Here are the Manufacturers that Do and Do Not Support Corridor Mode

By IPVM Team, Published Dec 23, 2014, 12:00am EST

A lot of integrators like corridor mode.

This functionality is sometimes called 'hallway mode' or 9:16 or portrait or 90° rotation, etc.

The most common practical example is in hallways, where such a mode better fits that layout of what is being monitored, as shown in the comparison below:

Inside, we break down the results, including 7 manufacturers that do not support, 4 that do, and 2 that claim it is upcoming. Plus, we show how you can now search for corridor mode inside our Camera Finder.

In 2018, most manufacturers support corridor mode on at least some cameras, if not all, making it a nearly universal feature.

  • ACTi
  • Arecont
  • Avigilon
  • Axis
  • Bosch
  • Dahua
  • Hanwha
  • Hikvision
  • Illustra
  • Panasonic
  • Pelco
  • Sony
  • Vivotek

Here are 225 cameras supporting corridor mode listed in IPVM's camera finder. Users can toggle cameras with corridor mode "on" or "off" under the imaging tab, as shown in the example image:

This will help you compare and contrast cameras that may be more suitable for hallway scenes.

VMS Support

Even if a camera does not support 'corridor' mode, if the VMS supports rotating the video feed 90°, this can deliver the functionality to any connected camera.

For example, Avigilon and Network Optix support rotation on the VMS side. However, Avigilon's cameras do not support this rotation camera side, relying on Avigilon (or other) VMSes to rotate.

Note: Avigilon's cameras are not marked as supporting corridor mode because it requires their VMS to deliver the functionality.
