Axis Announces Indoor Vandal-Resistant PTZ Domes for Overview Surveillance of Public Areas
CHELMSFORD, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Communications, the market leader in network video, today announces
indoor, vandal-resistant, ceiling-mounted pan/tilt/zoom dome cameras.
AXIS M50-V PTZ Dome Network Cameras are affordably priced for remote and
discreet monitoring of indoor areas, such as schools, train stations,
boarding areas and warehouses. The discreet and affordable solution
makes it possible to improve security and effectively manage one or more
locations with remote monitoring capabilities.
The compact, lightweight and easy-to-install AXIS M50-V features a
robust casing that provides protection against vandalism. The IP66- and
IK10-rated cameras are resistant to water, dust and vandalism (see
video). Additionally, the network cable is protected in the ceiling
mount to enhance tamper protection. Both models provide a number of
advantages and benefits for monitoring and securing public areas,
including automatic alerts for motion detection, camera tampering or
when someone enters a restricted area.
"AXIS M50-V cameras combine affordability and functionality in a
discreet, vandal-resistant PTZ," said Fredrik Nilsson, general manager,
Axis (News - Alert) Communications Inc. "The ability to offer these features in one
camera will be instrumental in helping to secure environments, like
those in retail and transportation, that may often face changing
layouts, vandalism or environmental factors such as dust and water,
while still benefiting from flexible, overview surveillance."
AXIS M5013-V and AXIS M5014-V add high-quality and vandal-resistant
versions to the compact and affordable AXIS
M50 Series. Like the entire AXIS M50 Series, AXIS M50-V features
either SVGA or HDTV-standard 720p resolution. The vandal-resistant PTZ
domes can also deliver multiple, individually configurable H.264 and
Motion JPEG video streams simultaneously.
Further features of the AXIS M50-V include:
AXIS M5013-V provides full frame rate SVGA 800x600 pixel resolution,
while AXIS M5014-V delivers 720p HDTV video with 1280x720 pixel
resolution, progressive scan, HDTV color fidelity, full frame rate and
a 16:9 format.
The cameras are powered using Power over Ethernet (PoE IEEE (News - Alert) 802.3af),
which simplifies installation since a standard network cable will
carry power, video and PTZ controls.
Built-in memory card slot for optional local storage.
The camera can easily be integrated with existing security systems and
with other products.
The camera is supported by the industry's largest base of video
management software through Axis' Application
Development Partner Program and AXIS
Camera Station. The camera also includes support for AXIS
Camera Application Platform, AXIS
Video Hosting System and ONVIF
for easy camera system integration and for application developers to
provide the camera with intelligent capabilities. AXIS M50-V also
Camera Companion for a small system solution.
AXIS M5013-V and AXIS M5014-V are planned to be available in Q2 2013 for
$599 and $699 MSRP respectively through Axis' standard distribution
channels. For photos and other resources, please visit: www.axis.com/corporate/press/press_material.htm key=m5014v.
