Cameras with New Imaging Technology
Pelco introduces a new imaging technology with its CCC5100 Series SIMD (Single-Instruction, Multiple Data) Cameras. They provide color reproduction over a wide range of lighting conditions with high image quality and dynamic range. The technology of Pelco's 5100 SIMD cameras digitizes light at the point of capture?in real time?and each pixel determines its own exposure time on an individual basis. This process is used instead of each pixel operating at the exposure time demanded by the average brightness of the entire scene (a situation that can result in bright areas being ?blown out" and dark areas being underexposed).
