Axis Communications, the market leader in network video surveillance, recently launches the compact and competitively priced AXIS M3027-PVE, a 5-megapixel fixed dome that offers a 360° or 180° overview of wide areas. The IK10 vandal resistant, day/night network camera is designed for indoor as well as outdoor use. Examples of suitable installations are inside or outside hotels, boutiques, restaurants and offices.
“With the introduction of AXIS M3027-PVE, we further strengthen our line-up of discreet and affordably priced fixed domes by adding a 360° / 180° panoramic outdoor-ready video surveillance solution. It offers price-sensitive market segments the option of using just one camera to get the big picture,” says Erik Frännlid, Director of Product Management, Axis Communications. “The camera also has substantial capacity for intelligent video applications and supports a wide range of video management software including the complimentary AXIS Camera Companion.”
AXIS M3027-PVE, which is the latest addition to the line-up of outdoor-ready AXIS M30-VE cameras, can be mounted on ceilings, soffits or under porches for a 360° overview and on walls for a 180° view. The camera provides de-warped views such as panorama, double panorama and quad views, as well as view area modes where users can digitally pan, tilt and zoom in on areas of interest. Multiple streams in H.264 and Motion JPEG can be sent simultaneously. AXIS M3027-PVE offers I/O ports for connection to external devices.
All cameras in the AXIS M30 Series come focused at delivery, which means short installation time. They support Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af), which eliminates the need for power cables and reduces installation costs.
AXIS M3027-PVE offers considerable support for the installation of intelligent video applications through AXIS Camera Application Platform. Further, the camera’s built-in microSDHC card slot enables several days of recording to be stored locally on a memory card. Using local storage together with the complimentary AXIS Camera Companion video management software provides users with an easy solution to remotely view and manage video from up to 16 cameras per site.
AXIS M3027- PVE is also supported by other video management software including AXIS Camera Station, hosted video offerings and third-party applications through Axis’ Application Development Partner program. Client side de-warping of the 360º overview is supported by Axis’ video management software and also by some partners. AXIS M3027-PVE is ONVIF Profile S conformant.
