ID Network Dome Series Examined

Author: John Honovich, Published on Sep 11, 2009

Pelco's new network camera dome series is the Sarix ID (see datasheet of the 1.3 MP option). The series offers a number of options for resolution, lenses and analytics.

Resolution options include SVGA, 1.3MP and 2.1MP. Each camera uses CS mount lenses with 4 options ranging from 2.6-6mm up to 15-50mm.

The cameras have a variety of options for analytics including Pelco's own analytics and ObjectVideo's.

All housing are indoors including options for surface mount and in-ceiling (demonstrated in the video below). Physically, the dome is fairly large. For instance, the height of the surface mount option is 6.32"/16.05cm which is almost twice as high as other options on the market (including the Axis P33).

All cameras support H.264 encoding though the maximum frame rate varies by model. For instance, the ID10 specifies a maximum 8fps at 1.3 MP/H.264. However, the ID20 specifies a maximum 30fps at 2.1 MP/H.264.

Finally, the camera supports an analog out for local focusing and an auto-back focus functionality that performs a final focusing once the image is roughly in focus. View Pelco's video clip below for an overview:
