Axis Communications has introduced three new mini dome network cameras to the AXIS M30 Series. The new models offer HDTV image quality to capture all details, Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology to adapt to variable lighting conditions and Axis’ Zipstream technology to reduce storage and bandwidth requirements without sacrificing important image details.
The factory-focused cameras can be mounted on walls or ceilings and easily be leveled and directed in any direction using a 3-axis camera angle adjustment.
“Our new AXIS M30 cameras offer superb video quality in indoor environments at a very attractive price point. This makes them ideally suited for small and medium-sized business installations where many cameras are needed to cover the whole area without blind spots,” says Erik Frännlid, Director of Product Management, Axis Communications. “The cameras are easy to install and come factory-focused. With their compact dimensions they can be mounted very discreetly. Customers get a high quality product that has undergone rigorous testing and offers great reliability. We underline this with three years warranty.”
AXIS M3044-V provides HDTV 720p video at up to 30 fps. AXIS M3045-V provides HDTV 1080p video at 30 fps and offers HDMI support that enables live streaming to an HDTV monitor for public viewing. AXIS M3046-V provides 4MP resolution at up to 30 fps and offers HDMI support as well. AXIS M3046-V can also be used as an alternative to a camera with varifocal lens – its 4MP resolution and digital PTZ capability enable sharp, cropped out views in HDTV 1080p, for example, with a horizontal field of view between 95° and 125°.
The new cameras in the AXIS M30 Series provide multiple, individually configurable H.264 and Motion JPEG video streams. They offer video motion detection and active tampering alarm as well as support for third party video analytics applications such as people counting. Axis’ Corridor Format makes full use of the sensor when monitoring narrow areas such as staircases, hallways or aisles by providing vertically oriented video streams. The cameras have an Ethernet connector for network connectivity as well as power (PoE) and an integrated MicroSD/microSDHC memory card slot for edge storage applications.
AXIS M3044-V, AXIS M3045-V and AXIS M3046-V come with a three-year warranty. This will be the new standard for all Axis M-line products and a significant increase to the previous one-year warranty.
AXIS M30 cameras are supported by the industry’s largest base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner (ADP) Program, and AXIS Camera Station. The cameras also include support for AXIS Camera Application Platform and ONVIF for easy system integration.
The new cameras in the AXIS M30 Series are planned to be available in April, 2016 through Axis distribution channels at suggested retail prices starting from USD 199.
