What I do at work

Posted in Business, Technicalon Oct 6, 2011

I work for Pelco by Schneider Electric, working on the firmware for IP video cameras.  While you have probably seen our products hanging from ceilings in your favorite airport or supermarket, I find it occasionally hard to brag about our products when our black camera domes looks like every other black security camera dome.

But the quality in a security camera has more to do with the images that come out of the camera than what it looks like, and today I have some photos to show that distinguish our security cameras from our competitors.   A church in Salt Lake City, Utah (I’ll let you guess which one), recently replaced one of our competitors cameras with one of our new SureVision cameras.

One of our competitors installed the camera which took this image, and they had to fine tune it because of some unique lighting conditions:

The church themselves replaced the specially tuned camera with one of our cameras to get this image:

One of the things a security camera operator would want to see is the images of people walking into the building, so they can quickly spot trouble.  Our camera uses wide dynamic range image processing to provide that image when otherwise the image of the person would be washed out.  Notice how you can see outside the window and onto the street. Wow!
