Multiple Sensor Cameras

May 22, 2021

If you’re looking for the field of view of a fisheye lens but don’t want the distortion, you probably want to install a multisensor camera. This type of panoramic camera uses multiple discrete sensors and picture channels to capture up to a 360-degree field of view and uses image-processing software to stitch the channels together into a contiguous video feed.

Multiple sensor security cameras are better for low-light or infrared (you can even target several cameras to the same spot and capture overlapping video feeds on different frequencies) and they’re better for high resolution over fisheye lenses. Additionally, in case of damage or blockage to any single sensor, a multi-sensor security camera will keep broadcasting where a fisheye or other single sensor camera would fail.
