NETTUNO MegaDome From CIEFFE, Megapixel PTZ Dome Camera

Product Profile

High definition and PTZ 360° fast movement

MegaDome's main innovation lies in the fact that it enables the use of 1600x1200 resolution combined with PTZ movement.  Autofocus and backlight management of images coming from a moving camera, mechanical and electrical issues, all those harsh difficulties to face when merging megapixel resolution video with fast and accurate PTZ movement have been settled by CIEFFE's R&D department.

High definition and MPEG4 compression

NETTUNO MegaDome is also the first megapixel PTZ dome to apply MPEG4 video compression algorithm on high-resolution video (it has a 1600x1200 pixels resolution - 2 megapixels).  The outcome is that though the dome is still delivering high quality video at a very fluid frame rate (15 fps at maximum quality and resolution), MPEG4 compression allows terrific savings in bandwidth and storage requirements.  The compression of high resolution video is 10 to 20 times more effective (depending on the monitored scene) than standard megapixel compression technologies on the market, all JPEG based.

Key features:
