The fisheye camera delivers high-quality video streams, allowing objects in the vicinity to be viewed in details and under no blind spots. Given the high resolution, the camera is also capable to dewarp the fisheye image into different viewing composition in high quality.

The H.265 video compression technology aims to reduce the network traffic and storage requirement by 50 per cent in comparison to H.264. By optimising the network bandwidth while maintaining the video details of up to 12MP resolution, the overall storage costs can be greatly minimised.

The camera comes with a processing unit that allows built-in dewarping functions without the need of additional servers or software, said the company.

“Users can also select different viewing modes depending on their surveillance or recording requirements, including the original fisheye view, 360-degree panoramic view, 180-degree double panoramic view and dewarped views with pan/tilt/zoom functionality. The fisheye camera can also be installed on the ceiling or on the wall, providing great flexibility for the users,” noted WAMA.
