Is there a way to set height of camera? Was looking to use this for the first time and I have some cameras that will be installed on 80' light towers. Seems to me that I will not get accurate data if the height isn't taken into consideration.
Hi there, is there a way to adjust the view (to allow for 4 lens options) for an Arecont Omni 20175DN camera?
Having some trouble with accessing the camera calculator; it seems that when i attempt to access it without logging in, it will work fine. Once i log in, it will hang. Is this a common issue?
when i use the calculator it comes up with the tutorial and I cant select cameras?

Thanks for adding the camera Ryan.
Question regarding PPF calcs and corridor mode. When I shift to corridor mode on any camera with that capability does the calculator then use what is normally the vertical pixel count to calculate PPF?
Hi, Need help.. my IPVM Calculator doesn't show the street view on the right side..
Thanks Sean, Hope you fix it because i have 2 projects with around 400+ cameras and it's a little bit frustrating to unlock and move each camera just to refresh the street view. appreciate your support. thank you.
how to use calculator without simulated view and facial images only?
thank you for your prompt response.
It is the simulated view which causes confusion not the person or number plate.
The simulated view keeps popping up even if it has no relation to the actual camera scene and is cofusing specially the board with numbers which is completely out of focus in contrast to the projected camera shot.
Is there a way to duplicate multiple cameras. Since most multi-sensor cameras are shown using a single imager for now, it'd be nice to be able to copy 2 or 4 cameras at once to reflect one multi-sensor camera used else on the floor plan.
Please check the footage calculations for the Axis P3807 multisensor 180 camera. When expanding how wide the camera can see the footage on google earth is way off. If I extend the camera to cover the entire backside of a building it says the building is about 1500' instead of about 500'.
The calculator page is not loading.
The calculator is down, again, in Chrome. On ie it will not import a drawing.
I am trying to put the Axis M3106 camera into corridor format and it says anything above 120 degrees will not do this but this camera will.
Trying to pull a report but seeing full blue camera coverage when I export it (either PDF or DOC format). Any ideas?
Camera Tilt: Should I use this option to adjust/compensate for blind spots when placing cameras on an image or should the camera location be adjusted accordingly.
Is there any way to maintain the quality of a PDF when adding as a floor plan? Seems that the calculator heavily compresses the PDF and quality turns out to be pretty poor/low resolution.
Can you please fix the following in the calculator?
Hikvision camera model DS-2CD2542FWD-IS
There are three different versions that they manufacture. 2.8mm, 4mm and 6mm fixed focal length. In the calculator they are all under one and I am forced to manually adjust the focal length once the camera is on the layout. I only know the focal length by checking the spec sheet.
If you could fix this, it would be great! As I use those cameras quite often.
Is there a way to close the right side of the calculator? Would be nice to just view the map side alone.

I have a ongoing problem, when you add a label to the calculator and type out "map 1" and then as you work zooming in and out around the calculator adding cameras the text of your label shrinks down to where it is unreadable.
I'm putting together a project with 16 fixed cameras, all the exact same model but I'm having to go into the select camera, pick the vendor, pick the model process for every single one. Is there a way to globally pick a camera model to apply to all cameras at one time?
Hi, I raised this question before but not having much success.
I would like to use the camera calculator without having any images, I have followed instruction by not selecting the images but it is doing its own thing and I am getting images next to the camera/scene choice which are entirely inappropriate.
I am happy with the facial images.
very frustrated any help?
why are is the simulated views appearing on my camera calculator even though I select it not to be shown?
Can I enter coordinates in Lat , Long or Google + codes ?
I tried and cannot get to the desired location. Sometimes name of the place in not enough...

If I customize my camera views from photos shot at my site, when I change FoV, will it show what the camera will see in my uploaded scene?
If so, what is the best photo setting to use when photographing the scene view on site?
Last night it appear as though there was a new feature in the calculator, tilt. Now this morning that's gone and so it half my work on the design I was working on. Did something happen or am I just imaging this?

when adding a certain type of camera the Calculator map, it becomes darker and darker as i add more cameras of that type, until it is compleatly black. I have only found this issue with the DS-2DP1636Z-D - 180° option. Do you know what is the reason ?
IPVMU Certified | 03/08/19 03:33pm
when exporting to any format, part of the data (such as ppm and camera height) in the exported file is obstructed by the picture. The reason seam to be that the thumbnail showing the type of camera, forces the text data to the third text line. In turn ending up behind the picture. See comparison of a export with a generic camera and a specific one.
Can you add the GeoVision AVD4710? You already have the AVD8710 so it should be an easy one.
In the Calculator, Hikvision model DS-2CD4A26FWD-IZHS8/P has two lens options, 2.8-12mm and 8-32mm, which is correct, but the associated AOV for the corresponding lens is swapped. In the Calculator the 2.8-12mm is representing a 13.5-42.2 degree lens and the 8-32mm is representing a 32-92 degree lens.
how to use the calculator without getting any scenes?
the scenes are not appropriate, yes for the simulated person but not the scenes please.

