In typical surveillance applications, mostly megapixel and PTZ cameras are used. However, these reach the limits of their performance capabilities particularly when observing large spatial contexts.
The Panomera® multifocal-sensor technology combines the advantages of both camera technologies to secure public spaces and large areas with substantially fewer systems and infrastructure components.
The result is a better overview, lower cost, and any number of "virtual PTZs".
With a megapixel camera you keep the overview but lose the required image quality at longer distances.
