Dallmeier Panomera® Multifocal-Sensor Cameras

The innovative camera-solution requires significantly fewer screens and cameras for increased spatial control and reduced TCO. Integrated into Security Center via ONVIF / Visual Tracking

In contrast to conventional combinations of PTZ and Megapixel cameras, the patented Multifocal-sensor system Panomera® works with up to 8 sensors ("multisensor") in one casing, each operating with different focal lengths ("multifocal") thus covering a different area of the entire space. That way, a huge area can be surveyed in exceptional detail with very few Panomera® systems.

This almost completely eliminates the need for PTZ cameras, as multiple users can open zoom windows in the screen that allow high-resolution zooms in any area of the image. The overall view of the scene is always maintained, be it live or in recording.

Panomera® can display distant objects with the same resolution as objects in the foreground and the minimum resolution density according to DIN 62676-4 can be precisely planned in each area. This ensures a minimum data quality across the entire surface (or section), a pre-requisite for accurate analysis results and court usability.

All about Panomera®


The key benefit for Genetec Security users in airport environments is a significantly lower number of required cameras and screens, significantly reducing overall operations cost and complexity.

Latest analytic chip technology in the camera supports many additional functions such as reduction of false alarms or data capture in various application such as people counting or general object classification.

Perimeter Protection

The patented Panomera® multifocal sensor system safeguards large open areas such as perimeters with a defined image quality in each square-inch of the area, a prerequisite for court-proof evidence and sufficient image quality for analytics.

Due to the Multifocal-Sensor technology, security officers need significantly less cameras, and multiple operators have access to high resolution zoom images simultaneously, eliminating the need for PTZ-cameras.

The exactly plannable minimum resolution density ensures highest data quality for analytic applications such as false alarm reduction via AI-based object classification.

Safe City

Technical development in the Safe City area is currently undergoing a period of enormous change: Conventional video security technology is evolving inexorably into an all-round tool.

With Panomera®-based solutions from Dallmeier, urban authorities have the capability to safeguard even very large public areas with significantly lower infrastructure and operating costs than was previously possible in public area solutions.

Features and benefits

  • Significantly fewer cameras and less complexit
  • Reduced workload for Security Center operators
  • Much larger coverage areas – same number of screens
  • Improved attainment of security objectives
  • Precisely definable resolution over the entire area
  • "S" systems for long distances or large areas / expanses
  • "W" systems for 180° or 360° panoramic views

Genetec Security Center™ and Panomera®

System Integration into Genetec Security Center 

Panomera® cameras can be integrated and used in Genetec Security Center via ONVIF protocal.

Using the "Visual Tracking" functionality, operators create an overview, stitched together from the up to 8 detail modules.

That way, operators can create high resolution zooms within any area of the overall image, live and in the recording.

Genetec part number

The most relevant Dallmeier solution for Genetec™ customers is the patented multifocal sensor system Panomera®. Panomera® integrates up to 8 sensors in one camera system. Due to innvoative, patented stitching technology, areas or distances can be covered with an exactly defined resolution density in any spot of the area, significatnly reducing the number of screens and eliminating the need for PTZ.

The user benefits from a much better control of any large spatial context with significantly less camera systems while better achieving security and surveillance goals. Due to the much smaller number of systems required, customers significantly reduce infrastructure and operational cost.

Dallmeier has been in the video technology market for more than 35 years and is the only manufacturer that develops and manufactures all components in Germany. This includes the entire product range, from cameras to recording to specific software solutions.
