Taipei, Taiwan, December 21, 2012 – QNAP® Security today announced that its VioStor network video recorder (NVR) series are among the first VMS platforms to support VIVOTEK®'s new FE8172/72V 5-Megapixel fisheye camera.

The VIVOTEK FE8172/72V camera comes with a 5-Megapixel CMOS sensor which enables viewing resolution of 1920x1920 or 1080p at up to 30 fps via a 1.05 mm fisheye lens for 180° panoramic view or 360° surround view. The camera is able to provide the greatest coverage with the finest details for excellent surveillance footage. The VIVOTEK IP8172P is also suitable for those looking for a box camera with focus assist-button that helps users precisely adjust the camera focus. The combination of QNAP VioStor NVR and VIVOTEK IP camera not only provides supreme megapixel processing power with a reliable RAID-protected video storage, but also enables 360-degree viewing and significantly expands field-of-views without blind spots.
