In a challenging economic climate and with end-users understandably demanding maximum ROI from their investment in video surveillance systems, it might be time for installers to take a closer look at how 360° cameras could give them a competitive edge. Simply put, 360° fisheye lens cameras are able to reduce the cost of video surveillance in many situations as they can be used to monitor very wide or large areas. Cost savings are achieved by significantly reducing the number of cameras needed for video surveillance projects in environments such as airports, hospitals, large office reception areas, retail and public spaces.
Oncam, the leading provider of 360-degree video capture and business intelligence technology, announced it has added two new functionalities to its website in an effort to enhance the user experience and drive interaction. The web-based 360-degree dewarping preview and the online visualization tool demonstrate Oncam’s continued focus on innovation and individuality. The 360-degree dewarping capability is available through all browsers and enables visitors to use their mouse scroll wheel or trackpad to zoom in/out on, rotate or convert any area of the fisheye image. This makes it appear and feel as though you are looking at a traditional video stream, which allows security operators to view a scene in real-time as events are unfolding.
