Network Video Recorder
The Universal Video Management System (UVMS) network video recording system incorporates the functionality of the IPIX CommandView Dome, a solid-state IP dome camera that uses a fisheye lens to stream a 360-degree view of an area. Normal views can be extracted from the fisheye image using image transformation software. Users can pan, tilt, and zoom around the virtual dome view using either a mouse or PTZ camera joystick. UVMS records the entire fisheye scene for later review.
The IK-VR01A vandal-resistant dome camera features a rugged metal housing that withstands heavy impact and tampering, a 1/3in. CCD that delivers 480 TV lines of resolution, a high-quality Varifocal lens, advanced day/night (color cut) imaging for around-the-clock surveillance, lowlight sensitivity to 0.4lux, and 50dB SNR. The camera offers installers a compact (6.7"×5.8") footprint, modifiable mounts and domes, and simple analog connectivity. Labor-saving mounting enables fast, hassle-free installation in a wide variety of electrical junction boxes.
