Pixim Chips Deployed in DVTel's IP Mini-Dome Camera

IP vandal resistant dome cameras useful for school security applications


Mountain View, Calif.--March 19, 2007 - Pixim, Incorporated's award-winning Digital Pixel System (DPS) technology is integrated into DVTel's 9440W mini-dome surveillance camera. DVTel's Pixim-enabled 9440W IP vandal resistant dome is ideal for schools where accurate image capture is critical in challenging lighting conditions, particularly at entry points such as doors and windows, main lobbies, sports facilities, courtyards, and more.

DVTel's Altitude 9440W is an MPEG-4 based IP camera using advancements in video compression technology to provide both high-frame rate and high-resolution video, while maintaining a significantly lower file size, requiring less bandwidth than other varieties of TCP/IP cameras. The 9440W is the first commercially available TCP/IP vandal dome employing Pixim's latest chipset technology.

DVTel's 9440W fully leverages the wide dynamic range of Pixim's Orca chipset to deliver accurate color and minimal blooming and smear in extreme lighting conditions. Wide dynamic range ensures accurate video capture in challenging lighting conditions, such as glare, direct sunlight, reflections, and strong backlight, 24/7. Even low-light performance is dramatically improved.

"The wide dynamic range offered by Pixim's image capture technology has become a key value-add for DVTel's vandal-proof camera line," comments Ed Thompson, Chief Technology Officer at DVTel. "Our customers demand high image quality and accurate information from our video surveillance systems, particularly in environments with widely changing lighting conditions. This begins with state-of-the-art edge devices such as those enabled by Pixim's DPS technology."

In addition to the 9440W, DVTel's 9540SW/DW Series of Pixim-enabled box cameras are also receiving increased popularity to complement the 9440's mini-dome installations.

Frost & Sullivan named Pixim, Inc. the recipient of the 2006 Technology Innovation & Leadership of the Year Award in the field of video surveillance technology in recognition of its development of the Orca chipset.
