VIVOTEK is pleased to announce the launch of its two market leading and innovative network cameras: FE8181 and FE8181V. In addition to 5-Megapixel and fisheye fixed dome features, the cameras are furnished with a removable IR-cut filter for Day & Night functionality, and a built-in 10 meter IR Illuminator for uniform lighting across a 360° surround view, making them standouts in the fisheye camera market. With the IR features superior image quality is guaranteed throughout the entire day.
FE8181 and FE8181V are designed with a 5-Megapixel CMOS sensor, enabling viewing resolution of 1920x1920 at a smooth 15 fps. Equipped with a 1.5 mm fisheye lens for 180° panoramic (wall mount) or 360° surround viewing (ceiling/floor/table mount), FE8181 and FE8181V are able to provide coverage of wide, open areas such as airports, shopping malls, parking lots, retail stores, offices and more, without blind spots. Featuring 3D Noise Reduction Technology, the cameras are able to capture clear, polished video under low-light conditions, which also helps to reduce bandwidth from sensor noise. Most uniquely, FE8181 and FE8181V, with built-in IR LEDs and patent protected light cup design, provide uniform 360° surround illumination for clear viewing up to distances of 10 meters, even in completely dark environments.
In addition, both cameras are especially designed with VIVOTEK’s Application Development Platform, a self-developed open platform for the deployment of intelligent applications. Video analytic functionality like object tracking, heat mapping, and people counting can be directly integrated within the camera, realising intelligent surveillance and greatly contributing to business efficiency.
FE8181V, is especially designed with vandal-proof IK10-rated and weather-proof IP66-rated Housing, enabling the camera to withstand the elements as well as human-inflicted attacks. Moreover, with full EN50155 compliance, the camera can withstand shock and vibration, maintaining a stable and reliable video feed on a moving vehicle or turbulent machine.
Steve Ma, VIVOTEK's Executive VP, stated, "There are few fisheyes on the market that have good IR LEDs built in. It was through our R&D resources, extensive experience in fisheye technology, and ultimately an innovative spirit that we came to successfully develop the 5-Megapixel IR fisheye network cameras FE8181 and FE8181V. True to our commitment, with these cameras we are providing the market with an outstanding surveillance solution.”
