CHELMSFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Axis Communications, the market leader in network video, announces enhancements to its Zipstream compression technology to support the increased data streaming and storage demands of 360-degree panoramic cameras and 4K resolution. Zipstream ensures that important forensic details of video footage are maintained, while minimizing bandwidth and storage requirements by an average of 50% or more.
“Customer demands for video surveillance can appear contradictory: an increasing desire for improved quality, resolution, and coverage, with a simultaneous need to control costs in relation to bandwidth and data storage,” said Ryan Gregory, Director, New Systems and Solutions, Axis Communications, Inc. “Axis responded by continuously developing its unique Zipstream video compression technology, to include both panoramic and ultra-high resolution cameras.”
Axis also announced AXIS M3047-P and AXIS M3048-P Network Cameras, now offer the enhanced Zipstream technology to deliver cost-effective, 360-degree coverage. They are compact fixed mini dome ‘fisheye’ cameras that can provide complete coverage.
Featuring an attractive, smaller design than their predecessors, the new cameras are flat and subtle, without any dome over the lens, which makes them more discreet and eliminates the risk of reflections in the dome. Smoke-detector and vandal-resistant casings, as well as a black casing are available for both cameras. The cameras support camera-side as well as client-side dewarping. The smooth client-side dewarping in AXIS Camera Station or other video management systems can be easily performed in live view or on previously recorded material of the full 360° overview.
AXIS M3047-P, with a 6-megapixel sensor, and AXIS M3048-P, with a 12-megapixel sensor, both deliver full frame rate video, excellent image quality including overall sharpness and light sensitivity.
AXIS M3047-P and AXIS M3048-P are planned to be available through Axis’ standard distribution channels in June 2017 at the suggested retail price of $469 and $669 respectively.
