Axis Communications has just announced a series of intelligent and affordable HDTV-quality indoor fixed mini dome security cameras for surveillance use in places like retail stores, hotels, schools, banks, offices and other similar industries. These IP cameras only measure 4″ x 2″ and are adding to Axis’ M30 Series with the M3004 and M3005. The M3004 will have up to 720p HDTV and 1 MP resolution and the M3005 will have 1080p HDTV.
These low profile surveillance cameras will be on display next week at the National Retail Federation’s annual Loss Prevention Conference and Expo.
According to General Manager for Axis Communications Fredrik Nilsson, “As we continue to drive the video surveillance world from its analog past into the digital future, it’s important that we deliver high-quality IP cameras at an affordable price so system users large and small can enjoy the benefits of IP video. With support for Axis Camera Companion, hosted video and third-party VMS (video management software) from our Application Development Partners, the new Axis M30 Series cameras provide an HDTV-quality option in a fixed dome format that fits into any price-sensitive solution.”
The new Axis M30 cameras are designed for quick and flexible installation and also come with optional color skins that allow them to blend into different surroundings, depending on your needs. In addition to that, these cameras are dust-resistant and vandal proof.
These new cameras are supported by Axis Camera Station software and third-party VMS through Axis’ Application Development Partner Program and also support Axis Video Hosting System with One-Click Camera connection and ONVIF specification for interoperability of network video products. The M3004 will be available for $279 and the M3005 for $379 with a Q3 2012 release schedule.
