Glossary: E-Flip (Electronic Flip)

E-Flip or Electronic Flip is a feature found in some PTZ cameras which have a 180° tilt.  It allows a moving target to be tracked when they move directly underneath a security camera. Normally if a target moves underneath the camera the image will be upside once it has passed the 90° point.

What E-Flip does is detect the position of the camera and automatically flip the image to the correct orientation so that it will always appear the right-side-up.

For security monitoring this allows quicker response time from the camera as a conventional CCTV camera with a 90° tilt action will have to rotate 180° before allowing the operator to continue tracking the target. It also makes following a moving target much simpler.
