Seawolf, Pixim's newest chip offering, has been integrated into the latest video security cameras developed by Visionhitech Americas, Inc.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - May 31, 2011 - Pixim Inc., a leading provider of imaging chips for enterprise security cameras, announced that Visionhitech Americas, Inc. of Irvine, California has introduced new cameras integrating Seawolf, Pixim's latest chip technology. Visionhitech has developed a Seawolf-powered outdoor vandal dome (VD70D88) that is only 3" in diameter as well as a dual-voltage, true day night box camera (VC58D88).
Through Seawolf, Visionhitech's new cameras offer 690 HTVL effective resolution and the industry's proven best wide dynamic range. In addition, Seawolf-based cameras require just 0.1 lux of illumination to produce usable, color images at a full 30 frames per second.
"Our Seawolf-powered cameras give end users the flexibility they need in their applications while reducing costs. For instance, the small size of the VD70D88 lends itself well to elevator and bus applications. Since it's not easily damaged, it can be placed almost anywhere," explains Scott Hamasaki, president of Visionhitech Americas. "The VC58D88 box camera has an IR cut filter that provides optimal color in daytime and fully realizes the low light sensitivity at night. Plus, with its dual-voltage capabilities, you can select AC power to take advantage of smaller diameter wire or DC power which enables you to easily provide backup power using a PSU/Charger with battery."
"Seawolf-powered cameras are changing the security camera market," says John Monti, Pixim's vice president of marketing and business development. "Pixim's single board camera modules based on the Seawolf chip make it easier for manufacturers to develop compact camera formats. But don't let the size of the camera fool you; all Seawolf cameras produce high quality images in any lighting condition from strong daylight to lowlight."
Pixim Inc. has developed unique imaging technology that revolutionizes the way video cameras capture and process images. Unlike traditional image capture technologies, where each pixel cannot adjust to highlights and lowlights in the same scene, Pixim's patented Digital Pixel System® technology empowers hundreds of thousands of pixels to act like individual cameras constantly self-adjusting. This all-digital system enables Pixim-powered cameras to efficiently capture the whole picture, regardless of lighting condition or application - thus securing the highest resolution, natural color and clarity, while automatically eliminating image-compromising visual noise (e.g., glare, reflections). The result is more than superb image quality; it is accurate, actionable information that gives users the strength of certainty.
Pixim chips are incorporated into over a million security cameras installed in more than 100 countries worldwide. Visit www.pixim.com/cameras for a complete listing of Pixim-based cameras.
