Axis communications, a world leading manufacturer of network security cameras and other surveillance solutions, have announced the launch of a new multidirectional, high image resolution camera.
Named the Axis P3717-PLE Network Camera, the new security solution allows for flexible positioning of four varifocal camera heads, thus offering a panoramic 360-degree overview or a combination of overviews in zoomed in detail.
The new camera is fitted with an integrated weather shield to make it just as suitable for outdoor as for indoor use, and boasts IR illumination with individually controllable LEDs to help capture clear images even in low light or darkness.
Suggested as an ideal solution for any environment form a shopping centre to a warehouse or a hallway intersection to an outer corner of a premises, the Axis P3717-PLE also enables a lower overall cost for cabling and installation services.
What’s more, it includes a redundancy system between the SD card and server should the connection with the server fail. All of those features and more helped the new camera to win Video Surveillance Camera of the Year at the first inaugural Intersec Awards in Dubai and led to effusive praise from Axis regional manager, Ettiene Van Der Watt;
‘In comparison to the single sensor fisheye cameras, these multidirectional cameras do not spend resolution on irrelevant areas or suffer from optical distortion. It’s an honour for our team to receive such a prestigious award and the accolades from the industry, all of which are a testimony to our commitment to innovation.’
