AXIS P32 Series Offers Even Better Image Quality (Video)

Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, has updated its popular AXIS P32 Series, a range of affordable cameras that provide outstanding image quality in any lighting conditions.

The successor cameras combine Axis’ Lightfinder technology, which delivers optimal light sensitivity with color video and Axis’ Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) Forensic Capture technology, which optimizes for forensic purposes by providing an exceptional level of image detail in both dark and bright areas of a scene.

(WDR: Wide dynamic range is a feature in some Axis network cameras that handles a wide range of lighting conditions in a scene. In a scene with extremely bright and dark areas or in backlight situations where a person is in front of a bright window, a typical camera would produce an image where objects in the dark areas would hardly be visible. WDR solves this by applying various techniques to enable objects in both bright and dark areas to be visible.

Many of the models have built-in infrared (IR) illuminators that can capture high-quality video in total darkness. Easy to set up and maintain, the cameras are ideal for the banking, retail, hospitality and education sectors.

“With these upgraded fixed dome cameras, we have raised the bar in terms of performance,” said Fredrik Nilsson, VP, Americas, Axis Communications, Inc.

“The enhancements made to the AXIS P32 Series include many of our newer technologies which can increase overall efficiency, more specifically, light sensitivity, forensics and storage and bandwidth requirements.”

Reliable and vandal resistant, the AXIS P32 Series includes dust and IK08 impact-resistant indoor models, as well as weather and IK10 impact-resistant outdoor models.

Both models have day/night functionality and support P-Iris control for optimal image clarity and depth of field.

The cameras’ varifocal lens with remote zoom and focus capabilities provides an efficient way of adjusting the field of view to a specific area of interest.

The eight successor models support Axis’ Zipstream technology, which can lower bandwidth and storage requirements up to 50% or more.

Additionally, AXIS P32 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.

AXIS P32 Series now provides even better image quality due to its new Mk II fixed dome models with upgraded sensors and image processing.

Third-party video analytics applications can be installed on the cameras via AXIS Camera Application Platform.

ONVIF support allows for easy integration into existing video surveillance systems.

Current AXIS P32 models will be discontinued and, when out of stock will be replaced by the corresponding Mk II successor model.

The Mk II models are compatible with existing AXIS P32 accessories and spare parts.

The updated AXIS P32 models will be available through Axis’ standard distribution channels at the same suggested retail price as previous models, ranging from $499 to $849 depending on model.
