Axis Communications has announced two new indoor modular cameras named AXIS P12 modular network cameras: AXIS P1254, featuring a mini bullet sensor unit, and AXIS P1264 with a pinhole sensor unit.
Tailored for indoor surveillance, both the new cameras offer HDTV 720p video and are touted to come in smaller main unit offering enhanced image quality in low and varying lighting conditions and improved video analytics.
The cameras also support Axis’ Zipstream compression technology for lower bandwidth and storage requirements, have a built-in microSD card slot for local storage of video recordings and are powered using Power over Ethernet.
The new AXIS P12 cameras feature a slim main unit with a bullet-style sensor unit for easy and discreet installation on walls and ceilings, and a main unit with a pinhole sensor unit for integration in machines and for extremely discreet surveillance applications. The bullet and pinhole sensor units are also sold separately under AXIS F Series for use with multi-channel main units.
“We are delivering a new level of cost-effectiveness for high-quality and highly discreet video surveillance products,” said Peter Rietz, Global Product Manager at Axis Communications. “Axis introduced the first modular network camera in 2012, and thanks to the modular concept, we have been able to develop ever smaller form factors for sensor and main units. This has culminated in the introduction of Axis’ smallest bullet-style and pinhole modular cameras.”
Additionally, enabling easy mounting on walls or ceilings and with the ability to tilt and rotate, it is ideal for use in stores, kiosks, hotels, banks and offices. The sensor unit offers a 102° horizontal field of view.
AXIS F Series offers a range of compatible main units and sensor units that are sold separately to give customers maximum flexibility to choose the components that best suit the application.
