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.
360° View in the mobile app
The camera view will default to fisheye until 360° View is selected.
- In Live, select the fisheye camera from the camera grid display.
- Select the 360° View button near the bottom of the screen to dewarp the fisheye view.
Using Interactive PTZ in 360° View
- Touch the screen with one finger and drag in a direction to move the camera view.
- Pinch with two fingers to zoom in on image.
The 360° View is saved automatically in the app, but not in OWS. If the app is removed from the mobile device and re-installed, the saved view will be lost.
NOTE: 360° View also works with 180° Cameras.
NOTE: Panorama is supported in web, desktop, and console clients, but not in the mobile client.
