The CF81-E supports three different view modes. You can change the view mode to best suit the needs of the install location.

Note: A user will need Site Admin privileges in order to change the camera's view mode.

180° Panoramic

The first view mode is 180° Panoramic. With this mode, the camera will cover a 180° horizontal view.

Steps to Configure

  1. Navigate to the Info tab of the camera

  2. Select the Fisheye Mode

  3. Select 180° Panoramic

Four-Way Split

The second mode is Four-Way Split. The Four-Way Split mode allows you to monitor four specific areas at the same time. This view mode is particularly well suited to monitor an outdoor corner or to replace multiple cameras with a single one.

Steps to Configure

  1. Navigate to the Info tab of the camera

  2. Select the Fisheye Mode

  3. Select Four-Way Split

Changing angles of the Four-Way-Split

Site admins can update the angles in the Four-Way-Split to optimize the fields of view to suit their needs. To start editing the angles of the four tiles, click on Edit Panel View from the camera image setting menu.

Arrows will now appear on the tiles, confirming that the user is now in edit mode

Clicking on the arrows changes the position of the tile. To confirm, or delete changes, use the buttons at the bottom of the Four-Way-Split screen.

If the user points one of the tiles outside of the field of view of the sensor, the image will look distorted.

Point the tile in the direction opposite of the issue to restore image quality.

Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ)

The third mode is Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) and it is configurable. In Pan-Tilt-Zoom you can decide to show the video feed either as a 360° view, or explore the video with your digital PTZ functionality. You can switch seamlessly between the two.

Steps to Configure

  1. Navigate to the Info tab of the camera

  2. Select the Fisheye Mode

  3. Select Pan-Tilt-Zoom

Once you have changed the camera to the PTZ mode you will need to set the Mount Location to enable the correct controls for the digital PTZ.

Steps to Configure

  1. Navigate to the Info tab of the camera

  2. Select Mount Location

  3. Select either Mounted to Wall or Mounted on Ceiling depending on where the camera is mounted

Note: The Panoramic and Four-Way Split modes support our People Analytics, and Crowd notifications features but the PTZ mode does not.
