Using an Axis M3007-P with Axis Camera Station

With the recent release of Axis’ 360°/180° hemispheric dome the M3007-P / M3007-PV we’ve been asked a few times how the fisheye dewarping is achieved in Axis Camera Station, the brand’s main video management and recording software. Axis Camera Station does not natively include any de-warping technology so this processing task is left to the camera. First, some background…

See our First Look blog post on the Axis M3007-PV with sample videos.

The M3007-P delivers multiple view types for recording whether the camera is wall or ceiling mounted and integrates a 5MP sensor with a max resolution of 2592×1944. On top of its 360° fisheye overview image the cameras have a number of dewarped views: 180° panoramic, quad and manually selected view areas. In order to get these different resolutions recording in Axis Camera Station you need to make a choice when adding the camera as to which view to use. The views to select from are as follows:

  1. Overview – a non-dewarped fisheye overview (360°)
  2. Panorama – one dewarped 180° panoramic view
  3. Double panorama – two dewarped 180° panoramic views (ceiling mounted cameras only)
  4. Quad view – Four dewarped 90° views, one for each direction (ceiling mounted cameras only)
  5. View area – a dewarped 90 view with PTZ
  6. View area – a dewarped 90 view with PTZ
  7. View area – a dewarped 90 view with PTZ
  8. View area – a dewarped 90 view with PTZ

When adding the camera to ACS select the most appropriate view for your needs from the list above.
