The compact and versatile AXIS M31 Series provides excellent video quality at up to 4-megapixel resolution and adapts automatically to varying light conditions, even complete darkness.

Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, introduces the new AXIS M31 Series consisting of three indoor and three outdoor models. The new compact network cameras adapt automatically to changing light conditions, with built-in infrared (IR) illumination allowing them to capture images even in complete darkness.

AXIS M31 Series has a compact flat-faced design that suppresses reflections from the IR illumination. The casing is also available in black, and can be easily repainted for the camera to blend in with any environment. An integrated microSDXC memory card slot enables edge storage applications.

“The market demand for small, affordable fixed dome cameras with built-in IR illumination is strong,” said Fredrik Nilsson, VP, Americas, Axis Communications, Inc. “With Wide Dynamic Range the new AXIS M31 Series can manage all types of lighting conditions and Axis’ Zipstream technology can help users reduce bandwidth and storage requirements by 50% or more.”

The series offers great flexibility in field of view and resolution; the indoor AXIS M3106-L and outdoor AXIS M3106-LVE provide a wide field of view of 130° in 4-megapixel resolution; the indoor AXIS M3105-L and outdoor AXIS M3105-LVE offer HDTV 1080p video with a field of view of 115°; and the HDTV 720p cameras, AXIS M3104-L and AXIS M3104-LVE provide a field of view of 80°. All models provide frame rates up to 30 fps and feature Axis’ Zipstream technology that significantly reduces bandwidth and storage requirements.

The AXIS M31 Series is supported by the industry’s largest base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner (ADP) Program and AXIS Camera Station. Third-party video analytics applications can be installed on the cameras via AXIS Camera Application Platform and ONVIF support allows for easy integration into existing video surveillance systems.

The AXIS M31 Series is planned to be available in Q3 2016 through Axis’ standard distribution channels at a suggested retail price ranging from $249 to $469 depending on model.
