ImmerVision’s mission is to enable users to see everything around them with its patented 360° panomorph lenses and ImmerVision Enables® immersive viewing functionality. ImmerVision licenses its panomorph optical and software technology to lens producers, product manufacturers, and software developers worldwide. ImmerVision panomorph lenses are the only ones available today that can be adapted to any camera and any sensor, for use in any consumer, commercial, or government market.
Thanks to their highly-advanced optical resolution capability, panomorph lenses combined with leading video surveillance cameras and software enable 360˚ situational awareness, remove blind spots, and provide consistent all around viewing, both live and playback.
Compared to a fisheye lens, the panomorph lens has greater optical image sensor coverage with increased optical magnification on the periphery and provides a superior picture even on lower resolution cameras. This means a panomorph lens requires less sensor resolution to produce a quality 360° image than a fisheye lens, allowing one to increase the number of cameras without using up all available bandwidth.
The ImmerVision Enables program certifies that a camera device, viewing software, or lens uses panomorph technology to capture or display 360° immersive images. ImmerVision Enables is a growing global standard that assures users of the compatibility between 360° hardware and software.
