The M3011 Ultra-Discreet Indoor Fixed Network Camera from Axis Communications is specifically designed to be used in surveillance areas that require discreet monitoring, such as retail stores, banks, and office buildings. Featuring a 1/4" RGB CMOS sensor and a 3mm fixed iris lens, the camera delivers clear and crisp images in VGA resolution. Progressive scan technology allows smooth image capture for scenes with fast moving objects. With a minimum illumination of 1 lux, the camera is suitable for low light surveillance.

The entire unit is 3.6" (9 cm) wide and protrudes only 1.2" (3 cm) from the ceiling, making the presence of the camera seem unobtrusive. To suit your décor, the cover ring of the unit is available in a range of colors.

For video compression, the M3011 Network Camera transmits multiple streams in H.264 and MJPEG video formats at either full frame rates or individually optimized for different quality needs and bandwidth constraints. In addition, the camera also supports MPEG-4 Part 2 for backward compatibility.

A unique feature of this camera is its pixel counter function, which calculates the number of pixels contained in a given part of the image, for example a person's face. This is an important feature for satisfying certain jurisdictions requiring proof of resolution before an image can be submitted for evidence. In addition, backlight compensation adjusts video gain to correct the exposure when the object is in front of a bright light source. The white balance feature adjusts the red, green, and blue colors taking a standard white reference to get clear images. Furthermore, the Indoor Camera includes features such as privacy masking, text and image overlay, exposure and control.

With its Power over Ethernet (PoE) port, this camera receives power via the Ethernet cable, making it easier to install the camera most anywhere and not only near a power supply. Additionally, this eliminates the need for power cables and reducing installation costs.

Excellent Image Quality with Progressive Scan

1/4" RGB CMOS sensor delivers clear and crisp images in a VGA resolution
Progressive scan technology delivers blur-free images at 30 fps
Minimum illumination of 1 lux
Backlight compensation adjusts video gain to correct the exposure when the object is in front of a bright light source
White balance feature adjusts the red, green, and blue colors taking a standard white reference to get clear images
Multiple H.264 and Motion JPEG streams can be provided either in full frame rate or individually optimized for different quality needs and bandwidth constraints
MPEG-4 Part 2 lends augmented flexibility and utility to the camera

Pixel Counter Feature

Pixel counter allows the installer to easily verify that the camera installation fulfills any regulatory or specific customer requirements, for example calculating the pixel resolution of the face of a person passing a doorway monitored by the camera

Power over Ethernet

Built-in 802.3af compliant PoE port allows the camera to receive power directly from its network interface, making installation possible without the need for additional wiring and cables

Intelligent Features

Video motion detection feature compares the current frame with a pre-determined standard frame to accurately trigger an alarm if motion is detected
On motion detection, pre-/post-alarm images are stored in a 16 MB video buffer
API (Application Program Interface) supports an open API for software integration, including the ONVIF specification and the VAPIX and Axis Camera Application Platform from Axis Communications


Password Protection restricts access to unauthorized persons
IP Filtering restricts access to one or more user groups; user groups can be created with an IP address range being defined for each group
Digest Authentication uses a system where the network server authenticates a user request through a domain controller and then grants access to authorized users only
User Access Log - maintains a log of all the users that were granted access to the camera image data on the network
HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol over SSL) protects streaming data transmission across the network
Image Sensor 1/4" progressive scan RGB CMOS in VGA Resolution

Resolution 640 x 480 to 160 x 120
Frame Rate H.264, Motion JPEG, and MPEG-4 Part 2: 30 fps in all resolutions
Video Streaming Controllable frame rate and bandwidth

Multi-stream H.264, Motion JPEG and MPEG-4 Part 2

H.264/MPEG-4 Part 2: 1 stream in full frame rate and resolution, Motion JPEG: 2 individually configured streams in full frame rate and resolution, more streams in either compression if identical or limited in frame rate/resolution

VBR/CBR H.264 & MPEG-4 Part 2
Image Settings Compression, color, brightness, sharpness, contrast, white balance, exposure control, exposure zones, backlight compensation, fine tuning of behavior at low light, rotation, text and image overlay, privacy mask
