AXIS 210A network camera with a CCD sensor

Product Profile

The AXIS 210A is a professional-level network camera with built in Power over Ethernet support greatly simplifies installation and maintenance.  Further enhancing communication by adding two-way audio capabilities to the AXIS 210, it is suitable for surveillance and remote monitoring applications.  Connecting directly to IP networks, the built-in Web server, open application interface and sophisticated networking functions, such as the option to power the camera over the Ethernet, greatly simplify installation and systems integration.

The AXIS 210A provides the best image quality in its class at indoor lighting conditions, giving full frame rate even at VGA resolution, thanks to the progressive scan CCD sensor and powerful real time image processing hardware.  Furthermore, its unique combination of simultaneous Motion JPEG and advanced MPEG-4 streams allows systems to be optimized both for image quality and bandwidth efficiency.  More functions include video motion detection, pre- and post-alarm buffers, several notification options, privacy masking and I/O for connecting external devices such as door sensors and relays to activate light or close doors.
