Vicon Industries a designer and manufacturer of video surveillance and access control software, hardware, and components, introduces a new line of 6MP and 12MP panoramic cameras with fisheye lens. The camera’s extremely wide angle and highly detailed image allow it to provide coverage of an area that would typically require as many as four traditional HD security cameras, while eliminating blind spots. Server-side image dewarping, as well as edge-based dewarping at lower resolutions, enable the camera’s video to be displayed in a variety of formats, including panoramic and quad-view, that remove the visual “fisheye” distortion.
Featuring Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), true day/night functionality and smart IR illuminator LEDs, the cameras deliver crisp images in any lighting conditions. Indoor and outdoor models make them suitable for installation anywhere. All models have a IK10 vandal rating and the outdoor version features weatherproof IP66 rated housing that can withstand temperatures as low as -22oF/-30oC. Installation is made easy and cost-effective with PoE, eliminating the need for power cables; 12 VDC is also accepted.
The cameras are ONVIF Profile S and G compliant. Features include smart text overlay and privacy masking, tampering alarm, network failure notification and motion detection. The cameras also feature built-in microphone and speaker, along with audio detection. Multiple regions of interest can be identified within the area of coverage for display within separate viewing windows.
