Oncam has made their name since the early 2000s as a fisheye specialist, focusing only on panoramic cameras. To see how this specialist stacks up against their generalist competitors like Axis or Hikvision, we bought and tested the Oncam Evolution 12 Outdoor (EVO-12NxD), their IK10/IP66 rated vandal-proof model.
Inside, we examine:
- VMS dewarping differences (Avigilon, Exacq, Genetec, Milestone)
- Camera side dewarping / "VCams"
- Stream configuration
- Full light image quality
- Low light/dark image quality
- Bandwidth consumption
- Physical construction