I'm still learning this tool.
I intend to use this tool to provide a report to the customer. Having said that, more discussion in this tutorial on using custom views of customer site and the limitations would help in making the report more specific to the customers environment. Specifically, how you photograph the scene, what do you record, what scene parameters are best captured and how the scene shot interacts with the camera selection and parameter adjustments.
It seems I found two bugs:
-with an export to pdf the first camera isn’t zoomed in, also nr six didn’t look great.
- when changing from landscape, to portrait and back again, the ppm doesn’t match the actual view
When using the CSV export, the notes section is truncated. Would be nice to have a complete export of all notes. I can provide examples if needed.
May I request the Sensera SiteWatch PRO2 to be added to the Calculator? Thank you!
Is there anyway to suppress the model numbers of the cameras for customer presentation?
When checking off "Show camera blind spot" - what does the shaded and unshared area mean? I "think" that the shared area means that the area has limited view?
It seems I can't add floor plans anymore. I tried PNG and PDF but no result.
Thanks a lot
I'm new here and have been trying to take in the vast amount of helpful content available.
The Camera calculator is fairly intuitive and I was able to pick it up fast except I have not found an option to exclude the example images and Street View section from the right side of the view. I have several residential jobs in the works and just don't need that portion to appear. Also when doing a workup we want to add the specific cameras but I do not necessarily wish to tell a prospective client every single camera and detail for placement and then not get the job having armed them with everything they need to shop it themselves. Is there something I am missing here?
Thanks- that is what I missed. I did cut out what I did not need but it was an unwanted step. I'll re-do one with blank scene to verify but feel that will solve part of it.
Also though after doing the export when I am prepping the package to market to the customer I have all the cam specs including the model etc showing across the top. I want that info available for me but if I do not choose to share it can that be unchecked?
Fair enough and thanks for the response
Forgive me if this has already been asked. Any opportunity to export to vsdx for added external markings for gates, doors, roi, etc...
Working with a new layout and tried to select a PNM-7000VD . Idea being using a dual imager on a single drop to give better coverage and run less cable. On the camera calculator though I am seeing PNM-7000VD (Single Imager) and I think this is incorrect? or maybe I just misunderstand...
Below a previous writeup on IPVM called this a dual imager as I would expect If this was actually giving the dual capability in the calculator maybe we could show both areas on the calculator from the single device? Thanks
Need more google street view to be added in GCC countries
I have a project any one professional with new camera calculator v3
Export function beings to start, but never completes. I have attempted to export both snapshots and .pdfs.
Is there a specific iPad user guide for Calculator v3? Or more specifically what the limitations are when using V3 with an IPad?
With all the thousands of cameras now in the calculator, is there a plan either flag or offer a filter to filter out cameras not being currently sold? I have had it happen now a few times where I added a camera to a project only to find out later that it has be EOLed. Thanks!
I know it isn't available yet, but can you add the Axis P3719-PLE.
It would also save time to have a 180 and 270 degree configuration for these types of cameras in addition to the 360.
Can we get the Axis Q874#-LE cameras changed from bullet to PTZ?
When I plan using the tool and they show as a bullet fixed cam it doesn't accurately show the coverage provided by the camera.
It would be really nice if we could make a generic camera be a PTZ as well.
I have a few cameras in a project that are from a small manufacturer and are not in the calculator but are PTZ. When showing the project to stakeholders it would be nice if they they had the circle.
The camera is an infiniti PHX-39X-TI
It has a 1/2.8" Exmor progressive scan CMOS is 1920X1080.
Min illumination is 0.05LUX for color and 0.0008 LUX for BW. It has a ZLID laser as well.
It is auto focus and auto shutter speed between 1/50 to 1/10,000.
It's a PTZ and has a 8-315mm lens
Would it be possible to add a measuring tool to the calculator? I use Visio a lot and love the measuring option there.
I find myself using a spare camera to get distances on floor plans when planning camera layouts. Sometimes the spare camera gets overlooked and I'll forget to delete it. This then leads to confusion later on.

This is all i see when i sign in and then go to calculator, it does in on my laptop and desktop, in chrome and Internet Explorer. Please help!
There are some features that will make the tool very useful, and my life easier:
- multi layer with the ability to show and hide layers
- multi lens Camera support without stacking multiple copies
- the ability to export an image in high-resolution snapshot so I can zoom into details offline
Can't zoom in past city block level. I just imported a floor plan. Sized it against the building on the map but can't zoom in to place and adjust cameras. The screenshot below is a zoomed in as I can get.
