Axis launches 211A Network Camera

Product Profile

The AXIS 211A is a professional-level network camera from the market leader in network video.  Enhancing the visual communication by adding two-way audio capabilities to the functionality of the AXIS 211, 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 211A offers communication via microphones and speakers along with the live images over the local area network or across the Internet - no need for dedicated cable installations.  It is an ideal choice for securing offices, shops and other facilities where the two-way audio enables identification of suspicious behavior and communication of orders or requests to intruders or visitors.  Optionally combined with an impact resistant housing, it is also good solution for environments such as schools, university campuses or prisons, where the audio facilitates identification of persons and malicious behavior.

The AXIS 211A provides the best image quality in its class both at indoor and outdoor 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.
