The new entry-level IP camera models in Axis Communications’ P55 Series offer HDTV image quality, improved light sensitivity and increased video analytics performance. Following the product launches of Axis P56, Axis Q61 and Axis V59 PTZ dome network cameras earlier this year, the company has now updated its entire mid-range and high-end portfolio of pan, tilt and zoom network cameras.
Axis P5514 and Axis P5515 are indoor cameras suitable for monitoring auditoriums, shopping centres and hotel reception areas. Axis P5514-E and Axis P5515-E are outdoor versions, perfect for the surveillance of small outdoor areas such as school courtyards and car parks.
“Axis P55 has been appreciated by customers for its dependability at an attractive price point,” said Erik Frännlid, the company’s director of product management. “The new camera models afford enhanced performance while still being offered at pretty aggressive prices. Together with our recent product launches – the AxisQ61 Series for mission-critical applications, Axis P56 Series for demanding mid-range installations and the Axis V59 Series for live streaming and web casting – they demonstrate our commitment to providing end users with the market’s widest range of PTZ cameras.”
Axis P5514 is ideal for indoor video surveillance applications such as small industries, shopping centres and hotel receptions. It’s an HDTV 720p camera with 12x optical zoom and with IP51 protection against dust ingress.
The Axis P5515 model offers the same zoom performance and dust protection but also features HDTV 1080p resolution for even more image detail.
Axis P5514-E is an IP66-protected outdoor camera that’s resistant to water, wind and snow. Its HDTV 720p resolution and 12x zoom makes it perfect for monitoring small outdoor areas such as school courtyards, car parks and car dealerships.
The HDTV 1080p version, designated Axis P5515-E, offers a higher resolution as well as 12x zoom and IP66 protection, in turn making it resilient against conditions experienced within tough environments.
Compared to previous generations of the cameras, the new Axis Communications P55 network camera models provide increased analytics performance. Built-in intelligent functionalities include audio detection and Advanced Gatekeeper, allowing the cameras to detect an object in a specified area and zoom in on it.
Given their support for Axis Communications’ Camera Application Platform, other video analytics applications may be easily downloaded to the cameras.
