Vivotek has announced the launch of the world’s smallest 5 MP fisheye network camera, the FE8180. The FE8180’s extremely low profile, with a diameter of only 90 mm, further bolsters Vivotek’s fisheye network camera products portfolio and satisfies diverse market needs. The launch of the FE8180 signals the dawn of a new era of simple but powerful panoramic surveillance.
Steve Ma, executive VP at Vivotek, stated, “The most unique part of a fisheye camera is the wide angle view, which enables surveillance covering the entirety of a wide open space. From an economical perspective, users are able to capture a panoramic image that would usually require two or three cameras, saving on the total cost of implementation and simplifying the entire surveillance system.”
Featuring a 5-megapixel resolution sensor, the FE8180 is able to deliver clear and detailed images. When combined with WDR Enhancement and 3D Noise Reduction features, unparalleled visibility and image quality can be guaranteed around the clock while simultaneously improving on bandwidth efficiency. Designed with a 1,57 mm fisheye lens for 180° panoramic view (wall-mount) or 360° surround view (ceiling/floor/table-mount) with zero blind spots, the camera is able to provide coverage of wide, open areas, such as airports, shopping malls, parking lots, retail stores, offices and more.
Add to this local or client side dewarp functionality and hemispherical images captured from the FE8180 can be converted into conventional rectilinear projection for viewing and analysis. Further, by using the ultra-smooth ePTZ and cutting-edge Pixel Calculator functions, users can easily zoom in and focus on a region of interest (ROI) and be confident that the image will remain clear and of the highest quality. In order to make the installation and surveillance even more flexible, a flat back-panel mounting bracket for the FE8180 is also available. This bracket allows the FE8180 to be mounted on walls or a ceiling with a 15° tilt-mount bracket.
