Is there a way to rotate the satellite image and all the included objects that have been placed on it?
What is the protocol to request the addition of a camera model? I'm looking for the Canon VB-M50 please.
Hey Guys. I'm currently stuck on the error message. I tried to export a project in PowerPoint format and the export failed. I reloaded the page to try again and now all I get is the error message and I can't choose another project or create a new one. Any recommendations?
The satellite imagery is really old. Im trying to do a design for a large site but the satellite view is over 10 years out of date. Can a google earth image be imported and worked on, or can you offer the choice of imagery sources?
It's been 24 hours and I'm still dealing with that error message. Are you guys able to delete my projects to see if that solves the issue?
Hi. After adding a floor plan, I am unable to set the scale. I can adjust the green bar to the desired location, but I am unable to set type a number in the "Width" box or change the value of the "Feet" box (not that I want to change it, but I'm supposed to be able to click on it and select a different type). I've tested it in both Firefox and Edge. Same results in both. I've also tried different images and PDFs. Am I missing something simple here?

Nathan - it should work like this:
If not, please email me a permalink: email@example.com
I'm having the same problem with scaling the floor plan and I'm using IE11.
doesn't work in Chrome any more. I had no issues with a previous version.
When I export my project, the view is "zoomed in" cutting off the top of the building that I have laid out the exterior cameras for. There are no cameras in this area but I would still like to show the entire building on the "overview" page of my powerpoint. How can I fix this? Thanks!

The previous version had a camera height option. I am not seeing that option on the new calc?

Thank you for the response back John! Other than that V3 is really great! I had one more question. Is there a way we can add an option for 360/180 panoramic views? I found a few axis cameras that when selected either give you the panoramic view or 360 view but not both.

Hello- I would like to ask that the Avigilon selection in the calculator be expanded to include the HD PRO series.
I have a situation where I need to cover a bar in a stadium, that is about 280 feet from the nearest camera mounting location and the locator doesn't have the upper range of options.
Would this be possible?
Hi guys, great job on the latest calculator. I just want to ask about uploading scenes of my own. Is there any tutorial to get the right picture uploaded perfectly ?
Having issues getting the label feature to work today?
The calculator does not have the "re-sort" camera feature like the previous version.
If you export or for any reason, edit a camera and export in either pdf or ppt formats, most often it's not in numerical order (Camera 1, Camera 2 etc.) and there doesn't appear to be an option to fix or shuffle the placement for ascending order value and/or presentation.
Also, there was the "close" option within the previous calculator version and not now, so we're just switching between views of compiled projects. Can this be resolved? The aforementioned issue is a higher priority though in my opinion.
Thanks for your time and input.

I'm having problem that the ppf will resize after i closed and re open the project (see below)
Camera#: Panasonic WV-SFV781L
1. before closing
2. after i reopen
I'm experiencing some problems with https://ipvm.com/calculator/HbDTuA
When exporting to pdf or word I only get the detail from the first 3 camera's.
Any clue what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks a lot
I can't seem to use the calculator at all if I am logged into my account. I thought it was a browser based issue, but after trying Chrome and Firefox, neither work while I am logged in, both work when I'm not.
First off, it is a pleasure to see the quick responses / resolutions for members in this thread. Great Job!
I have 2 questions: 1- Is it possible to get the Hanwha PNM-9080VQ added to the camera list?
Question#2: I had read that currently the Calculator does not support google map rotation. Does the Calculator support the rotation of imported maps? I am wanting to line up imported maps, and overlay them with the structure they represent.
I would like to know if we could edit the presentation exported by the calculator? Thanks!
How will I remove the Simulated person and logo of IPVM before exporting the file? Thanks!
When will the height of the cameras be re-introduced in the calculator. I need to know the dead zone just beneath the camera.
Is there a way to remove the map pane so that only the numbers and simulated views show on the screen. Sometimes I want to show someone just the numbers and simulated views, and the map pane gets in the way and is distracting when I don't need it.
Are you also considering a storage calc page, too? I know there is a ton of them out there, but most times I prefer not to send someone to a branded site that has one, especially a brand I don't sell or support.
And very much for the height calculator!
This alone is worth the price of admission. SUCH an awesome tool / app you've had made John; THANK YOU.
While no doubt, this is a group of people who know how much harder it is to bring an idea to fruition than others, I still think this is even more amazing than is explicitly stated.
Cannot thank you enough. BUT, then again, my uncle said... "There's nothing as sincere as cash."
Hopefully my membership, continued, will say it for me. :)
I am not seeing an Axis P1435-LE with 10-22mm lens as a selection. I tried the P1435LE with the 3-10.5mm lens but the slider will not take me to a 22 mm/18 degree FOV.
I've noticed that generic camera 4MP gives me more ppf compared to 5MP
Think something maybe wrong with the BOSCH cameras in the calculator. The list starts half way through the alphabet. I am looking for an AutoDome G3A, very common Bosch camera (several years ago) but can't find it in the list.
Hello, the camera icons keep falling out of view and not following placement within the uploaded floorplans (pdf) as they are adjusted. Please help. Thank you
The calculator has not worked in a couple of days for me. I have tried different browsers and different computers.
Any chance adding the Open Eye OE-C6123-W. Thanks!
With V3 and auto-save how do you start a new project from an existing one? I want to do a second version of a proposal but retain the original. If I type a new project name it renames the existing one. I don't see any option to copy or to save as a new project. I'm sure I'm just missing something.
I was looking to use the Arecont Vision AV20375RS in the Calculator but is come up indicating a max. FoV of 102°. This is an omni-directional camera capable of 360°. Can this be fixed in the Calculator?

