Examining Panoramic Video OfferingBy: John Honovich, Published on Aug 18, 2009
Earlier this year, 3xLogic released 360 degree panoramic dewarping/management software. It's a different approach to the hyped Mobotix Q22/Q24.
3xLogic allows end users to use third party megapixel cameras (Arecont, IQinVision, etc.) and adds a fisheye lens (3xLogic recommends the 3MP Tuss fisheye) [link no longer available]. Their hybrid NVR appliances can then dewarp and display video.
The cost structure is similar though instead of being required to use Mobotix's VMS, 3xLogic's NVRs are required. For 3xLogic and their dealers, it is a nice feature to have and an alternative to Mobotix. It's also a good differentiator to the many other DVR/NVR applainces in the mid-market.
