Pixim Chipsets Take Top Placements in Independent Tests of Best Wide Dynamic Range Surveillance Cameras

Pixim Chipsets Are Key Ingredient in Surveillance Cameras Delivering the Best Wide Dynamic Range

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 21, 2007 -- In recent test results published by Protector Magazine, the leading physical security publication in Germany, surveillance camera entries with Pixim chipsets claimed four of the top five rankings for best wide-dynamic range security cameras, out of a total of sixteen cameras tested.

Dallmeier, Honeywell, JVC, and Verint cameras, all enabled with Pixim's award-winning chipsets with Digital Pixel System® (DPS) technology, were ranked at the top of the wide dynamic range scale in the competition. Each of the four cameras are differentiated with unique feature sets, but the overriding factor in determining excellence of wide dynamic range image quality is the Pixim chipset integrated into each product offering.

Pixim's DPS image sensor converts light to a digital signal at each pixel, enabling each pixel to have independent, optimized exposure times to deliver the highest image quality and color accuracy. DPS technology's image consistency and accuracy is known for overcoming typical impediments of existing analog CCD sensors, which have trouble producing positive subject identification caused by image blooming and smear, as well as limited color fidelity.

According to Protector Magazine the Dallmeier DF3000A-DN is noted for the "...sharpness of its images with exceptionally convincing color rendering, color intensity and outline of details." Honeywell Security's HCCWD484X stood out for its "...ability to handle side lighting, as the image remains very good, where the color rendering is perfect even in the dark part of the image." JVC's TK-WD310-e(B) front lit images impressed judges, "...with dark and bright areas perfectly reproduced." Verint's S2600e delivered "...a harmonious picture impression, and a good sharpness, where the white balance is accurate and the color rendering neat."

Frost & Sullivan recently named Pixim, Inc. as the recipient of the 2006 Technology Innovation & Leadership of the Year Award in the field of video surveillance technology in recognition of its development of the Orca chipset.
