  • 1Description
The Axis Communications P7216 Surveillance Kit consists of the P7216 16-Channel Video Encoder and Camera Station Software with 16-base license. The encoder can deliver two simultaneous video streams, one in H.264 and another in MJPEG, at full frame rate in resolutions up to D1. It can simplify migration to network video without upgrading existing camera systems. The video encoder offers advanced network capabilities with efficient video performance and remarkable audio quality.

The video encoder supports all types of analog cameras including PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) and PTZ domes. It features both RS-422 and RS-485 for controlling analog PTZ cameras. Configurable inputs/outputs can be connected to external relays and sensors for activating lights, locking/unlocking doors, etc. It offers intelligent video capabilities such as video motion detection, active tampering alarm, and two-way audio with audio detection.

The included Camera Station Software meets the need for efficient surveillance of small to mid-sized installations, such as retail shops, hotels, schools, and manufacturing sites. The software client can be installed on any computer, enabling remote viewing and control from anywhere on the corporate network or the Internet.

An intuitive user interface with flexible live-view layout, site maps, powerful event configuration, efficient alarm management and responsive PTZ control makes it possible to effectively manage the cameras in the system. Quick investigation and retrieval of evidence for safe and secure export is enabled by intuitive timeline visualization and an efficient video search. By defining an area of interest you can quickly search through vast amounts of HD recordings.
