Fisheye Camera Support

Fisheye Camera Support

One of the problems with traditional surveillance cameras is blind spot. The traditional and inefficient answer to this problem is setting up multiple cameras from different point of views. Fisheye camera features 360° surveillance coverage, so your property is more efficiently and cost-effectively safeguarded.

  • Obtain a 360° panorama view of the environment.
  • Dewarp a specific region or a hemispheric area (180°) from the fisheye image.
  • Multiple live view channels can be extracted from dewarped images.
  • Support ceiling mount camera only.

Suitable for Large-Scale Deployment

Even for large-scale environment with hundreds of cameras, everything is unified and readily available. IT administrators can consolidate live view feeds from different recording servers in the CMS host. This offers efficient management, flexible deployment, and proactive control.

  1. For detailed information please refer to software specifications or release note.
  2. On-screen operation support depends on each IP camera’s specifications.

Surveillance security deals with matters that are measured in seconds. You need a reliable method to keep track of the events as they are happening. Live View Analytics offers real-time event tracking with 6 different live view analytic options for your selection:

  • Motion Detection
    System detects if there’s any movement in a pre-determined area.
  • Missing Object
    Any object that’s removed or missing from a pre-defined area triggers the alarm.
  • Foreign Object
    Any object that enters and remains in a pre-defined area is taken as a foreign object.
  • Camera Occlusion
    When an IP cam’s lens is blocked by unknown objects, the system will trigger an alert.
  • Focus Lost
    When an IP cam’s focus is adjusted or lost focus, the system will trigger an alert.
  • No-Idle Zone
    Any object that stays in the no-idle zone for over a set period of time will trigger an immediate alert.

Review Events Within 1 Hour

There are times when you are busy taking care of one event, another event struck without being noticed. Surveillance Station keeps events that happened within one hour. So you can check if there’s anything that slipped past you.

Review Events Within 1 Hour


Sometimes a simple image is more powerful than an entire video. You can easily capture snapshots of camera feeds and then quickly edit each snapshot before saving it to your Synology NAS or downloading it to a local computer. Simple editing features include rotate, blur, and mask, allowing you to remove any sensitive information, such as bystanders' faces or vehicle license plates.
