ACTi introduces a new 4-Megapixel hemispheric camera KCM-3911 with the 360-degree ceiling mount view and 180-degree wall mount view.
Applications such as retail stores, warehouses, gas stations, train stations, lobbies, banks, etc, represent rather complex environments - they may have bright windows on one side and darker corners on the other side. There may be different lighting conditions for day and night time. How can one camera that looks in all directions at the same time handle it all? With the newest Superior Dynamic Range technology and 2D+3D Digital Noise Reduction, the camera is able to maintain clear 360-degree video 24 hours a day regardless of lighting conditions!
What if there are regions in the view of the camera that are more sensitive and require different permission levels to watch? No problem! You can switch the camera into 6-Region mode instead and have each of the regions streamed individually to VMS where different management and permission rules can be applied for each stream.
Can KCM-3911 also act like a PTZ camera? Yes! With the special ePTZ mode it is possible to navigate within the panoramic view just like Speed Dome! The motion triggered ePTZ preset points work with the ultimate speed of 0 seconds because there are no mechanical parts involved! This way you will always be on time to capture the intruder's face before he runs away.
Thanks to the powerful ISP designed by ACTi, the spherical raw image is converted into a flat and rectangle-shaped image right within the camera together with restoring the normal proportions of the objects in the field of view. This way, there is no need for extra processing on remote software side, making KCM-3911 easy to be integrated with any VMS in the world.
ACTi own software NVR (free up to 16 channels) and Standalone NVR will be ready to support all the special functions of KCM-3911, such as panorama mode, ePTZ mode and 6-Region mode with any resolution!

- 360-degree view with Ceiling mount
- Panorama, ePTZ and 6-Region view modes available
- Resolution up to 4-Megapixel including 1080p Full HD and 720p HD standard formats
- Always clear video with Superior Dynamic range and 2D+3D DNR
- Advanced event management system with motion detection, DI/DO and local storage.
