Here are the steps to dewarp fisheye images for the CVIVD-EL4F camera via the local interface of a supported Fisheye Elite Series DVR and Smart PSS.

While on the local interface – right-click and select Fisheye. You will need to enter your login information if you haven’t logged in yet. From here there are two options:

  • Fit Mode (ceiling, wall, and ground options)
  • Show Mode (7 different single and split-screen viewing options)Dewarp Fisheye

The 9-Split View (in the bottom row) has nine separate views on one screen. Each of the outer 8 squares is found as a specific color located in the middle of the screen. You are able to sort these and arrange them differently. Simply click the center inside any of the squares and drag it to change the viewing direction.
