The Dallmeier 5000 series single sensor cameras are equipped with a new encoder technology. The new versions of the dome, IR and fisheye cameras support H.265 HEVC (high-efficiency video coding) and offer improved object classification with camera-based, AI-enhanced video content analysis (VCA.)

By its nature, the constantly improving resolution of video images demands high bandwidths and large amounts of memory. With the new-generation H.265 encoder in the Dallmeier cameras, data rate can be reduced by up to 50% compared with an H.264 stream, without sacrificing resolution or image quality. When used in conjunction with the latest Dallmeier recording systems, a significant reduction in network and memory capacity can be achieved.

Another advantage of the new 5000 series cameras is the new generation of VCA. Neural networks are implanted in the camera, supporting the classic VCA and thus enabling significantly more efficient object classification in the camera itself. After a short learning phase, the system is capable of delivering a still more precisely defined analysis of the recordings and more effective use of automatic video analysis functions such as lossless and multiple auto tracking.

The camera models DDF5250HDV-DN and DDF5450HDV-DN (dome), DF5250HDV-DN/IR and DF5450HDV-DN/IR (box IR) and SDF5450HD-DN (fisheye) can be ordered now and will be ready for delivery from 19 August 2019.
