Immervision makes a 360 degree lens for using with existing SD and 1.3 MP lens cameras (demo on their home page). Immervision does not claim they replace multiple cameras. Rather, it's an improved camera that can provide basic action identification over a large area. It won't show the details on someone's tattoo but it will clearly show how someone moved through a large area. Not revolutionary, of course, but likely to work well in this application. Key issues are cost ($749 MSRP for the lens) and 3rd party VMS compatability (still limited).
