To view and dewarp video images in Security Desk that were captured using an ACTi fisheye camera lens, you must configure the lens in Config Tool.

Before you begin

To use dewarping capabilities with ACTi units, you must add the unit in Config Tool using the Fisheye product type.

What you should know

Dewarping allows you to zoom in on a 360 degree image, similar to the digital zoom feature in Security Desk. The zoomed image is dewarped, or flattened to show a rectangular image.


  1. From the Video task in Config Tool, select the camera to configure.
  2. Click the Hardware tab.
  3. From the Lens type drop-down list, make sure ACTi is selected.
  4. Click Edit ().
  5. In the Configure lens dialog box, select the Camera position
  6. Click OK > Apply.

After you finish

For your changes to take effect, remove the camera from all Security Desk tiles, and then re-add the camera.
