In the past few years, megapixel resolution has become the mainstream specification for IP surveillance cameras. While these cameras deliver more details and better coverage than ever before, the dramatic increase in video data places greater demands on network bandwidth, recording storage, and CPU loading. Moreover, video streaming performance may be degraded due to the varying capabilities of individual clients and the bandwidth available to them.
Vivotek's FE8171V is the first fisheye fixed dome network camera from Vivotek, featuring a detailed 3-Megapixel resolution 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, this camera is able to provide an 8X wider field of view than a standard VGA camera, significantly reducing the need for multiple camera installations.
