Vicon Industries Inc., a leading designer and producer of network video management systems, has introduced a new line of Hemispheric Cameras that provide high-resolution, continuous 180o or 360o coverage. An integral fisheye lens and 4 megapixel sensor captures a complete 360o view, which is delivered as two 180o panoramic images visually stacked on top of each other within a single video stream. All de-morphing is performed within the cameras prior to transmission, so a distortion-free image is delivered to the VMS ready for live display and recording. The cameras transmit a choice of H.264, MPEG-4 SP and M-JPEG compressions with dual streaming.

The V9360 models are true day/night cameras that perform extremely well in a wide range of lighting conditions, thanks to advanced WDR and a mechanical IR cut filter. A MicroSD/MicroSDHC card slot allows for local storage. Power-over-Ethernet eliminates the need for power cables.

The cameras may be used with many popular VMS systems. When used with ViconNet, users may digitally zoom into live or recorded video for a closer look at any object within the two panoramic views. Pixilation is minimal due to the 4MP resolution.

“These new panoramic cameras are an exciting addition to our camera line,” explained Margie Gurwin, Director of Marketing. “Whether they are used as an alternative to or in conjunction with our PTZ solutions, their ability to provide continuous 360o coverage will be of great value in many types of installations.”

The V9360s are available in indoor and outdoor models with a range of mounting options.
