“After looking at a number of alternatives for our new security cameras, we determined that Pixim had the best solution, with a roadmap that matches our view on the future of networked video surveillance,” said Dieter Dallmeier, CEO of Dallmeier Electronic.

“Using Pixim’s chipset we were able to get our first camera to market with great image quality in an incredibly short period of time. We see Pixim’s DPS technology as providing us with a camera platform for the long term.”

DI-CAM is now in manufacturing and is being demonstrated at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags” />Las Vegas this week. It is part of an integrated solution that includes a set of cameras, a DVR, and a comprehensive video management system that allows the images to be recorded and remotely controlled and accessed over an IP network.

The Pixim D2000 Video Imaging System is a highly integrated chipset utilizing Pixim’s innovative Digital Pixel System(R) technology that provides an image sensor, image processor, and the intelligent software to develop advanced feature, high quality color security cameras.

“Dallmeier is one of the leading companies in the CCTV market with their network DVR products. This partnership is an excellent marriage of Dallmeier’s proven network expertise and our state-of-the-art digital camera technology,” said Elie Antoun, President and CEO of Pixim.

“Our relationship with Dallmeier will ensure that we continue to deliver products that provide the right capabilities demanded of leading edge cameras, especially as the market evolves towards greater use of networking.”
