Axis introduced a new series of mini HDTV cameras designed for exceptionally discreet indoor and outdoor surveillance.
The cameras’ form factor and small size enable easy integration into very limited spaces, making them ideal for discreet or covert surveillance in stores, banks and ATMs, architectural buildings, hotels and offices.
The AXIS P12 Series comprises three models: two pinhole models (AXIS P1204 and AXIS P1214) for indoor environments, and IP66-rated model (AXIS P1214-E) suited for both indoor and outdoor applications. Each model consists of a small sensor unit with a lens and image sensor, a main unit with electronics and corresponding mounting accessories.
AXIS P12 Series models are high-performance covert cameras providing HDTV 720p video at full frame rate, providing multiple, individually configurable video streams in H.264 compression, which optimizes bandwidth and storage without compromising image quality. Motion JPEG is also supported for increased flexibility.
The cameras can be powered either over Ethernet or by external power supply; edge-storage is supported and recordings can be saved to an optional microSD/microSDHC card or a Network Attached Storage (NAS). Furthermore, the cameras provide event management capabilities with AXIS Camera Application Platform and embedded intelligent video features such as motion detection, tampering alarm and I/O ports for connecting external devices.
“These new cameras offer excessive flexibility with its unique design concept, comprising a main unit and a separate sensor unit, enabling them to be mounted up to 8 meters (26ft.) apart,” says Erik Frännlid, Axis’ Director of Product Management. “The cameras’ small size and functional design allow them to easily blend in to a variety of environments where space is constricted or a covert installation is required.”
