Infrared Illumination Camera Series
Axis: New Series of Cost-Efficient HD Fixed Domes
Axis introduces the new Axis M31 Series consisting of three indoor and three outdoor models. The new compact network cameras adapt automatically to changing light conditions, with built-in infrared (IR) illumination allowing them to capture images even in complete darkness.
The compact and versatile Axis M31 Series provides excellent video quality at up to 4-megapixel resolution and adapts automatically to varying light conditions, even complete darkness. The new cameras feature a smart, flat-faced design that makes installation easy. They are ideally suited for video surveillance in locations such as retail stores, hotels and restaurants, with options for both indoor and outdoor installations.
“We see a strong market demand for small and affordable fixed domes with built-in IR illumination. This demand comes from cost-conscious customers that want video surveillance they can rely on without having to worry about changing light conditions,” says Petra Bennermark, Global Product Manager, Axis Communications. “In addition to the built-in IR illumination for mastering complete darkness, we have equipped our new AXIS M31 Series with Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology to handle scenes with strong variations in light, such as both sunlight and dark shadows.”
Axis M31 Series has a stylish and compact flat-faced design that suppresses reflections from the IR illumination. The casing is optionally available in black, and can be easily repainted for the camera to blend in with any environment. An integrated microSDXC memory card slot enables edge storage applications.
The series offers great flexibility in field of view and resolution; the indoor Axis M3106-L and outdoor Axis M3106-LVE provide a wide field of view of 130° in 4-megapixel resolution; the indoor Axis M3105-L and outdoor Axis M3105-LVE give HDTV 1080p video with a field of view of 115°; and the HDTV 720p cameras Axis M3104-L and Axis M3104-LVE provide a field of view of 80°. All models provide frame rates up to 30 fps and feature Axis’ Zipstream technology that significantly reduces bandwidth and storage requirements.
The Axis M31 Series is supported by a base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner (ADP) Program and Axis Camera Station. Third-party video analytics applications can be installed on the cameras via Axis Camera Application Platform and ONVIF support allows for easy integration into existing video surveillance systems.
Axis M31 Series is planned to be available in Q3 2016.
