Vivotek recently released its new FE8172 V, a fisheye fixed dome network camera that features a detailed 5MP sensor with superb image quality. In addition to that, this camera is equipped with a fisheye lens that offers a full 180 degree panoramic view if wall mounted or a full 360 degree panoramic view if mounted on the ceiling without blind spots, which provides a 12x wider field of view than a standard VGA camera.
The FE8172 is suitable for open area monitoring in places like airports, shopping malls, parking lots, retail stores, offices and even homes and driveways. This camera also offers a plethora of different display layouts, including original surround view, panoramic view and regional view, which allows you to mount your camera in a variety of different locations.
This camera also supports the latest cutting-edge image processing capability, which allows you to convert hemispherical images captured from the camera into conventional rectilinear projection for viewing and analysis. What’s more is that in both the panoramic and regional viewing modes users can take advantage of the ultra-smooth ePTZ function to quickly zoom in and focus on a specific region of interest.
Like all of Vivotek’s day/night cameras, this one features a removable IR-cut filter, maintaining clear images 24/7. The IP66-rated housing is also designed to withstand rain and dust and is capable of operating in a variety of harsh weather environments.The IK10-rated vandal-proof housing also provides adequate protection from tampering.
That, added to 802.3af compliant PoE, microSD/SDHC/SDXC card slot for on-board storage and EN50155 mobile surveillance and iPad applications, makes the FE8172V a perfect addition to any robust surveillance system that is looking for great coverage and a wide field of view.
