Demanding security installations

AXIS 233D is designed for use in challenging surveillance applications - such as airports, stadiums, casinos and ports - where the ability to follow moving objects from a long distance and see great detail is crucial.

Powerful 35x zoom

With the powerful 35x optical and 12x digital zoom, AXIS 233D can zoom in on small and distant objects, allowing for example license plates to be clearly identified from a distance of 160 m (525 ft). Whether zoomed out or in full 35x zoom position, images are crisp, clear, and rich in color and detail.

Pan/tilt performance

With a maximum speed of 450º/second, and high precision low speed movement at 0.05º/second, AXIS 233D can follow a walking person at a distance of 400 m (1300 ft) and pan/tilt to any preset in less than 1.5 seconds. The freeze function holds the image while moving between presets, to make it easier to work with. The E-flip functionality electronically inverts the image 180º when following an object moving under the dome.

Autotracking

Autotracking automatically detects a moving person or vehicle and follows it within the camera’s area of coverage. This feature is particularly beneficial in unmanned video surveillance situations where the occasional presence of people or vehicles requires special attention.

Product review: PSI Magazine, United Kingdom, September 2007

"Now the performance gap has closed; the Axis dome can well and truly stand its own ground. Indeed, the 233D could be the product to tip a few installers into the networked age!"

Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)

AXIS 233D has 128x wide dynamic range, maintaining contrast to ensure high-quality video and detailed images even in very complex lighting conditions, such as bright sun, sharp backlight or shaded areas.

Progressive scan

With traditional interlaced scanning NTSC/PAL techniques, every image consists of two frames that are captured after each other and merged together. This results in degraded quality when freezing the image in recorded video. AXIS 233D instead uses progressive scan, capturing the full image at the same moment, which provides non-distorted, superior quality images with drastically reduced motion blur.

Electronic Image Stabilizer (EIS)

EIS reduces the effect of vibration caused by traffic or wind, giving sharper images. This feature is especially useful when AXIS 233D is installed in places subject to shaking or vibration, such as on a pole or close to a highway with heavy traffic.

Area zoom

AXIS 233D can simply and quickly pan, tilt and zoom to any desired part of a monitored scene. Mark an area and AXIS 233D will immediately zoom in to show a detailed view of that area.
