New Axis cameras feature wide dynamic range

Axis has released a pair of surveillance cameras designed to cope with wide variations in light.

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 new fixed domes provide clear images in demanding light conditions, by applying WDR 'dynamic capture' of scenes with great variation in light, and Lightfinder technology to handle extreme low light scenarios."

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.

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to your files and systems until you pay a ransom.

The first example of ransomware happened on September 5, 2013, when Cryptolocker was unleashed.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
