Sweden-based surveillance equipment provider Axis Communications introduces two 360-degree fixed mini dome cameras with a five-megapixel sensor that enables detailed panoramic views of wide indoor areas.
The AXIS M3007-P and AXIS M3007-PV Network Cameras provide the ability to capture wide-video overviews to detect incidents and track the flow of people, the company says. In addition, both the AXIS M3007-P and vandal-resistant AXIS M3007-PV can be wall, or ceiling-mounted and support several viewing modes, including overview in five-megapixel resolution, as well as horizontal panoramic views and single-stream quad views that are “de-warped” inside the camera.
When mounted on the ceiling, the cameras will produce a circular bird’s eye overview of the entire room, the company says, adding that such placement would normally cause a camera to produce a “fisheye” effect. However, AXIS’ cameras produce a clearer image that can be viewed in a panoramic or quad-view format. Users can also digitally pan, tilt and zoom in on footage.
“Our partners and end-customers were especially excited about the versatile ceiling- and wall-mount options, the quad and panoramic viewing profiles for detailed video and, of course, the price of these multi-megapixel mini domes,” says Fredrik Nilsson, Axis Communications’ general manager.
The AXIS M3007-P, which has no cover over its lens, is a discreet camera that has the appearance of a smoke detector, while the AXIS M3007-PV is a vandal and dust-resistant fixed dome camera.
The cameras come focused at delivery and are fitted with a 6.6-foot network cable that supports Power over Ethernet multiple streams in H.264 and Motion JPEG can be sent simultaneously, the company says.
The products offer processing power for the installation of intelligent video
