Whitepaper: Normal service resumed? How video technology supports our new reality

Oncam pioneers 360-degree dewarping and visualisation tools to aid system design

Oncam has launched a 360-degree dewarping preview tool and a visualisation tool so users can test out the surveillance brand’s signature innovations through its website.

Anyone looking to procure 360-degree surveillance cameras can test out Oncam’s dewarping capability through all browsers. The tool  simulates a traditional video stream unfolding in real time.

Operators can use their mouse scroll wheel or trackpad to zoom in or out on, rotate or convert any area of the fisheye image.

The online visualization tool, meanwhile, generate views from both the Evolution 05 and 12 cameras based on various heights and object distances. Users can also dewarp the image: ie reverse the effects of geometric distortions caused by the camera lens.

The tool was designed as an alternative to the traditional pixel density calculators commonly used in CCTV system design, because the latter could not adequately showcase the dewarping function. Oncam says they are the first tools of their kind in the security industry.

Design agencies Storm12 and 41,29 helped Oncam develop the tools, which allow CCTV buyers to road test the solutions before committing to seeing the product in person.

“Oncam is excited to release these tools to the public, allowing integrators, consultants and end users the ability to view our video technology as today’s security leaders are able to – in real-time and with exceptional functionality and picture quality,” said Richard Morgans, chief marketing officer at Oncam.

“The tools integrated together show Oncam’s adaptability in the security market and willingness to go beyond what is expected to showcase its components and capabilities.”

Founded in 2007, Oncam is part of Oncam Technologies Group and a pioneer in 360-degree video technologies.

Check out the tools yourself on the Oncam website.