What is the process to create a new project name or edit an existing project name? Have been unable to complete in the latest version of the tool.
IPVMU Certified | 01/09/18 03:45pm
Mark, the new project button is located at the top right:
To rename a project, just click the existing name and type the new name:

I find that the zooming function works well on some projects, and not so well on others?
Is there a reason for this?
IPVMU Certified | 01/18/18 01:24pm
I'm not seeing the field for the focal length in millimeters anymore. Was this removed?
The v3 calculator does not seem to have an option to indicate mounting height of the camera.

I am battling to upload scenes into the calculator - as per the picture above, they upload and come into the calculator upside down?
I am not seeing a way to save my uploaded scenes (my scenes) like in a previous
version? Was this done away with completely?
Thank you for your time.

Any way you could make it where I can upload pictures to the simulated view??
First, great tool. I appreciate the time taken to create something that's usable in our industry without the complexity of AutoCAD.
Second, I apologize in advance if someone has already asked/suggested what I am about to, analyzing all of the existing comments is a little tricky.
Is there a way to hide the camera icons, and leave only the triangles?
Is there a way to change the camera colors from the original blue?
From a communication standpoint, both of these are huge. The icons easily get cluttered when working in small spaces or zooming out and you really only need the visual triangle to know there's a camera there.
The camera colors would allow for differentiation between groups, such as differing models, old vs new, etc.
I feel both of these concepts could be implemented and controlled very cleanly on a per camera basis from the "All cameras" Menu. There could be a toggle hide/show on each of the camera line items for its icon, plus a color palette link that could dictate camera color. Or the config could be in the setting section for each individual camera.
Regardless of the implementation method, I believe both ideas are worth considering.
1. Is there a way to get a full page, overall drawing of the design that's a larger size on PDF export? The PDF provides it, but it would be great to get it in a larger format/sheet size to show customers.
2. Though I haven't tried it, can I bring in a multi-page document? I've just been separating sheets and starting separate projects for each (to get the single page view on the first page of the PDF export).
3. When using multi-sensor cameras, I have problems organizing the structure of the document based on what I call the camera, even if I start with the prefix "C1" or "Camera 1 -". Is there a way to manually compile the sequence of cameras listed so I can keep them in order?
Is it possible to add a FoV selection for fisheye cameras? i.e. 180 Wall Mount or 360 Ceiling.
I am having difficulties (again) with the calcualtor. I am unable to open any projects or create new ones. Please help.

Is there a way to copy a project and use it as a baseline for a new project? I know I can rename an existing project, but what I am looking for is to have 2 projects at the same location, like an Option 1 and Option 2. I can manually build the second project and give it a different name, but it would be good if I could take an existing one and save it with a different name instead of having to start it from scratch.

Thanks for advising me about the "Clone" button. I had not noticed it.
Hi. New user here. Just tried to add a single camera, but the simulated view does not update at all...remains a static POV. I thought this tool would utilize Google Maps for its simulated views. Am I missing something?
IPVMU Certified | 03/26/18 03:36pm
My question has to do with Corridor Mode and HFoV. I am applying a Panasonic WV-S2231L in a corridor application.
In the calculator, when I change the camera to Corridor Mode, the HFoV minimum setting is reduced to 17 degrees as expected and the field of view visually changes to match - all good.
However anytime I leave the calculator then return to that project the camera displays a wider HFoV of 23 degrees, even though the readout to the right still says 17 degrees HFoV. And the field of view is visually much wider than a nearby camera of same type set to 30 degree HFoV.
Same thing happens when I export the project to PDF - the specs above the camera say 23 degrees HFoV, even though the camera is still set to 17 degrees in the calculator. Also in the export the field of view is visually much wider than 17 degrees, much greater even than a nearby 30 degree HFoV camera.
I have had similar results with other cameras using corridor mode in the calculator.
Is there a setting or option I am missing?
Just decided to use this software today after using IP Video System Design Tool for years. Is there away to change the size of the camera for export? After I export the cameras, they are overlapping and way to large. Is there away to change the color or the cameras?
Hey guys, weird question. I have been using the calculator for awhile now, and have uploaded custom images taken from the client's site. I've done this before, and had very little issue. However, for some reason when I did this today it is sizing the pictures a bit odd. They are all off center and even if I drag the picture in the tool, any time I export the project it resets the pictures and they are off. Now to be completely honest, I don't recall the FOV as being an option in the past when uploading pictures. So I'm guessing that if this is a new feature, I must be using it wrong. Could you guys point me in the right direction to get these images corrected?
Still getting this window , can't access the calculator!
Just a reminder: if you have an urgent issue, rather than just a "how-to" question, please email firstname.lastname@example.org directly. That helps us prioritize and track issues better.
Perfect it is working. Thank you.
Is the calculator down? I have tried different browsers and different machines with no luck.

A couple questions......
1. I see a labels button on the screen but when I press it, it does nothing. Is this supposed to work? We'd love to be able to label the cameras on the layouts!
2. Is there a way to turn cameras on/off? We'd like to be able to show the individual camera's FOV without all the other cameras showing too.
1) To create a label, click on the label button and then click on the project:
2) You can't turn cameras on and off, we've had requests for being able to enable or disable the Camera FoV coverages, but it is not currently possible
I am unable to delete my projects.
