VIVOTEK FE8191/FE8191-V is a 360 degree panoramic/fisheye view IP camera utilizes 12 megapixel CMOS image sensor to deliver 9 megapixel (2944x2944) crystal images at 12fps. It's the latest fisheye network camera supports 180° (horizontal), 180° (vertical), 180° (diagonal) surround view, 3D digital noise reduction and pixel calculator, as well as ePTZ function. Furthermore, it has built-in IR LEDs, IR range distance up to 10 meters. FE8191 camera is able to provide coverage of wide, open areas, such as airports, shopping malls, parking lots, retail stores, offices and more. This new ultra-megapixel camera can satisfy consumers'demand for products with diversified applications. It can help Vivotek to compete with Hikvision in smart network video surveillance market.
Similar to other panoramic view network cameras, the Vovotek FE8191 has built-in removable IR-CUT filter to offer day & night monitoring function, it adopts high-performance codec SoC to provide real-time H.264 and MJPEG video compression, it supports true wide dynamic range (WDR) to enhance the visibility in extremely bright and dark environment. The WDR function allows the camera to maintain optimal image quality around the clock, and 3D noise reduction technology enables the camera to capture clear, polished video under low-light conditions.
Fisheye and panoramic cameras utilize fisheye lens to provide a much wider field of view than fixed cameras, up to 360 degrees. This can allow user to setup a camera surveillance system with less camera installed. Unlike fixed cameras that narrow in on a specific spot or area such as a room, hallway, office cubicle, and entrances and exits, fisheye and panoramic cameras can cover a much higher wider area. Although panoramic view network cameras are much expensive than traditional network cameras, they are still the ideal choice for your interior video surveillance monitoring applications. Depending on your security needs, a fisheye or panoramic camera may be what you’re looking for, as both can provide surveillance for broad areas like stores, warehouses, parking lots, stadiums, museums, concert halls, and ports.
