Pixim's Orca Chipset Featured in Six New Camclosures From Pelco

Pelco Introduces Pixim-Enabled Security Cameras Featuring Wide Dynamic Range and True Day/Night Operation

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 28, 2007 -- Pixim, Incorporated's award-winning Digital Pixel System® (DPS) technology is integrated into Pelco's new family of indoor and outdoor Camclosure security cameras, models IS90-DW, IS90-CW, IS110-DW, IS110-CW, IS150-DW, and IS150-CW.

Pelco's Camclosure IS Series incorporates Pixim's Orca chipset into small, versatile enclosures to deliver wide dynamic range for accurate color representation and progressive scan video capture with a Day/Night option. Pixim's technology is helping Pelco address video surveillance applications where color accuracy is critical, as well as for challenging lighting conditions, such as glare, direct sunlight, reflections, and strong backlight.

Pelco's IS90 series for indoor applications has two enclosures that can be mounted directly to, or recessed into, a ceiling or wall, with a three-axis positioning system capable of 360 degrees of tilt and rotation. Pelco's rugged mini-dome series for outdoor installations includes the IS110 surface mount enclosure with pendant adapter option and the IS150 suspended or recessed ceiling mount enclosure for medium-security applications that are subject to vandalism.

"Pelco's extensive use of Pixim's chipset technology in their mainstream Camclosure IS Series is a strong endorsement of our product's broad value proposition in the video security market," comments John Monti, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Pixim. "Pixim's per-pixel imaging technology provides Pelco with excellent image quality and color rendition for their industry-leading camera line-up."

DPS technology's image consistency and accuracy overcomes typical limitations of existing analog CCD sensors, which have trouble producing positive subject identification caused by image blooming and smear, as well as limited color fidelity. The 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.

Frost & Sullivan 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.
