AXIS P12 Network Camera Series and AXIS F Series now offer even smaller and more affordable indoor modular cameras that can blend into their environment. The new AXIS P12 cameras feature a slim main unit with a bullet-style sensor for easy and discreet installation on walls and ceilings, and a main unit with a pinhole sensor for integration in machines and for extremely discreet surveillance applications.

Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, today introduced two new AXIS P12 modular network cameras: AXIS P1254, featuring a mini bullet sensor unit, and AXIS P1264 with a pinhole sensor unit—both for indoor surveillance.

Both AXIS P1254 and AXIS P1264 deliver HDTV 720p video. Compared to the older AXIS P12 models, the new cameras have a smaller main unit, and offer better image quality in low and varying lighting conditions, improved video analytics capabilities and is also more affordable. Additionally, the cameras support Axis’ Zipstream technology for lower bandwidth and storage requirements, have a built-in microSD card slot for local storage and are powered by Power over Ethernet (PoE).

“Axis introduced the first modular network camera in 2012, and today we’re proud to launch Axis’ smallest bullet-style and pinhole modular cameras, AXIS P1254 and AXIS P1264,” said Fredrik Nilsson, VP Americas, Axis Communications, Inc. “These cameras offer improved image quality, Wide Dynamic Range for various lighting conditions and Axis’ Zipstream technology which can lower bandwidth and storage requirements by an average of 50% or more in some cases.”
