Axis Communications Inc., a producer of network video products, has enhanced its AXIS P13 Series cameras so that they now offer enhanced processing performance and the latest imaging technology, including color-at-night “Lightfinder.”
The new AXIS P13 Network Cameras, available in indoor and outdoor-ready models, are suitable for numerous applications, including low light conditions, and will be ideal for city surveillance, transportation, retail, education, banking and industrial surveillance installations, the company says.
The new AXIS P13 Series models are also equipped with a serial port for a pan/tilt head and other accessories, with edge storage support featuring a microSD/MicroSDHC slot, Axis Communications says.
The AXIS P1354 and the equivalent outdoor-ready AXIS P1354-E Network Cameras provide high-definition television (HDTV) 720p resolution based on a top-quality 1/3-inch image sensor, while the AXIS P1353 and the outdoor-ready AXIS P1353-E cameras provide super video graphics array (SVGA) resolution. The new AXIS P13 Series models are also equipped with a serial port for a pan/tilt head and other accessories, with edge storage support featuring a microSD/MicroSDHC slot, the company says.
“Lightfinder, which enables color, detailed video in the lowest of light, even down to subtle moonlight illuminating a scene, was a real eye opener for the industry when we first launched the technology last year in the award-winning AXIS Q1602 Network Camera,” said Fredrik Nilsson, Axis Communications’ general manager.
“We’ve since brought the technology to the popular AXIS P33 Series fixed domes, and today significantly improve the image quality of the AXIS P13 Series in low lighting conditions,” Nilsson said. “This couldn’t be done without the enhanced processing power found inside these new cameras, which is also a big benefit for running intelligent video analytics,” he adds.
The AXIS P13 Series Network Cameras are quick and easy to install with remote zoom and focus for fine tuning, and come equipped with a pixel counter to ensure the camera’s angle of view is optimized at the required resolution for the area to be monitored, according to the company.
