This is a software tool that helps design CCTV cameras and provides all the design parameters necessary.
Advanced CCTV Lens is a calculator for CCTV designers. Standard functions of lens of the field-of-view size depending on the distance and the lens focal length are offered. The tool also has some additional features. The interface offered is graphical and is intuitive. You will be able to set up the work area scenario easily with the interface and set up precise measurements. You can calculate the distance from the camera to which the spatial resolution or the pixel density criteria are satisfied. The default values of these criteria correspond to the spatial resolution of the five areas according to the CCTV Operational Requirements Manual 2009 for related operation and control. Selection of the best resolution for specific uses like detection, observation, recognition or identification could be done.
Calculations of spatial resolution as well as the field of view size at any distance from the camera is part of this. The tool uses automatically scalable photos to evaluate details of various objects at different distances from the camera. Some built in photos include models of people and a car with license plate. This library can be built up with your own images that fit your area of use. You could model images from megapixel cameras, up to hundreds of megapixels. Projections of field of view are used to generate the drawing on the location plan. The projections are calculated in 3D coordinates based on the camera height and inclination. This is a very good product and if you are looking for a tool like this, this could be it.
