360° View in the iOS app

Get a complete view of a fisheye or 360° camera while on the go using the 360° View feature with interactive PTZ controls in the OpenEye mobile app (iOS only). The 360° View uses dewarping to provide complete situational awareness, allowing users to use a standard camera view while still recording the complete 180° or 360° area. View, export, and share dewarped or zoomed in video from fisheye cameras from the convenience of your mobile device. 360° View is also available in the OpenEye web and d
Enable Fisheye Support

Enable Fisheye to dewarp 360° fisheye camera lenses so that a user can pan the camera view in multiple directions even if the camera does not have moving mechanical parts.

To enable Fisheye for an individual camera, connect to a recorder, click Setup > Cameras and select the camera you want to configure from the Camera List. Click on the Fisheye tab and check the box to Enable Fisheye Support for the camera.

NOTE: Video over 9MP will automatically be transcoded to a smaller resolution for performance reasons when Enable Fisheye Support is checked.

Mount Type – Change this setting to Wall or Ceiling based on the installation of the camera.

Enable Advanced Configuration – This option allows custom tuning of the center and diameter of dewarping done by the software. Adjusting the X and Y Center values changes the position of the warped image in regards to the position of the image as a whole. The diameter value is used to determine the focal length of the lens when calculating de-warp parameters.

NOTE: Supported cameras typically have optimal settings by default and do not need to be modified with advanced configuration.
