LAS VEGAS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--ISC West 2010--Booth #18051--Axis Communications, the
global leader in the network video market, today introduces at ISC West top-of-the-line, 5-megapixel fixed network
cameras which also include HDTV 1080p performance, precise iris control (P-Iris) for optimal image clarity and
H.264 compression. The indoor AXIS P1347 Network Camera and the outdoor-ready AXIS P1347-E Network
Camera are suitable for installations that require extremely high image detail or coverage of a large area, such as
airports, banks, retail stores and city surveillance.
The cameras’ revolutionary P-Iris enables automatic and precise control of the iris position to optimize both depth of
field and lens resolution for maximum image sharpness. The true day and night cameras deliver 5-megapixel
resolution video at 12 frames per second. For additional versatility, 16:9, HDTV 1080p full frame rate video is also
supported so security professionals can choose the resolution that best suits the specific surveillance application.
“Megapixel and HDTV technology is changing the way surveillance managers use video for forensic evidence and
business operations,” said Fredrik Nilsson, general manager, Axis Communications Inc. “To reach the full benefit of
a 5-megapixel camera, an advanced lens technology like P-Iris is required for providing extremely good images both
for identification and defining distant objects in all light conditions.”
To help minimize bandwidth and storage needs, the cameras provide digital pan/tilt/zoom and multi-view streaming,
which enables several cropped view areas to be streamed simultaneously. These multiple, individually configurable
video streams leverage H.264 and Motion JPEG compression.
