CBC America Corp Releases New Dome Series Based on Pixim's Seawolf Chip

New dome cameras by CBC are the ideal solution for mixed lighting conditions.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – March 12, 2012 - Pixim Inc., a leading provider of imaging chips for enterprise security cameras, announced that CBC (America) has launched the new 8000 series dome cameras integrating Pixim’s new Seawolf chip. The cameras are available in indoor and outdoor models with multiple mounting options.

Based on Seawolf, the 8000 series cameras adjust to highlights and lowlights in the same scene, capturing the entire picture even in the most challenging, mixed lighting conditions. Additionally, the high-performance cameras offer 690 HTVL effective resolution and the industry’s proven best wide dynamic range. The new CBC cameras require just 0.1 lux of illumination to produce usable, color images at a full 30 frames per second, and can produce video in light as low as 0.001 lux when slow shutter modes are enabled.

“Seawolf’s ultra wide dynamic range gives our new dome cameras significantly improved exposure performance,” explains Kevin Cook, director of sales for CBC America Corp. “These advantages are noticed immediately in cameras pointing towards bright light common in many commercial and banking projects. Combining our technology with Pixim’s provides customers with superior solutions for mixed lighting applications.”

“It’s exciting to see Seawolf’s capabilities used to its full advantages by a company already well recognized in the security industry for its quality products,” says John Monti, Pixim’s vice president, marketing and business development.
