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

Before you begin

If you are using a Vivotek FE8171V unit, then manually enable watermarking on the unit.

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.

Procedure

  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 Vivotek is selected.
  4. Click Edit ().
  5. In the Configure lens dialog box, do the following:
    1. Select the Camera position.
    2. To set the center position of the fish-eye, drag the left mouse button.
    3. To adjust the radius of the fish-eye, drag the right mouse button.
      NOTE: The blue region represents the area that can be dewarped in a Security Desk tile.
  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.
