Grundig's Ultra HD, 6MP Fisheye with ImmerVision, panomorph 360° viewing.

02 June 2015

Grundig Security is pleased to announce the inclusion of panomorph technology, from ImmerVision, in its Ultra HD, Fisheye day/night camera. The high performance, panoramic camera provides a 6MP, 360° view, making it ideal for overview applications in retail, garage forecourt, public space, residential and reception areas.

Grundig’s panomorph camera offers exceptional image quality, using a 6 megapixel CMOS sensor with 360° and 180° viewing options at up to 25 fps. The camera uses ‘ImmerVision Enables’ built-in de-warping software, the new 360° video standard, which corrects panomorph lens image distortion. The panomorph camera lens design allocates more pixels to critical areas of its view than a standard fisheye camera, such as those containing people or vehicles. It operates equally well in demanding lighting conditions, due to its 0.2 / 0.02Lux sensitivity and integrated IR LED illuminators. Further image enhancement technologies include digital wide dynamic range (WDR), digital noise reduction (DNR) and back light compensation (BLC).

The 360° view images eliminate blind spots, capturing all site incidents, in a cost-effective, single camera solution. Fewer cameras are needed to provide full coverage of an area, reducing equipment and installation costs. Privacy zone settings for restricted areas are also included.

The ImmerVision de-warped video streams can be used with NVRs and most leading video management software platforms. The camera can be set up to provide operators with 1, 2 or 4 video streams or the 360° or 180° panoramic view.

A built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot allows alarm and scheduled recording to take place in the camera and bi-directional audio offers additional incident intervention capabilities. Electronic pan, tilt and zoom functionality, in live or record modes, provides simultaneous detailed and overview images.

The Grundig panomorph camera is available in the UK through the Security Buying Group.
