|The AXIS P5415-E innovative design and shape makes the camera installation reliable and cost-effective
Axis Communications, the world leader in network video, has received the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for the innovative design and shape of its AXIS P5415-E PTZ Dome Network Camera enabling it to become at one with a wall surface and to blend in with a building. The camera can be installed directly on a wall surface without the need for a mounting arm. A built-in bracket eliminates the need for a separate mounting accessory and makes installation easier and quicker while providing significant cost savings.
The AXIS P5415-E PTZ Dome Network Camera met the Red Dot Design Award jury’s criteria of degree of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics, durability, symbolic and emotional content, product periphery, self-explanatory quality and ecological compatibility. Some 4.815 products were submitted in 23 main categories and have been evaluated by the international jury comprising 40 renowned designers. Following today’s award announcement, the AXIS P5415-E will be put on display in the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany.
The AXIS P5415-E is mounted directly on a wall surface without a need for a traditional mounting arm. This innovative design allows the camera to be at one with a building and blend in seamlessly with the environment.
“The AXIS P5415-E offers an innovative design and shape that not only appeals to architects and designers, but also makes the camera installation reliable and cost-effective,” says Erik Frännlid, Director of Product Management, Axis Communications. “This prestigious design award win underlines the innovation power of Axis Communications as we strive to provide smarter and safer solutions to our customers.”
The camera’s integrated sunshield can be removed and repainted to match the colour of the mounting surface. The inner values of the AXIS P5415-E boast a powerful 18x optical zoom and full HDTV 1080p resolution for detailed video surveillance. The camera’s pan/tilt system is extremely durable and highly efficient since there are no mechanical parts such as belts or gears. A secure and user-friendly web interface allows for convenient remote configuration of the AXIS P5415-E. Suitable for operation under temperatures ranging from -20°C to +50°C, the camera supports Power over Ethernet (PoE) removing the need for extra cabling.
With its direct drive pan/tilt system, the AXIS P5415–E is a reliable, low-maintenance PTZ Dome network camera. Its very light sensitive image sensor enables it to provide high quality video in low light situations. At night, its day/night functionality allows it to make use of infrared light from available light sources to produce high quality black and white video.
