Panoramic PTZ is a groundbreaking new technology developed by the VIVOTEK R&D team for monitoring open areas with extreme detail. This feature is realized through the synergy of a VIVOTEK megapixel fisheye camera with speed dome camera, and allows users to simultaneously monitor an area overview from a fisheye model while providing the capability for a detailed regional view from a speed dome. The VIVOTEK megapixel fisheye camera provides 360° surround view without blind spots, while the VIVOTEK speed dome provides fast, precise pan/tilt/zoom movement through its robust design and captures details with precise quality from extreme distances. Suitable applications for Panoramic PTZ include department stores, station lobbies, airports, parking lots, and any wide open areas where comprehensive video surveillance systems and the capability for extreme video detail are essential.

The combination of a fisheye global view and a speed dome camera accomplishes a seamless surveillance solution in which the fisheye camera’s global view is used as the “command” unit to detect events across an entire area, and the speed dome acts as the “slave” to track and zoom in on suspicious objects for detail at up to HD resolution with optical zoom. In both the panoramic as well as surround views, users can utilize the ultra-smooth PTZ function to easily zoom in and focus on a region of interest (ROI) via a mouse to track the object of interest, allowing views of objects such as license plates from up to hundreds of meters away. By activating the auto tracking feature, surveillance efficiency is increased as the fisheye is used to trigger the speed dome to track moving objects within a wide area before an operator may be aware of suspicious activity. Most importantly, VIVOTEK Panoramic PTZ saves on the overall cost of the surveillance system, effectively reducing the number of cameras, labor costs, power consumption, and maintenance expenses.

To attach the camera to AM-51A mounting adaptor:

  1. Remove the camera’s top cover.
  2. Fasten 2 included screws to the D holes (not the D+ hole).
  3. Route cables through the adapter.
  4. Align the camera with the mounting adapter and let the 2 screws enter the key holes located on the sides where the camera’s cabling interfaces reside, e.g., the Ethernet port.
  5. Rotate the camera counter- clockwise. You can then see the D+ hole through the slotted screw hole (in front of the Micro SD slot).
  6. Fasten screws to secure the camera to the mounting adapter.

  1. Drill pilot holes into the ceiling. Then hammer four anchors into the holes.
  2. Secure the pendant head to the ceiling using four screws.
  3. Connect the two white header connectors to the J6 and J7 connectors.
  4. Connect the Ethernet cable to the RJ-45 socket.
  5. You will find a desiccant bag attached to the camera. Replace the desiccant bag included in the camera with the one shipped within the accessory bag.
  6. Attach the dome cover to the camera by driving its anti-tamper screws.
  7. Route cables through a 3/4” conduit from the pendant head.

  • Determine a hard surface ceiling location. Use the four mounting holes on the wall mount bracket to mark the positions where holes will be drilled to secure the bracket and routing cables. Note that screws are user-supplied and they should be at least 11mm long.
  • Feed cables through the bracket.
  • Install the pendant pipe.
  • Install the camera to the mounting adapter. See Attach Camera to Mounting Adapter on the previouspage.
  • Install the mounting adapter to pendant pipe.
  • Tighten the connection using the included hex wrench.
  • Install the speed dome camera next to the fisheye, with their lens positioned at approximately the same height. For details about speed dome installation, please refer to its documentation.
  • Connect all cabling, including the IO cables to J6 and J7, and the Ethernet cable to RJ-45 connector.
  • Install the dome cover by fasteninng the anti-tamper screws.
