1,000 MegaPixel Camera to Replace Current Surveillance Cameras

megapixAdaptive Imaging Technologies, an Israeli start-up company, has recently revealed its newest and most powerful surveillance camera. Unlike traditional cameras that are used for surveillance purposes, and even for professional photography, most typical cameras have a resolution that is around 1-15 megapixels. However, this new camera, also known as the “panoramic telescope” has a resolution of 1,000 megapixels or 1 GigaPixel.

Mouli Cohen, an entrepreneur and technology enthusiast notes that, “Although one GigaPixel would be overkill for conventional uses, a security system would be able to use it to zoom in and produce clear images of fine details like a small object in a man’s hand, or distinguishing marks on his clothing.”

This would be overkill for a traditional surveillance system that uses several cameras to watch over an area, but in this case, just one of these cameras can replace an entire surveillance system. The way that it will work is that the camera is able to see a panoramic (360°) view and it can zoom in on multiple points at once, such as a security checkpoint, all the emergency exits and the check in counter. An operator can even choose to set the camera to only look at faces.

“Because of this feature,” Cohen says, “One single camera can take the place of a multi-camera security system at a transportation hub or national border.

With technology improving and getting cheaper as time goes by, these types of cameras will most likely one day replace conventional security systems.
