Axis Communications Releases Pair of Multi-Sensor Panoramic Cameras
The company unveils the 8-megapixel AXIS P3707-PE and 15-megapixel AXIS Q3708-PVE.
CHELMSFORD, Mass. — Axis Communications introduces two multi-sensor panoramic cameras. The 8-megapixel AXIS P3707-PE, with four varifocal cameras heads, enables 360° coverage or a combination of overview and zoomed-in views in four different directions. The 15-megapixel AXIS Q3708-PVE features three image sensors for a 180° surveillance and has wide dynamic range and forensic capture technology and low light capabilities.
Both cameras support Axis’ Zipstream technology for what is said to be reduced bandwidth and storage requirements.
According to Axis, the cameras are best suited for video surveillance in airport terminals, railway stations, city surveillance, perimeter security for critical infrastructure, school campuses and shopping malls. The cameras can also be used for both indoor and outdoor surveillance.
AXIS P3707-PE is comprised of four camera heads that can be repositioned along a circular track to point in the desired viewing direction. Each camera head can be individually tilted and adjusted to provide a 108Â° to 54Â° horizontal field of view for either wide or zoomed-in views. The camera heads can be rotated to support Axis’ Corridor Format for optimal coverage of vertically oriented scenes, the company says. A clear dome offers perfect L values and allows for undistorted views in all directions. AXIS P3707-PE supports individually configurable video streams for each camera head, as well as quad-view streaming, enabling 1080p resolution videos at 12.5/15 frames per second and 720p videos at full frame rate.
AXIS Q3708-PVE has wide dynamic range-forensic capture technology, low light capabilities and offers day and night functionality. AXIS Q3708-PVE provides 11-megapixel resolution at 30 frames per second, or 15-megapixel resolution at 20 frames per second.
