eneo Almira camera recorder : Blind spots are a thing of the past with eneo's new ultra wide angle CCTV camera, the Almira. Because Almira delivers a 360° image field, which means a 100% overview, thanks to its special lens (fisheye). A 3-megapixel (2048x1536) high-resolution CMOS sensor gives permanent brilliant picture quality. The camera is controlled by a separate keyboard (RS-485 Pelco D, additional protocol support is currently in development). Up to four virtual cameras (VCAMS) can be displayed with Almira and controlled with full PTZ functionality. This is an "electronic PTZ", i.e. no mechanical or moving parts are built into the housing. |

The result: operation fully free from wear and maintenance. Pictures can be displayed on the monitor in, for instance, 2 x 180° panorama, 4 x 90° panorama or 360° views. The two video outputs (FBAS) operate independently from one another, so that two users separated far apart can view camera images in different displays and execute PTZ functions. Each of the video outputs has individual keyboard control. The list of additional features is impressive. Almira has an intelligent motion detector and intelligent alarm management - when "Motion Tracking" is enabled, for instance, persons who enter a previously defined zone are also tracked without having to operate a control element.
eneo Almira - Privacy Zones & Sector naming function
Furthermore, presets and preset tours can be saved, and individual tours ("Learn Tours") programmed. Masking of specific zones ("Privacy Zones") is also very straightforward. The sector naming function is especially recommended when it comes to surveillance of large, complex locations such as airport buildings or hypermarkets. When the user pans to a sector such as a supermarket cash desk, the name assigned to this zone is shown on the monitor so that an overview is always displayed.
eneo Almira recorder - Luggage Left function
Objects left in previously defined zones can be "monitored" with the "Luggage Left" function: Almira signals an alarm when the object is removed or when an object has been placed in the zone, i. e. an unattended suitcase in an airport. Almira's range of uses are wide and varied: in addition to airports and shopping centres, banks and railway stations, the camera is ideal particularly for locations where value is placed upon discreet video surveillance, such as in conference and meeting rooms, retail outlets (e.g. jewellers) or restaurants. This is because Almira disappears into ceilings so that it is nearly invisible, and its 360° image field and four virtual cameras allow it to replace the several CCTV cameras that would normally have to be installed for surveillance of an equally large area.
R-01 digital recorder - Almira C-1202 functionality
The full functionality of the Almira 360° CCTV camera in a digital recorder and execute PTZ functions for recorded pictures? This is possible with the Almira R-01 developed especially for the Almira camera. This recorder offers all of the Almira C-1202 functions for recorded video images (PTZ, Zoom, Motion Tracking, Scene Analysis) and still more. In addition to the full PTZ functionality, it features a 4x optical zoom and high-resolution recording: Recording and replay are both at 3 megapixels (thanks to its duplex operation Almira R-01 offers simultaneous recording and replay), the 400GB hard disk drive allows recording times of several weeks to be set. And of course, the Almira R-01 features extensive search functions and pre- and post-alarm recording.
