Axis Communications, Chelmsford, Mass., announced 360-deg. fixed mini dome cameras with a 5 megapixel sensor that enables detailed, high-quality 360-deg. or 180-deg. panoramic views of wide indoor areas. The competitively priced AXIS M3007-PV and AXIS M3007-P Network Cameras (-P for panoramic) can provide retail stores, hotels, schools and offices with cost-effective solutions to capture wide video overviews that help detect incidents and track the flow of people.
The cameras, which are the latest additions to the AXIS M30 Series, can be mounted on ceilings for 360-deg. overviews or on walls for 180-deg. panoramic views. Both the highly discreet AXIS M3007-P and vandal-resistant AXIS M3007-PV support several viewing modes, including 360-deg. overview in 5 megapixel resolution, as well as horizontal panoramic views and single-stream quad views that are “de-warped” inside the camera for easy viewing (see video).
AXIS M3007-PV/-P cameras come focused at delivery, which shortens installation time, and are fitted with a 6.6 ft. network cable that supports Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) to eliminate the need for additional power cables and reduce installation costs. To reduce storage costs, multiple streams in H.264 and Motion JPEG can be sent simultaneously. In addition, the cameras’ built-in microSDHC card slot enables several days of recording to be stored locally on a memory card. When local storage is used together with the free AXIS Camera Companion client, users have an affordable way to remotely view and manage IP video surveillance for up to 16 cameras per site, Axis said.
