Pixim and CIEFFE announced today the availability of the CIEFFE NETTUNO camPX network surveillance camera with POE (power over ethernet) capability, based on Pixim's patented Digital Pixel SystemŽ (DPS) technology.

CIEFFE's NETTUNO camPX incorporates Pixim's latest DPS technology, the Orca chipset, to achieve all-digital superior picture quality, delivering excellent images in both normal and WDR scenes in any lighting conditions, 24/7. Pixim's image consistency and accuracy overcomes typical impediments of existing analog CCD technologies to provide positive subject identification caused by variable lighting and limited color accuracy.

Pixim chipsets combine impressive and powerful features that include excellent low light performance (0.5 lux in color), wide dynamic range (120dB max), a progressive scan imager with global shutter that minimizes motion artifacts, and high Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) even at high temperature.

CIEFFE's NETTUNO camPX addresses the demand for cost-effective, high-performance, all digital, wide dynamic range (WDR) network video surveillance cameras coupled with the CIEFFE Digital Management System that features web-based intuitive interfaces and powerful tools to enable easy system setup and configuration.

"Thanks to Pixim's DPS technology we were able to design a very low noise camera with true Progressive D1 resolution that allows us to efficiently stream video using our multi encoder technology and the H.264 (MPEG4 Part 10) or MPEG4 Main Profile algorithm," explains Fabrizio Colciago, Technical Director of CIEFFE. "Our compression algorithms provide state of the art technology in all digital video compression while delivering Pixim's Orca chipset's excellent image quality."
