The Vivotek FE8172 Fisheye Fixed Dome Network Camera features a detailed 5 MP resolution sensor with superb image quality. Equipped with a fisheye lens for 180° panoramic view (wall mount) or 360° surround view (ceiling / floor / table mount) without blind spots, the camera is able to provide coverage of wide, open areas, such as airports, shopping malls, parking lots, retail stores, offices, and more.

The camera offers various display layouts, including original surround, panoramic, and regional view for various mounting applications. With cutting-edge image processing capabilities, hemispherical images captured from the fisheye camera can be converted into conventional rectilinear projection for viewing and analysis. In addition, in both the panoramic as well as regional viewing modes, users can utilize the ultra-smooth ePTZ function to easily zoom in and focus on a Region of Interest (ROI). The new pixel calculator function helps the user ensure the image quality of a desired area.

As with all Vivotek true day / night cameras, this camera features a removable IR-cut filter, maintaining clear images 24 hours a day.

The camera delivers day & night functionality with a built-in removable IR-cut filter. By day, the IR-cut filter screens out infrared light to reduce color distortion. At night, the filter is removed to accept infrared light for higher lighting efficiency.

180° Panoramic View
The camera provides an overview of the region from wall to wall
360° Surround View
When mounted on the ceiling, the camera can monitor all 4 corners of a room. Any moving object in the room will be captured at all times. The viewer would be able to keep a track of suspicious objects without missing critical information
The camera provides electronic pan / tilt / zoom functions, allowing users to move to a target region in the viewing window without a mechanical movement. In a panoramic view and a regional view, users can utilize the ultra-smooth ePTZ function to easily focus on a region of interest (ROI) using the mouse wheel. Compared to the conventional mechanical PTZ, the ePTZ feature offers zero-wait operation through client-side control. In addition, with a high-end dewarping algorithm (plug-in), the ePTZ on the camera responds swiftly and seamlessly to user's control
Flexible Display Mode
The overview image captured by the camera can be tailored in various ways according to specific applications. It offers multiple types of display layouts in the web browser interface, including 1O, 1O3R, 1O8R, 1P, 2P, 1P2R, 1P3R, 1R, 4R, and 4R PRO
Pixel Calculator
The pixel calculator helps the installer to easily ensure that the camera installation fulfills the pixel resolution required in an application. By using the tool to draw up to 3 windows on the video screen around the areas of interest, the installer can properly place and adjust the camera view to capture the detail required
