    Dewarping Fisheye Cameras

    May 9th, 2024

    Fisheye dewarping processes an image from a fisheye camera and produces a new image without distortion similar to the image of a regular camera. On some recorders, fisheye dewarping can only be set and viewed through the web interface of the recorder.

    Below lists which recorders can fisheye dewarp through the recorder and which recorders can only fisheye dewarp through the web interface.

    To login to the web interface of your recorder, you would need a computer. There are 2 ways to login.

    1. Open Settings.

    3. Select Status, then Change Adapter Options.
    4. Right-click the network adapter you want to change the IP address for, and select Properties.
    5. Select the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) item.
    6. Click Use the following IP address and enter an IP address in the same range as the device you are trying to access. (E.g when trying to access use a IP address in the 192.168.1.x range.) Note: This cannot be the same as the device you are trying to connect to or any other device on the same network. Save your changes on both windows.
    7. Type the IP address of the device you are trying to access into the address bar of your web browser.
    8. Once finished configuring the device, change the adapter settings back to normal by following steps 1-6 and clicking Obtain an IP address automatically.

    Use Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge in Explorer mode and type the IP address of your recorder into the web browser.
