SECURITY
also provide increased coverage versus
a single camera.
Multi-sensor cameras borrow from
the consumer market, where dual and
multi-camera cell phones are becoming
a standard affair. Security cameras with
more than one sensor provide a new
way to meet airport security challenges
through increased field of view, higher
detail and additional view range. This
increased security is now achieved
using the same infrastructure and
similar equipment footprint - often at
a premium in the airport environment.

Panoramic Camera
Provides Easier Tracking
The panoramic camera, offered by
most security manufacturers, initially
required special viewing software to
stitch a scene together from its sensors.
That's changed. Now, many cameras
now do this at the camera and provide
a single stream output. The advantage
of the panoramic camera is to provide a

wide and continuous field of view. This
allows security to more easily track a
target in lieu of overlapping traditional
cameras. And, some unique alternatives
to this may also include a pan, tilt, zoom
(PTZ) integrated in the same housing
to allow interrogation of a scene from
the same view angle as an original fixed
panoramic scene.

High Depth of Field
(DOF) for Large Spaces
Using sensors on a large, but more
traditional field of view camera is also
an option. While these cameras require
more intense processing at the camera
to present a continuous scene, they offer
some interesting advantages related to
varying the three basic camera elements
of lens, iris and focus to parts of the scene.
It's still unclear if these security-specific
cameras will see widespread industry
growth or adoption.
The high DOF camera is ideal for
large spaces and movement over large

areas. A technical limitation is that the
focus distance steps up over distance as
the lens package overlaps. However, the
overall focus should still be appreciably
better than a standard single highresolution sensor.
The downside to high DOF cameras
is that their limited application may
make the technology unsustainable
for long-term adoption in the industry.
For example, the Lytro L16 garnered
signif icant attention when it was
announced as a multisensory camera for
the consumer market, but the hype was
too far ahead of the software and the
company's product development seems
to have waned.

Image Processing Poised
for Growth
A quickly emerging area that stems
from the consumer side but has yet to
gain significant traction in the security
market is related to software and image
processing. The largest growth in this
