The Axis Communications AXIS M3004-V Surveillance Kit consists of 4 AXIS M3004-V Mini-Dome Network Cameras (HDTV 720p) and 1 AXIS Camera Companion free software client.
The palm-sized AXIS M3004-V Network Camera is vandal and dust resistant and has a 3-axis camera angle adjustment for flexible installation. The 3-axis camera angle adjustment makes it easy to adjust the camera’s direction, level the image, and get vertically oriented video streams when used in Axis’ Corridor Format.
This M30 camera supports AXIS Camera Application Platform for intelligent video applications such as people counting. It even offers a convenient video management solution via its built-in memory card slot for edge storage and support for software such as the complimentary AXIS Camera Companion. Simplifying installation, this network camera comes with a 6.6’ (2m) network cable and is powered using PoE (IEEE 802.3af).
The AXIS M3004-V Camera also supports Corridor Format for vertically oriented video streams that maximize coverage of areas such as corridors, hallways, or aisles. Corridor Format is achieved when the 3-axis camera angle adjustment is used together with the camera interface’s ability to rotate the image. The format optimizes the coverage of areas such as aisles, hallways, and corridors, maximizing image quality while eliminating bandwidth and storage waste. The camera comes focused at delivery.
The Axis Camera Companion software is a video surveillance solution for small systems from 1 to 16 cameras, and is designed for use in retail stores, offices, and hotels. With the AXIS Camera Companion software, all video is recorded on SD cards (sold separately) in the camera, and no DVR or server is necessary. This makes each camera in this kit a smart and independent video recording device.
This software offers HDTV quality for reliable identification of people and incidents. Video clips or snapshots can be easily exported. Internet access is easy to set up, and with support for Apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android-supporting devices, this software lets the user view videos at any time and from anywhere. The cameras in an AXIS Camera Companion system can record video regardless of the network status.
The free PC client is only needed during installation. For viewing live or recorded video or exporting video after an incident, either the client or a smartphone application can be used.
AXIS Camera Companion is a scalable network video solution that protects the customer’s investment. Adding new cameras to the system is easy, and existing analog cameras can be integrated using Axis video encoders. If the user wants to step up to another IP solution in the future, the Axis cameras, encoders, and network equipment can be reused.
