From hospitals and schools to banks and retail departments, this high-performing, discreet microphone is ideal for professional audio surveillance. It offers digital audio format with lossless transfer of audio signals, so it’s not affected by electromagnetic interference.
AXIS T8355 Digital Microphone is the first digital microphone with a S/PDIF output to carry digital audio signals between the microphone and network product. This hemispherical digital microphone collects sound from every direction (depending on your installation) to deliver high-quality recordings. Furthermore, AXIS T8355 allows for lossless audio transfer so every detail from the original audio recording is preserved.
Rest assured your microphone is working
AXIS T8355 offers a combination of supervised input and digital audio. This means you can always be sure that your microphone is up and running and hasn’t been tampered with. Because the audio stream features built-in metadata, it’s possible to trigger events based on the communication between the sensor and any network product. Triggers can occur if, for instance, someone cuts the cables or short-circuits the microphone.
Audio right where you need it
This compact microphone offers a broad range of mounting accessories to facilitate fast and flexible installation. Easily mounted on walls, ceiling, or in covert areas, it can be subtly concealed from view or visibly used as a deterrent depending on your needs. It can also be paired with AXIS Digital Audio Extension Kit making it possible to transmit the digital audio signal using an ethernet cable* up to 100 m (109 yards). And, thanks to its high resistance to electromagnetic interference (EMI), the cable can be safely placed near power cables and cables carrying high frequency signals. It’s also especially useful in locations where you need distance between an audio source and a network product. For instance, in casinos and airport security control where the network product is often installed in a control room, away from the audio source. Furthermore, AXIS T8355 is powered by the network product, so no additional cables or power supplies are needed, helping minimize effort and installation costs.
*The extension kit uses an ethernet cable for transmission but doesn’t use network protocols or send network signals over the cable.
