Superior video quality for professional indoor/outdoor uses

The AXIS 211 Network Camera is designed for professional indoor and outdoor security surveillance and remote monitoring. It provides superior image quality using progressive scan and offers built-in support for Power over Ethernet, motion detection and advanced event management.

Simultaneous Motion JPEG and MPEG-4

The AXIS 211 can deliver Motion JPEG and MPEG-4 video streams simultaneously, allowing for optimization in image quality and bandwidth. The MPEG-4 compression mode is ideal for applications where available bandwidth is restricted and higher frame rates are required.

Power over Ethernet

With built-in support for Power over Ethernet, the AXIS 211 is able to receive power through a network cable, which reduces installation cost and enables users to increase their security by consolidating the power source to a central location. The AXIS 211 fully supports the IEEE 802.3af standard and works with compliant midspans and switches. With Power over Ethernet, an Axis network camera can be set up in a way that enables it to continue to function even when there is a power failure.

The AXIS 211 is an ideal choice for securing offices, shops and other facilities.

"Innovative Achievement" award from Detektor International

AXIS 211 receives "Innovative Achievement" award from Detektor International. "Through combining simultaneous full frame rate Motion JPEG and MPEG-4 with a varifocal auto iris lens, integrated Power over Ethernet and powerful event handling with built-in video motion detection, AXIS 211 raises the bar for high resolution network camera."
