Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, introduces AXIS M20 Series. The new small bullet-style cameras are lightweight, yet extremely durable. They can be installed in both hot and cold weather and features an integrated sunshield for protection against sun and rain.
“Our new camera series is an ideal choice for companies looking for ways to roll out or expand their video surveillance monitoring with low costs. The affordable cameras are cost-effective and versatile with their small footprint, and they provide high quality video surveillance indoors and outdoors, day and night,” said Andres Vigren, Global Product Manager, Axis Communications. “The camera series offer a low unit price and a remarkably wide field of view. This means, more areas can be covered with a smaller budget. These cameras are an ideal fit for video surveillance within retail, banking, and healthcare.”
Thanks to an integrated back box, the bullet-style cameras are easy to handle and install, and they offer flexible mounting options ranging from wall, ceiling, pole and corner mounting. The cameras provide highly detailed images and complete coverage of retail stores, offices, lobbies, libraries and hallways with a wide field of view and high resolution. In case of an emergency such as fire, the water-resistant casing ensures continued video surveillance even if the sprinkler system goes off.
When installed at entrances and exits, an infrared light beam delivers high quality video surveillance even in the dark. Axis Corridor Format makes full use of the 16:9 aspect ratio allowing for efficiently monitoring of corridors and retail aisles by providing vertically oriented video streams.
AXIS M20 Series features two camera models. AXIS M2025-LE offers up to HDTV 1080p resolution and a horizontal field of view of up to 115°. AXIS M2026-LE offers up to Quad HD 1440p (WQHD) resolution and a horizontal field of view of up to 130°. Both models offer Wide Dynamic Range for scenes with complex lightning and Axis’ Zipstream Technology for reduced storage requirements. With Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology, only a single network cable is needed to provide both power and data, reducing installation time and costs.
AXIS M20 Series can withstand rough weather and is protected against dust, sand, salt spray and ice formations thanks to its IP66-, IK08- and NEMA 4X ratings.
AXIS M20 Series is supported by the industry’s largest base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner (ADP) Program and AXIS Camera Station. Third-party video analytics applications can be installed on the cameras via AXIS Camera Application Platform and ONVIF support allows for easy integration into existing video surveillance systems.
AXIS M2025-LE and AXIS M2026-LE are planned to be available in Q4 2016 through Axis distribution channels.
