An Israeli start-up company, Adaptive Imaging Technologies, revealed a powerful, new video surveillance camera that has a 1,000 MPX (mega-pixels) or 1 GPX (gigapixel) of resolution. Traditional surveillance cameras range from 1 MP to 15 MP; the new camera, known as a “panoramic telescope,” has up to 100 times the resolution of current offerings.
While a gigapixel is more than what most users would need for security/surveillance systems, the 1 GP camera provides security system users the ability to zoom in on fine details and small objects. The panoramic view camera makes otherwise indistinguishable items, such as facial features and clothing logos, recognizable.
The panoramic capabilities of the new camera may provide multiple camera systems with two or three cameras in order to cover large, open areas like city parks and parking lots. The camera is able to record 360° views and can zoom on multiple objects–including human faces–simultaneously. This capability makes the camera ideal for security checkpoints, border crossings, and police large crowd surveillance operations.
As time passes technology improves, high-definition camera prices will eventually become less-expensive, making conventional security systems easier to install and maintain.
