What is Corridor Mode?
Corridor mode, also know as 9:16 mode, is a feature on most VIP Vision, Watchguard and Securview camera products that allows the user to rotate the camera image 90 degrees, converting the widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio to a narrow portrait style 9:16. This can be very useful when a camera is viewing a narrow aisle or corridor where most of a widescreen image would be taken up by walls or shelving.
This process requires that the camera is physically rotated 90 degrees and then is also rotated 90 degrees in the NVR / CVR / IP Camera configuration. This rotation is best suited to tri-axis or turret style dome cameras, but can also be used on bullet or full body style cameras if the housing and mount allows for the correct physical tilt and rotation.
Here is a video explaining the concept and showing how to implement the feature:
Note: To use Corridor Mode, cameras must be set to 4.0MP (2688 x 1520) resolution or lower. Please adjust your 5.0MP, 6.0MP, 8.0MP or higher resolution cameras when configuring for Corridor Mode.
To enable corridor mode, first physically rotate the camera 90 degrees horizontally.
Now we need to flip the image so it is not sideways. Go to the Main Menu, then select Camera under Management.
Select Image from the left panel then click on the drop-down box labelled Flip and choose the correct rotation.
You will notice the image appears stretched. This can be rectified by enabling Original Scale.
Go to the MAIN MENU, then click on the 2nd dot at the bottom of the menu, or use the scroll wheel to go to the next page.
Click on Display.
Select Original Scale and choose the camera channel then click ok and save.
