ImmerVision, the expert in 360° Panoramic Imaging Technology and inventor of the IMV1-1/3 panomorph lens, reports that a growing number of small and large organizations are adding ImmerVision’s 360-degree optics to complement their existing video surveillance installations. These companies already use numerous fixed and PTZ cameras to capture quality images of individuals entering their premises, however, they still can’t relate events and people in one single coherent view.

Today, the IMV1-1/3 lens added to existing CCTV analog or IP cameras, coupled with ImmerVision Enables DVR/NVR’s provide the quickest and most efficient way to add complete situational awareness to video surveillance systems.

Panomorph optics provide consistent 360-degree viewing, live or playback, of an entire area — critical in the banking, gaming, retailing, petroleum, public transit, manufacturing and government sectors. “Video surveillance “blindness” is dangerous and costly”, said Yves Messier, ImmerVision Vice-President Video Surveillance Applications. “End-users are demanding to “see everything, anywhere, at anytime” in order to detect perimeter intrusions and threatening behaviours, manage traffic and crowds, to track interactions between individuals and to be able to rapidly reconstruct the sequence of events in the case of an incident”.

Security experts and end-users can find superior 360° performance and compatibility within a growing number of ImmerVision Enables’ DVR/NVR/VMS from manufacturers such as Aimetis, Chubb, Cieffe (A March Network Company), Petards, Salient Systems, Sentry 360, Silicor, Stanley, and Verex. ImmerVision prides itself on the quality and reliability of its Panomorph lenses and continuously tests new cameras from a number of leading manufacturers. Some of the qualified cameras that meet the IMV1-1/3 requirements are available from Axis, Bosch, IQinvision, Panasonic and Pelco.
