VIVOTEK - 12MP | 360° Surround View | 3DNR | Pixel Calculator | PPTZ | Fisheye Network Camera FE8191



VIVOTEK’s FE8191 is a market-leading Ultra-Megapixel fisheye fixed dome network cameras, featuring a detailed 12-Megapixel CMOS sensor which guarantees superb image quality. Equipped with a 1.5 mm fisheye lens for 180° panoramic view (wall mount) or 360° surround view (ceiling/wall/floor mount) with zero blind spots, the camera is able to provide total coverage of wide, open areas, such as airports, shopping malls, parking lots, retail stores, offices and more.

The FE8191 is equipped with a removable IR-cut filter and WDR Enhancement technology, which allows the cameras to maintain optimal image quality around the clock and unparalleled visibility under high-contrast lighting environments. 3D Noise Reduction technology enables the cameras to capture clear, polished video under low-light conditions. Plus, it is compatible with VIVOTEK’s Panoramic PTZ solution, allowing users to simultaneously monitor an area overview from a fisheye model while providing a detailed regional view from a speed dome camera.
