Areas near windows, doors and tunnel mouths can be challenging for surveillance cameras - if adjusted for the brightly lit areas, anything in the shadows can be almost invisible.
So Axis Communications has introduced the P3384 fixed dome network camera with wide dynamic range (WDR).
"After the successful introduction of Axis Q1604, the first of Axis' cameras incorporating wide dynamic range with 'dynamic capture', we are now introducing our first fixed domes with the same level of WDR," says Wai King Wong, country manager, Australia and New Zealand.
The P3384 comes in two variants: the -V ($960) for indoor use and the -VE ($1115) for outdoor deployment.
Both have vandal-resistant casings, 720p resolution, remote focussing and remote zoom.
The use of Power over Ethernet allows single-cable installation.
This video demonstrates the benefits of WDR.
