Hi Lee, are you able to share a sample image from the camera, both the warped overview and once it's dewarped? It may help to figure this one out. We did test the Brickcom panomorph minidome and it worked fine with Exacq, and the Arecont model should, as well.
You should be able to add the camera to Exacq, go to the digital zoom tab, and under digital zoom type, select "panomorph", ceiling or wall mount orientation, and then what dewarping style you'd like by default (panorama or dewarp). See this video at about 3:30:
Note that that video is the older, non-tabbed, Exacq setup screen so it looks a little different but options are the same.
One thing to note: with the Panomorph lenses, if the lens isn't oriented right, the VMS will not dewarp it. The ellipse should mostly fit into the frame like the image below or it may not detect it as a panomorph lens. It can be cut off top and bottom a little bit, but from what I've seen the sides should not be cut off. You'll have to physically turn the lens if it's not aligned properly.

Thanks Ethan! That was helpful. So got it figured out. But Arecont is just a megaball2 with a immervision lens installed. So i had it setup correctly but just extremely out of focus from the box. Also it doesn't flatten out right away until you zoom in which was just different then my Vivotek I was use to.
So took me about hour and half with two guys. Focusing correcting the oval shap and messing with brightness and gamma on camera side. Now all is good.
Wondering when I dewarp on the Vivotek fisheye is it doing that camera side or is it VMS? IF it is camera side dewarping then maybe that why I get flatten image right away vs imervision lens.
Thanks for help again.
