360° or 180° panoramic monitoring
The compact, weatherproof 12megapixel hemispheric outdoor IP dome camera offers an uninterrupted 360° field of vision, opening up new potential applications. It is the ideal camera solution for a wide range of environments, both indoors and outdoors. When mounted on the ceiling, the camera gives the option of monitoring an entire room.
The camera is specially designed for outdoor use (within a temperature range of -25° to 60°) and can be used to monitor activity from above. The heat map function enables the analysis of pedestrian flows, e.g. in retail. The integrated IRs have a range of approximately 15metres, and boast clear video images – even at night. Power over Ethernet (PoE) facilitates the installation process and the loudspeaker and the integrated microphone enable two-way audio communication via the camera's web interface using a microphone linked up to a computer.
Flexible views – simple operation
There are several image display options, including 360° image, panorama image, double-panorama image, 360° view with three freely configurable positions, as well as a panorama image with three freely configurable positions. The camera is easy to operate using the online interface: digital panning, tilting and zooming is incredibly easy to control, and the camera patrols are feely configurable.
Dewarping is carried out on the camera itself as opposed to the PC, so the volume of image data is drastically reduced before transmission and storage, thus reducing the load on the network.
In order to be able to use all 4 streams to their full extent, 4 free channels need to be available in an NVR or a software program.
