New aggressively priced Axis P56 Series cameras

Axis communications is launching the Axis P56 Series, which consists of outdoor-ready Axis P5635-E and Axis P5624-E PTZ dome network cameras for wide area video surveillance in indoor and outdoor environments.

“The introduction of the Axis P56 Series changes the price point and performance level of mid-range PTZ dome cameras in the security market,” says Erik Frännlid, Axis’ Director of Product Management. “The Axis P56 Series delivers all the major requirements for a PTZ camera at price levels that will be highly attractive for the majority of PTZ camera installations.”

The Axis P5635-E is ideal for demanding indoor and outdoor video surveillance applications such as city surveillance. It is an HDTV 1080p camera with 30x optical zoom, enabling fine details to be captured at a distance. It features a 360° continuous pan capability, with no mechanical stop, for fast camera repositioning and smooth, continuous tracking of an object.

The Axis P5635-E has day/night functionality and good low light performance. Its support for Axis’ unique wide dynamic range – forensic capture (120 dB) enables details in both very bright and dark areas of a scene to be visible. The camera also offers Axis’ electronic image stabilisation for better video and bandwidth savings in vibrating conditions.

The Axis P5635-E’s built-in intelligent functionalities include audio detection and advanced gatekeeper, which allows the camera to detect an object in a specified area and zoom in on it. 

Support for Axis Camera Application Platform enables other intelligent video functionalities to be downloaded to the camera. The camera also supports shock detection, which enables it to send an alarm when it has been hit. Other features in the Axis P5635-E include two-way audio, four configurable inputs/outputs for connection to external devices, Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+), 24 V AC/DC and an SD card slot for local storage of recordings.

The Axis P5624-E is ideal for retail surveillance in both indoor and outdoor environments. It is an HDTV 720p camera with 18x optical zoom. Like the Axis P5635-E, it features a continuous 360° pan, day/night functionality for superb low light performance, 120 dB wide dynamic range – forensic capture, advanced gatekeeper, shock detection, PoE+, and an SD card slot.

Axis P56 Series cameras are compatible with Axis T91B mounts for ease of installation.
