Axxon Next video management software just got a big boost from adding 360-degree panoramic viewing certified by ImmerVision Enables.
With the addition of a panamorph camera, Axxon Next users will receive amplified peripheral resolution that will both enhance distant objects and increase efficiency during investigations.
“360-degree solutions are becoming a critical component in security applications [because] people want to see and control whole areas with no blind spots,” explained Murat Altuev, president of Axxon.
Adding, “ImmerVision Enables lets us provide cutting-edge 360-degree visibility and, combined with Axxon Next VMS functionality, meet the market’s top standards.”
Axxon specializes in IP-based physical security information management, video management software, intelligent video analytics, facial recognition, road-traffic and POS monitoring.
IP-based video surveillance streams wherever a network can reach, allowing for remote security monitoring. Wireless streaming technology allows for connections in urban areas where deployment of cable may be cost-prohibitive or difficult, while cabled Ethernet connections enable power, pan/tilt functions and videos over a single line.
Axxon technology also provides intelligent event processing, in which camera streams are automatically triggered based on pre-set criteria to a workstation, monitor or PDA. This processing is made possible by the Axxon Next VMS platform.
Within the Axxon Next VMS, for instance, security personnel can utilize platform navigation tools to zoom digitally into elements of a hemispheric panamorph image. Also, security officers can combine multiple images from the same panamorph camera to watch a complete scene unfold without blind spots. The technology works with both live and recorded images.
ImmerVision Enables is a software development kit that can be combined with other programs to produce a panamorphic viewer. ImmerVision has also created the world’s smallest 360-degree panamorph lens, which offers a 182 x 360-degree field-of-view from a 6 millimeter lens.
The company is designing an even smaller lens than the six millimeter lens for deployment in smartphones and tablets.
ImmerVision CMO, Alessandro Gasparini expressed enthusiasm about ImmerVision’s certification of the Axxon Next VMS platform. “There is massive potential for 360-degree solutions in security, and VMS vendors like Axxon are one-step ahead, leading this growth by developing impressive viewing capabilities with panomorph technology,” stated Gasparini.
