Axis new 360° fixed cameras give price-sensitive market segments the option of using just one camera to get the big picture, with great details, at an affordable price, said Baraa Al Akkad, Regional Sales Manager, Middle East, Axis Communications. The cameras also have substantial capacity for intelligent video applications and support a range of video management software including the complimentary AXIS Camera Companion.”
The cameras, which are the latest additions to the AXIS M30 Series, can be mounted on ceilings for 360° overviews or on walls for 180° panoramic views. Both AXIS M3007-PV and AXIS M3007-P support several viewing modes, including 360° overview in 5 megapixel resolution, as well as horizontal panoramic views and quad views that have been dewarped for easy viewing. The quad view mode is suitable, for instance, when the camera is positioned at an intersection of corridors. The cameras also provide view area modes that allow users to digitally pan, tilt and zoom in on areas of interest. Multiple streams in H.264 and Motion JPEG can be sent simultaneously.
AXIS M3007-PV as with the recently announced AXIS M3006-V and the launched AXIS M3004-V and AXIS M3005-V cameras in the series is a vandal and dust-resistant fixed dome camera. AXIS M3007-P, which has a different outer shell with no cover over its lens, is an extremely discreet camera that can be mistaken for a smoke detector.
AXIS M3007-PV/-P cameras come focused at delivery, which shortens the installation time. They are also fitted with a 2 m (6.6 ft.) network cable and support Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af), which eliminates the need for power cables and reduces installation costs.
AXIS M3007-PV/-P offers considerable support for the installation of intelligent video applications through the AXIS Camera Application Platform. 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, users have an easy way to remotely view and manage video from up to 16 cameras per site.
AXIS M3007-PV/-P cameras are also supported by other video management software including
AXIS Camera Station and third-party applications through Axis’ Application Development Partner program. In addition, the cameras support hosted video and ONVIF for easy camera system integration.
