VIVOTEK FE8171V award-winning 3.1MP 360° surround view vandal-proof fisheye fixed dome

Product Profile

VIVOTEK FE8171V is the first fisheye fixed dome network camera from VIVOTEK, featuring detailed 3.1MP-resolution sensor with superb image quality. Equipped with a fisheye lens for 180° panoramic view (wall mount) or 360° surround view (ceiling/floor/table mount) without blind spots, this camera is able to provide an 8X wider field of view than a standard VGA camera, significantly reducing the need for multiple camera installations. It is extremely suitable for monitoring open areas such as airports, shopping malls, parking lots, retail stores, offices, and much more.  

The FE8171V offers various display layouts, including original surround view, panoramic views, and regional views for various mounting applications. With the latest cutting-edge image processing, hemispherical images captured from the fisheye camera can be converted into conventional rectilinear projection for viewing and analysis. In addition, in the panoramic and regional viewing modes, users can utilize the ultra-smooth ePTZ function to easily zoom in and focus on a region of interest (ROI).  

As with all VIVOTEK true day/night cameras, the FE8171V features a removable IR-cut filter, maintaining clear images 24 hours a day. Its IP66-rated housing is designed to help the camera body withstand rain and dust and ensures operation under a multitude of harsh weather conditions. Additionally, the vandal-proof IK10-rated housing effectively provides robust protection from vandalism. Together with 802.3af compliant PoE, microSD/SDHC/SDXC card slot for on-board storage, EN50155 mobile surveillance, and iPad applications, the FE8171V is indisputably the top choice for constructing a robust surveillance system with the greatest coverage possible.
