The P8514W Eye-Level Covert Network Camera (White) from Axis Communications is specifically designed for quick installation at an optimized height of 5.2' (160 cm). The camera comes pre-installed inside a pipe with a 4.3' (1.3 m) pre-mounted Ethernet cable and female connector for transmission of power and data. The height indicator decal on the pipe helps hide the camera pinhole, making the camera invisible to the eye and safe from any tampering attempts. Because the Covert Camera is mounted at eye-level, it captures sharp and identifiable images of a person’s face even if they are wearing a hood or baseball cap. The Eye-level Covert Camera makes it an ideal surveillance solution for indoor applications such as retail, healthcare, and banking segments.

Featuring a 1/4" progressive scan RGB CMOS sensor, the camera delivers crisp and clear images at 30 fps at 720p HDTV resolutions up to 1280 x 800. For video compression, the Network Camera transmits multiple streams in an H.264 and MJPEG video formats at full frame rates or individually optimized for different quality needs and bandwidth constraints. Minimum illumination of 1 lux at f/1.8 ensures clear images in bright light and low light conditions. Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) function is used to correct extreme lighting environments marked by high-contrast and harsh backlit scenes. Backlight compensation increases the brightness of the subjects in the frame, giving you true-to-life video footage

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.

The White P8514W Network Camera easily blends in with your décor and can operate in environments with a temperature range of 32 to 122°F (0 to 50°C).
