To view and dewarp video images in Security Desk that were captured using a Euklis fish-eye camera lens, you must configure the lens in Config Tool.

Before you begin

If necessary select a fish-eye view on the unit's web page. In most cases the default fish-eye view should be adequate. For details about the fish-eye views available for your unit, see your Euklis documentation.

What you should know

Using the dewarping feature, you can 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.
