Until now, level of detail has been the key quality parameter for surveillance cameras, as clear images at all times was the most important feature for high security. True, security personnel must see all relevant information in great detail to react quickly and take appropriate action. But what if a moving object leaves the camera’s field of view? The AUTODOME IP family of pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) cameras is the answer. These enable users manually to keep track of persons of interest as they move – even at speed, far beyond a fixed camera’s field of view.
