The IBAK PANORAMO boasts unique scanner technology for highlyefficient sewer pipe inspections.

On the one hand, pipe inspections can be carried out at a substantially higher speed than with conventional systems. On the other hand, the user receives a processed illustration in addition to the 3D film containing a seamless recording of the entire pipe inspection.
Priceless advantage: irrespective of the actual sewer inspection, it is possible to evaluate the condition in the office at any time – just as if the inspector was live on-site. The viewer can move freely in the sewer pipe without any viewing restrictions, stop at any position, pan round 360°, zoom, look into inlets and even look backwards – all this without affecting the recorded imaging material in any way. All objects, such as displaced joints, protruding pipe connections etc. can be viewed in detail from all sides.
In addition to the possibility of inspecting sewer pipes using the scanner technology, the PANORAMO digital cameras (see right: "The PANORAMO principle") allow the operator to set the video mode for the image display during the inspection run when passing significant sections. In this way moving elements such as running water can be shown, as with conventional sewer cameras.

The PANORAMO principle
The IBAK PANORAMO, unlike conventional sewer TV systems, uses two high-resolution digital photo cameras with 185° fisheye lenses, which each take images at distances of 5 cm. Due to the extremely wide angle an all-round view of a pipe section is therefore captured every 5 cm. These pipe section sequences are transwithted digitally to the inspection vehicle, where they are put together using PANORAMO software to create a true 3D interior view of the complete sewer pipe, both in and against the direction of travel. In contrast to video technology, in which the continuous light ewithted from a moving vehicle results in a large amount of motion blur in recordings, the IBAK PANORAMO pins sharp images: the stroboscopic light given off by the device’s integrated Xenon flash system lights up the pipe so brightly that, despite the very high speed of inspection of up to 35 cm per second, the system can guarantee very highquality images, showing details in pin-sharp quality.

The IBAK PANORAMO 150 is a steerable camera system for operational distances for DN 150 pipes and up.

As with the well-established PANORAMO (for DN 200 pipes and up) and the manhole camera PANORAMO SI, it boasts tried and tested 3D scanner technology – the user receives a 3D film containing the complete recordings of the entire pipe inspection as well as a processed illustration. Priceless advantage: irrespective of the actual sewer inspection, it is possible to evaluate the condition in the office at any time – just as if the inspector was live on-site. The viewer can move freely in the sewer pipe without any viewing restrictions, stop at any position, pan round 360°, zoom, look into inlets and even look backwards – all this without affecting the recorded imaging material in any way. All objects such as displaced joints, protruding pipe connections etc. can be viewed in detail from all sides.

The PANORAMO 150 is ideally suited for the inspection of DN 200 pipes repaired with inliners. A range of rims and wheels are naturally available for the PANORAMO 150 as well as profiled and granulated wheels for the the various nominal diameters. With its mechanical positioning unit, the PANORAMO 150 also masters bigger nominal diameters, making it a flexible and versatile device that completes the PANORAMO family.

With the IBAK-PANORAMO SI, the user has the distinctive advantages of PANORAMO technology also at their disposal for manhole inspection.

The 3D scanner uses two high-resolution digital cameras with specially designed distortion-free wide-angle lenses, which optically scan the entire interior of the manhole in a few seconds in one single vertical run.

The digitally transwithted image data is immediately at the operator‘s disposal as a live picture. The condition of the manhole is then evaluated either in the office or directly on site.

Unlike a video from a conventional pan and tilt camera, which only shows the section of view saved at the time of recording, the IBAK PANORAMO SI viewer software provides a seamless inspection of the manhole. The inspector can stop at any position in the manhole, pan 360°, zoom and save snapshots.

An unfolded view of the manhole can be generated at the same time. This gives a rapid overview of the of the structure's condition and enables the user to measure objects on the manhole walls.

For further assessment of the data IBAK's IKAS sewer analysis software, the PANORAMO SI option manhole inspection, is available. With this software PANORAMO SI films are analysed easily and efficiently.

The results are inspection reports and inspection data to suit all commonly used data interfaces. The licence-free IBAK viewer software provides the customer with a complete overview.

The IBAK PANORAMO SI manhole inspection camera can be operated as an extension to IBAK PANORAMO inspection systems with a BS 5/BS 7 control unit, or as an installation kit for a vehicle (e.g. VW T5)

Camera Range




The IBAK ORPHEUS 2 HD is a high resolution pan and rotate camera for the full HD sewer inspection system. IBAK is the pioneer of this technology on the market and provides a system with which videos can be created, transmitted, displayed, processed and archived in full HD quality.

The ORPHEUS 2 HD camera is equipped with an image sensor in full HD format (1920 x 1080 = 2.08 million pixels) which has approximately 5 times as many pixels as a conventional PAL sensor.

The picture transmission is entirely digital, from the generation of the image in the camera head through to display and storage in the control unit. Thus, the camera image produced is of unrivalled quality in terms of resolution and colour fidelity. The full HD resolution of the ORPHEUS 2 HD is transmitted via optical fibre and highly efficiently compressed using the H.264 standard.

With its vertical image resolution of 1080 pixels, the ORPHEUS 2 HD fulfils the requirements of the DWA advisory leaflet M149-5 for the inspection of large diameter pipes (e.g. the required vertical resolution of at least 1000 pixels for DN 1000 pipes).

Besides high resolution digital image generation, the ORPHEUS 2 HD has all the important functions of a conventional pan and rotate camera such as a 10x optical zoom, automatic image routines and easy-to-handle diameter, deformation and defects measurement during inspections in the sewer.

All data are displayed and processed in the IKAS evolution software.
