Key features of the new Spectra HD 1080 system include a 1/2.8-inch Exmor CMOS imager with an integrated 20x optical zoom lens, delivering 2.0 megapixel resolution (1920×1080 at 30IPS). Built on the Sarix technology platform, it features a dual-processor design for guaranteed streams and high-profile H.264, which is 10 per cent more efficient than base-profile H.264, for the more efficient compression. Sharing a common browser with all Sarix-based cameras means easy configuration, and allows users to have advanced pan/tilt management features through a browser.
Spectra HD 1080’s solid pendant design eliminates the subtle vibrations that can occur in demanding installations, ensuring a better image. The optically ‘perfect’ dome delivers high image quality over the entire viewing range of the system.
The Spectra HD 1080 system comes with a powerful suite of advanced analytics built into the camera system, including Object Tracking, which allows users to define the size of the object of interest and track the subject through the full 360 degree rotation of the camera. Other analytics tools included are Abandoned Object, Adaptive Motion, Camera Sabotage, Directional Motion, Loitering Detection, Object Counting, Object Removal and Stopped Vehicle. 
“We understand that there is nothing more important to our customers than image quality, and Spectra HD 1080 delivers the clearest possible images,” says Todd Dunning, director, Product Management, Schneider Electric. “The Spectra HD 1080 is the ideal choice for installations that need a high performance, HD PTZ dome.” 
Schneider Electric is now taking orders for Spectra HD 1080 and will begin shipping on January 18.
