Home Business IT Security Axis introduces two-lens surveillance camera with 360-degree view

A new surveillance camera from Axis can provide a 360-degree view of a site, or zoom in on the action.

Axis' latest HDTV-quality surveillance camera sports two lenses to maintain image quality when zooming in.

The company claims the P5544's 18x zoom with autofocus provides detail comparable to a 36x zoom, 4CIF-resolution camera with the advantage of a 16:9 field of view.

The camera can provide a 360-degree view, or zoom in for a closer look.

Other features include 720p video, support for simultaneous H.264 and Motion JPEG steams, day and night operation, two-way audio with audio detection, and provision for external sensors and relays.

"Axis P5544 provides a complete 360-degree field of view over a 950 square metre (10,000 sq ft) area - about the size of three tennis courts - and can pan, tilt and zoom in 18 times to identify people some 150 m (490 ft) away,' says country manager Wai King Wong. "High image quality is maintained at all times, whether in 360-degree overview mode or in zoomed-in views. AXIS P5544 provides security personnel and business owners with superb remote monitoring capabilities."
