The Axis Communication M1144-L 1 MP High-Definition Network Camera is a small and compact professional surveillance device designed for day and night surveillance. This camera is ideal for use with small video surveillance systems used in boutiques, restaurants, hotels, and offices. The camera offers excellent image quality with progressive scan, providing crisp and clear images of moving objects. With its slim and compact design, the camera enables quick and easy installation, for any indoor applications where round-the-clock surveillance is required. Multiple H.264 streams, as well as Motion JPEG streams, can be provided at full frame rate, or each stream can be individually optimized for different quality requirements and bandwidth constraints.
The AXIS M1144-L Network Camera offers built-in IR-LED illumination for optimal day and night surveillance. The illumination can be adjusted to match a selected viewing angle and illuminates automatically in darkness, at an event or when requested. Power over Ethernet supplies power to the camera via the network, eliminating the need for power cables and reducing installation costs.
It features a day and night varifocal board mount lens and adjustable IR LED illumination for optimal light in selected viewing angles. With the efficient and discreet integration of IR LEDs, the cameras provide automatic illumination of a scene in complete darkness, at an event or when requested by a user. The IR LED illumination which is invisible to the human eye, it is perfect for discovering objects in a range of up to 50’ (15 m). This camera enables quick and easy installation, simple setup and a trouble-free round the-clock surveillance solution.
The camera is powered with Power over Ethernet (PoE, IEEE 802.3af standard) using a PoE-enabled switch or midspan over the same standard cable that transmits video. PoE provides multiple benefits, including reduced installation costs and flexibility in camera placement. In addition, the camera can get centralized backup power which will ensure that the cameras will continue to operate even in the event of a power failure.
The camera offers support for edge storage that enables recording video directly to a storage device such as a microSD / microSDHC card, thereby creating a more robust, reliable and flexible video surveillance system. The camera can record video locally when the central system is not available, or continuously record in parallel. Missing video clips are later retrieved and merged with the central storage, thereby ensuring seamless, uninterrupted video recordings.
The unique Axis Corridor Format allows getting a vertically oriented, portrait-shaped video stream from the camera. The video is adapted perfectly to the monitored area, maximizing image quality while eliminating bandwidth and storage waste.
The pixel counter offered in the camera 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.
