Axis introduces 5-megapixel network cameras with precise iris control
SYDNEY, Aust., 25th March, 2010 – Axis Communications today introduces its top-of-the-line, 5-megapixel fixed network cameras with HDTV 1080p performance, precise iris control for optimal image clarity and H.264 compression. The indoor AXIS P1347 Network Camera and the outdoor-ready AXIS P1347-E model are suitable for use at airports, banks, shops, for city surveillance and any application that requires coverage of a large area or extremely high image detail. “The indoor and outdoor AXIS P1347 cameras are optimised to provide exceptional performance for demanding surveillance applications,” says Wai King Wong, Country Manager Australia and New Zealand, Axis Communications. “An AXIS P1347 camera can cover a large area due to its high resolution and can take the place of several standard cameras. With narrower viewing angles, the camera can provide extremely good detail for identification purposes and for defining distant objects. AXIS P1347/-E cameras will be part of our successful AXIS P13 Series and will provide all of the series’ unique, easy installation features and sophisticated functionalities.” The cameras’ revolutionary P-Iris enables automatic and precise control of the iris position to optimise depth of field and lens resolution for optimal image sharpness. DC-iris lenses are also supported for backward compatibility. The day and night cameras deliver 5-megapixel resolution video at 12 frames per second. They also support 16:9, HDTV 1080p full frame rate video. To help minimise bandwidth and storage needs, the cameras provide digital pan/tilt/zoom and multi-view streaming, which enables several cropped view areas to be streamed simultaneously. The cameras support multiple, individually configurable video streams in H.264 and Motion JPEG. The easy installation features of the cameras include remote back focus for fine-tuning the focus from a computer, and pixel counter, which helps verify that the pixel resolution of an object fulfills regulatory or customer requirements for identification purposes. AXIS P1347 and AXIS P1347-E support Power over Ethernet, which simplifies installation since only one cable is required for video and power. Other supported features include two-way audio, audio detection, active tampering alarm, input/output ports, and built-in SD/SDHC card slot for local storage of recordings. The IP66-rated AXIS P1347-E, which comes with a wall mount bracket, sunshield and Ethernet cable, is protected from dust, rain, snow and sun, and can operate in temperatures from -40 °C to 50°C (-40 °F to 122 °F). AXIS P1347/-E network cameras are supported by the industry’s largest base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner program as well as by AXIS Camera Station.
