Axis strengthens camera lineup with new outdoor-ready HDTV PTZ domes

Published by Dan on May 21, 2010 4:08 PM

Axis recently introduced a new series of high-performance, outdoor-ready PTZ dome cameras, including two HDTV models. These rugged network cameras are geared towards demanding applications such as city surveillance, and video security for airports, harbors, and stadiums. With the inclusion of HDTV capabilities, the new Axis line allows for more detailed monitoring in full frame rate.

The new outdoor-ready Axis lineup includes the high-speed Axis Q6034-E PTZ Dome with HDTV 720p, the Axis P5534-E PTZ Dome, which also offers HDTV 720p, and the Axis P5532-E PTZ Dome with D1 resolution.

The HDTV models support the SMPTE 296M standard regarding resolution, full frame rate, HDTV color fidelity, and 16:9 format. The wide format allows for a larger field of view than standard cameras provide. These models also allow users to zoom in on scenes without compromising image quality and detail.

All three cameras provide automatic day/night functionality, both H.264 and Motion JPEG video compression, PoE, and a built-in SD/SDHC memory card slot. They're also loaded with intelligent functionality. The Axis P5532-E, for instance, includes an Advanced Gatekeeper function that allows the camera to automatically zero in on a pre-defined area when motion is detected, and then return to a home position after a set period of time. The Axis Q6034-E offers a similar Active Gatekeeper function with the added ability to automatically track the detected object.

This fresh batch of Axis outdoor PTZ domes will be available in July 2010.
