Imaging and Optics
Equipped with a 4K resolution sensor as well as advanced WDR, the Axis M4218-LV produces rich, detailed footage at up to 15 frames per second. The integrated infrared LED with OptimisedIR technology ensures optimum scene illumination when there is total darkness. The unit’s 3.5mm – 6.6mm varifocal lens enables horizontal viewing angles of up to 93° wide and down to 47° narrow, whilst vertical views are 50° to 26° enabling a good range of zoom to clearly capture the target object or space. Moreover, Axis Privacy Shield employs AI-based dynamic masking allowing the concealment of moving objects, safeguarding the privacy of individuals when so required.
On-camera video analytics include Axis Object Analytics, Face Detector, Live Privacy Shield and Active Tampering Alarm. Easy to configure, these applications will give you flexible control over what the camera will be used for, and what kind of events you want to detect, and when. Whether you want to be alerted to security breaches, instances of loitering or over-occupancy, you can configure up to ten different detection scenarios. Using intelligent spatial behaviour analysis, Axis Object Analytics can filter out unwanted or irrelevant events, so you can focus on exactly what you need.
Additional Axis applications and third-party applications are supported to enhance the camera’s functionality for more specific requirements.
