Grundig has added a competitive new IP, Full HD, indoor flat dome to its already comprehensive IP camera range. A key feature of the flat dome is its dual, triple and quad video streaming options at up to 1080p Full HD resolution in H.264 and MJPEG compression modes. This functionality is also found on Grundig’s fixed, vandal-resistant and fully functional PTZ domes, box cameras and tube cameras. Progressive scan image processing using a CMOS sensor further enhances image quality.
Roman Reger, product manager at Grundig, explains, “Multiple video stream technology at up to 2MP Full HD is found across most of our IP camera range, even with our cost-effective flat dome. We have enabled up to four independent video streams to be processed simultaneously, at up to 30FPS. This allows efficient video transmission and storage, whilst saving network bandwidth. The 2MP stream is ideal for recording and the lower resolution D1 or CIF video streams are optimized for viewing on monitors or smartphones.
“The flat dome camera also benefits from Progressive Scan technology. Each complete image in the video stream is updated at 30 FPS, rather than only alternate lines of the image used by the more common Interlace technology. This also creates less motion blur. The flat dome video format is 16:9, which can be rotated through 90° to provide portrait or landscape views. The portrait setting is particularly relevant for narrow fields of view like corridors, stairs and passageways.”
Five privacy zones, motion detection and Micro SD / SDHC recording are included and image quality has been further enhanced with ATW, WDR and DNR functionality.
