    How to switch the viewing mode of panoramic camera in Operator Client?

    Operator Client helps you display the original full image circle of a panoramic camera, its image dewarped or you can select a point of interest of the image.
    Cropping and using ePTZ in a cropped image is possible in Live and Playback Mode. The Image window allows a flexible resizing of the Image pane that displays a panoramic camera or any other camera.

    This article provides you information on how you can switch the view mode of panoramic camera in Operator Client.

    Article requirements:

    • Operator Client
    • Panoramic camera
    • PC/ Server/ Workstation

     

    Step-by-step guide

    Check before adding the camera to BVMS what the camera its "Application Variant" is set to

    1. Full circle only > (Client side dewarping) > this way the dewarping needs to be done by the viewing client for example BVMS or (VSC) Video Security Client
    2. Dewarp > (Edge dewarping) > in this variant the camera becomes 3 cameras in 1, and sends out 2 already dewarpt streams + 1x Full circle.
      The camera dewarpt streams can e.g. be used for viewing applications that don't support dewarping

    For BVMS both variants can be used, but only the Full circle can be dewarpt in the Operator client.
    Therefore we would advice to set the application variant not to Dewarp unless specifically required, this because BVMS will do the dewarp, this will also save camera CPU.

    In case you have Edge-Dewarped streams, these can be normally viewed as a fixed camera in the Operator Client. The FoV needs to be changed outside BVMS for example via the camera webpage.

    2. Select the panoramic camera > Drag and drop it into the Image pane (right side)

    If original full image circle is displayed and you don't have the option to switch the view of the image, you should choose another stream.
