Oncam released a newly updated firmware that transforms the already powerful and compact C-Series cameras into some of the most advanced and flexible cameras of their kind on the market. With the addition of Multi-Mode, users can choose from five different views and stream up to four of them simultaneously.
Multi-Mode adds flexibility, versatility and ultimately expands the use cases possible with 360-video technology. With the updated C-Series, stakeholders are empowered to record everything that happens within a scene with 360-degree video coverage and at the same time easily configure substitute and more natural-looking views tailored to specific needs. The improved functionalities of the C-Series continue to be powered by the Qualcomm Vision Intelligence Platform, which spans a full range of system-on-chips (SoCs) created for running compute-intensive workloads at the edge of the network.
With Multi-Mode, users can stream four different views at any given time including:
- Fisheye: A standard 360-degree fisheye view that is ideal for total situational awareness.
- Panoramic+: A 5:2 pre-dewarped panoramic view best suited for wall-mounted cameras that use the center of the fisheye sensor to generate an actual 180-degree image. Panoramic+ also includes specifically designed accessories to help ensure the correct tilting of the camera at the desired angle. Created for both the Indoor and Outdoor Plus models, Panoramic+ accessories will be available to purchase from Q3. This 180-degree view can also be set for all streams in Panoramic+ Only Mode, providing a compelling replacement for popular Evolution 180 cameras, which are being placed in End Of Life.
- Corridor+: a split 2-way corridor view, Corridor+ allows to see in two opposite directions of a 360-image at the same time, with no gap in between, so that objects move seamlessly from one section to the other.
- T Corridor+: a perfect 3-way junction view, T Corridor+ focuses on three chosen directions in the fisheye image without any gap so that what is directly in front can be monitored as well as what’s on either side.
- VCam: a user-defined dewarped view of a chosen area of the fisheye image, where users can decide which specific area of the scene is of interest and focus on it.
