Axis Communications P5522-E overview

  • 1Description

The Axis Communications P5522-E Compact PTZ Outdoor Dome Network Camera measures 7.5" (19 cm) making it suitable for outdoor areas that require discreet monitoring, such as parking lots. Equipped with a 1/4" CCD sensor, the camera delivers excellent image quality at resolutions up to 704 x 480. A minimum illumination of 1 lux (color) and 0.3 lux (B&W) makes the camera suitable for low light surveillance.

Defined by its Day & Night ICR (infrared cut filter removal) function, the camera switches between color and B&W as per changes in ambient lighting ensuring accurate color reproduction in daylight and enhanced B&W images at night. Wide Dynamic Range technology compensates for commonly faced issues such as high-contrast light, back light, glare, and light-reflective environments by adjusting the light and restoring detail to deliver identifiable images, i.e., objects in both dark and light areas of a scene to be visible.

The PTZ functions of this camera enables you to remotely move the camera in a 360° pan via auto-flip for overview surveillance, a 180° tilt and a 18x optical zoom with autofocus for detailed viewing. Additionally, guard tours are enabled through which the camera automatically goes to different preset positions (both zoomed in and out) to check on different areas of a scene. The Advanced Gatekeeper function enables automatically moves the camera to a preset position when motion is detected in a pre-defined area. For example, in a parking lot, when motion is detected, the camera zooms in to capture a license plate and returns to the default position after a set amount of time has gone by.

For video compression, the P5522-E Network Camera transmits multiple streams in H.264 and MJPEG video formats at full frame rates in 4CIF resolution or individually optimized for different quality needs and bandwidth constraints. Additionally, it has an SD slot for on-board storage of the recorded footage.

Intelligent video capabilities include video motion detection, audio detection, and active tampering alarm. The camera supports an open API (Application Programming Interface) for software integration, including the ONVIF specification for interoperability between network video products. With its Power over Ethernet (PoE) port, this camera receives power and video/audio and PTZ controls via a PoE midspan, making it easier to install the camera most anywhere and not only near a power supply; thereby, eliminating the need for power cables and reducing installation costs. For added flexibility, the camera comes with both clear and smoked covers to use as per your requirement.

Because the camera housing is IP66- and NEMA 4X-rated, the camera is protected against dust, rain, snow, ice, and corrosion and no additional enclosures are required. The PTZ Dome Camera can operate in adverse temperatures ranging from -4 to 122°F (-20 to 50°C).

Excellent Image Quality

1/4" CCD image sensor delivers clear and crisp images at resolutions up to 704 x 480
Minimum illumination of 1 lux in color and 0.3 lux in B&W modes
Automatic IR cut filter for switching between color and B&W modes
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
Wide Dynamic Range technology corrects the lighting of a scene delivering a true-to-life representation of the original scene

Optimized Use of Bandwidth and Storage

Multiple H.264 and MPEG streams can be provided simultaneously either in full frame rate or individually optimized for different quality needs and bandwidth constraints
SD/SDHC card slot for on-board storage for recording images or small video clips
Built-in 802.3af compliant PoE allows the camera to receive power directly from its network interface, without the need for additional wiring and cables


IP66- and NEMA 4X-rated casing protects the camera from dust, rain, snow, ice, and corrosion

Intelligent Features

PTZ - 360° pan via auto-flip, 180° tilt, 18x optical zoom and 12x digital zoom with 100 preset position
Autofocus enables clear and focused footage even when PTZ functions are performed on the camera
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 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
