Schneider Electric have announced the release of its new Pelco™ by Schneider Electric Spectra™ High-definition (HD) 1080 dome positioning system, featuring a clearer image with stronger resolution without sacrificing low-light or programmable performance. The Spectra line has been a cornerstone of security applications for nearly 20 years, delivering unparalleled reliability, drive/control technology and image quality.

Designed for security professionals who demand the very best in image quality, Pelco’s Spectra HD1080, built on the Sarix™ technology platform, is an all-digital system that delivers 2.0 megapixel resolution, high-profile H.264 compression and built-in analytics.

Key features of the new Spectra HD 1080 system include:


·       The best image quality: The Spectra HD 1080 delivers the clearest possible images with its 1/2.8-inch Exmor CMOS imager with an integrated 20x optical zoom lens, delivering 2.0 megapixel resolution (1920x1080 at 30IPS).

·       Sarix technology at its core: Built on the Sarix technology platform, it features a dual-processor design for guaranteed streams and High-Profile H.264, which is 10 percent more efficient than base-profile H.264, for the more efficient compression. Sharing a common browser with all Sarix- based cameras means easy configuration, and allows users to have advanced pan/tilt management features through a browser.

·       Solid pendant design, optically perfect bubble: Spectra HD 1080’s solid pendant design eliminates the subtle vibrations that can occur in demanding installations, ensuring a better image. The optically perfect dome delivers flawless image quality over the entire viewing range of the system.

·       Built-in analytics: The Spectra HD 1080 system comes with a powerful suite of advanced analytics built into the camera system, including Object Tracking, which allows users to define the size of the object of interest and track the subject through the full 360 degree rotation of the camera. Other analytics tools included are Abandoned Object, Adaptive Motion, Camera Sabotage, Directional Motion, Loitering Detection, Object Counting, Object Removal and Stopped Vehicle.


“We understand that there is nothing more important to our customers than image quality, and Spectra HD 1080 delivers the clearest possible images,” says Todd Dunning, director, Product Management, Schneider Electric. “The Spectra HD 1080 is the ideal choice for installations that need a high performance, HD PTZ dome.”

With its Pelco video portfolio, Schneider Electric is a world leader in the design, development and manufacture of video security systems. Spectra HD 1080 builds upon the long history of imaging excellence that has made Spectra one of the most trusted high-speed dome systems in the industry, protecting some of the world’s most treasured landmarks. It is available in indoor and outdoor models and is ideal for any environment. Schneider Electric is now taking orders for Spectra HD 1080 and will begin shipping on January 18.
