MONTREAL, Canada, September 17, 2014: ImmerVision, the inventor of the 360-degree panomorph lens and worldwide expert in immersive optical technology, announced today that iCanView361MP-PM, the latest 5-megapixel panoramic mini dome IP camera from iCanTek, is certified ImmerVision Enables®. Thanks to this leading 360° standard and the built-in panomorph lens, the vandal-proof iCanView361MP-PM mini dome offers customers the ability to capture a complete view of their security environment, without any distortion or blind spots.

Its 122mm diameter offers discrete mounting either on the ceiling for maximum 360° coverage, or on the wall for super-wide angle 180° field of views. Thanks to all-encompassing panomorph viewing, the iCanView361MP-PM is capable of projecting four different angles of a scene within a single viewing tile, adjacent to the full 360° image.

Customers can also display multiple cropped images (320×240) of a 360° area, literally recreating multiple camera views from one. This panomorph mini dome IP camera can be leveraged in new or existing installations to reduce costs, while dramatically improving situational awareness through its revolutionary panomorph lens.

“Customers should not be deceived by the miniature form factor of the iCanView361MP-PM. This panomorph mini dome IP camera is IP66 rated, so it is robust enough to handle very harsh environmental conditions as well as potential vandals,” said Mr. Jun Lee, General Manager from iCanTek. “Customers looking for tough yet powerful 360° panomorph mini dome can count on iCanView361MP-PM to suit their needs.”

Choosing this ImmerVision Enables certified camera combined with a certified ImmerVision Enables video management software (VMS) supplier, iCanTek customers can benefit from a number of panomorph viewing capabilities. In-tile pant-tilt-zoom functionality from a quad-view layout and other highly-efficient view modes can be displayed using the client viewer from the iCanTek NVR-PRO for faster decision-making and response. Customers can navigate and dive into the 360° panoramic views with 5 megapixel clarity without overburdening the network thanks to support for H.264 and MJPEG compressions.

“The iCanView361MP-PM was showcased at IFSEC 2014, and garnered a lot of industry attention for its low-profile, vandal-proof housing and its 5MP 360° panomorph viewing functionalities,” said Joel Schaffer, Manager, Business Development, OEM/ODM – Video Surveillance Applications at ImmerVision. “It’s an innovative video device that brings the benefits of high-resolution panomorph video to more demanding security applications.”
