New outdoor dome camera bubble-less

Siqura, a Dutch company that makes video surveillance systems, has developed a bubble-less outdoor PTZ dome camera with 40x zoom. The PD910 combines next-generation camera technology with weather-proofing that alleviates the need for a bubble, according to the company.

Traditionally, dome cameras were fitted with a transparent bubble to shield the camera inside from rain and other weather conditions. The bubble, however, also introduced specific negative side-effects.

“One aspect of using a bubble is the presence of raindrops on it, which, of course, negatively affects performance,” said Peter de Konink, product manager at Siqura. “Another problem is what we call ‘shimmering’ in the bubble, caused by the sunlight. This produces spots in the image displayed. Third, looking directly at the horizon with a bubble dome camera results in optical distortion.”

According to the company, the PD910 camera is fitted, as standard, with IR illumination for extra resolution and night vision in combination with the latest 3 Megapixel ultra-low-light sensor. It’s also more compact and lightweight than previous models. For more information, visit siqura.com/product/pd910/.
