Axis Communications P1357 overview

  • 1Description

The P1357 Barebone Indoor Network Camera (10 Pack) from Axis Communications comprises of indoor-ready fixed cameras that deliver good image quality with H.264 compression and are ideal for high- performance surveillance in any environment. They also deliver multiple H.264 and Motion JPEG video streams. Moreover, these P1357 cameras support PoE (Power over Ethernet), thereby enabling easy installation.

Each network camera offers 2592 x 1944 resolution, provides WDR (Wide Dynamic Range), and day and night functionality for image clarity in daylight and dark conditions. They also come with remote back focus function that enables the focus to be fine-tuned from a computer. It also offers digital pan / tilt / zoom, and provides multi-view streaming. The cameras are equipped with a serial port for communication with auxiliary equipment such as pan / tilt head in order to remotely change the camera direction.

Excellent, Fixed Camera for Video Surveillance

These network cameras enable coverage of a large area and extremely high image detail. They deliver 2592 x 1944 videos in H.264 and Motion JPEG. Each day / night camera features digital PTZ, multi-view streaming, and easy installation with remote back focus, pixel counter, and PoE (Power over Ethernet). 2-way audio, audio detection, video motion detection, active tampering alarm and a microSD / microSDHC / microSDXC slot for optional local storage are also supported. The cameras are suitable for use in airports, banks, schools, and stores.

Easy Installation with Focus Assistant, Remote Focus and Pixel Counter

Setting the focus on all cameras is made easy with the focus assistant, which is indicated with a flashing green LED when an image is in focus after manually adjusting the lens. Additionally, these cameras offer remote back focus, which allows the focus to be fine-tuned from a computer. The pixel counter further helps the installer verify that the pixel resolution of an object fulfills regulatory or customer requirements, such as, for facial identification.

Digital PTZ and Multi-View Streaming

All camera models support digital pan / tilt / zoom, which allow a selected area of interest to be cropped from the full view for viewing or recording, thereby minimizing the bit rate and storage needs. The cameras also support multi-view streaming, which allow several cropped view areas to be streamed simultaneously, simulating up to 8 virtual cameras. The cameras support multiple, individually configurable video streams in H.264 and Motion JPEG.
