This article will help you set up Eagle Eye Networks de-warping feature for fisheye cameras.  

How to add Viewports

      1.  Find your camera on the dashboard and click the Camera Settings button   of the fisheye camera you wish to set up. 

      2.  Click the  Dewarping tab in Camera Settings

      3.  Next Select the  Orientation of the camera.   

Orientation refers to where the camera is physically mounted.  If it is mounted on a wall, select Wall.  If it's mounted on a ceiling, select Ceiling.  If it is mounted on the floor, select Floor. 

      4.  In order to add a  Viewport, click the yellow plus 

      5. Fill in the  Name field for your Viewport. 

      6. Select your  Viewport Type. 

      7.  Choose the angle that you wish the Viewpoint to face.

            7.1   Click the move symbol     on the image to select it.  The move symbol will turn green.
            7.2 Click and drag the image to position the Viewpoint.

      7. Click Apply then  Save Changes.      

The fisheye Viewports will not have a symbol to the left of them like other cameras on the dashboard.
The Viewports are currently only viewable from  Camera Settings  and  Layouts  after being created. 

Viewport Types


Double Panorama

Quad View

Adding your Viewports to a layout

      1.  Navigate to the  Layouts  tab on the left side of the page.  
      2.  You can either create a New Layout or Add Cameras to and existing layout by clicking the blue layout button. 

      3.  Add your Viewports just like normal cameras to your layout. 

You can also now check  Show Viewports Only to help you isolate them from other cameras.  

      4.  Save your  Layout  and now the Viewports will be visible. 

Editing Viewpoints

      1.  Open  Camera Settings  and select the  Dewarping  tab.  


      Click the Pencil    to rename your Viewport.
      Click the Trash   to delete the Viewpoint. 
      Click the Blue Arrows      to move the Viewport to a different position in the list. 

      2.  After any changes are made, click  Apply  and then  Save Changes. 

Remember: if you want to save the position of the camera image of a viewport (what the camera is looking at) make sure to make the changes in "Camera Settings". Any PTZ changes made in preview images, history browser, or live view are only temporary. As soon as you close the window the camera image will be back to its original position.

Virtual PTZ: Positioning the Viewpoint

Note: Any user with permission to view video can use Virtual PTZ to virtually pan, tilt and zoom within the full 360-degree image because it does not change the recorded video.

The Viewpoints can be moved in both the Live View and the Historical Browser & Previews.

      Live View 

             Hold and drag to move the image.

      History Browser & Previews

             Single click on the spot you want the camera to center on.

Remember:  No matter the position of the Viewpoint in the Historical Footage, the entire area captured by the fisheye camera will be part of the footage.  Therefore, the angle can be changed in historical footage.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us. 

Have a great day,
