Axis Unveils Unique Direct Drive PTZ Dome Network Camera with HDTV Performance for Wall-mount Installation
CHELMSFORD, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
Communications, the world leader in network video surveillance,
today unveils AXIS P5414-E PTZ Dome Network Camera, the first in a new
line of uniquely designed outdoor-ready pan/tilt/zoom domes with "direct
drive" technology meant for wall-mounting. The new HDTV
720p-quality PTZ dome with 18x optical zoom is ideal for use in city
and perimeter surveillance applications, parking garages, campuses and
schoolyards, and outside of retail and medical buildings.

The intelligent direct drive pan/tilt system found in AXIS P5414-E
facilitates easy wall-mount installation and supports mechanical PTZ
endurance by limiting the amount of moving parts. The camera is directly
attached to the drive shaft of two motors - one for panning and another
for tilting the camera. With no mechanical parts such as belts or gears,
AXIS P5414-E creates a durable and highly efficient pan/tilt system to
provide customers with a reliable and robust PTZ camera. Other
innovations include a built-in wall bracket that eliminates the need to
purchase a separate mounting accessory, which provides additional
cost-savings and makes installation quicker and easier. See demo movie.
With the ability to pan 270°, AXIS P5414-E can also be mounted on the
corner of a building using a corner mount bracket to enable wide area
coverage and high optical zoom for detailed surveillance in HDTV
"About half of all PTZ cameras [installed today] are mounted on walls.
AXIS P5414-E addresses this market with a unique design," says Erik
Frännlid, director of product management, Axis (News - Alert) Communications. "The
result is an attractively priced, high-performance HDTV PTZ camera
that's easy to install."
AXIS P5414-E features an integrated sunshield designed for easy removal,
allowing customers to paint it to match the installation environment.
This sushield's sloping form helps the camera resist attempts by
vandals to pull it down. The camera has a hidden junction box that
supports two-way audio, a memory card slot, four configurable
inputs/outputs to external devices, and the option to use either 24 V DC
or Power over Ethernet Plus (IEEE (News - Alert) 802.3at). AXIS P5414-E also supports Advanced
Gatekeeper, which enables the camera to automatically pan, tilt and
zoom to a preset position when motion is detected in a predefined area.
AXIS P5414-E is expected to be available in July 2013 through Axis
distribution channels at the suggested retail price of $1599.
Features of AXIS P5414-E include:
HDTV 720p performance in compliance
with the SMPTE 296M standard for resolution, full frame rate, HDTV
color fidelity and 16:9 format.
18x zoom with autofocus in combination with HDTV resolution delivers
the advantage of a wider (16:9) field of view while providing
zoomed-in views with the same
level of detail as a standard resolution, 36x-zoom camera.
Multiple, individually configurable streams in H.264 and Motion JPEG
True day/night functionality with an automatically removable
infrared(IR)-cut filter for color video during day time, and
high-quality black and white video in low-light.
Intelligent video functionalities such as video motion detection,
Advanced Gatekeeper and audio detection, as well as support for
additional applications through AXIS
Camera Application Platform.
Outdoor-ready with IP66 and NEMA 4X ratings that ensure protection
against dust, rain, snow and corrosion.
AXIS P5414-E will be supported by the industry's largest base of video
management software through the Axis
Application Development Partner Program, AXIS
Camera Station and the complimentary AXIS
Camera Companion. The camera also includes support for AXIS Video
Hosting System and ONVIF
