VIVOTEK Launches its First 5-Megapixel Fisheye Camera

VIVOTEK is launching the FE8172/72V, its first 5-Megapixel fisheye camera, for both indoor and outdoor applications. 

Equipped with 5-Megapixel CMOS sensor enabling viewing resolution of 1080p up to 30 fps and a 1.05 mm fisheye lens for 180° panoramic view or 360° surround view, VIVOTEK FE8172/72V camera is able to not only eliminate blind spots but also provide the greatest coverage with the finest details.

“We are launching a series of 5-Megapixel solutions this year, starting with the FD8372 designed for demanding outdoor environments,” said William Ku. “The 5-Megapixel fixed dome has received tremendous positive feedback from the industry and we are confident that the fisheye camera will, too.”

The FE8172V, the outdoor model, is EN-50155 certified and proven capable of performing in a railway application as the EN-50155 standard is used to regulate electronic equipment on rolling stock. The IP66-rated design, on the other hand, protects the camera against water and dust intrusion. The vandal-proof IK10-rated housing allows for robust protection from vandalism. As for the FE8172, the indoor model, it is designed to be installation-friendly and thus comes with a dimension smaller than the FE8172V.

According to Ku, VIVOTEK FE8172/72V is designed for open areas such as airports, shopping malls, parking lots, retail stores and offices.

Other upcoming 5-Megapixel models to be released in 2012 include IP8172 and IP8372.

The first 5-Megaxpiel fisheye camera from VIVOTEK is available as of Q3 this year. Please visit Product on the VIVOTEK website for more information.
