The MDF5450HD-DN Fisheye is a network camera with fisheye lens specially designed for the image sensor.

It offers a vertical 90° field of view and thus allows for the acquisition of a complete half-space with a 360° panoramic view.

Discreet Installation
The MDF5450HD-DN Fisheye consists of an ultra-compact sensor housing designed for discreet installation in suspended ceilings. In combination with the separate encoder housing, it can be installed even in confined spaces and operated with an external power supply or with PoE Class 0.

8 Megapixel Resolution
The high resolution of the sensor in combination with state-of-the-art encoder technology and sophisticated image processing enable the recording of a complete half-space (half sphere) in excellent quality and with an 8 megapixel resolution at a frame rate of up to 25/30 fps. This makes the camera ideal for applications where detailed capturing of an entire room is required, without blind spots and in real time.

H.265 Support
The cameras are equipped with encoder technology that supports encoding of the video stream according to the H.265 standard. This allows the data rate to be reduced by up to 50% compared to H.264 with the same resolution and image quality. In conjunction with the latest Dallmeier recording systems, a significant reduction in network and storage utilization can be achieved.

Dewarped Display
The dewarped display of the live image and recordings of an MDF5450HD-DN is supported by every workstation in the SeMSy® Video Management System with a digital PTZ function. In smaller video security systems, the convenient evaluation with Dallmeier Client Software is the ideal option. In addition to a PTZ function, Dallmeier Client Software supports the display of a dewarped 360° panoramic view or two 180° views of the half-space.

Video Content Analysis
The integrated Video Content Analysis (VCA) detects movements and objects in the uncompressed image and analyzes them in realtime (depending on the analysis resolution) with highly developed analysis functions such as Intrusion Detection or Line Crossing. The detected events can be used to trigger the recording of a Dallmeier recording system. Together with the detected objects and the corresponding metadata, they are stored in a database. This allows the targeted search and evaluation of the recordings by Dallmeier Client Software with the SmartFinder function.

AI Support
The camera is equipped with encoder technology that enables Video Content Analysis supported by AI (Artificial Intelligence) functions based on neural networks in the camera. This provides a significantly more powerful object classification which finally allows an even more targeted evaluation of the recordings.

The camera is equipped with a RAM memory that is used by the EdgeStorage function to store the video stream in case of a network failure (e.g. Spanning Tree, Bursts). When the network is restored, the SmartBackfill function ensures fast transmission to the Dallmeier recording system. This stores the video stream with high speed and then continues to record the live stream seamlessly.
