Pelco introduces Spectra IV IP camera-dome

Spectra IV IP dome offers flexibility in configuration plus Pelco reliability


Clovis, CA (March 25, 2008) – The introduction of the Pelco Spectra dome over 11 years ago revolutionized the security industry. Since that time, Pelco has become the leading dome manufacturer and now brings to market the industry's first high-performance IP network pan/tilt/zoom dome designed by security professionals specifically for security applications.

The new Pelco Spectra IV IP-based camera/dome positioning system has all the advantages of an advanced network camera together with the features, responsiveness and reliability of the most trusted name in the industry. And Spectra IV IP is anticipated to become the new standard by which every IP-based positioning system to follow will be measured.

"Spectra IV IP offers Pelco customers the ultimate in network dome optical performance, mechanical performance, reliability, integration flexibility and configuration options," says Dan Scroggins, Product Marketing Manager – Positioning Systems. "IP systems users will readily adopt the Spectra IV IP as the new benchmark for IP PTZ domes. And in anticipation of this rapid adoption, IP systems manufacturers are quickly performing the necessary processes to ensure that their products are compatible with Spectra IV IP. This is all enabled by Pelco's open architecture, and a fully developed API development program is there to facilitate third-party integration at all levels. Spectra IV IP could be the network video security product that validates the IP security industry and brings all the players together."

Spectra IV IP provides high-end performance in a network dome, I.E. modularity, advanced features, and broad product line compatibility. It provides seamless integration into all video security applications by delivering first-of-its kind, true hybrid functionality. The Spectra IV IP provides users with complete functionality of a traditional Spectra IV product – including analog video and telemetry control with latency-free operation and redundancy in critical applications – in addition to its advanced networking characteristics. Its modularity affords the user multiple configurations from the same platform, ease of installation, and ease of maintenance.

From the Statue of Liberty to Buckingham Palace, the Sydney Opera House to The Kremlin, Spectra systems continue to deliver uncompromising quality and reliability. Over the years, Spectra's incarnations have included indoor and outdoor, heavy-duty, and stainless steel models. Pelco dome camera systems are continually advancing, and now with the introduction of Spectra IV IP, this changes everything.
