Axis introduces a complete solution for HDTV-quality video surveillance in vehicles

  • 19 January, 2010 11:52

<p>Axis Communications today introduces a complete, IP-based mobile video surveillance solution consisting of a new series of network cameras and a network video recorder for use in buses, trains, subway cars and emergency vehicles.</p>
<p>AXIS M31-R Network Camera Series and AXIS Q8108-R Network Video Recorder are specially designed for easy and discreet installation, as well as reliable operation in vehicles. They are protected from dust and water and can withstand shock, vibrations and temperature fluctuations.</p>
<p>“The rugged AXIS M31-R cameras and AXIS Q8108-R recorder provide the transportation industry with the highest standard for mobile surveillance,” says Erik Frännlid, Director of Product Management, Axis Communications. “The products hold a number of transportation-specific certifications. They take into account the environment and surveillance requirements in vehicles and offer a complete solution for capturing, recording, managing and accessing high-quality HDTV video.”</p>
<p>The palm-sized AXIS M31-R cameras provide full frame rate video streams in H.264 and Motion JPEG in resolutions up to 1 megapixel, including HDTV 720p. AXIS M3113-R (SVGA) and AXIS M3114-R (1 MP) come with either a rugged RJ-45 or rugged M12 network connector. The cameras respond rapidly to changing light levels and employ progressive scan for clearer images of moving objects. The cameras are also designed for quick and reliable installation. For instance, the desired field of view and a leveled image can be easily achieved by using the supplied lens tool to direct and rotate the ball that holds the lens and image sensor. Power over Ethernet (PoE) support further simplifies installation since only one cable is needed for carrying power and video.</p>
<p>AXIS Q8108-R supports HDTV recording and has an integrated PoE switch that offers an easy and cost-effective solution for powering as many as eight network cameras recording at full frame rate. The network video recorder provides battery back-up to handle short periods of power drop and safe shutdown of the system. AXIS Q8108-R can be delivered as an out-of-the-box-ready solution with integrated hard disk drives and AXIS Camera Station video management software. It can also be customised to meet project specific needs, with options such as third-party software and support for wireless technologies such as WLAN, GSM, UMTS and GPS. Such options allow operation centers, for instance, to remotely access live and recorded video from a vehicle and receive information about its location.</p>
<p>The new products will be available in Q1 2010. For photos and other resources, please visit and</p>
