Camera test: Axis M 1104
- Read Whitepaper
In cooperation with Seetec, GIT SECURITY tests current and new video cameras under standardised conditions in the test laboratory of the SeeTec Hardware Competence Center. The Hardware Competence Center was set up because the data and performance specifications of network cameras as stated by manufacturers are often measured under different conditions and are not always reliable in practice. The results provided a sound basis for planning IP video projects and help to avoid unpleasant surprises. For the testing procedure, video sequences are produced under defined lighting scenarios and are then evaluated. Here, movements in the picture as well as night and backlight situations are taken into consideration.
GIT SECURITY and Seetec did test the IP camera Axis M 1104. Let us have a look at the results:
Axis M 1104
The professional and affordable fixed network camera in the Axis M11 series is intended for a wide spectrum of video surveillance applications, e.g. in retail trade shops and banks as well as in hotels and other office buildings. The manufacturer promises pin-sharp, crisp images under good as well as poor lighting conditions. Several H.264 video streams as well as Motion JPEG video streams can be provided simultaneously either with the full range of frame rates or individually optimised for different quality requirements and bandwidth restrictions.
Thanks to its compact design and its favourable cost/performance ratio, the HD-ready (720 p) fixed camera is highly suited to the surveillance of interior rooms of branch outlets with defined lighting levels, for example in retail shops. The camera provides several image streams in H.264 and MJPEG and is powered via PoE. Using interchangeable lenses, it is possible to optimise the camera to the relevant surveillance situation in question. An onboard motion-detection component enables the mounting of simple trigger scenarios directly onto the camera.
