Pelco released a line of megapixel IP PTZs called 'Spectra HD.' This marks Pelco's first offering to an already limited pool of megapixel IP PTZ cameras on the market.
The S5118 will include the following key features:
- 1.3 MP resolution (1280x960) at 20 fps
- 1/3" CCD sensor
- 18x optical (4.7 - 84.6mm)
- 360° continuous pan
- H.264 codec
- Dual streaming
- Mechanical IR cut filter
A notable feature is its 18x optical zoom. The current market has a limited number of IP PTZs supporting this level of zoom capability. The P5534 and the Q6034 from Axis are the only other models supporting 18x optical zooms.
Performing a search for MP day/night PTZs in our camera finder tool, returns a selection of 7 camera models manufactured by Axis, Sanyo, and Sony. The average MSRP in this selection is $3,413 USD.
The S5118 began shipping commerially October 4, 2010, with a MSRP $4,925 USD. Although the MSRP appears high (based on camera finder tool results), Pelco's camera pricing generally exhibits a wider reseller discount structure.
