CLOVIS, CALIF. – Aug. 22, 2013 – Schneider Electric today announced the release of its new Pelco Spectra High-definition (HD) 1080 30X dome positioning system, featuring a clearer image with six times the resolution of standard definition domes. The Spectra line has been a cornerstone of security applications for nearly 20 years, delivering unequalled reliability and drive/control technology with advanced image quality to deliver unparalleled live and forensic video detail.
Today’s news delivers on the company’s commitment to being IP-driven, customer-focused. The Spectra HD 30X adds to Pelco’s continually expanding IP camera offering, part of more than 50 new IP cameras to be released in 2013.

Key features of the new Spectra HD 1080 30X system include:
• The best image quality: The Spectra HD 1080 30X delivers the clearest possible images with its 1/2.8-inch Exmor CMOS imager with an integrated 30X optical zoom lens, delivering 2.0 megapixel resolution (1920x1080 at 30IPS). In addition, the camera is capable of 12X digital zoom, making it ideal for environments where the camera must be placed high or focus on objects that are far away.
