Axis Communications introduces AXIS M10 network cameras

The AXIS M10 network cameras are affordable, intuitive and reliable cameras from the market leader in network video offer best-in-class image quality and professional monitoring capabilities.

“AXIS M10 Network Cameras with their functional, smart design are attractive additions to our broad range of network cameras,” says Erik Frännlid, Director of Product Managemen t, Axis Communications. “The cameras offer a high-quality yet affordable video surveillance solution, fully taking advantage of the benefits of network video.”

All three models, AXIS M1011, AXIS M1011-W and AXIS M1031-W provide superior video quality at 30 frames per second in VGA resolution. AXIS M1011-W and AXIS M1031-W add the option of connecting over an IEEE 802.11g wireless interface with the built-in antenna, for easy and flexible installation.

AXIS M1031-W additionally features a passive infrared (PIR) sensor for detecting movement, even in the dark, and a white LED light for illuminating the scene automatically at an event or when requested by the user. Other features include two-way audio support with an integrated microphone and speaker, allowing remote listening in on an area as well as communication with individuals directly or using uploaded or recorded audio clips.

All cameras in the AXIS M10 Series provide multiple, individually configurable, high-resolution video streams in H.264, Motion JPEG as well as MPEG-4 Part 2 at full frame rate. H.264 compression enables optimization of storage and bandwidth efficiency by significantly reducing the bit rate. Using progressive scan technology, the cameras provide VGA images of moving objects without motion blur.

AXIS M10 Network Cameras are supported by the industry's largest base of video management software through the Axis Application Development Partner program as well as by AXIS Camera Station. The cameras will be available in January 2009 through Axis' distribution channels.
