Oncam, the provider of 360-degree video capture and business intelligence technology, has announced two new functionalities on its website in an effort to enhance the user experience and drive interaction. The web-based 360-degree dewarping preview and the online visualisation tool demonstrate continued focus on innovation.
The 360-degree dewarping capability is available through all browsers and enables visitors to use their mouse scroll wheel or trackpad to zoom in/out on, rotate or convert any area of the fisheye image. This makes it appear and feel as though you are looking at a traditional video stream, which allows security operators to view a scene in real-time as events are unfolding.
The online visualisation tool was designed as an alternative to a traditional pixel density calculator. These calculators are used to estimate pixel resolution in system design, but due to the particular image produced by Oncam’s cameras combined with the dewarping, a standard pixel density calculator wouldn’t clearly illustrate the solution. Therefore, the visualisation tool can generate views from the Evolution cameras based on different heights and object distances. Users not only see a representation of the image quality they can expect, but they can also dewarp the image produced and see how that functionality benefits the solution.
‘Oncam is excited to release these tools to the public, allowing integrators, consultants and end users the ability to view our video technology as today’s security leaders are able to: in real-time and with exceptional functionality and picture quality,’ statedd Richard Morgans, Chief Marketing Officer at Oncam. ‘The tools integrated together show Oncam’s adaptability in the security market and willingness to go beyond what is expected to showcase its components and capabilities.’
