New HQO Panomorph Lens Enables Production of Powerful and Cost-Competitive 360-Degree Minidomes
MONTREAL --(Business Wire)--
ImmerVision, the inventor of the 360-degree panomorph lens and worldwide
expert in immersive optical technology, announced today that High
Quality Optics (HQO), a licensed panomorph lens manufacturer, has
released the first-ever high-megapixel, day/night, board-mount
360-degree panomorph lens.
Providing remarkably more coverage and pixel density than older fisheye
technology, this commercial-grade, multi-megapixel panomorph lens is the
catalyst for next-generation panomorph minidome launches in early 2013.
With this HQO panomorph lens, camera vendors are producing dramatically
more powerful 360-degree indoor and outdoor minidome cameras, while
maintaining competitive MSRP price-points.
"There is no similar-sized fisheye lens that outperforms this new
360-degree panomorph," states James Sohn, President from HQO. "With
costs comparable to fisheye cameras, panomorph cameras with similar
sensor resolution enable customers to significantly increase pixels per
inch (PPI), and reduce their coverage cost per square foot."
Unlike fisheye technology which requires proprietary dewarping software,
with panomorph, customers benefitfrom the broadest compatibility with
over 40 certified video surveillance solutions thanks to the open
ImmerVision Enables 360-degree viewing standard.
After simple plug-and-play installation of their panomorph minidomes,
users achieve hemispherical views transmitted without blind spots or
compromised resolution. They also experience immersive navigation in
live or playback, compare full-frame multi-angle views, and gain access
to impressive software-specific features that improve risk management.
"HQO's new panomorph lens is another example of the flexibility and
adaptability of panomorph technology," says Alessandro Gasparini, CCO at
ImmerVision. "Looking ahead, security users will choose panomorph
cameras for a simple reason: panomorph is radically more powerful, more
efficient and more compatible than any fisheye."
Leading innovation in 360-degree panoramic
imaging, ImmerVision licenses its panomorph optical and software
technology to global lens producers, product manufacturers and software
developers. Panomorph lenses are the only ones that can be adapted to
any camera, any sensor, and any consumer, commercial and government
market. ImmerVision Enables is the recognized standard for
360-degree solutions and applications. www.immervision.com.
