ViDiLabs Calc App

NEW !!!
We just designed a special ViDiLabs calculator for iOS.
Specifically designed for the IP CCTV industry, it calculates all variables associated with finding the best camera and lens combination for your coverage.

It advises the pixel density for Face Inspection, Identification and Recognition as per the standards.

For the first time ever in the industry, it also calculates the blurriness that moving objects produce and advises the best exposure setting, lens and distance to minimase this effect.

We have also included storage calculator and image quality indicator, based on our SD/HD test chart.

Lens 2

Lens 3




There are four test chart snap-shots from four different lenses shown on the left.

For obvious reasons there are no lens manufacturer's names mentioned.

All lenses are claimed to be mega-pixel lenses.

The same camera is used throughout and all camera settings are identical. The angle of view, compression settings and illumination are also identical.

All lenses are focused for best possible image.

Even though the exported images are reduced and cropped (for the purposes of displaying on the web site) the image quality is obviously different, the top one being the best, and lowest being the worst.

All lenses are vari-focal, mega-pixel and within a similar price range.

Lens quality may be one of the most important factors in obtaining the best possible image for your cameras.

The ViDi Labs test chart is one of the easiest and optimal methods for objective comparison and testing.
