To view and dewarp video images in Security Desk that were captured using an Samsung 360 degree fish-eye camera lens, you must configure the lens in Config Tool.
Dewarping allows you to zoom in on a 360° image, similar to the digital zoom feature in Security Desk. The zoomed image is dewarped, or flattened to show a rectangular image.
