These cameras also offer increased processing power, allowing for greatly enhanced performance in image processing. Furthermore, they have also been equipped with a serial port for pan/tilt head which enables operators to remotely change the camera direction.

They 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.

The new models support edge storage and are equipped with a microSD/microSDHC-slot. Together with the free AXIS Camera Companion, this enables users to get an easy way to remotely view and manage video from up to 16 cameras per site. AXIS P1353/-E and AXIS P1354/-E are also equipped with a serial port for pan/tilt head and other accessories. They are quick and easy to install, including remote zoom and focus for fine tuning and pixel counter to ensure the camera’s angle of view is optimized for the area to be monitored at the required pixel resolution. 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 50 °C (-40 °F to 122°F).
