Wide Area Surveillance

We don’t like to miss anything and neither should you. Dahua panoramic cameras provide 180°, 270°, and 360° view options that provide wide-area video surveillance for increased situational awareness. Fisheye and Multi-sensor cameras replace multiple single-sensor cameras providing easier installation and a higher return on investment.

Minimize blind spots and improve situational awareness with any Dahua Panoramic camera.

Unstitched Multi-sensor Technology

Multi-sensor cameras with unstitched images encompass two or more single sensor cameras in one housing for higher efficiency in covering wide area surveillance. Each individual sensor provides a single output and can be positioned independently based on the requirements of the scene. This type of camera is ideal for reducing the clutter of multiple cameras, decreases total cost of ownership and offers a more customizable, flexible solution.

Recommended scenarios: Intersecting hallways, multiple targeted monitoring points

Stitched Multi-sensor Technology

Multi-sensor cameras with stitched image technology are ideal for capturing busy, wide area surveillance. Dahua Multi-sensor options include three, four or eight single sensor cameras that are precisely aligned in a single housing for a 180º seamless image, without blind spots. Since operators are tasked with monitoring multiple cameras at once, stitched Multi-sensor camera technology increases efficiency and effectiveness as scenes are easier to view compared to switching focus between cameras.

Recommended Scenarios: Large heavy traffic areas such as stadiums, shopping malls or city surveillance.

Fisheye Technology

Fisheye cameras are ideal for capturing small to mid-size scenes without blind spots at a 180º or 360° field of view. Dahua fisheye cameras feature a single CMOS sensor with resolution choices of 5MP, 6MP, and 12MP compact housing options. Fisheye cameras use a special fisheye or panomorphic lens to produce video that has a circular shape and optically distorted. As a result, the image has to be dewarped in order for humans to make sense of the data. Dewarping can be done on the camera itself which is called edge dewarping or on the software side. Dahua 12MP and 5MP cameras dewarp at the edge and the 6MP has the ability to dewarp on the software side. Fisheye cameras are designed to replace multiple single-sensor cameras providing a higher return on investment for your security dollars.

Recommended scenarios: Open spaces such as retail stores, lobbies, classrooms
