Extended possibilities

Featuring a deep learning processing unit, AXIS M42 Series supports advanced analytics based on deep learning on the edge. These high-performance cameras also allow you to collect and analyze valuable metadata—on the edge—for real-time events, forensic search, and statistical purposes. With AXIS Object Analytics preinstalled, you can track whenever an object stays in a defined area longer than a user-defined time, for example, to detect loitering. The series also offers support for audio or I/O connectivity using AXIS T61 Series. Furthermore, it includes Axis Edge Vault, a hardware-based cybersecurity platform that safeguards the device.
