Pelco Launches High-performance Spectra-enhanced Series IP Dome System

Pelco by Schneider Electric officials today announced the release of the all-new Spectra Enhanced Series High speed PTZ dome. According to company management, this new top-tier dome provides industry-leading image quality with double exposure, TRUE wide dynamic range (WDR) imaging, 60 frames per second video (fps), extreme low latency PTZ, and  a whole host of features including Single Cable POE installation methods in all models, and the full suite of Pelco video analytics. These features, along with SureVision 2.0 image processing and 130dB WDR, make Spectra Enhanced an ideal discreet, PTZ video surveillance solution for most any application, in nearly any lighting situation.

“The launch of Spectra Enhanced represents a huge leap forward in video quality, low-latency motor control, and many new features that bring excellent value and performance to our customers,” said Craig Beal, senior product manager of PTZ cameras, Pelco by Schneider Electric. “Spectra Enhanced provides full HD 1080p video at a lightning-fast 60 frames per second that virtually eliminates motion blur and clearly shows the details in both live and recorded video. In addition, these cameras include SureVision 2.0 image processing that allows the camera to overcome even the most difficult lighting situations.”

Beal added that the electronic and mechanical architecture of Spectra Enhanced have been optimized to remove latency from the system.

“This optimization provides incredibly smooth motor control and makes the camera very easy to use. PTZ and video latency have been reduced by an average of 28% and 23% respectively. Pan, tilt, and zoom are far faster and more accurate than any IP PTZ cameras ever built. On top of that, you can install the camera using a single Ethernet cable with Power over Ethernet in all models, this helps reduce your installation time and cost. We are excited because the camera brings a lot of value, users instantly see and feel the difference.”
