If ASIS wasnt enough, Axis continued to announce new cams after the show. With great anticipation, Axis is now in the Fish-eye, 180° and 360° game with the new M3007-P and M3007-PV. Both versions of this model is intended for indoor use. The core difference between the two is the housing. With “P” standing for Panoramic, and “V” meaning its vandal-resistant, the M3007-PV has a vandal proof cam that has the typical look of a dome camera. Axis gets clever with the M3007-P. With no vandal-resitant cover, and the small lens exposed, this model can be easily mistaken for a smoke detector and not the Panoramic IP camera it is. One might ask why Axis has waited so long to offer a fish-eye Panoramic cam? One key feature of this cam may answer that question. De-warping is a processor intensive process required for all 180° and 360° to display images the human eye is used to seeing. Without de-warping, you are only left with a globe like image that is difficult to comprehend. By de-warping the image captured by these kinds of cams, you can obtain multiple streams and video commonly seen in traditional cams. Previously, the intense process of dewarping these video feeds was left up to the CPU in the NVR. Manufacturers like ACTi, Vivotek, and GeoVision all have Fish-Eye, Panoramic cams, but the de-warping takes place in the NVR requiring more powerful CPU’s to handle the payload. With the Axis P3007 Panoramic cameras, the de-warping is performed all within the camera itself, thanks to the new and very powerful ARTPEC-4 chip. Simply put, this means more Panoramic cams per NVR, reducing cost and increasing coverage.
The second notable announcement from Axis is the improvement of the P13 Series. Announcing the P1353, P1353-E, P1354, and P1354-E, these new models will be offering the new Lightfinder Technology recently implemented in the P33 Series dome cameras. With the addition of the P1353/-V and P1354/-V, we should expect the older P1343/-V and P1344/-V to soon be discontinued.
Axis Communications announced its newest offering in high end PTZ cameras. These cameras are unique in the fact that they utilize thermal technology combined with an HDTV IP camera in a single housing. These cameras can easily detect intruders in complete darkness thanks to the thermal technology and then the high definition video can be used to identify them. Please click the links below for more information.
Axis Communications announced that it will be releasing two new models in the popular M11 series that will feature built in IR illumination. These indoor cameras will utilize IR LED Illumination to detect Objects up to 50ft in complete darkness. Another benefit of these cameras is that they will offer a built in SD card slot for edge storage. For more information and photos of these exciting new cameras please click the links below.
Axis Communications announced the release of an exciting new line of network cameras. The popular Axis P33 series dome cameras are being revamped with more features and reduced cost. The average savings is $100-$150 per camera over what the current line costs. The new Lightfinder technology seen in other Axis models is being incorporated into these cameras as well. There will even be IR models that that are designated with a –L that will feature adjustable IR intensity and angle. This is yet another example of how dedicated to research and development Axis Communications is. These new models are expected to be available in the Second Quarter of 2012, for a complete list of new cameras see below.

The GorillaNVR brand has been gaining a tremendous amount of traction in the NVR marketplace due to the value it provides.

In the ever changing network video world it is crucial to stay as flexible as possible and to not be confined to a specific brand of cameras or software. The GorillaNVR brand offers both rack mount as well as stand alone servers in a variety of sizes. For more information about these devices please click here.
