defined already in the planning phase. This is the only way to ensure uniform minimum image quality and so ensure consistent data quality for court usability and analytics.
The smaller number of cameras also significantly reduces infrastructure requirements (masts, cables, power, etc.) as well as labour for installation, operations, maintenance and service.
Unlike PTZ cameras, which can only ever be operated by one person at a time, with Panomera® any number of operators can traverse the entire scene without regard for each other. So even though all operators are connected to the same camera, each of them can select a preferred view of interest and zoom or pan within the view at will.
Various Panomera® models are available depending on the application area: Whether they are intended to cover large areas, broad expanses, long distances or smaller, complex coverage areas. pecial systems have also been developed specifically for stadiums or airport runways, for example.
Did you know? Panomera systems can also be easily integrated into video management systems from other manufacturers.
