Regensburg (Germany), 7 June 2023 – The new Dallmeier camera planning tool “PlanD” makes the creation of professional video planning a playful and intuitive process that no longer requires any 3D software knowledge. The clever combination with a state-of-the-art graphics engine enables impressive 3D visualisation and camera view simulation.

The great advantage of PlanD lies in the combination of innovative functionality with outstanding user-friendliness. The tool‘s UX design consistently avoids nested menus and guides the user intuitively through the planning process using universal icons. Within minutes, users can design buildings, fences and many other structures, place cameras, detect shading and view and adjust precise resolution qualities.

Less time means less costs
The combination of a cloud-based application and a local application means that projects can be accessed from anywhere in the world without compromising security standards: The server infrastructure of the application, which was 100% developed by Dallmeier, is located entirely in Germany. Special attention was paid to efficiency: For example, the “share” function and an optional live budget calculation allow the end customer to be involved without any loss of time. The intuitive user interface, interactive collaboration and direct feedback significantly accelerate the planning phase of an entire project.

Third party cameras, thermal systems, and IR lighting
In addition to cameras from the Dallmeier Panomera® and Domera® families, authorised Dallmeier partners can also configure third-party cameras, thermal systems and lighting such as white light or IR illuminators.

The main features of PlanD are:

  • Revolutionary UX design for intuitive operation
  • A choice of 2D or 3D environment to suit individual requirements
  • A 3D drawing function to plan building structures in detail and identify visual obstructions or shadows
  • Real-time visualisation of shading to ensure optimal camera placement
  • A 3D representation of the camera view for maximum realism
  • The ability to calculate budget and storage requirements live for a realistic cost estimate
  • A share function for optimal collaboration and communication between project participants
  • Configuration options for optical / IR / thermal cameras to meet different application requirements

“PlanD is revolutionising the planning process for video technology projects. With our innovative tool, users can independently create professional camera plans without any knowledge of 3D software. The intuitive user interface, interactive collaboration and direct feedback significantly accelerate the planning phase and enable direct customer involvement,” says Nicolai Priller, Head of 3D & Planning Services at Dallmeier. “We see PlanD as a big step forward in camera planning, especially in video technology with customer proximity, realism and user experience.”

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.
