Cathexis has included spherical and rectangular transformation algorithms in its latest CatVision software. This enables the system to receive 180 degree and 360 degree video feeds from fisheye cameras and then transform them into normal views from within the CatVision software.
The predominant differentiating factor is that the CatVision software can provide multiple transformed views from a single video feed. This is contrary to many available VMS systems where the transformation has to be performed by the camera itself demanding that the system receives multiple video streams. Another advantage of this feature is that the CatVision archive player can also perform the transformations, so only the source video need be recorded, rather than multiple streams.
In the image, you can see the original source feed and transformed views of the same video feed rendered from the CatVision software. The feature is available as standard in all of the CatVision software packages.
