Axis Communications today introduces new fixed dome network cameras offering outstanding image quality including support for wide dynamic range (WDR) with ‘dynamic capture’. AXIS P3384 Network Cameras, available in indoor and outdoor-ready models, are suitable for installations close to large windows and entrances in buildings, in tunnel passages and other areas with strong variations in light. This makes the IP cameras ideal for airports, train stations, government and bank buildings, and for city surveillance.

The installer-friendly AXIS P3384 fixed domes offer outstanding video quality including wide dynamic range for challenging light conditions.
“After the successful introduction of AXIS Q1604, the first Axis’ cameras incorporating wide dynamic range with ‘dynamic capture’, we are now introducing our first fixed domes with the same level of WDR,” says Erik Frännlid, Director of Product Management, Axis Communications. “The new fixed domes provide clear images in demanding light conditions, by applying WDR ‘dynamic capture’ of scenes with great variation in light, and Lightfinder technology to handle extreme low light scenarios.”

AXIS P3384-V/-VE cameras provide HDTV 720p/1.3MP resolution based on a top-quality, 1/3" image sensor. All cameras in the AXIS P33 Series offer a modular design with quick and easy installation capabilities, including remote zoom and the pixel counter to ensure that the camera’s angle of view is optimized for the area to be monitored and the required pixel resolution. Remote focus is included to eliminate the need for manual focusing at the camera. The support for standard, environment-friendly Power over Ethernet requires only one network cable to carry both power and data. This is the case even for the weatherproof models that operate in extreme temperatures from -40 °C to 55 °C (-40 °F to 131°F). The highly efficient H.264 Main Profile option reduces bandwidth and storage needs with up to 20 percent.

The indoor AXIS P3384-V and outdoor-ready AXIS P3384-VE Network Cameras both come in vandal-resistant casings.

AXIS P3384-V and AXIS P3384-VE fixed dome models are supported by the industry’s largest base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner Program, and AXIS Camera Station. The cameras include support for AXIS Camera Application Platform, AXIS Video Hosting System and ONVIF for easy camera system integration and for application developers to provide the camera with intelligent capabilities. These cameras offer increased processing power, allowing for greatly enhanced performance in video analytics applications.

The cameras will be available in Q3 2012. For photos and other resources, please visit: www.axis.com/corporate/press/press_material.htm?key=p3384.
